    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Well i wanted to keep my front mud flaps so that i didn't toss rocks at my doors But I lost the driver side this weekend doing a little light wheelin. Thankfully it just ripped off with no damage to the fender bolts.

    Does anyone have problems with rocks hitting the truck with the flaps off?

    Problems? I wouldn't consider mine a problem since they hit the undercarraige. I am lifted and running these:

    I have chips even with the flaps on. My tires LOVE to throw rocks though and I live on a gravel/dirt road. I only remove them when I go wheeling. I really want to get the rockers linexed but its so expensive!

    Cool what size tire are you running? I'm putting on 33" 12.5" 15" on before the winter and my new wheels are going to stick out of the fender a little and i thought I might have to take them off anyway but i live in California so I have to have the back ones on so I don't get a ticket.

    and a side note i don't mind getting the truck dirty i just don't want rick chips down the side.
