I have both on right now and not so sure on the looks especially on white. Fronts aren't too noticeable but thinking of removing the rears but was curious on some before/after experience from you if you've had both scenarios especially on the rear guards.

So far, I found both the front AND the rear flaps work great!

On white I'm not sure that would fit as well as on Billet.

With the Red I would see them looking good too. Maybe I just need to get used to the rears. Like the idea of them helping protect, just not sure how much they actually help....the fronts definitely do especially around corners!

One hole needs to be drilled for the lower screw, which again I did by hand. I did not have to remove the rear wheels.

For the top fixing I used a xmas tree trim clip because again it was impossible to get a screw clip up the inside of the bumper and stop it from spinning while tightening that screw. From the underside I could see that behind the wheel arch insert there was a metal bracket with a hole in the exact location which lined up with the top hole on the mud flap. So I trimmed the guard lining a bit and used an xmas tree trim clip again and the supplied plastic washer.

Don'y have a picture showing the rear mud flap from far, but they look just like the OEM Mopar ones.

Overall very happy how it all turned out and more importantly how the shorter front flaps look. Also these were $65 vs about $180 for the Mopar ones.
Thanks for your post XtRmn8; I too cut my rear ones to miss the mufflers. I removed the rear wheels to make it easier. I'm going to have to cut the Integra side steps shorter on the front by 50mm to allow the end caps to fit back on behind the front flaps. But happy the ebay ones just come below the steps.
Plan to do it this week.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

Can anyone measure what size screws and bolts are used in the rear mudflaps? The bodyshop messed mine up after they fixed my rear bumper. Now it looks like shit. And I want the proper screws in place to secure the flaps. Tried to see if I could buy just the installation hardware, but nope. Have to buy mud flaps with it if I want them.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

I hate mudflaps but I'm still using them simply to protect the paint...
Maybe I take them off after 4 years.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

Has anybody measured the length of the various mud flaps to see if the Husky ones are shorter (or longer) than the OEM Mopar ones? I want shorter ones one the front for sure but am thinking about the OEM ones on the rear.

I only have the front mudflaps installed...
Better to keep tailgaters off my ass when driving in rain or snow (the A/T tires really throw the water and snow!).

I've driven down off of curbs and heard them scrape, but didn't see any damage to the mudflap or the vehicle afterwards.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

Would really appreciate someone with the Mopar flaps measuring how far they extend below the fender. Husky was kind enough to give me their flap measurements ... The front mudguard part #58101 is 9.5” wide and 5.25” long below the fender.* The rear mudguard 59101 is 9.75” wide and 5.5” long below the fender.

Would like the same measurements on the Mopar and any other flaps in use out there.

Thanks

Robertss1, check posts #94 and #96 on this thread. They have measurements that should help you.
