Thanks, I like them. They are far enough down and back to protect the trailer, but I don't have to lift them on and off with the ProPride "stinger".

If I do want to take them off, it's just two bolts and about five minutes.

That's my only Complaint

That's my only complaint with my F-150 - no factory mud flaps. For what we pay for these vehicles, they should come standard. Nice mud flaps by the way. That's exactly what i am looking for. Thanks for posting.

Quiet as it's kept, a huge percntage (70-80%?) of truck owners never get off pavement to need MUDflaps. If it was big on customer "needs" you can bet automakers would add them.

Roadmaster makes some nice removable mudflaps, that attach to a 2" hitch.

I recently bought them for my Airstream Interstate, to protect the front end of my toad. When I'm not towing, I take them off. See Roadmaster RoadWing Removable Mud Flap System.

The Tundra is the first pickup I've owned that came with nice splash guards from the factory. I added mud flaps and fender flares to other pickups and vans that I have had in the past- a 1987 Mazda B2000, a 1995 Nissan King Cab, a 1997 Nissan King Cab, a 2006 Chevy Express- my 1999 Nissan Pathfinder has nice splash guards from the factory. I'm sure the mudflaps are available as dealer accessory items. I got the Chevy ones from Chevy.

It seems to me that the purpose of the mudflaps is to keep the debris from hitting your own vehicle and for protection of the traffic behind you. It doesn't have so much to do with going off-road. I have put factory flaps on my truck, grand cherokee and honda civic. I can really tell the difference in the amount of road rash, mud and cow manure on the rocker panels versus previous vehicles owned.

The "splash guards"as the factory calls them help to keep the vehicle clean. Without them it looks terrible when you wash your ride then drive through a puddle. The mudflaps may also protect your own rear view mirrors and other motorists' windshields and side windows from tires slinging debris.
