If you would slow down over the speed bumps maybe your mudflaps would stay on. LOL

The Tera Flex removables are not the most attractive but they look like they will serve their purpose. The Mopar fronts seem to keep ice and road grime off the front handles.

The Mopar fronts do a good job of keeping snow/ice/etc off the door handles.

IMO the rears look fine.

Sometimes I wish everything was functional yet easy to remove or install with just a pin.

Agreed. Like a winch mounted in a hitch receiver tray?!

Nice!

I really like the idea of being able to pull the pins and take the flaps off.
I think the rears look fine with the Mopar fronts.

Glad I stumbled on this. I will be ordering my Mopar splash guards soon. Imagine the door handle caked with grime and road slush. I don't like grabbing that when I am dressed for work. Also call some of us wimpy but the amount of mud I have seen slung down the side of my Jeep each time I go to the mountains will go straight into the interior when the doors are off. I don't want to do that much cleaning if I can help it. Kind of like letting my muddy dog shake off in my family room. If there is an opportunity to stop it, I will. I don't mind washing my Jeep. Just want to make life easier.

Without splash guards... Right on the handle...

Removable mud flaps for the rear coming in tomorrow... though it's 100 and dry right now, monsoon season is only a couple of months away.

With doors off and safari straps in the back, I found it interesting that in a down pour, water would be hitting my rearview mirror -- and me in the back of the head!

I am hopeful I can prevent that, and then pull them off for wheeling when I pull over to unhook my quick disconnects.

Beside, it was only $15 used on Amazon.

Pics soon.

Not sure if this was mentioned but mud flaps serve another purpose; preventing (hopefully anyway) slinging a rock into somebody's windshield that might be behind you. I think of this when I look in the rearview right after hitting pavement and see the long mud/debris line and oh, when a rock lets go and hits the wheel well. I like the look of the Tera Flex removeables but if they are that easy to remove then they are that easy to steal...

Who the hell steals mud flaps? I've never heard of that happening.

Don't count since you didn't take any, but nice scenery none the less.

I had some stolen (not that brand though) off an F250 in rural Missouri a few years back. It happens. At $112 a set, that would get old real quick. I just noticed your location so I figure you might ask... They were stolen in either Cuba or Steelville Missouri. I don't live there anymore

My wife like many others does no off roading at all. She has the Mopar mudflaps installed on her Altitude. It's also lowered 2"

She has driven over a few curbs in the Mall parking lot and they have not touch the ground once.

Quick ? Just picked up some Mopar front mud guards. Looking at the instructions and the size of my drill with a bit on the end, do I need to remove the wheels to do the install? It sure looks like it. Any suggestions?

No you don't need to remove them, in fact I left mine on and make them quick disconnects instead. Very easy to do if you are interested I can let you know.

The fronts should go on without having to remove the tires as you can turn the wheels to gain access. The rears, depending on the size of your tires and the drill you have, you may need to take off the tires.

I would be very interested by a quick disconnect. Feel free to PM me. I got the pkg last night and was just eyeballing the space between the stock tires and the fender flare and thought there's no way to fit the drill in there. It was late and I didn't think about turning the wheels out. Just more of a "oh man I have to take the wheels off", thought.

Hmmm, I'm new to the Jeep thing and I found this thread doing some research for my new Jeep. Around here, we have a ton of gravel roads and two tracks all over the state and I want to explore them. I imagine it's that way for Jeeps everywhere.

So how much does the gravel actually fling up and chip the paint on a 2 door Wrangler? Is it pretty bad? I have a Rubicon so it has the bigger mud tires too.

I installed a set of Husky front & rear about a month so.
Since taking off my Sahara running boards, the sides of my Jeep get incredibly dirty, especially the fronts of the rear fenders.

These are doing the trick so far, and were very easy to install:



I had similar on my Ram pick up for 7 years & they served well.

It'll decrease wear and tear from stones and rocks flying up, but not eliminate it. Basically, it's a good idea and the earlier the better.
