    Revtek 3" Leveling kit with 1.25" in rear. Grillecraft mesh grill with TRD emblem, Hella 500's mounted behind grille, horn relocation, blacked out lower valence, allpro offroad bumper, blacked out roof, and so much more to do...
    So, today I removed my mud flaps and started to wonder if anyone has had issues with crazy damage to your truck as a result. I pulled them off to accommodate larger tires, and then noted that alot of trucks do not have flaps at all. I know that some damage is inevitable, but over time, what should I expect...and besides, any ideas if Texas does or doesn't like those of us with big tires and NO flaps..?

    I took my front ones off about a month ago, haven't noticed anything but a little extra mud on the door if i go through a big puddle, nothing big.

    I'm pretty sure Texas doesn't give a f*** whether or not you have mudflaps. I see 3/4 and 1 ton 4x4 trucks running without them all day. That said, I trimmed my front flaps to even from the ground with the backs. I prefer the look and function over having nothing there at all.

    I've had mine off for 3 years. It has taken it's toll some on my rocker panels. Nothing too major but some paint chips and some wearing of the paint in spots.
