To keep...or remove...?

Just looking for opinions about keeping or removing the factory mud flaps. I notice a lot of Frontiers don't have them.

I personally removed mine and replaced them with Rally Armour Universal ones. Look a million times better imo. Plus there thinner and rubber-y instead of the hard plastic of the stock ones.

Apparently, my passenger front side decided to take itself off already. I haven't even been off road yet and only have 3500 miles on the truck.

It's not just a matter of what you think looks best though...

Mud flaps help protect the paint on the road but can be damaged (and possibly contribute to additional damage to the truck) on the trail.

Street use=mud flaps yes
Trail use=mud flaps no

Of course... but you're stating the obvious. Or what I assumed would be obvious.

Given the number of people I've wheeled with who showed up with mud flaps, I'd say it's not obvious.

im afraid to take my mud flaps off the truck. the amount of rock chips i have along my rocker and rear fender with them on is unacceptable imo. Id hate to see what it looks like after taking them off.
