Trim the front ones 3-4" and call it good.

RokBlokz come with all the mounting hardware for $120 for a set of four, easy to install with an offset screwdriver.

Leave them on. Last thing I need biking is rocks flying towards me b/c someone thinks their truck looks cooler w.o them. Keep them on so it looks more like a truck, and its the right thing to do.

Why is there a law for flaps on trucks, but not SUV's?

This.. Cyclists are DB's. You cant be a pedestrian and a motorist, make a fucking choice-- you dont get the best of both worlds.

About the mud flaps.. I took the fronts off and left the backs on. I lost my front right one the first weekend I had my truck, on an ATV trail.

Trim,Trim, I have mine due to the fact I run a lot of gravel roads and want to leave paint on steps and rocker panels,but a nice trimming will make them look better and they won't flap in the wind.

I trimmed 4" off the front & 1" off the rear because they were dragging off road when stock.
Now with 33" tires & 3" lift I wish I hadn't trimmed them.

I trimmed the front to be the same distance from the ground as the rears. Look better, and they haven't been ripped off yet.

After reading this thread, I walked out to the garage with a straight edge, a marker and some tin snips. 10 minutes later, my front flaps were 4 inches shorter.

Looks so much better.

Interesting how well the mud spray pattern matches the expected dimensions:



I'm surprised you don't rub with 33" tires, though.

With 4.5" BS. Better for looks & stability, worse for mud spray.
If I hadn't trimmed 4" off the front it might not have hit the doors.

You haven't had any new mods lately, and I have a set with 5 miles on them if you need them...
