Here's what I mean. You see how in this picture the top of the flare is pretty much even with the line where the hood and fender meet?

I'm looking for metal flares that are designed the same way. All the ones I can find stop lower, like this Metalcloak flare.

While I do realize that the aftermarket flare still offers more clearance than factory, it quite frankly just doesn't look as cool as the factory flares. The Bushwacker HyperForm/Rugged Ridge Max-Terrain flares would be my first choice, but I've read too many complaints about their durability and am very hesitant to go that route. The Rugged Ridge Metal Max flares look better than most other metal flares, but they are still the "lower" design and there doesn't seem to be much real world info about them.

Out of curiosity what is the advantage to switching to metal flares that look as close to factory as possible?

If you are not doing it for some sort of performance benefit and you wheel the vehicle you might want to consider what happens when a metal flare encounters a rock or tree vs what happens when a plastic one hits the same obstacle. .

What would that sound like on a gravel road or anything picked up by your tires?

It would sound like crap I think, just like metal inner fenders.
One could coat the underside with a rubberized bed liner or the like to help I guess.

I don't want metal flares that look like the factory flares, I want metal flares that go up as high as the factory flares. The Nemesis flares that @DLW linked are a perfect example of what I want ?
