I agree...These splash guards are one of the first things I added beside PPF applied to the front bumper area...I have absolutely no road rash or pitting of paint behind the wheels as a result...Also nice to not have mud splash ups....They are also a must have if your going to add wheel spacers to widen your stance...And I don't find them at all distracting from the appearance and hardly notice them at all!Yes, it needs them. My quarter panels are ppf'd, I've got a bunch of Knicks in it already from rocks at the bottom. They are very minimal but look effective. Def does not spoil the look imo. They look like they were supposed to be there if that makes sense. 50 bucks very well spent.
