Can't see the pix at work, but I busted one of mine the first rock I drove over on the first trip off roading, lol. Took them all off right then and there.

Ah oh! Don't take them off unless you have a replacement on hand. I will post pics of the flaps I got for $17. If you take the flaps off completely and not replace the front ones with anything, the kiss the paint on your rocker panels good bye. After getting numerous chips, I suggest that anybody who takes the flaps off replaces them with the aftermarket solution that flexes. Flexible flaps are very useful :)

I'm thinking about leaving the front ones on and putting some kind of flexible ones in back. I don't rock crawl, but I do drive places where I don't want to worry about ripping the hard plastic ones off on a snowbank. Where can I get a set of soft ones that fit the back?

Any Autozone store. I would replace the back and the front. My car is black and I found a set of nice flaps for really cheap. Flexible flaps look better in my opinion... You simply screw them into the plastic housing that is already there and then make some minor adjustments, if necessary, with scissors :)
