    Shipped via UPS, would have been quicker (and probably cheaper too) via USPS. I'm betting on the 6th, not before.

    Got them installed, took about 30 minutes as I used the phillips head screws they supplied, it took me a few minutes to find an offset phillips to be able to install the rear mud flaps, I guess that is why I saw in the thread that some folks were reusing they ones the removed from the holes and were just leaving the inside long screw with the spacer completely out. They do look good, will post a pic later today.

    Nice! Mine took about 30 minutes to install as well. Great fit, great product, at a great price.

    I just used a small ratchet with a Philips head bit into a socket, super easy.

    As promised. Rek Gen normal size installed. Install was easy. Used existing screw holes. Only problem I found was that they either packaged the screws incorrectly, or I just found a better way to mount the flaps. My "front screw package" came with long screws for the inner most hole (the one you put a spacer on) that were shorter than the long screws for the rear. My advice is to swap those long screws around. Use the longest two screws for the front flaps and the second longest screws for the rear inner most hole that requires a spacer as well.

    Quality feels legit. They are heavy for only being 3/16".

    Good luck everyone :cheers:

    Can someone take a picture of the front flaps from inside the wheel well? I want to see how they sit in the wheel well, for clearance reasons.

    Is anyone running these with 285/70/17 tires and a 2.5” ish lift such as 5100/887/Deaver AAL ? I’m just trying to plan ahead for when I install everything and want to have some flaps ready to put on when needed,

    I have no lift on my truck currently and have tons of clearance. These appear to be very similar to the Rokblock mudflaps that are available. I would try searching their experience with your similar setup as those flaps are more popular.

    These look like nice quality. Are they really flexible enough for off-road?

    I would say so... I met with another local member last week, who has the rokblokz. Pretty similar. My RekGen seemed a little heavier duty, just by glancing, but quite similar over all.

    I went with the XL. My phone's camera is busted, and the photos were so blurry that they would be useless to y'all.

    Set as far in as they will go, the top of the little angle portion just meets fenderwell, in the rear. Up front, set in all the way,... the top of that angle is about half way in. There is about an 1 & 1/4 to 1 & 1/2 " they could be slid out.
