    well,here goes. reading here on our wonderful forum about taking off the mudflaps.Why would we want to,except for the 2011, they hang low like my dick.
    anyhow I take mine off,drive around for awhile and don't really like the
    splatter on the door.(mudflaps really do work)

    heres where i need help.

    I decide to put them back on,but before I do I bring them in the house put them in the sink so I can wash them. My wife has spent most of the day cleaning cause she's got friends coming over,and blows a hissyfit,
    my question, was I wrong, I did clean up, oh and i'm shitfaced now.

    and i do recommend taking the flaps off every once and awhile to clean
    the crap that builds up between them and the paint.

    i remain
    george and kanoa :D:D

    i took mine off but a nice saskatoon city police officer gave me a ticket for not having fronts and the backs being too small so i had to go buy 4 new ones today. so i would keep them on if the alberta laws are the same as our pussy sask laws.

    Dude, you were going to be wrong regardless of how clean the house is so you did the right thing by drinking.

    x2, if the wife is pissed, you were wrong... You could just leave the flaps on and you'll never see the dirt behind them, which is why mine haven't been off in 3 years and never will be. I'll trim them up eventually but they're staying on the truck.
