Do you still have them?

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Just installed front and back this weekend, I have never been a fan of front mudflaps (took thme off my tacoma which has biggest flaps in history) however, i wanted the protection after seeing some of the paint damage on this site. Just want to give the following advice for those that do this in future:

1) 2012 has a bolt now in rear wheel well where instructions show you cutting out a plastic clip (because of this i didnt pay attention and cut a clip that was supposed to stay)
2) after cutting/breaking top off of clip it may not fall through the whole to allow new screw, if this happens put cutters behind plastic trip and cut the clip again, this will allow it to fall out easily.
3) intall all screw/bolts possible before drilling any holes, thus ensures you only drill one hole into your car hahaha.
4) i WOULD take off rear tires for install, while i think you can do it with them on it is much easier with them off.
5) squeeze metel clips with pliers before hooking to tabs behind the felt so they wont slip while getting everything lined up.


All that said mod away!!!! I installed mine while putting on my winter tires and wheels, so they are on with 18" wheels, interested to see in spring how they look with the 20".

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Woodknuckle, I do have them...however I seem to have misplaced the original packaging. They are used (were on car for 2 days before I couldn't take them anymore). Are you interested?

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I put mine on today.
The instructions really suck.
The fronts went on okay and are very secure.
The rears are just into plastic and seem like they would break off in a stiff wind.
If they are still there in the summer I'll crawl under and re-install them.
(maybe add some metal brackets behind.
It is -3 outside today - I wasn't standing by to admire them.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

In my opinion they are a must as half of our driving is on rural Saskatchewan gravel roads that can be dry gravel flinging tracks or mud, slop, and snow at different times of the year. Worth putting on and not hard to do yourself either.

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I just put mine on the fronts. I must say in was a much bigger PITA than I was expecting! I couldn't get the little metal clips provided with the splash guards and the screw holes on the frame to line up. I ending up bending and removing all the paint on the bracket of the wheel well where you are supposed to screw in the center of the splash guards. I was very frustrated and did not screw the lower screw through the plastic because I ran out of daylight. Is that fourth screw really necessary?

Do you drive where it snows? There is a thread on here about the damage caused on some people's trucks when driving on sanded roads. Based on that I installed the mudflaps. That said a lot of people have had no issues.

yes, there is snow where i live - midwest. that's kind of why i did it. just figured why not? but i wanted to make sure they weren't for off roaring - which i don't think that they are . . .

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Some guys have done some light off road with them, however based on how low they hang (especially the front) they are likely to get damaged in any kind of serious rock work. I know on my Tacoma guys were always complaining about the front ones being torn off.
