ive seen a few trucks where the flaps on the 2nd gen's, which are very stiff, come down on something and rip the entire fender flare off. so trimming them will help.. they also move in the wind and begin to cut into the paint..
yes you will get rockchips if you take them off..
best bet is to do what you want.. which frying pan is best?
I took my fronts off.. and left my rears on.

No no no, you guys are all wrong.

I don't like how far down the front mudflaps hang down so I used to just have my rear mudflaps on, but decided to trim all 4 about 4 inches or so and install the fronts as well. I offroad moderately and consider it a decent compromise plus I like the way it looks. I run 265/75R16 BFG AT's with 4.5 backspacing and have no rubbing issues with them. If I were to go up to a 285 I'd probably have to remove the fronts. This setup works fine for me. Just like others have said, it all depends mostly on how you plan to use your truck.

I vote on but you wouldn't have a problem selling them. I know the drivers behind you would appreciate them on along with some law enforcement.

yea man you can get different colours if thats your thing also...just to match up the truck colours. or have flaps that stand out and get bright colours.

but where my 2011 sti was low to the ground..in the alberta (canada) weather i didn't want it to be cold as fuck out and hit a speed bump or hole or what ever and bust mud flaps...so came across this company and was amazing. 280.00 for a set of 4 flaps and about 20-30 min to slap them on. done deal.

Mud flaps are so cool, Nissan puts them front of the wheels, too.

It's nothing compared to what can happen to your paint without mudflaps (or ones that are too short):

If you're not off-roading at all leave them on. If you do a little, trim them a few inches. If you decide to go off all the time, take the off. Like several others have already said, they protect more on than off under normal conditions.

As always, just my 2 cents.
