Anyone using after market mud flaps ?
I have the stock ones and was down in Missouri a couple weeks ago.
Came to road construction where they were putting oil and rock on the road.
Got home to find the lower half of my truck covered in dried oil/tar.
Paint reducer and elbow grease got it off.
Looks like the factory mud flaps could have done a better job.
I do have the duratracs so that might be part of the problem.

Thanks,
Don
 
I have the Weathertech ones. They are a little longer than the oem upgraded ones. I like them so far.
 
Can you post a couple pics. Might be the key to eliminating all my rock chips.
 
Stock flaps creased My fender. The ones behind the front wheel. I went over a small rock on the right front really slowly and when it came down it hit the flap and pushed my fender up. I couldn't open the passenger door. I had to push the upper part of fender to get it to drop so the door would open. Only had 600 miles on it.

That's terrifying. I have dropped down on to mine. So far the flap creased. I am willing to sacrifice the mud flaps, not the fender. I have combination step/rock sliders behind the flaps but not quite butted up to them. The sliders are my most important mod. The bottom of them has already taken a beating to save my rocker panels several times. If the mud flaps push my fenders up I will be pissed.

Yeah, I was passed. Left a little crease in the fender. Go push on your fender, they are quite flimsy. I was surprised. Trying to keep them light I suppose.
 
Garbage manufacturing. Made from aluminum cans. If you scrape the paint off, it says Pepsi underneath. :) I had exactly 21 miles on my new truck with stock flaps and threw a rock into my door, knocked paint off and dinged metal. Screamed obscenities and then ordered WeatherTech replacements. Drove them out to Colorado and put about 2400 miles on that trip. Lots of offroad and rocks hitting them. They did well. They aren't perfect and I also wonder about them when descending on rocks/traversing terrain. But they're better than stock for sure.
 
Has anyone installed the Rokblokz flaps? I had them on a Tacoma and really liked them. A google search only finds the product page. I couldn't find any mention or review from any other source.
