Ya i put the mopar ones on about a month ago, fit great & are realy easy to install about 10min. keeps the snow and slush from spraying up the hole side of the jeep but dosen't stop the snow and ice from building up on the front of my rear fenders, they still get packed. I got 285/70/17 duratracks with 4.5 back spacing rims so they stick out from the fenders a bit witch probably makes a diffrence. If you are running stock it should be even better. I found these a must have up here in Alberta with all the snow and slush and sandy roads. I only put the front ones on though because i could give a rats ass about the guy driving behind me lol.

Got the front and rears on mine. Lots of rocks on the roads in winter. Fronts keep the salt, slush and rocks off the side of the jeep. Rears don't really do much. Still gets pretty messy back there.

I have those huskys, they work great, look great. I just keep going wheeling and taking them off, have yet to put them back on. I also only used 3 screws per side instead of the 8 or whatever they want you to use. I feel like a few of the screw locations go right into the rocker panel, so i just did 2 along the fender edge, and one in the middle of the fender to secure it.

not to hard to take out or put in, but for what i use it for, almost wish I had done the teraflex. not because of the quality or look or anything, its just getting too damn cold to have to keep playing with a screw driver down there!

Just got mine today. They are the Mopar ones. I'll be putting them on in the morning I think.

Here's a link to the installation... http://site.justforjeeps.com/guide/82210233.pdf

I just pulled my Mopar mud flaps off my new 2012 Sahara today, as they came with it as a dealer installed accessory. I think they look hideous, altho they will provide protection from the rocks and slush as noted. They looked like something that was going to get ripped off wheeling anyway. They on ebay if anyone wants them.

yeah.. I'm not putting mine on for looks. I do think they look pretty good in NVKID's pic though. I don't want running boards, but I want something to keep the salt and slush off the body for the Canadian winter. So these fit the bill.

Not sure why everyone hates these! They don't look bad and up here in Calgary they help to keep rocks and dirt off the sides in winter!

Here is a pic with mine on.

If your tires stuck out beyond your wheel wells... and were more blocky... those mopar flaps wouldn't stop the slush. Nor are they *removable*. Of course, you can remove them, but they aren't made to be taken off/on repeatedly as needed. And off road... they could surely be a cause of grief if you find yourself in a position of backing up against an obstacle... you'll remove them - by ripping them off inadvertently - I've seen it happen.

And I think some folks *hate* just because others do, and they think it's cool to jump on the bandwagon... makes 'em feel mighty powerful...

Meanwhile, if these do the job for you... then good on ya

Hey Kaisoboy!!! I'm just 2 hours south of you in Taber, Alberta. I was putting my guards on this morning till the in-laws showed up. And i gotta leave for work in a little bit, so I guess it will have to be tomorrow.

people hate on them because for offroading they suck, and jeeps are clearly only for offroading, and you never ever drive a jeep on the road

right?

You can't buy these, but because the plate is in the direct channel/flow of debris from the front tires, they stop 99% of snow/mud/gravel-etc

If you have sliders/tubular mopar steps, you can fabricate these plates from color/clear/black plastic and attach them to the bottom of the trailing edge of the front bumpers--



Here's apic after driving 11 miles in snow and you can see the snow buildup on the forward part of the rear fender, but nothing is lodged on either side of the jeep--



They're pretty much invisable and you won't notice them, but they do the same, although a little less job of a mud flap and don't even hangdown !!

I probably shouldn't even showem, cause I don't do writeups, but these are free and don't draw anybodys attention--GOOD or BAD !

Splash guards on a Jeep sounds like it should be a crime

Hey Lane24, how's it down in Taber!

I realize that these are not for everyone. If you are into off roading that's great and yes they would probably be ripped off while doing so but not everyone has bought their jeep for extreme off roading. I bought mine because I needed something more practical than my sports car for winter and work. Occasionally I need to go down service roads to well sites and the such and if you work in the patch here in Alberta you know what I'm talking about and I would rather not have mud everywhere.

So if you don't like them that is fine, then don't put them on your jeep! If you are a true enthusiast you would appreciate what others gave done to there rides and not be hating on them for something YOU don't like!

We're all jeepers under the sun. Ive always wanted one and now i have one. I'm looking forward to taking the top off and just enjoying my ride!

Cheers

Mud all over the sides define a Jeep (for me any ways) and they stop the mud from reaching the roof

Don't buy the Huskey's if you have Rubicon rock rails. They will not clear the rails as they are made wider then the Mopar ones [per Husky's recommendation].

I've got a set of the Husky mudflaps but I haven't fitted them yet.

I bought them after seeing how well they worked on a couple of other JKs on a trip. I still have the standard side steps and they tend to stop a lot of mud thrown up by the front wheels but the mudflaps will be essential when I replace the steps with sliders.

Put my Mopar ones on today. Took about 10 minutes a side. Very easy. I originally thought it was gonna be something I would take off after the winter by using different attachments other than the pop in fasteners, but now that I see them, they look like they belong on there and will stay. Any extreme mudding I do is in my big Expedition, so I don't have to worry about these getting torn off. My wife saw one side done, and said the other side looked naked without them. lol.




It will be nice not having a two tone half white/ half mud JK now. I'll have to go wash her up tomorrow if it's above freezing.

Do you have to remove the tires to install the guards?

Nope. Just turn them . It takes 3 screws and 3 pop in fasteners. You use 2 of the existing holes already on your Jeep fender. Like I said it took me less than ten minutes after I got the tools together. ( Wire cutter, screwdriver, drill, and a sheet of plywood to sit on cuz I didn't want to get my good Sunday Jeans dirty.lol.)
The wire cutter is just to cut off the backs of the existing fasteners that are on your fenders already.

I take back what I said earlier. The more I think about it the more practical I realize it is to have splash guards especially in the winter

Get the Mopar brand. Very useful on unpaved roads!
