mud flaps yes or no?

I just noticed my truck is getting pelted by the elements (no wax yet either ) If you put mud flaps on, were they the molded kind from GM or another brand?

any pics of them on, trying to figure out what to do, I think that TSB is going to be a disaster.IMO

if you get it done, do it before you drive it off the lot, they were filling potholes and they did such a wonderful job that Plenty of tar and asphalt were pounding my truck...I'm just glad they did it in the rain, came off easier..

Do the molded ones fit correctly on the SS without all the cladding and side steps?

Also are you having dealers install the protective film?

Here are the only ones listed at GMPD

12497608 Splash Guards, Molded Black w/ Bowtie Logo, Front w/o Fender Flares (w/o lower accent two tone)

12497609 Splash Guards, Molded Black w/ Bowtie Logo, Rear (w/o RPO Code YC5, YC6 or B4U)

12497726 Splash Guards, Molded Black w/ Bowtie Logo, Front w/ Fender Flares (w/ lower accent two tone)

So I am questioning if the rears work at all...

fronts are all you need, wheels are at the edge already, when you turn the slightest bit, all the debris comes up and chips away , so just the fronts will be fine, just hope it's not too gaudy (is that a word?)..

I think it would look pretty tacky with only one set. Especially since they have the white bowtie on them...

if you plan on taking the mudflaps off durning the summer or ever taking them off I would not put the molded mudflaps on even if you use the 3m clear protective tape behind it. The molded flaps will take the paint off in a few months

I have big "ugly" but functional mudflaps on my TBSS with 0 nick and I can take them on and off.

I love the "ugly flaps"
