mud flaps on GC ?

Has anyone put OEM mud flaps on their new GC?

I've always put mud flaps on my previous cars, so I'm wondering if they are a good thing for the new Overland...or just a fashion faux pas?

I just put them on my Overland - at first I thought they where big and hung down too low, but with the huge 20" tires I guess they are in proportion. I would not put them on if you plan to do off road stuff.

See my dirty flaps attached:

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I was thinking about getting some mud guards, but they seem to hang pretty low, especially the front ones.

Got them and they serve their purpose really well in sloppy Canadian winters.

Good to know as they did not seem super strong and the mounting was not that rugged either - I pictured 6" of ice & snow packed in there and seeing them fall off. If they work good in Canada should be fine in Massachusetts.

No mudflaps on mine, don't like the way they look, cheapens the car in my opinion.
