Fender flares is both functional and style element of your truck. They will protect the body of your Dodge from mud and debris from spinning wheels. At the same time they add that offroad style to it. Wider stance and wheels always improve the offroad qualities of your vehicle, but sometimes they stick out from fenders which doesn't look very nice. Again fender flares is something that will make large wheels look at home.

I think that I would want either body colored fender flares or bolt-on ones. The black plastic with no bolts looks a little cheap to me. Is it hard to find them in body color? Do you usually have to paint them yourself to get body color?

If you keep them black, then the ones with the bolts, if you paint it body colour, then the smooth ones.

It will depend on the size of tire you plan to use. If you put those large flares on stock tires, it will look little odd.

only reason i would paint them is because most of my driving will be in the city and very little rough off road, so that being the case, it makes sense that i paint them

Why does it matter if you are driving more in the city or off road? I wouldn't decide on color based on that.

Interesting.... Bushwacker OE style run about $463 a set. However Mopar lists OE for $376. Why would I op for Bushwackers?

If you are putting flares on for fender protection, then painting them sort of defeats the purpose. The first time someone opens their door into your fender the paint will likely chip. So, black for protection and paint for looks.
