Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Good for up north with frequent snows but I think from an aestetic point of view they went out long before ricers put double wings on civics. Haven't seen any since I moved to FL 10 years ago except from out of state or Canadian cars. Useful for snow, but ugly as heck which is why no one here uses them.

Yep, for Canadians only :-)
Good for rain and gravel but bad for the looks and offroad capability.
I put them on because when I first got the car and it rained on a bad road the dirt came up to the mid-window line on the rear doors, not anymore.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Does anyone else think their jeep gets excessively dirty on te rear end? Whether it be dust or dirt from rain driving? Mine seems to. I have flaps.. My other 2 cars dont seem to get so dirty in the rear.. Maybe I'm losing it? Hah

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I noticed the rear seems to attract dirt too, but it is a hatch and hatches do get dirty.

It's the rear turbulence, a sedan stays much cleaner...

Here are some pictures of Husky Liners on a 2012 Cherokee. I am trying to compare which one looks best weathertech, husky, or OEM Jeep ones. Anyone have pictures of other brands then just the Jeep OEM ones?

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I've just fitted a set of Mopar ones ("Mud Flaps" we call them!), and definitely agree with earlier comments that the instructions are hopeless.
The front guards aren't too bad to fit, but in Autralia our CRD WK2 has dual mufflers that totally fill the space up behind where the rears go. No space to get my hand in so had to enlist my daughter with her skinny arms to get the clips in behind. The self tapping fittings and clips we get are very poor quality and the screws are soft as butter and easily stripped.
Once fitted they do look fine however and snug up with no gaps.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I'm looking at getting either the husky or the mopar. I've read about the horrible instructions on the mopar, is the husky any better? The husky is roughly $80 front/rear shipped.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I had a set on for the one I traded for this week. It took me about 45 mintues to take the front and rear off when no directions. Seemed pretty straight forward but it may be different installing them.

Well, taking stuff off is always easy :-)

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I picked up a set of flaps used, but was wondering how they should be installed. The holes seem to link up with some clips but not all holes line up with the clips. The clips do not seem to pop apart, at least not easily. Do they have to be replaced, or can you put screws into the clips? If screws what size should be used?

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Has anyone compared the Mopar and Husky mud guards side-by-side. I'm thinking of buying a set and would prefer the shorter version if there is much differene. Thanks!
