Mud Flaps On - snap shots included

For those that wanted to see the TeraFlex removable mud flaps... here they are. I realize they are a specialty kind of thing... not for most folks. Needed for my use. So there ya go

Crummy pics... it's colder than a witches body part out this afternoon... but you get the idea. My jeep took me to town today... got him all washed up, back up the mountain (no slush - hasn't been snowing much) However, once I turn off the highway, it's all snowpacked roads up to my cabin... and the sides stayed clean... time will tell when the conditions get tougher as to how well they work on the slushy salted paved roads. They (TeraFlex Plus) installed them front and rear. They remove by pulling the pin inside the wheel well.

Carolyn, they look like they are doing their job keeping stuff from spraying back. Do you have to remove all four attach points, and what says on the vehicle when you pull the flaps?

There's only 1 attachment on each flap. The bar sits free, other than where it attaches to the T-thing they welded (can also be bolted) on to the frame deep in the wheel well.

Sorry, I don't understand your 2nd question... what says on the vehicle when you pull the flaps?

The bar comes off, the flaps are attached to the bar. The bar has one attachment point to the frame. Hope that helps explain?

Not that much, LOL, but I did a search and understand it now. Pull one pin and the whole bar, bolts and flap come off.

They look ugly as sin, but should stop anything coming back and a lot of spray, salt, road grime etc from the side of the jeep.

It's a funny thing how so many folks are anti-flaps. They serve a purpose. I wouldn't want ones that did not detach however... but I can see using these on gravel roads/rocky roads... etc... as long as I'm not wanting to back up over technical stuff. But hey - I'm an overlander - not a rock crawler... I use my jeep for work and play... you know - different strokes for different folks and all that stuff. I can take them off all summer/fall if I want... heck, I can pull 4 pins, and have them off if the trail warrants... just slide them into my Trasharoo Bag that hangs on my rear tire... or slide them under the mat inside...

As Richard Feynman would say - and I tend to live by - What do you care what other people think

It's all good

The bar/bolts/flap are not attached.... except at one point where the pin is.... the stiffness of the bar holds it in place. And yeah.... not exactly purty... but that's OK.

I'm surprised at how clean the undercarriage stayed too.

Never liked the hard plastic ones, but those look a lot better. Good choice! Looks good and would seem to be very functional IMO

Why wouldn't you wan more mud flying up on to the sides. Looks sexier the more mud there is.

I bought them and had the installed at TeraFlex Plus in Sandy, Utah. They are made by TeraFlex, and you can find them online here. There is no front and rear. Just one size.

I don't think I'd want them on in the mud (not that I'd go there intentionally) - because I might have to back up...

But for the road salt/slush I'm thinking they are going to be helpful. I wouldn't care so much if I lived in the valley, and could just wash it off... but I don't, and I can't... My last jeep (dark blue) would turn glistening white for weeks at a time... and it rusted out. I'm on a mission with this new jeep. I want to beat the rust long enough to need a new engine. At which time, if I've managed to keep the rust at bay... I'll put a hemi in

I realize the odds are 'agin me... but time will tell... and these will help.

I see nothing wrong with flaps either.. The ones you have look very capable. I ordered some of the ridged Mopar ones for all the slush and muck we get up here in Canada too. Not the biggest fan of them, but I didn't want the running boards on my Jeep. (Seems a little silly to have side steps on a vehicle that's so little. My Lifted Expedition has them, but that makes sense cuz it's almost 8 feet tall.) So the alternative was to put some flaps on for the winter. The only problem was that they sent the rear ones instead of the front ones, so back they went, and the front ones should be here in the morning.

I was looking at these mud flaps a few weeks ago.

They really seem like the best of both worlds, being removable and all.
Yep, I say good on ya for using 'em too.

i like the idea of the teraflex ones, and i wish i had seen these pictures before I ordered some husky molded ones instead. these look great and probably remove much easier. I only use 3 screws for my huskys, but its still a pain in the ass to get in there with a screw driver to put them back on or take them off each time.

however, those teraflex flaps seems huge! can you feel it at all while driving? any weird feedback on the highway? They look great, i'm pretty jealous

FWIW, I too like them. I don't do the 'rock-crawl', I do the fire roads and DD with the crap they throw on the roads here they would make sense. They look great.

Your JKU is really sharp. Nicely done.

I want mudlaps to keep salty crud off my ride, but mine isn't lifted enough I think to accomodate these megaflaps. I likr them, though... I like function. The first time I took my JK out in the back acreage for some running, I was less than pleased at the soray up the sides. Jeeps aren't the most corrosion resistant of critters, and forced spray up each door is beat.

After letting the thought process kick in, I'm liking them. I live at 7400', and my drive up the road to Taos Ski Valley results in caked-on red mush (they use a sand material instead of salt) that just drops off on the floor of my heated garage when I get home. Your comment on keeping crud off the under carriage is interesting. There sure are lots of nooks and crannies that get packed with slush. Then there's the top of the front fender were crud tends to pile up.

The "easy off" feature is perfect, as I often look for areas to explore when I'm out, and never know when I may hit an area where mud flaps would be a problem.

Thanks for posting. Way more useful than the other million posts about "How high a lift can I put on my black JKU if I still want to use the EasyPass lane on the Garden State???".

I should look for those posts; I had no problem with the MA easy pass after doing my lift, but the ones in NH refused to read the transponder so I had to lower it (the transponder, not the jeep). I didn't realize it was a common problem!

oversized mud guards

I am considering the Aries mud guards. Does anyone know how they compare to the Teraflex mud guards? With a 3.25 suspension lift and 35x12.5x17" tires which size mud guards should I get for my 2012 Rubi? thanks for your advice.

Do you know if they require drilling?

Well, the product as listed on Teraflex 004808401 - TeraFlex Removable Mud Flaps for Jeep® Vehicles - Quadratec does say "drilling required" and lists it as a "level 3" (out of 4) install task.

Anybody know what the "required" drilling entails? Is it just drilling through the frame member to secure the bracket that the pin slides into? And, is it 4 holes per bracket?
