hahaha smakes! a very "provocative" suggestion. I may just take em off for the time being.... although I do want to take GreyGhosts suggestion by checking the state laws... my internet sucks and to do the needed research i would need to access my dads computer at his shop (Using Broadband rather then Dialup... doing this will save me hours) Thanks for the input guys...one couldn't even dream of finding this information anywhere else! I wonder if Fords, or an aftermarket supplier makes an Up-scale size of these mudflaps for these bigger breas.... i mean BFG AT K/O 32's HA!

hmmm... been thinking about it....

I just like the look of a mudflap... They make your tires appear to be bigger and having mudflaps is just common curtosey for the drivers on the road. Esspecailly in Michigan.. our roads sssuck. Just looking at it logically guys.

I mean there has to be bigger ones that say like "Ranger" or something.... I d k... if there is no other mudflaps out there on the market right now i mine as well take em off seeings they serve no purpose.... and there is where i make my decision...
