Took mine off a few days ago after buying my truck last week. They're just too long. The only downfall is the passenger side has some scuffs where the flap was. I've got running boards so I think they'll take the brunt.
Maybe I'll search for the link about trimming them.

^ I just trimmed my fronts to match the back. It was about 4 inches that I took off of them, used a pair of tin snips and just laid on the ground to make the cuts. Used a piece of cardboard to get a scribe of the original profile of the flap and cut the cardboard and then used a black sharpie to mark the cut profile onto the flap up 4 inches from the bottom. Had to change the profile a bit on the inside section of the flap ( toward the truck ) with eyeball precision because the flap gets wider as it goes up. A good strong pair of scissors will probably cut it too.

OFF!
Take them off before they did themselves into your fenders. By then it will be too late and you'll have the outline of them embedded into the fender.

Cut mine today. Very happy with the result. Still have the protection of the flaps but without all the ugly.

I second what Wilson said, I did the same to my PreRunner, fronts off. Mainly because my truck is 2wd with a leveling kit so it won't block alot anymore and most of the slosh and debree will be shot from the back wheel well anyway...if I am crossing a bit of mud or doing any dirt road riding I do notice alot of mud slung on my front doors, but then again take it or leave it, a few nicks and slashes won't kill it, it's still a YOTA!!!

Off with them...if you trim them where the nerf hits it they will look too short. Just sell them, and buy a some of that clear bra film to protect your paint.

Way too short if you clip them at the nerf bars. Just take them off and get a few bucks while they're still in good condition.

I quite quickly decided to get rid of mine when I caught all four of them rolling over a curb in a parking lot. WTF?? It wasn't even that tall and I was angling for a prime parking space!

Took mine off the day after I bought the truck. The factory side steps came off two days later.

I just took mine off and used black "trimbrite" tape to go over the edge where the flap touches the body to keep it from 'etching' works good , can't even notice it

That's what I plan on doing. Around here, they "salt" the roads with gravel and rock salt so it gets pretty nasty.
