    Will those not just break when they drag in the mud or get snow and ice on them or even from rocks hitting them?

    Lexan is really strong, it can take a good beating. How thick is the stuff your using Grizzbear?

    The problem with our current flaps are they hang down too far and are too stiff so they scrape on anything taller then a squirrel turd, I don't see how this is going to improve the worthless design that we already have :confused:

    ^^^:rofl:

    But, depending on the length....perhaps clearance for rabbit turds could be achieved? :poking:

    I wish I had the old-style rubber woven mesh thingies I had on previous Toyota pick ups! But...........I am curious as to how these will mount and perform!

    Not sure. Hard to tell from the pics...I guess I'd have to see them in person...but...I probably won't make the trip. Are they flexible? My concern would be that they might crack in the cold.
    I hope they work out well for you. Please update us with their durability. Thanks!

    Wouldn't they fog up or get a haze to 'em after a while?

    +1 for innovation, not sure how theyll hold up as in hazing and scratching... i think soft rubber would be the key for our trucks
