So I can take the guards of my 2011 and install them on a 2014?

Wondering about this myself, especially because the installation instructions say "not for off road use". I've done some two track, but nothing approaching real off road.

Looking at them, I think the rears would be fine, but the fronts are definitely low and back far enough to catch. Debating on either looking into quick release fasteners or maybe putting a slight relief cut into them so if they do catch, the flap will bend rather then pull he fasteners out of the wheel well.

Probably the latter so I still have the rocker panel protection.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

I'm thinking about the fronts to help protect the rocker panels and doors.

I have a '14 overland, so the wheel lips are body color (deep cherry).

Wondering if I'd need to shoot them in body color to make them look less out-of-place..

just thinking out loud..

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

Wreck, I like your idea of creating some way for the fronts to bend back. I wouldn't mind buying another set if they hit something and broke. But I could see things getting ugly if the fronts made contact with an object and the mounting locations gave before the flaps did. Mind posting some pics if you come up with something?

I was just thinking of notching them on the front outside and inside edge, right below the mounting area. Figuring the curve to the sides are what give them rigidity, a strategic notch here would allow them to break away, just need to get the depth right so they stay rigid in normal use.

Not planning on addressing the issue until hinting season, but I'll definitely post a pic or two.

Gravel roads are why I got them. I put on some more aggressive Michelin LTX A/Ts, which I quickly learned are excellent rock chuckers.

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

I went to my dealer to have these installed on my 2014 Overland and they told me that the flaps wouldn't fit properly on the 2014 as the holes don't line up properly. Is he missing something?

As long as you don't have a Summit or SRT (which you don't), they fit just fine. Fronts were a 30 minute install, rears are a bit more involved. It is DIY if you are a little mechanically inclined.

I installed them on my MY14 overland just fine. Fit perfectly. The directions are horrible, but after I figured them out it was a breeze. I posted some pictures earlier in this thread if you want to see. They're on a billet silver.
