What nuts are you referring to? Mine came with body clips, not nuts. These clip in place so you don't have to hold them when you try to get the bolt or screw in. Although I did have to bend the clips a bit to ensure they clamped on, they were too loose at first. Maybe this helps:

I was using the term nuts loosely - they are the body clips. I will try to compress them with pliers, thanks for the tip.

I think it is a doable DIY for anyone who used a screwdriver before. I have worked on cars before, but I am by no means a professional mechanic.

Although looks are personal, I have to say the splash guards look better in person then I thought they would. I was worried they won't flow with the rest of the car, but they blend in nicely. (Car is maximum steel) I'd almost say they look quite cool. But then again, I got them for functionality so looks are secondary anyway.
Mine is max steel as well. Do you have an overland? If so could you post some pics? The only thing holding me back is wondering how it will look with the painted overland fenders.

You can try to compress body clips with pliers but I don't think you'll get away trying to compress someone's nuts. Totally different.

Nope, just a limited here, so looks pretty much like the pics on page one. Except I have the 18" rims.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

2 on and 2 to go!

Got the front ones on last night. Only difficult part was the clips. I compressed them, which did help for sure, but during the install of my last one, one of the clips fell out, so I got a 5/16 bolt and shoved it in there haha. Not black, but hey, it worked!

Going to do the other 2 tonight. They look great so far! I found 2 paint chips in the doors, so hopefully the mud flaps will prevent more.

I've heard both ways now, do you have to take off the back wheels to put on the rear mud flaps? I know it makes it easier, but is it worth the trouble?

Yes it makes it easier to take of the back wheels for the rear mud flaps but it's not necessary. I just used a short screwdriver and angled drill without taking the wheels off, which both seemed to get the job done.

Theres a rubber based underseal spray paint that sticks pretty good and could probably turn the non-black bolt black quickly.

You'll end up with two extra push/clamp nut things left over (at least I did anyway), one spot in the back that had a plastic rivet on the 13's has a bolt or reusable fastener on the 14's. You should be able to use that on the front where you lost one...

I actually liked the look of the bolt, so I changed them all out with 5/16 bolts. I really like it! I think it makes it look a little tougher ha. I'm on the fence about painting them black - they are zinc bolts, which are really shiny, but that does wear off. If I had just done bolts to begin with, it would have made these a breeze! No putting clips behind the holes or anything, just let the thread of the bolt do all the work
