I didn't get much horsepower per flap removal but the torque gains are crazy! And your truck is probably new enough to not be dirty underneath but its sortof noticeable that i removed mine because the plastic did some damage.

i took mine off, but then realized there is a friggin small screw hole going right threw the body, and since my truck is red its so noticeablle so i put them back on. i dunno if its this way on stylesides, but all flaresides are.

there is also 5 long screws if you plan on taking the mud flaps off

I took mine off because when I was off-roading my truck wouldn't get dirty, that made me mad! I think the also make the truck look wimpy.
