I would have agreed about the mudflaps until I took them off and looked again. It makes it look like the tail end sits higher. My plan is to have it off for the summer and then in the fall put them on again with the steps to keep the salt off my truck.
Tip for Scrambler:
Do it in halves, then you can compare. I took off the mudflap (driver side) first and compared, decided I liked it, then removed the driver side step, compared again and then tore the passenger side apart.
