OK this one is simple. If your like me and from somewhere where rust is a problem then you know that you might still need to have some front mud flaps to protect your rockers and such. Since the stock flaps are god awful ugly and Linex is super expensive here's what I did, super cheap and it only took me 15 minutes and in the end it didn't look too bad IMO. Let the pics speak for themselves.

They look ok I guess but they aren't going to protect anything they are too short. They probably aren't going to block any road spray at all cause it comes off the tire lower to the ground.

x2. At that length, you might as well take them off entirely.

Well your right about the moisture, but they do still protect from rocks and gravel pretty well and that's fine by me! I don't have many if any rock chips on my rockers and as long as I can keep that away then the moisture doesn't worry me so much. Still a decent cheap mod for what it works for IMO!

what's wrong with stock mud flaps??? huh??? HUH???
wait untill you remove them on the trail;) I cut mine shorter years ago because of that. It was good at stock height. but on a lifted truck theres not much point. but I still have them for inspection and they do help keep mud out of your windows a little.

and how much lift will make them pointless? will a Donahoe lift be enough to render them useless?

they will help some but not like stock.

Stock mud flaps at stock height just about drag on the ground. and if you flex the truck they will.

The point of this mod for me was to not remove them on the trail again by backing up and pinching them between the tire and a rock. yet they still offer some protection from flying mud and such.

i have short ones like that on my 90 winter beater. they dont really do shit and the door/rocker is covered in slush whenever its sloppy out. my stockers on the taco do a lot better and its pretty easy to remove 6 bolts if youre hittin a trail.
