Yep, almost as big as I wanted them, just not as floppy ...
The rears need to be longer. I started the install by lining up the precast holes in the flaps with the existing holes in the fenders...that made it easy.
On the front I added a zip tie to an extra hole i made in the fender liner ( toward the inside of the truck ), the front tire was rubbing the flap at full lock. It seem to do the trick.
On the rear, even with the 300lbs of sand in the bed, the rears are 4in. off the ground, where the front ones are only 2... and I can hear them ( with the findows down ) they drag the ground going around "clover leaf" on/off ramps !

Went to the beach yesterday and did some right turns and mine rub a tad still. I might be able to deal with it honestly.

There is a "high spot" on the back half of the front wheel wells, kinda the other side of the foot wells... when you ad a layer of anything, it wants to curl into the tire more, nothing a zip tie cant fix . ( only at full lock )

the only really great deal here is the color match, if I had blue I'd rock them

Life is all about ***, you're either covering it,hauling it,laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.

Still haven't gotten a chance to trim the front drivers side down yet so it still rubs especially in the parking garage at work

Update!
Took my truck through the local wildlife management area today. Drove around 20-25mph and kicked up a lot of rocks along the way. I heard a TON of stones hitting the flaps. A nice dampened "thunk" as apposed to the metal "tick" of the rocks hitting the paint.
I still heard some paint contact but not much. Couldn't find any of chips. Overall I'm satisfied with the Rally Armor flaps.
I need to wash the truck though and really focus on the area that was previously covered by the OEM flaps. There's some tar and gunk back there.

Another update!
I have trimmed mine a lot in the front and they still rub when I go up the parking garage at work. Thinking about stopping at Napa tomorrow and trying the big a$$ truck ones cut to fit. I really want to get another inch or inch and a half out of them front and rear.
Stinks cause I like the Rally Armour ones a lot but I can't have them look good if I cut them any further.
