The Mopar mud flaps are hard plastic. I cracked mine early on doing some off-roading but they are still hanging in there doing their job. Are the Husky flaps more flexible?

Damn... I don't ever recall seeing any OEM Mopar splash guard that's cut out like that. That kind of defeats the purpose of having them.

For the Summit and High Altitude the correct splash guard part numbers are:

82214084 front
82214085 rear

Your dealer's parts department may tell you there are no no guards that fit these models because these numbers may not show up in their computer. Have them run the above numbers... I guarantee you that they fit perfectly and the fronts aren't cut out like your picture shows.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Well, once again I have to apologize and correct myself on my post above.

Before I posted that, I actually went out in the garage and looked at my front guards. Of course it was too dark to get a proper look, but it looked like they weren't cut out as shown in Baby67's picture.

Later I had the Jeep outdoors and was walking by it and I go WTH? Mine are cut out like that as well. They fit so nice that I never noticed. Of course having a Granite Crystal HA helped with this illusion.

I don't understand why they made them this way. It would've been simple to mold them so the painted area was covered. They were on my 14 Overland.

Oh well, it's better than nothing. At least the part numbers are correct.

I would say they are more flexible and won't crack on you. Turns out the mopar ones don't fit the front of my jeep, only the back so i returned them. Sticking with the huskies for now.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Can one of you guys take a picture of the rear mounting locations and what kind of screws they are? The bodyshop reinstalled mine sloppy. I want to fix it.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Part # 82214084 front splash guards require drilling, do they provided plastic rivets or metal screws? At the time, they did not show front splash guards for the Summit, so I only installed the rears with the plastic rivets. I am not keen on drilling into painted body parts, or using metal screws. I liked how the plastic rivets worked on the rears. MDBones was the fronts an easy install like the rears?

I couldn't tell you if drilling was required or what mounting hardware was provided as the dealer had them installed before I took delivery of the vehicle.

Installation (front and rear) looks straightforward, simple and they fit the flares perfectly. Mine were mounted with plastic rivets, no screws. 5 rivets each for the fronts, 3 rivets each for the rears.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

If you're trying to reduce mud/rock throwing, I think the fender flares are a better look.

If you're talking about adding wider aftermarket flares, probably. But not everyone likes the looks of those or may not want to add them to a HA or Summit. So for those people choices are limited to mud flaps or installing something like X-Pel in the critical areas.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

Installed Husky custom fit mud flaps on my summit and I like the look. I was trying to reduce the sandblasting to the section on the front of my lower rear fender.

Mildly succesfull.

I think this is about performance rather than look. In terms of stopping rocks thrown up onto body work, mud flaps are the only way to go. The only issue is that they tend to get ripped off during heavy off-roading. The hard plastic stock Mopar ones work great on-road but tend to crack if bent back in deep mud.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I just recently purchased a 2016 Summit, and I definitely want front and rear mudflaps, but the dealership told me that they are not available as OEM. I just sent an email to my sales person, based on this thread, and included the part numbers 82214084 and -4085.

If the OEM mudflaps really do exist, which is better... OEM or Husky?

Thanks!
