Question Mud Flaps that work with rubicon rock rails?

These are the low profile standard Rubicon rock rails.

Any mud flaps that work with these rock rails?

Mopar. Very nice and easy to remove at trailhead before wheeling if that applies to you.

I have these. I thought they were stupid on a jeep until I saw 8" of snow covering the rear fenders of other people's jeeps. They work good.

Do you have a link to these?

I went to two different Jeep dealers today (I happened to pass on my way around town) and they said nothing would fit with the rock rails...

Cool I meant a link to Amazon or something

I meant a link to them on Amazon or something

But nice to see them in their glory!

Looks like you have rock rails there too, so looking like the right stuff!

So I'm thinking you mean these?

That trail looks like you were setting up to leave some paint behind. Nicely done!

Has anybody used the AEV splash guards vs the Mopar ones? I usually just go with the mopar ones but liked the smaller profile of the AEV. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Did you post a video? It looks much different in the passenger seat. There have been times my wife was pretty much looking straight down a ledge like that!

you need the AEV bumper to use the AEV splash guards and they are about 3x the price of mopars.

Lightbulb Mopar don't prevent build up on rear fender, but they help.

Today was my first snowstorm in CT since installing the MOPAR mud flaps. Perfect fit with my Rubicon rock rails. Odd that 3 local dealerships couldn't confirm they'd work, in fact they told me they would not or one said they needed to be cut...

Anyway, yea perfect fit. They help a lot, cutting down like 90 percent of the build up, but I still get build up on my rear fenders. Probably because I have 18" rims on my Polar Edition.

Nah... the mud flaps just move the crapstream slightly lower. I have the factory 17" with the factory (Goodyear Wrangler) tires on 'em. I put the mud flaps on last Saturday before it snowed here in St. Louis - first time out, I parked and looked to see the fine job they'd do keeping crap off of the doors. There was about 3" of delicious road grimy snow piled onto the rear fender instead.

Yeah, good to know. They still beat a blank. Before the flaps the snow piled up on the rear fender until it reached the doors on my JK pretty quick. This time out I got a light coat on the fender, they're helping, but I figure I'll have a sand blasted rear fender before too many miles.

I have painted fenders, maybe I should get some sort of plastic overlay to protect them?

You could probably throw some of that generic matte vinyl or something on em, but as far as a cover... eh. At that point you may as well have the black plastic ones.

There's definitely an argument for non painted fenders, but I'm a road warrior. I was thinking clear plastic.

Husky mud flaps work pretty good & aren't intrusive.

They work with the rubi rockrail, as that is what I have on mine.
