2005 body colored fender flare replacement
I have a 2005 jeep rocky mountain edition with body colored fender flares and I broke the front driver side one. I want to replace it with a paintable one, but all I can do is find them for 180 which is a little shocking considering you can get a set of four plastic ones for less then that.

Any recommendations on where to get a better deal on oem style paintable fender flares? It does not have to be oem, but oem style. I figure there has to be some aftermarket cheap paintable fender flares out there.

Here check this out: Original Replacement Parts 55254919 - Drivers Side Front Fender Flare for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
$39.99 for the drivers front flare that can be painted.

Here's one from Amazon for $34.94 and might have cheaper shipping:

I doesn't say paintable.
I want to buy it, but is this the same size as the rocky mtn edition one and how do you know its paintable?

They're all paintable. Proper surface preparation is key. I believe your Rocky Mountain Edition is nothing more than a Sahara with a sticker package and a few amenities.

Edit: I apologize but the fender flare you need is 1" wider than a standard flare. You would need to buy a Rubicon OEM flare and paint it.
