im diggin the 2 tone paint. id definitely ditch the mudflaps and look at getting a nice roll pan for the back. they have some on ebay for great prices. you could trim them up to make the cutouts for the dual exhaust. they have rousch ones pre-fabbed like that but not for your year

When your taking off your flaps...you should cut off that one lowest plastic part off your front bumper...I did and i like it so much more...it makes it look a little taller from the front!
