    Ordered some generic mudflaps, as I couldn't bring myself over $50 for pieces of rubber that are just made to catch mud, slush, road salt, sand, and everything else that you don't want on your pant.

    Luckily I found a set of mudflaps for $28 for all four on Amazon.

    Here's the link for the ones that I got.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002NIJUS?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    The install was so simple and only took me about 20 mins

    Here is what the mudflaps look like, they have a simple but nice mountain scene engraved in it

    The mudflaps did come with 2 packs of screws, however I used the stock screws

    There are three screws on the rear tire wells and 2 screws on the front tire wells

    As you can tell, there are no holes or markings on the mudflap, this is because they are generic, however no worries, here is the best way to mark the flaps in the perfect spot. Here is where some of your wife's stuff comes in handy, aka NAIL POLISH

    I took some nail polish and 'painted' the face of all bolts in every wheel well


    After all bolts are painted take each mud flap, line them up where you want it, I tried to take the top of the mud flap and line them up with the little notch in each wheel well, pictured here

    [​IMG]


    Now take the mud flap and press the flap against the bolts, and now you get this

    Now I took a 5/32" drill bit and drilled a hole in the middle of each marking, after all the holes were drilled in each flap I then took the screws and drilled them through the flap

    [​IMG]


    After all the screws are drilled into the flaps just install the flaps into the appropriate location, you can see how well the screws line up

    Tighten down all the screws, I started the top screw, and then the rest. Tighten down the bottom screw first and then the middle, then the top (for the rear flaps install).

    Here is what they look like installed

    mats, flaps, and stickers. Extang solid fold 2.0. Mobtown sliders and full skids. AVS vents
    Picys no worky! Would be nice to see how they look on the truck. I got weather techs cause I wanted them molded to the body without having gaps, and/or the need to drill the new flaps.

    Cleanest mudflaps I've ever seen on a dirty truck.:)
    I've had the same ones for a few weeks and I like them. I did add a few more screws for the hell of it.
