I noticed that Husky Liners has a set for both front and rear available on Amazon. Appearance wise the only difference is the lack of a Jeep logo. Anyone have any experiences with these versus the molar, in terms of fit and finish as well as how low they are?

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

After putting on the MOPAR rock rails on my 2014 JGC Overland - I put on the molded splash guards in the rear (part # 82212020AB), and modified the front splash guards to fit (used the flat guards - part #82212020AB). I did something similar on my 2012 JGC Overland after I discovered the molded front guards didn't fit well due to the infringement of the rock rails. I had to trim the front flat splash guards to fit well around the interior wheel well. I like the flat guards in front because they fit nearly flush to the rock rails end cap. Planning on a hand wash sometime the next couple days - so I'll try to take better pictures showing the solutions I used.

Haven't taken specific pictures of the splash guards, but here is what I have so far:

Rear Molded Guards:


Front Flat Splash Guards:

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

I wish someone would step up and make a set for the Summit, we live
on gravel and driving only 25 mph for 3 miles is getting old, still have
some nicks in the rear door trim already.

^^^^^^ X3.

Is there a proven source of mud flap for 2014 Summits?

Re: Mud Flaps on 2014

After having the Mopar Jeep labeled mud flaps on since October I'm thinking of removing them. I snapped the right front one in half traversing a deep ice rut. It didn't snap completely across so I drilled some holes in it and tied it together with zip ties. The main issues is they wiggle a bit while driving and have worn the black wheel well flares on all sides a bit. It is very noticeable to the touch. The plastic rivets just don't keep them tight enough.

So those worried about damaged if they get hung up....they will snap just at the point they hollow out.

They also appear to scuff the moulding over time as the plastic rivets loosen.

They haven't kept road tar and such off the body either. I have a big job getting that off as the jeep is covered on all sides.

Has anyone with the 2014 put on mud flaps or are planning on it? Any pictures would be greatly appreciated so I can have an idea of what they would look like. Also, if anyone knows how to work photoshop those pics would work as well. My jeep is going to be billet silver and the overland package, so it's going to have body color trim. Any opinions or suggestions would be great. Thanks!
It might trouble when in off-road tracel with the splash guard!

Sorry not true to the best of my knowledge. They all say "also fits Summit" BUT it gives years of 11-14. Problem is that Jeep has everyone confused since the Summit for 11-13 was just an options thing with same lower body panels. For 2014 the Summit is a different body style (partially) in that the lower skirt is flared, etc. Therefore, it is not possible for a mud flap to fit BOTH a 2013 Overland Summit AND a 2014 Summit.

Therefore, any mud flap on eBay that says it is for 2011-2014 JGC (Fits: Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit) WILL NOT fit a 2014 Summit.

I would LOVE to be wrong.

The body is the same , but only the face and tail are different style. So the mud flap can fit them all.
DON'T WORRY

ijeeping

I don't think is just the face and tail that are different...
I believe that on the overland and below models, there is a black trim piece around the wheel opening.

On the Summit and SRT, the wheel opening is surrounded by a sleaker body colored trim piece. The profile of these trim pieces is different and therefore would make molded mud flaps fit differently.

I really hope that someone corrects me if I'm wrong...but I'm pretty sure an flap designed for the overland will not fit the summit and SRT.

I'd like a part# if someone has successfully put fitted flaps on a Summit.

Thanks for your help.
