I have the weathertechs on mine and did not have to remove the rocker trim. Installation was a breeze.

I did break a tab on one of the rocker trim pieces because i had dropped a bolt between the the fender and fenderwell and tried to remove it to retrieve it. That aside, there is no reason to remove the trim to install the weathertech flaps.

I have the Husky flaps and you don't have to remove anything.

Most of the dealers around here install a set of rear flat mud flaps with the dealers name on them. I had the dealer throw in an extra set, I cut out a section of the flap where the molded part is in the wheel well and installed them. No drilling.

I'm a little annoyed with the mud flap thing. I bought the Mopar ones from the dealership and asked them specifically if they required drilling and they said no. I was told you simply remove some existing screws and then reinstall. Well, the flaps I bought, according to the instructions, require cutting and drilling. Granted it's just one hole but I'm not thrilled with drilling into my truck body. As for cutting them, they're pretty thick, not sure what I'd use to get a nice clean cut.

Maybe I should get the clear protective sheet that runs the full length of the rocker panels. I dunno.

Hey Neanders-

Yeah, for the fronts you will have to drill one hole on each side...for the back it is optional.

I see you have a 2500, and yeah, I remember the instructions saying that for 2500s and 3500, you have to cut the fronts. Like you say, that stuff is thick and taking an utility knife to them is asking for a slashed hand.

If I were you, I return those and have some Weather Techs sent...I am almost certain you'd have no drilling/cutting with those.

I am picking up the mud flaps with my truck on Satuday.
I plan on buying automotive 2-sided trim tape to take the place of the screw.
So, no drilling.

Seems I am not the only one with a mud flap issue. I'm not sure what extend-a-flares are or if that is what is on my truck. My truck has a one piece moulding that goes over each wheel area. I purchased ram flaps and went to install them this weekend and here's what I get: all the flaps appear to fit nice on the outside, but the screw holes do not line up with the mud flaps. This is because that moulding. Not sure if I want to screw new holes into my truck or if there is something else I can do. Are there specific mud flaps made for the Longhorns?

I think the fitted mudflaps have a disclaimer that states they do not fit if you have the side molding. Yes you have the factory extend a flares. Sorry. You can always take the flares off.

I used the factory flaps and they tend to rub the paint the edge is against. I bought a pack of the clear stone chip tape and put it under the flap edge..........JB.

Same here. The paint protection went on before the mud flaps.
