i took my front and back mud flaps off, I personally think it looks alot better without them, the only down side is i have chrome tips on my exhaust so they dont stay clean and shiny.

I did my lift and with 33" tires i didnt want to be an @ss and kick up debris on the highway so i painted the rear flaps all black and just put those on. They look great and luckily i didnt cut them because with the bigger tires and lift they actually look smaller and proportionate - not like semi-flaps

Only if the tire extends past the fender and the center of the axle is past the bottom of the rear of the fender. The mudflap acts as a fender extension. It's enforced about as much as the cell phone law.

I have only heard of one instance of it being enforced and it was my boss who has this huge F-350. He just got a warning. He basically told them to piss off.

I definetly think that it looks better with them off, but they do a really good job of keeping the side of your truck clean.

I took mine off, after breaking one.

I REFUSE to pay Toyota over $100 for a single stinking mudflap.

Is what hose, soap and water is for.

They don't really do all that much in anything other than a slight rain.

I live down about 1 1/2 miles of dirt road, without those mud flaps I would be getting tons of chips. I don't like that I rub the flaps on speed bumps or when I'm off roading, guess I'll just have to be careful!

I took the front ones off after I hooked one on a stump backing up.

Today I had to chain up to get home from the woods...the back ones are coming off next! PIA.

I am really surprised that the oval bars are that much longer, even with a double cab. I have an access cab with the round bars and they didnt come close to hitting the flaps. However, I did remove mine as I had some rub issues when I went with the larger tire and yes, they had already "etched" the fender. Hopefully I will be able to buff that out.

This seems to be a big decision for us they were on or off, (me too) but I dont think anyone else would even notice either way.
