    Thanks. I just need some wheels... Unfortunately, with our first child on the way, the only wheels I'll be buying any time soon will be attached to a stroller.

    I have actually been considering at least putting the back ones on lately. I don't want to be responsible for breaking someone's window or something. Then again, I just took an informal poll earlier today and out of the approx. 30 trucks/suv's I counted, I only saw two with mud flaps.

    I broke the right front one off when I got a little ambitious at the San Diego Fiesta Island meet. I took the left front one off rather than buy a new one.

    I first took the front ones off because of rubbing of my tires. I then put them back on because I was already getting rock chips in my fenders. I had to trim them way back so they wouldn't rub or atleast only a little.

    So many people want larger tires and lifts on their toyotas, why don't they just make the wheel well an inch bigger? That's all I needed!

    Mine are still stock and will stay that way until damaged. The truck looks great with out them but, I don't want chips in my paint. So I will always have mud flaps on my truck.

    damn stock flaps, my back ones have busted on the sides facing the tire, one good bend in the other direction and they will most certainly fall off, the things get way to brittle in the winter, just took one go through a snowbank to mess those puppys up!

    I removed my front flaps because of 33" tires rubbing. I left the rear flaps on as a courtesy to anyone behind me.
