Icon8 factory mud flaps. Any ideas?

I want to remove the mudflaps on my 99 ranger. However they are molded so that they fit the same lines of the fender flares.

If I pull the mud flap off it leaves a corner of the fender exposed an looks tacky.

Any ideas on getting around this? Have been toying with the Idea of taking a cut off wheel an cuttin the mudflap off but leaving enough that the fender flare looks complete.

Anybody do this or have you done it a different way that got rid of the flaps but left the truck looking complete?

Thanks
steve

i think mud bogger has a flare side ranger, which the rear mudflaps are "moulded" to the ends of the wheel wells. unlike the styleside rangers which are bolted on the ends of the wheel wels.

Look close where the mudflap an fenderflare meet. You can see The corner that I'm talking about.If I remove it then the corner of the steel body is hanging down. Its like that on all 4 of them.



If ya look close you can kinda see it on the front as well.


I'll throw up a pic of it without the mudflap in a lil bit.
