I got the itch to take mine off after the last Knoxville meet in September. I was the same as you - kind of liked them, but loved it without them.

Looks good, man!

truck looks good. i have the brackets that look like a "W" behind the tires that hold the mud flaps on.. i left the brackets on. if i had that hole in the side of my truck that would be the least of my problems right now!!! haha got a much bigger ripple to smooth out..
