    Goto your local hardware store. Get a roll of plastic lawn edging. Measure from the front bottom edge of wheel opening to the bottom of the mud flap. Cut pieces of edging to that length,
    Then use self tapping screws to attach it to the wheel well inner edge. It sticks out far enough to keep all the grime from spitting up onto the sides of your truck and windows as most of it is sticking out.( it is about 5 1/2 - 6 " wide)
    It doesn't look to bad, kinda like fender flares but a whole hell of alot cheaper. about $6 for the roll of edging and about $4 for a box of 1" self tappers with the Phillips heads. I will take a pic of mine to show you guys.
    I used to have my truck covered with salt/sand from the roads and couldn't see out at all. Now I rarely have to clean my windows anymore.:D

    LMAo @ the defrosters. That is wAY more redneck than mine. Mine at least look decent and pretty good/normal when installed.. And to answer the last posters ? the defrost never gets the little strip below the wipers in the middle.
