Hey oz... I cut my flaps today to see how it would work. I left mine the full width(looks like fabulous narrowed his) and left about an inch stick up onto the body mount. I heated them and bent them backwards a little on the inner edge to keep em tight on the body mount. Took it for a ride this afternoon and no rub. Ill get a new set and do em right cause one side doesn't cover the body mount and has a big gap. Ill post pics when I get all that done.

The coastal snow I get in my area is more like slush , so mud might be a good comparison .

You're running wheel spacers too right ?
