Over the years I have heard comments on how people don't like the fact that GM full size trucks have rectangular fender wells. I personally like the way most of them look as they are. The new 2014+ trucks are definitely the most squared off since they started that trend in 1973.

I got a little bored this morning and did a Photoshop comparison of my truck as if it had rounded fender wells like a Ford or Dodge.


While this is NOT the best Photoshop job in the world to judge off of, do you wish GM made their truck fender wells more rounded like Ford and Dodge?


Here is a quick comparison:

Definitely not... everything else would need to change about the body to make it look more like a Ford... not a bad photo shop either man

Nice photoshop actually! I'm kinda on the fence, i really like the square fender wells, but after seeing your PS it would look really good if they were round. GM should make this an option.

Great photoshop but it looks horrible like that. The entire body would need to be changed

I do like the rounded better as the truck doesn't look like one big box, but definitely would need a little bit of adjustment to the rest of the body to make it work. Boomer ur truck looks pretty sharp tho! Actually saw a 14' chevy Silverado rally edition with the black 22s this morning and I gotta admit it looked pretty sweet!

I like the squared. Nothing wrong with being different from Ford and Dodge.

I wish they were rounded so it would be easier to fit big tires on GM trucks. As they currently sit, you have to lift them higher to fit the same tires. That ends up exposing a ton of fender well, whereas big tires fit well in Dodge and Ford fenders.

I voted leave as is, but honestly I would like them somewhere in the middle. I think nbs 99-06 had the best combination of both.
