    pretty much, the plastic clips kinda suck and will most likely break, but thats how mine came off.

    That's pretty much ot, the push pins/rivets will most likely stay in the mud flap.
    I got lucky and did not break a single one when I removed them.

    Did you have the "mud flap line" in the paint??

    Yes. I used a big flathead to pop them off ans didn't break any. I took a jigsaw and cut about 4 inches off the length of them and put them back on. They look much better and still protect the paint.
