OK, this took me about four hours in the 112 degree heat but I LOVE the results. These are Ram logo mudflaps from the local auto parts store. I bought both sizes. Trimmed them up a bit. Secured them under the existing screws and added two screws (w/ plastic anchors) to the rear flaps. I had to get flaps because I park in gravel which has been marring my paint. They look pretty wicked in person.

Those look sharp. Where did you get them?
Thx!!
The store out here is called "Checker Auto parts". It's a chain and they use a different name in other states. The flaps are 'Plasti-Color' brand and they come in two sizes. The small were on sale for $15 and the large were $25. It took quite a bit of finessing to get them to sit just right as they weren't made for a Cali and the rear bumper is very flimsy and not supported well.

Highly doubtful but I bet that you can get some silver paint (something flexible like vinyl), and just give the ol' RAM logo a few brushstrokes. The logo is raised so it should be easy.

Those look cool and a lot better than the OEM rear mud flap. Going to have to see if I can something similar.

Thx for the compliments guys! It's been several days now and they're holding up perfectly. I was concerned that I would have to drill extra holes but they're just fine w/o. I only added a couple holes in the black plastic thing that hangs behind the rear tires. If anyone decides to do this and needs pics, lemme know and I'll post some detail pics on how I did it.

Seeing it in person, it's one of those mods that really gives it a badass look w/o jumping out and looking cheesy. Combined w/ the bug-shield it looks more like a sports car than a hatch-back.
