Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

[QUOTE=BobT;890220]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.QUOTE]

What are you talking about??? The mud flaps are so low that you would never even come close to paint if your mud flaps hit first. There is also a nifty little thing called a back up camera, which to my knowledge is standard equipment. There are also mirrors.

I was reversing almost parallel to the wall and drifted towards it. It couldn't be seen from the driver's position nor with the reversing camera.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I know what he is talking about.

On my wifes VWCC the mud flaps tend to bottom out just before the car does, so they are a nice warning indicator.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

My newbie quewstion: Are they (front and rear OEM (Mopar) mudflaps no drill, or do I have to make holes in my 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo? Hoping they fit OEM holes/mounting points ala Honda vehicles......and can you recommend a good place to buy them if they are no drill?

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Thank you all. I have them on order= I live at the Jersey Shore, and the soil here is sand and gravel based, so stones are constantly getting caught in the tire treads and kicked out at speed, so the mud flaps are a good idea to prevent chips and road rash along the fenders/rocker panels of a vehicle with such large tires.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Has anyone found mud guards for the 2014 SUMMIT? I ordered the JGC mud flaps from MOPAR ON-LINE and then had to return them. Their WEB site now specifically states that they do not fit the SUMMIT. I called Auto Anything and found HUSKY which listed the SUMMIT. When I called I mad e them double check with HUSKY and they said that their WEB site was wrong and only the Rear Husky will fit the SUMMIT.

I still don't trust any at this point. Dealership checked for me and said that MOPAR has not made them to fit the SUMMIT and they do not know when they will be out

Thanks

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I have a Hawk and did a dry fit and it appears that they will work. I'll know for sure this weekend. I'll mock them up before any drilling occurs.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Just to jump in on the mud flap debate, Ive always had them on my GC's. They looked fine to me and blended well with the trim pieces. I traded my 2011 for a 2014 Overland this past Friday. On this style the GC it has none of the black trim to offset the flaps. I have Cherry Crystal and I think it would look awful. I am however worried about rock chips this winter.

Im still undecided for the most part..

Went through the same decision process with my wife's Billet Silver Overland. Yes, the splash guards would look better if the GC had black lower cladding. But we put them on anyway and I just watched my wife drive it out of the garage and down the driveway, and it really doesn't look bad at all. In some ways, it just seems appropriate for a Jeep to have splash guards, I guess. Bottom line was the fear of rock chips.

Thanks for the feedback.
Now I need to decide, do I buy them and do it myself or take it into the dealer. Dealer will probably hit me up pretty good on labor.

Yep, the dealer will. One hour's worth at our dealer.
