    On one of my old D44s one side had one and the other sides was missing. Went to tear into to fix a bunch of stuff and there was mud packed in everywhere on the side with the shield on and the other side was alot cleaner. I have ditched them everytime since then.

    Mine has them right now, but they are the one piece backing plates. I will be putting on a pair later this summer that don't have them. Too easy to get mud packed in them or rocks stuck in there. I did remove them from my XJ last year too. :D

    Yank em! I had one make an annoying click/tap sound for a long time. Pissed me off enough to pull them off. Cleaning has never been easier.

    probably, but not all just slip on or off that easily.
