    I pulled into my sons driveway today and the front mud flap hit the ground ,there only about 4 inches off the ground..Looks like I'm going to have to cut about 2 inches off.

    Yep, this is why I just took all my mudflaps off. Plus it helps you get some great looking mud streaks on the sides of your truck when you go off road!!!:eek:

    Thanks I think I'm going to put masking tape on the flap where it needs cut mark it and cut it with a jigsaw with a fine tooth blade ,then file the edge smooth.

    Tin snips work better IMO. Dremels/sawzall/jigsaws heat the plastic up and leave behind stupid little balls of semi melted plastic that have to be cleaned up afterwards.

    Good snips cut through mine like butter with a clean edge.

    Then I took them off..heh
