Default Mud Flaps

I didn't find any other topic on this. What is the law for Idaho on mudflaps? I know I have to have some, but what are the requirements. I hear can't be higher than 8-10" from the ground and must be the width of the tire. I have some on my new truck, but I don't think they look all that great so I was going to go and put the stock ones back on. The problem is that my truck is lifted so I don't think it would fall under the parameters above.

I just got stopped for this the other day. My solution is to put on smaller tires. What is that last part about the bumper?

I got pulled over yesterday and the cop said my tires stuck out to far and I needed flairs. He didn't say anything about flaps though.

I got pulled over in Mountain Home for it but those cops are assholes. Never had any problems anywhere else. I am thinking of getting some, if I find the right kind, to save the paint.

No they never say both...its always one or the other if u don't have both. In my dodge got told I needed flairs (had flaps running 33" toyo at)...chev needed flaps (had flairs running 35" toyo mt)...ford, never had one say I needed either and I'm running 37" bfg at ko's....I think its really depends on mood and suspicion.
