What steps/rails with front mud flaps?

I have the hard plastic mud flaps on my front fenders. Most of the side steps I've seen here seem to fit up under the fender far forward enough to where I'd have to remove the flaps. I'd like to keep them. Is anybody running these flaps together with some sort of side step/rails? Please post pics with details if possible.

Ace rock sliders. Protect the rocker panels and also serve as a step. They fit fine with the plastic splash guards.

Thanks for the pics. Looks nice. But what I really wanted to see was the steps/rails together with the front splash guards installed.

Now we're talkin! Thanks a lot. Exactly what I was looking for.

Anybody else running something that works with the splash guards?

The wife's JKU has Smittybilt steps with mudflaps. There's about the same amount of room as the above pics.

^^^^ Thank you so much for those pics. I'm about to order some front splash guards for mine. I'm tired of road salt and mud being thrown all over my side windows.

bad news I am running the same mud flaps with Ace sliders and still get mud on the side windows. I am running smallish 265/75-16 tires on rims with 4.5 backspacing. Judging from your avatar pic your tires stick out even further then mine.

Yeah my tires stick out really far. I know that's a lot of the problem. It's the one thing I don't like about "the combo".

Husky makes some almost just like these that sell for less $$$. Maybe I'll try those instead and I won't feel as bad if they don't keep the salt off my glass.
