The comments from haters on this thread is to lol at. To the OP... Ultimately it is your jeep you put on what you like, asking in an open forum what people think is like asking a wall what it thinks. Look around you will see plenty of picture with diverse add-ons, make up you own mind.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I have the Mopar ones on my '14 Grand Cherokee Limited and wouldn't consider not having them. Here in this part of PA, they put gravel on all the roads in the winter time. I would get dozens, if not more, chips from that gravel if I didn't have them. Plus, I like the look from behind. Personal preference.

Ya, I discovered 2 paint chips on the lower side of my driver and passenger door, which is the reason I got them. Now, I love the look of having them on. Makes it look more like a truck

No probs if you are prepares to do a bit of cutting, see the pick. I left them off as per the rock-rail installation instructions but put them back on when I saw the mess not having them made up the side of the car. When they eventually break off, I'll might replace them with soft rubber ones.

I might have to give it a shot. I think with some door edge trim from autozone the edge of the cut would look a bit better. I'll give it a shot.

I have 200,000 on a 2004 GC that we will keep as backup vehicle, I bet it would last another 100k easy. Spent minimal on repairs also.

The Fronts went on pretty good and I don't think they look bad. If it was all painted down there they might take more away from the looks. But with the same color plastic around them they look fine.

I don't think they will save anything from rusting out.

What I like them for the most is keeping tar off the sides. My wifes VW CC was covered in tar (white car) every time I washed it and it was an hour chore cleaning it every time. Since I put flaps on her car it's been much easier to keep clean. Her car is very slick looking and the mud flaps don't look too bad.

So I was about to put the rear set on and wondered how much function do you really get out of them in the rear. Truck doesn't look stupider with them just on the front.

If it protects from tar or crud AT ALL on the very short rear rocker I'll put them on.

I don't like how rear ones go on compared to the fronts, looks week.

By the way does the plastic washer you cut off the mud flap go behind the mud flap or in front? I don't quite understand the purpose of this washer. The drawing is ambiguous. In one spot it kind of indicates it should be behind and in another it kind of indicates in front. It makes a little more sense being behind, that's where I put them. If it was in front it seems there would be more washers than one too.
I ended up putting all 4 on. Rear ones went on better than I expected.

I don't think they add or take away anything.

I didn't follow directions on the rears. I put the lowest clip in the wheel well behind the wheel well liner. Doing it as the directions suggested pushed the liner back a bit and created a nice gap for sand to find it's way in there. With it behind the liner it pulled the liner tight against mud flap and lip. Basically I did what they suggest on the bottom clip that screws in from the bottom.

I'd hate to take these off for off roading.

I plan on getting 250K miles out of my truck and I don't want the rockers to rust out. I put the flaps on. I am neither here nor there on the look, but do like the fact that I am not getting chips and tar on the sides of the truck.

In the end, do what you want - it's your truck.

Perfect post.
Do what you think will serve your needs.
I plan on keeping mine for quite some time also and here in MN there's just too much crap on the roads year round. The front guards keep the snow/slush/ice off the bottoms of the doors. I didn't buy/install the rear guards because I didn't like the way they looked....

AND...
It's nice to be able to slip to the left (or right) a little in the lane when it's raining/snowing and use the rear tires to throw spray/snow onto the jerk tailgating me.

I don't like the look of just 2 mudflaps.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I think the rears look fine.

Also the rear mud flaps have saved me doing body damage to the car. I was backing towards a low brick wall I couldn't see. The mud flaps touched first and warned me. I got a few scratches on the mud flaps but better that than paintwork.

Anyway, what's this fascination with looks? I thought it was performance that matters. No one would want me for my looks.
