    Some moron stole my front passenger side mudflap the other day. Now what's next? My emblems??? If anyone has a *spare* flap they want to sell me, please let me know.
    Also, backed into a pole in the garage and busted my right tail light. Looking for one of those also..[​IMG]

    No *flap* about it[​IMG]

    You sure it didn't just fall off? My passenger side mudflap almost fell off but luckily I caught it when it was hanging by one clip.

    It didn't fall off, the bolts are all missing and I washed the truck the other day and washed them to get the mud off.

    Funny story, I acquired a passangers side mudflap just recently with all the hardware.

    For a good price I'm sure I can let it go.

    No, most of us know it's implied.

    Those plastic tabs that hold them on are not the best. I keep a few of them in the glove box all the time. I have my truck less than a year and i've replaced quite a few already. There is a good chance it fell off.

    Yep. The damn things practically drag the ground. I trimmed about 4" off of mine and they stopped bending like that. I don't have the front ones on anymore anyways. Had to remove them to fit the 285's.

    Not the OP. He Pmed me inquiring about it, most likely whilst loading a shotgun and starting his truck up.
