Mud Flaps for front fender right behind bumper?

I dont know if there is such a thing or if i am going to have to "jimmy" something up, but im sure all of you JK owners notice that dirt and water splash up on the front corners of the bumper and leave dirt marks(especially looks bad right after you wash it or go through a little puddle).

Is there anything made for jeep to prevent this?

i know a jeep isnt suppose to be clean allll the time lol, but the two corners on the front bumper look horrible even when one hasnt been in the mud

I have not seen any Front Flaps, but I know how the crud sprays the bumper. I would be a little reluctant to put anything there as it would look a little strange.

mud flaps don't belong on a jeep. BUT...I'll tell you a little secret...

Mopar makes front and rear mudflaps for wranglers that rivet onto the inner fender.

when I bought my jeep...it had them on it I destroyed them taking them off before the ink dried on my papers or I'd GIVE them to you

talk to the dealership. they got em' I promise

I feel like I just helped someone put spinning rims on a jeep. I'm going to go shower and wash off this dirty feeling I just got

Or you could just let it get dirty and clean it.

I think the OP wants something like the Wranglers in Europe have, the plastic between the bumper and front flare.....

I don't want rain on your parade but the Euro bumpers look great from the front but completely suck from the side.

We always joke that the JK's come with a built in picnic table. The front bumper must extend about 6" further forward than the US bumpers.

Thank goodness for aftermarket bumpers.

I vote for stubby bumpers. If you try to bridge the gap between the fender and the bumper it might look a little... um... dumb.

I know on my 90' YJ there are little plastic extensions on my bumper that i might just take off since they are plastic and as you mentioned... get dirty.

i do agree that it will look silly bridging that gap but it also looks silly driving with a freshly cleaned jeep and having "racing stripes" of dirt on the top of my bumper and im not really up for cutting the sides off it yet either...... what to do....
