Smile Picked up my Jeep last night! MUD FLAPS??

I picked up my new Jeep last night..........I'm in LOVE!!!
Got a 2011 2-door Wrangler Sport -- stick shift. So fun to drive!!

I live in NH on a messy dirt road and mud season is starting. I know the hardcore Jeep drivers out there love the mud, but I cannot stand it. Lots of crap being thrown up on the side of my Jeep (makes me crazy).

I must admit, I'm a little afraid to mention mudflaps on here but..........does anyone have them?????

Thanks,
Cristen

Mud flaps NO! I saw them in a Quadratec catalog and did a double take... wondering who buys mud flaps for a wrangler?! Well I guess I have an answer. If you look on Quadratec's site (Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories & Jeep Soft Tops From The Jeep Parts Experts - Quadratec) and do a search, you should be able to find them there.

Welcome to the Forum Cristen! All of our rock roads are limestone around here so i put on a pair of these. They are a little bit shorter than the Mopar ones and can easily be removed before doing any hardcore wheeling! We will be expecting pics of that new jeep of yours!

Mud flaps

My 2010 Jk came with Mopar mud flaps all around. Good for keeping mud off doors and rockers. Went off road in 15" snow with no damage to them. They do scrape the snowbanks on public roads when I move over for two way traffic. I also will be placing mud flaps in all the wheel wells to keep the mud out of the undercarriage and frame as much as possible. I've done this on other vehicles with excellent anti-corrosion results. In many New England areas it's not just mud to deal with. The road salt and abrasive sand is on all the roads for 4-5 months. This corrosive destroyer has to be kept out. Car washes help too.

I had to put a full set on my Ram pick up due to mud issues.

And my Sahara is benefiting very nicely from the stock running boards I had intended to remove....keeping both rock and mud off the sides.

Amazing how well they both work, and my prior stylistic notions moderate as the purpose is served so well.

Talking

Put the mopar on mine front and rear. Fit like a a glove and you hardly notice their there. Fronts can be put on by turning the wheels and using a right angle drill. Backs you will need to jack jeep up by frame, I just went under trailer hitch, and then a right angle drill you have clearance to mount without removing the wheels and tires. I have the factory chrome pipes on mine and they are not much good protection like the factory boards look to be. So I installed the fronts and they looked and fit so good I had to go ahead and order the rears. Great product. Now it's time to order some door stops to control the doors from swinging. Just annoys me a little sometimes. U know wat really burns my a$$? A flame about 3 feet high!

Congrats on the new JK!!

Do not worry about getting flamed for wanting mudflaps, it's your Jeep, do what you need to do...the Mopar side steps also keep a lot of crap off of your doors and keep the stones from dinging up the sides....

Pics......

If I had to pick mud flaps for my Jeep, I'd go with the Mopar ones. I think they look the best compared to the standard rubber flaps.

one thing I love about this community is that they won't bust your balls for something most jeepers would frown upon.

We have no choice down here - without at least rears you get fined just running to the corner store! (something rubbish about protecting the driver behind you)...

But after a couple of trips through the mud then having to clean it off afterwoods I am now thinking about some front rubber ones as well. As in flexible ones so they dont get torn off. The stock plastic rear ones are already bent from dropping over a lip last trip out so need some rubber ones for the rear too.

My climate’s similar to yours. This time of year is slop season; melting snow, wet gravel roads, mud farm lanes. Worst is gravel road spray which hardens to a type of concrete. I installed MOPAR’s front flaps-they work to keep the spray off the doors & rear fender. Who cares what someone else thinks?

I don't have anything on my front fenders... and am regretting it now. I got tar or?.. spackles somehow ALL over my painted fenders at the back.. looks like black rattle car overspray. Haven't been able to get it off yet. The way the running boards line up, it ricochets back up to the fender under normal driving conditions.

If you get some MethylEthylKetone (MEK) from a boat Paint supply store (1 GAL) and use some gloves and mask--and splash some on an old rag and it takes road tar/paint/blood/Plutonium contamination--Right-off-

Make sure the paint is clean and then apply wax after you're done

MEK is no more dangerous than paint remover-just be careful and have ventilation-I've used it for road tar removal on my Corvettes/jeep for over 20 years-no problemo !!

Making the adjustment from my Sahara to my Rubi has been easy, but the lack of side steps is wearing thin on my two young daughters and now I am getting tired of the mud roosters on my sides after going thru any mud at all.... I'm not willing to get mud flap on her yet, but time will tell... I'm trying to stay 'hardcore'

um, no.... I was trying to say IMHO mudflaps are on the civilized side of the Jeep spectrum .... running without mudflaps is more hardcore as they would possibly get in the way of serious Jeeping (hardcore)

Was thinking on that myself although I don't know what it'll look like. Got pics of yours? I think they're a good idea but want to see what they look like.

Thanks to you all for the suggestions.

I am thinking of ordering the Mopar tubular side steps (in black). Hopefully those will keep some of the crap of my new ride!

I have the side steps and I don't really think they protect the car that much. I guess they do help somewhat...but there is always a rooster tail that goes between the step if it is just a little bit of light mud. Heavy mud tends to get trapped in front of the side steps. Also, you are supposed to take them off before going off road which is kind of a PITA. If you like the side steps then go for it...but IMO I wouldn't expect them to keep the jeep clean.

Your thread actually got me thinking about some of the mopar mud flaps . My jeep is black and I like it to either be covered in mud, or fairly clean. Right now it is clean...but if I go through a puddle crap sprays up all over the front doors. I'm just not sure how they would fare off road.
