I have to wonder if the mudflaps interfere with the aerodynamics of the car and reduce gas mileage?

It is possible, but frontal area of mudflaps is very small compared to total area of car. Also, they are behind wheels and the most of air resistance is on the tyre. I think that interfering of mudflaps is minor.

Thanks Dare4x4

So they're not that noticeable when looking at the car from a distance?

It's even easier and faster with a #2phillips bit and 1/4" drive ratchet!

Yes, that's right.

I may get a set of those. Should keep the water spray down on the side of the car.

Garage
@WallyjY: Affect fuel mileage? You wouldn't notice it if it did. Too many other variables in day-to-day driving. Besides, they beat getting stone/rock chips thrown up from the tires. Or crap from rain/snow on the highway. Good fuel economy begins at the steering wheel, not the drive wheels.

Besides, I think those mud/stone guards look sexy on wife's Tucson. At least in the morning, that is.

Sorry I didn't take pics for a proper DIY. Hyundai's instructions are fairly straight forward so I'll outline the install. This kit does require that you drill six holes using three different sized bits, (one pilot hole bit) so make sure you align the templates carefully. The center console cup holder, two forward side panels, (drivers and pass side near floorboard) need to be removed along with the USB/12v parcel tray.

Using templates, drill several holes. One for the on/off button, three for the driver's side LED and finally two for the pass side LED. Snap in the on/off button into the parcel tray then go on to install the LED's using the plastic "push style" clips. Lay the kit wiring harness in the open section where parcel tray goes and fish the corresponding wires to driver's and pass sides.

Connect the LED driver's side and carefully reinstall the panel. Do the same for the pass side. Finally, you'll need to find the white, AUX power receptacle, (the one that goes to your USB/12v parcel tray) to locate your power source wires. Hyundai uses two different receptacle sizes so determine if you're looking for a 12 pin or 16 pin receptacle. Using the supplied splice connectors, splice into the two wires for power and ground then connect the kit harness.

Reinstall everything in reverse being careful to route the harness so as not to interfere with the shifter. LED's operate with the headlights and can be dimmed using the panel dimmer or turned on or completely off using the on/off button.

NOTES: Disconnect your NEG battery cable before installation.
The instructions call for removing the leather, shifter boot panel but
don't, it comes off with the cup holder panel. Pull up cup holder panel
starting with edge under arm rest.

Feel free if you have any questions, enjoy.
Hey Tony, I was hoping you could take some pictures of how it looks like and where you tapped the wires. I ordered the same, just hoping i could copy your install. Thanks

i removed them and don't see any issues with gas milage for 1.5 year, it is still the same!

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!
