Paul, I totally agree with you and not lefaivre. As I stated in post # 8, if the bottom of the mud flap is ragged, it has been scraping the ground and doing more harm then good.
Here is my story of Innocent Pebble and his brother. Innocent pebble is sitting on the road when a 60 mph tire rolls over it. Innocent Pebble, just jiggles a little. However, innocent Pebble's brother, further down the road has the same large vehicle roll over it, but because of a dip in the road a little beyond, the vehicle's mud flap scrapes the ground and whacks the Innocent Pebble's brother at 60 mph. Well, Innocent Pebble's brother is now hopping all over the place and looking for a resting place on someone's toad.
Moral of the story: Your mud flap is not your friend if you get sand and gravel where your toad's wipers rest.
