Mud flaps

Just wanted to get your guys opinion on mud flaps. I just removed my front flaps to stop tire rub, should I remove the back ones too? I kind of like the look of the rear ones, they have that '4x4' graphic on them and I also like the functionality of them. Do you think it will look goofy to run with just the rear? I'm torn right now...

Instead of starting a new post, I'll ask my question which is similar to this one.

First off I need mud flaps on my truck, I live down 1 1/2 miles of dirt road and the chips from small rocks would be really bad.

What I dont like about the stock mud flaps is they rub the ground, pavement when I go over a bump. I'm wondering what others are doing about this, or what kind of other options there are.

I never had that problem. My stock mud flaps tucked into the wheel wells pretty good. I have speed bumps in my neighborhood and never had a problem. What kind of bumps are you going over? Pothole type bumps?

I've actually even rubbed on large speedbumps(big speedbumps in NM). I took my truck in the mountains and I was worried I was going to rip one off.

I forgot to look, do you have the 4x4(I think so), I'm sure ours are the same.

Here's my truck, it's hard to tell but the mud flaps only sit like 4 to 5" off the ground. Like I said, I like the mud flaps, they're just rigid and have no flex, I'm just worried I may lose one if it gets hit to hard.

I think I'm gonna take them off just to even things out.

oldtimertoyota- Yeah they are the 4x4 ones. I think the difference must be our tire/wheel size. Mine are 20" rims so that must give me the added clearance to not have problems on a regular basis.
