I just noticed my truck is getting pelted by the elements (no wax yet either:duh: ) If you put mud flaps on, were they the molded kind from GM or another brand?

any pics of them on, trying to figure out what to do, I think that TSB is going to be a disaster.IMO

Do the molded and the plastic film.It won't look bad at all.That's what I'm going to do the day I get mine.

if you get it done, do it before you drive it off the lot, they were filling potholes and they did such a wonderful job that Plenty of tar and asphalt were pounding my truck...I'm just glad they did it in the rain, came off easier..

Do the molded ones fit correctly on the SS without all the cladding and side steps?

Also are you having dealers install the protective film?

fronts are all you need, wheels are at the edge already, when you turn the slightest bit, all the debris comes up and chips away:hissy: , so just the fronts will be fine, just hope it's not too gaudy (is that a word?)..

I think it would look pretty tacky with only one set. Especially since they have the white bowtie on them...

if you plan on taking the mudflaps off durning the summer or ever taking them off I would not put the molded mudflaps on even if you use the 3m clear protective tape behind it. The molded flaps will take the paint off in a few months:duh:

I have big "ugly" but functional mudflaps on my TBSS with 0 nick :thumbsup: and I can take them on and off.

I love the "ugly flaps"

My friendly Pontiac dealer found three sets of front mudflaps for my TB after entering my VIN in his computer:

Black w/Bowtie
Black w/Chevrolet
Black

I don't have part numbers.

So I ordered the plain black ones. The parts guy was cool and let me order a set of plain black rear ones just to see if they fit and he'd let me return them no questions asked if the fit was a no go.

I'm swapping out my rockers to the textured unpainted black ones so I think the front mud flaps will blend in well. I've actually been scoping out cars with mudflaps and lots of vehicles have front only mudflaps and they don't look bad IMO.

And I'm going to fill in the nicks and scuffs on the painted rockers and send them out to get the 3M paint protectors custom cut cause I've yet to find pieces that fit the rockers.

my Pontiac dealer says a "no go" for the moldeds!!! I went to Pep Boys & Strauss auto, didn't like their molded ones...IDON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS!!!Chevy is KILLIN ME!!!Waxed it today, Cleaner then a Glaze (Meguiars) it is bad down there on both sides, those of you who don't think it's a problem aren't looking at the right ANGLE! get close and in some spots it looks like paint spatter, but it's paint missing, clearcoat mostly..

Maybe a set of black flats?

Did they say they didn't fit? I'm a bit surprised since three sets popped up on the computer when I was looking at the dealership. I'll let you know how/if they fit when they come in.

Careful on ordering those!!

Have your parts person VERIFY that the rears fit. The parts computer showed that a part fit our trucks...then when I picked them up and tried them out...guess what...you got it...they are for the standard TB bumper...not ours. My parts guy called into GM parts line and gee...it has a recorded message there to warn you they won't fit an SS and that the SS part is in R&D...why not put that in the description you idiots?!

Thought I'd chime in...the fronts are standard TB deflectors...so no trouble there. If you do find a part that fits the rear...let me know please!
