I had them installed. I think the gap on the rear flaps are to keep them away from the exhaust. They don't look bad. But, the front ones are very low.

I am wondering how well the flaps would hold up if you were backing up in deep snow? Is the installation strong enough to push through snow?

They survived several hard encounters with snow this winter without any issue.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Here are a few pictures of what the Jeep mud flaps look like.
I have had a few scrapes backing up in deep sand and mud and they have held up so far.
Yes the front ones do look and feel to be lower and I almost wish to swap the front with the rear but when you measure them they are the same.

The small gap on the inside of the flap does provide an escape for water or mud when there is alot of it. It also provides a little flex.

If I had to do over again I would. Look nice and function well. I think every vehicle should have them as I have had 8 chips fixed on my window in 10k miles.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I've had mine since car delivery back in April - 12,000 miles now with quite a few on really rough roads and off road - including crawling over downed trees - and the flaps have stayed put. You only notice the gap if you get down and look at them. I still get mud on the side of the car but it is way less then it would have been without. Kind of funny to see a Jeep without mud flaps (they should be standard).

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Got my Overland a month ago. I had the dealer install the flaps before I took delivery. With all the little stones that get kicked up in everyday driving, I wouldn't go without flaps, especially with dark paint.
Between the spring and summer road construction (oil-and-chip roadwork) and winter maintenance (salt chunks and cinders), the paint down there would take a beating without the flaps.
I'd rather have a Jeep with flaps that some die-hards think looks weird than a Jeep without flaps but with pitted and scarred paint that everyone thinks looks beat-up and worn especially at trade-in time.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

The boat has taken a ton of dirt, mud, and road gunk. The flaps would prevent that, as well as the beating the JGC takes as others have stated above.

110% agree with you there. I bought and installed the mud flaps and they are totally worth it.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I just bought the mud flaps from a dealer on ebay and have an installation question for the rear pair. According to the instructions it recommends removing the rear wheels in order to access the installation points. Is this really necessary?

I installed the rear flaps without removing the wheels and it was a major pain in the a$$ because you have to drill some holes and a drill won't fit because of the damn wheel/tire. Luckily though I was able to use an angled electric screwdriver to make the holes.

Just great. Something I was trying to avoid. So even with the angled electric driver it was a PIA?
