    Just the back anyway.
    Heard it from a local fellow Az DPS will be watching for flap violators to collect some more money, so I will be a sheep and put mine on untill I go back off road.

    I did use the plain ones so no one knows I have a 4X4 ;);)

    Softopper, Bilstein 5100's @ 1.75 in the front, TSB Rear, 17x8.5 Lvl 8 Guardians, 265/70-17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, Scooped, Anytime fog mod, Osram Nightbreakers, LED Interior lights, Debadged, Painted valance, Removed rear head rests, De-flapped, Hidden Hitch installed, Weather Techs, Flyzeye'd A/W/A, Cover Kings,... oh and the hot wife mod.
    6) Does my vehicle need mud flaps/mud guards?

    Answer: Non commercial vehicles (under 8,000 lbs.) need fenders or mud guards (mud flaps) within 27 inches of the pavement behind all wheels. Commercial vehicles need fenders or mudguards (mud flaps) within 10 inches behind all wheels. (ORS 815.180)
    Fenders and mud guards (mud flaps) must cover the entire tread width of the tire(s). (ORS 815.180)

    7) How far can a vehicle sit off the ground before mud flaps are required?

    Answer: For a vehicle that is less than 8,000 lbs the law states: "...fenders or mudguards must extend in full width from a point on the wheels that is above and forward of the center of the tire over a point at the rear of the wheel that is not more than 27 inches above the surface of the highway." ORS 815-180 (2) (c) The issue is not how far the truck can sit off the ground so much as making sure that fenders or mud flaps are in place not more than 27 inches from the surface of the highway.

    FROM: http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/TS/Veh_Equipment.shtml

    Also, it seems the 27" measurement is from the Fender just behind the wheel to the ground.

    I would shoot myself in the head if I had worry about stuff like this... Thank God for backward-assed southern states. Here in "The Heart of Dixie" they don't even care if you have fenders... or beds...

    People behind or around you with windshields tend to think it's necessary.
