    I took the OEM one's off and put on the Husky brand and 2 days later took the Husky flaps off. I think they are to rigid, so every bump I hit you could here them making a noise. And they were on as tight as they could be.

    Trim the ones you have and save yourself some dough.

    Takes maybe a half hour.Cut one and use the residual from the first to cut the second so they match.

    Takes even less time if you really don't give a crap whether they match. Tin snips. 5 minutes total.

    Yeah but the sandpapering of the edges can add a solid 45 seconds to the job, ha.

    I bought weathertech flaps. They fit in the factory holes and they are much shorter than the stock. Haven't ripped them off yet and its been 2 years or so.
