I recently removed all of the badges from my truck. I painted the front and rear Nissan emblems along with the driver and passenger side Cummins emblems flat black. I am thinking about painting the fender flares now. I wanted to wait a bit to see how well the paint stuck to the chrome emblems but I have since ran it through the car wash several times and so far they are holding up nicely. I am contemplating painting the other badges and putting them back on. What do you guys think? I also have the ARE Outlander topper shell on order and they are kind of 2 toned and i am getting the textured Matte Black. That is likely what I will paint the fender flares with. I'm going to paint the only chrome left on the truck also, them fog lights!

It was kind of a pain for my fat arms but if you raise the hood, you can barely get your arm behind the grill and there are 4 tabs that you have to push. There is one on top, bottom and each side. Shine a flashlight in there and you will see them.

I like the look of having the badges removed. I always remove them. As for the flares, I think color match looks the best.

The Titan XD on the door is a definite remove. Hated mine when I put the new wheels on. Looked ok with the contrast from the stock wheels, but in the absence of chrome it had to go.

I agree on the badges. I love it without them. I'm going to paint the flares mainly because I plan to get some new ones but not sure if i want color match or black. I'm going to paint these black and see what it looks like before i order the ones I want. Thanks for the input! Nice looking truck by the way!

Food for thought. Spray plasti-dip on your current flares for reference. If you like, you can peel and paint. If you don't you can peel and leave.

This is my opinion...and it's just that but I wouldn't paint those fender flares. That white is so clean I think black would look terrible.

So I have seen this on line and I like it but it could be the rims with it that makes it look good to me.

That is just hideous lol. You really like those flares?
Actually I do not like those flares. I like the black color around the fender though. Those things are huge for those factory size tires. lol! And I like those black fog lights.

Ok haha. I just dont think black is gonna look good. Maybe if it was just a plain ole white color, but that pearl white is too sexy to cover up

It’s been about a month but I lifted my truck, new wheels and tires.... Also just added a flat black exhaust tip to keep the soot of my truck...
