Ditched Mudflaps What do you think?

I ditched my mud flaps the other day I feel the tires look bigger lol. Plus even with them, I was slinging mud and crap up on the fenders anyways...so what the hell. O and the mothers mag n alum polish with a powerball does wonders.

there was just two hex headed or flat screws and a push in pin thingy in each one then they just pop off and I couldn't believe the mud and crap that fell out from behind them.

yeah it looks good if you have fender flares and stuff. If you have a regular xlt, then there are holes on the body if you take them off.

I threw on some aftermarket fender flares.. you could get a plastic retainer push pin thing like they use to hold plastic interior pieces.. paint.. and push in.. no hole.. no problem..

The only thing I dont like is ford made the mud flaps part of the fender flaires so when you take them off you can kinda notice there was something there at one time.

yeah, or the fender flares, i don't know how those would look. maybe i will try that plastic retainer push pin thing. or if i get nicer, bigger tires i can just roll with the fender flares..
