No MudFlaps?

I've owned my JGC for about 20hrs now, but I just realized, there's no mudflaps or guards on these vehicle.

I thought they were required by law. Or is that just for pickup trucks?

IDT they are required by law. They are not standard on any trim model but are a dealer/user installed item. Mopar/Jeep mud flaps are available on Amazon for around $65 frt & rr set. U can install or have dealer do it.

Re: No MudFlaps?

For passenger vehicles, mud flaps/splash guards are only required in some (all?) states if your tires extend out past the body of the vehicle.

Didn't know that. Must be the mud flap lobby.

Re: No MudFlaps?

I've owned many vehicles, and none came with them. The Mopar ones are really an eyesore on the WK2s IMO. I had them for about a year, and then yanked them off. If I had to drive gravel often, I would of course leave them on. My Ram doesn't have them either.

The rears look fine to me. The fronts are too long so I shortened mine 1.5" and they function just fine and look much better! Too many gravel roads and parking lots around here to not have them.

Just order front and rear Jeep flaps. Hopefully install isn't too much of a pain.

Can you post some pictures of your flaps? If be interested in how they look shortened and how you did it.

If you look at the pics on my profile I have some with the flaps. Mine are normal length and don't have any issues.

How'd ya shorten the fronts? I've been considering a Dremel, but first being a devout coward, was thinking of buying another set just in case I mess it up.

I measured up in the center 1 3/8ths in. and taped off with masking tape to use as a cutting guide following the original contour. I used a drywall knife with a new blade to make the cut and touched up the corners with a fine file. They do not look altered - looks like stock only shorter. The new length is about the same as the rears. Was off road a few days ago on some moderately rocky 4wd forest service roads and had no issues. OR1 and ORII in the sections with larger rocks. I will try to post a pic when wife gets home with the veh.
