Installed a set of Rally Armor UR (grey) mud flaps. Here's some installation tips for those interested:
  • Approx. 1.5 hour installation. (30min for the first side, 15min for the other side) x 2. Note: the rear mud flaps will take longer to install on a 5dr because you have to remove an additional inner liner (as recommended in the instructions).
  • Useful tools (but not necessary): body clip removal pliers, trim pry tools, Phillips off-set screwdriver (I didn't have one so I used vise grip pliers and a short bit. There wasn't enough room to use a ratchet).
  • To removal the clips that have a Phillips head, hold the outer portion while you're unscrewing it. It's only approx. 1/4 turn to remove it.
  • To reinstall the clips, separate them into 2 pieces and insert the outer portion of the clip first and make sure the body sections are secured. Finally, insert the inner portion of the clip.
  • If you're not removing your wheels, install the hardware for the inner most portion of mud flap before you install it on the vehicle, but leave a little slack for adjustments. There's very little space to fit your tool to tighten it in the wheel well.

And of course, here are some pictures:
