all yals trucks are gay, and stupid, and my truck is the best.....................


opinions... everyone is entitled to their own...



but on the fender flare topic, i personally like fiberglass fenders better, they cover the tires, and allow for more room to flex without rubbing.

Fenders or splash aprons.

(1) Except as authorized under subsection (2) of this section, no person may operate any motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer that is not equipped with fenders, covers, flaps, or splash aprons adequate for minimizing the spray or splash of water or mud from the roadway to the rear of the vehicle. All such devices shall be as wide as the tires behind which they are mounted and extend downward at least to the center of the axle.

(2) A motor vehicle that is not less than forty years old or a street rod vehicle that is owned and operated primarily as a collector's item need not be equipped with fenders when the vehicle is used and driven during fair weather on well-maintained, hard-surfaced roads.

lol humm. I dont think there is any rule on having the ENTIRE 35" tire showing from the front of the vehicle -laughs-



I think it may be a bit illegal, but hell, i doubt a cop woudl care.. most of the ones out here usually compliment a good looking truck, the only ones I have heard of getting pulled over are the rather illegal mud bogger 40" saftey hazards rolling down the road.

by the sounds of it from people that have been to Moab a few times.. theres a really good chance you will be pulled over if you dont have mud flaps or fenders.

my buddy got pilled over and got a warning about not having mud flaps.. but the truck is dove tailed, and its one of the biggest taco's ive seen thats wheeled..
