I looked for mudflaps and could not find anything that looked good... just left them off.

That's what I did. Then just drill em both at the same time. I put mine as high as I could to block the gap in front, so I'd minimize the mudflap look. Seems to have done the trick. I don't run rears, don't need them unless you want to protect the people behind you. I sometimes feel bad throwing rocks at people as I try not to, but it is handy for the assholes that are up on your tail.

I bet it is very difficult to find flaps for a truck that doesn't exist...

mount the mud flap. Repeat as needed.

I got a set of 4 PDPs, but I only run them in the front. Whatever clean up / damage I might mitigate with rear flaps is not worth it to me so that I can throw an epic, tractor trailer like wake in the rain.


Thanks for that.
