They look great!  :thumbsup:
Curious to know how the paint holds up.
I was wanting to spray the bowties white when mine come in.

Very nice.  I just purchased some flat mud flaps that have an etched design of mountains.  When I get time, I'll work on putting some body color paint in the etching so that it stands out.  The fun part will be installing them.  I guess I will have to take the wheels off to mount them.

Only the rears. Fronts can be put on just with turning the front wheels.

I did not take any rubber off to put these on, stubby screwdriver and short socket!  I kinda cringed though when it came time to drill the hole for the rear flap, two screws in the front go into the running board, one got in till tires come off, but hey its a running board, that did not bother me at all, lol.

Sweet! Thanks for the info.  That should save lots of time at least not having to pull the front wheels.  I will see if Didit's idea with stubby will work.  If I have to drill holes, I'll look to see if it is possible to drill from behind the wheel well.  I do not have the molded mud flaps so I will take extra time to make sure they are lined up correctly before putting the screws to it.  Pics to come when I get to working on this.

Ya when I installed the LEDs looking at the sockets they should be replaced. On the to-do list.

Side mount battery post. I'm too cheap to trade in perfectly good batteries (3 avys and 4 batteries)  to get dual post batteries so I changed out the "post" that goes through the cable into the battery. The new ones are a little longer and have bolt in the end of them for adding wiring directly to the battery.
