It was only $31.00 and it is sturdy, folds flat, and holds a lot of stuff.
Is that somehow attached to the Jeep. What prevents stuff like Milk from fallen out when you take a turn, etc. I find the hooks to be a pain and not 100% so I usually end up putting bags in the back seat or floor.

It just sits on the carpet or Husky Liner rubber mat (that I have installed). It does not move around & each compartment is sectioned off by dividers. It has handles on each end that you could tie off to something if you REALLY didn't want it to slide anywhere!

Re: Mud and hooks

The back of the driver and front passenger seats also have the grocery bag hooks (2 on each). They are just the right level to let the weight of the groceries sit on the back seat foot wells, and hold the bag handles to keep them from spilling/sliding.

I'm thinking it cant hurt.

That's a cool rig Hemi. I might just pick one up.
It helps some, I don't see that much damage after driving on gravel at speed with the mopar flaps.

You might want to consider aftermarket protective film as well...

Hmm, and here the missus has been using them as purse hangers.

I use a couple of those plastic storage crates bungee'd down to keep stuff from flying around... and the bag hooks at the rear.

It is very stable without it so I didn't want to drill a hole into the sheet metal just to install it. The rear flaps were already installed from the dealer so don't know anything about that install. The rears have the Jeep logo but the fronts do not. I bought the fronts from Courtesy Chrysler for $48.
Here are a few shots of the front mud flaps. They make a huge difference!
No worries. They look great in my opinion. I just called Tower and the guy said they have lots for the Jeep GC but that his computer says the won't fit the Summit I thought you had the Summit? Or did you just buy them and viola they fit. They want $63 for a set. Seems steep for mud flaps. Amazon had a set of Husky ones for $38 but not for the rear?

What to do what to do...

No, I have the Overland. I don't know of any difference between the two models?
Not sure why they would not fit? Yes, that is a little steep for the flaps!

Even the husky ones don't fit the SRT or Summit
Mine has a small piece of chrome that runs from the front wheel to the back. I might just grab the set from the dealer and do a dry fit to see how it looks.

Can't believe they don't make a set for the summit.

That rear quarter is taking a beating.

Actually Husky does now produce a version for the Summit—I installed them on my Summit a few weeks ago (front and rear). It took about 50 mins to install them, and they seem to work really well. Installation of the rears is a bit awkward (it might help to remove the rear wheel), but overall I am very relieved to have them in place—I drive on gravel roads quite frequently.

There are several threads here on mud flaps (or mud guards) over the past year. e.g. 2014 Summit Mud Guards
