Painted fender flares?

I have an '87 that i'm putting Bushwacker flat flares on and don't know if I should leave them black or spray them to match body color. Not sure if it will look like a JK with them matching the body.

Yeah I don't think you'll have any issue with it looking like a JK, my personal opinion is that painted fenders have no business on a Jeep. Those YJ Saharas started a bad tradition.

Do what you like as far as paint matching your fenders. The Saharas look amazing.

I've seen them bedlined a different color than the body, like an orange body with light gray flares, I think it looks good if you can find a color that pops with your body color.
