Nice Truck,

I installed the same mud guards and they were great for few days of winter and salt we got, now i ordered the fender flares to go on them but will have to modify them to fit with the mud guards. As for the installation of the mud guards, I had no modifications to make, no extra holes to make, it uses the screws that were already on my truck and the plastic clips that held the little plastic piece I had to remove to put those guards on. I kept all the spare pieces in case one day i change my mind and remove them.

For the rubber mat, looks nice, great for dent protection but I tend to think like huntergreen, you might want to pull it up every now and then to see how the bed is feeling with a condom over it.

As far as the factory mudguards go, there is definitely an additional hole on each one that is supposed to be drilled and it lines up with metal, not plastic. You can still install them without the drilling, but the holes are there nonetheless. I'm waiting for my first tire rotation to do the rears.
I just checked the instructions that came with the mug guards and they do say you need to make a hole, yet when I installed both my front and rear there was already a small plastic black block to screw the screw for the hole that the instructions stipulate on my truck. I did not have to make one? Maybe the SXT trim has that already, I never looked at any other truck but mine. Can someone confirm this if they have an SXT and have installed mud flaps on there truck?
