With an angled drill/screwdriver it's doable. Still a PITA though. Plus the instructions are pathetic. I really hate Mopar's instructions.

Just take your time and you will be fine

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Double-concur with Rage; PITA regardless. I ended up taking the tires off which helped, but still need to be a contortionist. The instructions blow too. I had screws where it said there was a plastic part to cut, so that made it a bit more difficult because one screw didn't want to back out. The fronts went on like a piece of cake, but if you can jack it up some or put it on blocks, it'll be easier to drill the hole and put in the screw from the bottom. Glad I did it though.

Husky doesn't (yet) make a mud flap for the Grand Cherokee. In my opinion stick with Mopar.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Thinking about getting these...Does anyone have pictures of them on a Laredo? Also, does anyone have pictures of the install?

Re: mud flaps on GC ?



I will only put mud flaps on if I can get something like this for the WK2. Or Yosemite Sam "Back Off" ones.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I agree that they look better without...but after 9k miles and one winter I sure wish I had put them on from the start (that or installed a clear bra). My rear rocker panels are quite chipped (those super small chips that make the whole are look white) and I think the paint would be almost non-existant in that area after just a few years. I don't live on a gravel road or anything like that...just do typical driving.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I agree that they tend to detract from the look of the vehicle, however...
I have put them on all my vehicles to protect the lower sides from gravel,
salt and all the cr@p they put on our Ontario roads in the winter.
I WILL be putting them on my Overland, even though it looks better without them.

The KEY thing is - to get them 100% straight (level) when installing.
I always remove the tires to aid the install, and don't rely on eye-balling it.
I use a level just to make sure. Nothing worse than standing back and finding out that one of them is cock-eyed.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Do the mud flaps hit the ground when you lower the Quadra lift to the lowest setting ?

I'm hoping the flaps will help keep some of the heavier stuff off the side of the car - I have them on all of our other vehicles.
TERNST - Do you have any pics of your Jeep with the mud flaps? I have white also but I'm not sure what the flaps will look like. Do you think they look ok?

No, they don't scrape the ground when in Park mode.
At least, they shouldn't, if they're installed right.
