Mud flaps

i have noticed that after getting bigger tires and rims that they stick out about an inch. this is now causing dirt and water to splatter all of the side. i know that you are thinking that "it's a jeep, it should get dirty" and i agree. however, my jeep is white and it will eventually cause more problems. any links to muds flaps that will fit an 05 wrangler? I have seen rubber ones that are made by jeep i think. I really do not want plastic ones.

They will kindly be removed for you without owner consent by the next decent trail you go on. Just sayin.

If you can find the removable bracket type, they can be taken off before trails

I've been thinking about mud flaps too, rubber ones is my thought. Looking for the right ones. Never thought about trail riding removal.. Food for thought.

I do what I can to not put anything under my jeep just in case. You COULD replace your flares with wider 6" ones. Bushwhacker pocket style are popular. Or flats.

If he takes them off before riding on trails, they won't keep the mud from splattering while riding on trails, which is the reson he wanted them.

I bought a set of mud flaps and that concern is the reason why I haven't installed 'em yet.
Removable ones for the trail seem like a great way to go, I'm going to look into those.

Good stuff, folks.

Yea. If you take them off everytime you wheel you wouldn't have to worry. But I like my rig "ready to wheel" the only thing I have to do when I wheel is air down. I use antirock so I don't have to disco. Among other things. I don't want a long list off stuff to change before I can go offroading.
