I had a sport with no flaps that I threw some cheapies on front. I ordered a 10a and had the dealer install factory flaps. The factory look much better and work great. I also live on gravel so these help me a lot. I watched the factory flaps get folded flat in moab and come right back to shape.

Sorry about the pic, it's the only one I have of the rear that will show the flaps (that's my bride when I drove her up to the mountain for the day). About a month before this photo was taken, my brides sister was injured, so Julie decided to go visit her and help out around the house for a few days. The drive over was along the gorge from Portland to eastern Washington, which when the ice comes in winter, they use sand on the roads. Our Jeep had about 1500 miles on it at the time and the thought of "Sandblasting" the lower rockers made me ill. I bought these from my local dealer for I believe $45-48 per pair, the install was easy, they are very well mounted, and do exactly what I want them to do. I've actually really grown to like them even in the summer, so they will stay, possibly forever, or maybe get replaced by rocker guards of some sort, not really sure.

I know I've seen comments on here where many don't like the flaps. I personally want them and all probably buy them. Main reason is, when I switch from running boards I have (sit way high next to body) and get power steps, I think jeep looks likes its missing something. Hoping flaps fix this for me.

I have a 4 door, but 2 door looks same with steps when they are up. Also hoping for some function here as I do a lot of sand driving and don't want to ruin powersteps.

I'm happy with mine. The spray from the front tires starts in that bottom corner and then spreads real wide across the entire door and covers the door handles. The flaps completely stopped it. I live on a dirt/gravel road but use it as a DD and am not always dressed casually to roll with the mud. No flaps in the back though.

I'm running the MOPAR mud flaps. They blend right in and you don't even notice them if you aren't looking for them. They do an excellent job of reducing the side spatter on the Jeep. The rear ones help keep my trailers clean.

I've got the Mopar splash guards up front to help keep the doors clean in between off-road trips and/or washes. They come off very easy for when I go off-roading.

only true Red Necks around here have mud flaps usually homade there jeeps are beat to pieces and a few have stacks coming out of the back beside the roll bar and most have a PVC snorkel with a k& n filter stuck on it.

I've got the Mopar guards and love em.....As stated above, they are much more sturdy than you think. I've put mine through some tough wheeling and they hang tough. Also, they will pop back into shape if bent back, I've bent mine a time or two.

I put the mopar ones on the front because I have no running boards, and my JK always looked like this on the side...lol... Muddy muddy muddyy.
The mud guards really helped the side stay moderatley clean now. Don't have em on the back cuz I don't care if the people behind me get muddy.

It was me bro, and I had no idea you were interested in buying them. Your post was

"Anyone run mud flaps/guards?
Buy them? Make them? Pics?"

I just sent him a PM to ask how much. My intent was not to snipe them from you. I would be happy to concede if you wish to buy them from him. He has not gotten back to me with a total with shipping as of yet so I have not sent any money. Just say the word and they are yours. If not I will take them.

My apologies,

Ron

hey gents- I'm partly to blame here- I received a PM from Lewd shortly after I made my post above, and naturally assumed it was the Original Poster shooting me the PM without going back to cross-reference the PM sender vs the post.

I'm game for whatever, will keep everything the same, I only feel bad that there was a mis-communication!

There is no blame here, everyone is on the up and up. It would be different if he posted "anyone have flaps for sale?" or If I was pretending to be him or something. If he has made other arrangements I am still game. Just need the shipping total and I will square up as discussed.

I run them because I have to. In Utah flaps are a state law and you have to have them for inspection when running oversize tires.
