    I took my mud flaps off a long time ago because of rubbing. Has anyone used the new Husky mud flaps without any rubbing issues?

    The Husky flaps hug the body contour better than OEM, and the inboard edge recedes away from the tire: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/7495-mud-flaps-17.html#post5122778

    With 33" tires, some users have to trim away the lip of the fender flare that wraps around the bottom of the fender. If you had to do that, then you'll need to trim the flap. If you didn't have to trim the flare, you may get away with not having to trim the Husky flap either.

    Note this line in the Amazon listing:
    "The product is sold in pairs"

    According to the fit list,

    the same PN is used front and rear. You'd need to order two sets to cover a whole truck. It's a semi-generic flap that works on other vehicles like the Grand Cherokee and Mercedes ML, so presumably you will have to drill holes on the flap to install it.

    I had to hold each mudflap in place and drill three holes through the flaps and into the plastic fender flares, and then used the screws provided. If you ever switch mud flaps they will cover the holes you drill.

    These flaps are ugly. :D Powerflow designed a wrinkle into each flap, so the flap can flex to fit a wider range of vehicles.

    Eh, the price was right. My truck came with two mud flaps, I sold them both, bought the Powerflow ones, and came out $40 ahead :D. Then again the Husky mud flaps aren't that much more...

    Not a bad idea, may have to do the same.

    I bout mine with 2 flaps last week, the dealer says the truck will pass inspection, wonder if I can slip the inspection guy a 20 to say it needs mudflaps so the dealer will fit the bill
