Default Molded Splash Guards

Am thinking of picking up a set of Molded Splash Guards or Molded Mud Flaps before the winter hits. I am pretty sure I want a custom molded set so they fit and look like they should have been there from the factory. I am just not sure what options are out there or which companies product is better then others. Anyone that has a set can you post pics and details on which brand, etc. they are.

I like the look of the Mopar molded ones linked below but wish I could get them plain without the Rams head. Wondering if there is a company out there that has a similar product to these Mopar custom molded ones but maybe for a better price or ones offered without an logos or are the Mopar ones that much better then the rest?

Any help, pics, opinions, etc. will be helpful. thanks

weathertech also makes molded guards. Take a look and see if you like them any better.

Bordin, thanks for the pics. Are those the Mopar ones? They definitly wrap around the fender more then I thought they would. How was the installation, any drilling required?

I too have the molded Mopar splash guards on my truck for a year now and I'm happy with them. Install is simple,with many of the factory body holes used to mount the guards, do note one step in the instructions has you drilling one hole in the wheelwell to mount each if the guards if I recall...but in if your nervous...just leave it out the other screws are strong enough for most situations.
In my opinion the Ram head logo is small enough that most won't even notice it.

Like My foot said pretty simple install, I didn't even drill that extra hole they required, the guards were pretty sturdy using the existing holes.
I can't complain though, they do their job and still holding up!

If you're concerned about your paint under the molded Dodge guards,
put a layer of 3M clear protector on first.

I ran my Ram last Winter with the "dealer installed" Mopar molded guards,
I removed them for the Summer drag race season to find dirt/sand that got trapped between the guard and the fenders rubbed the paint off

Had a fight with the dealer about re-painting the lower fenders, still not resolved.








I prefer the non-flap look, but definitely need the extra protection in the Winter here, my rocker panels take a beating!

I also used the clear protective tap before putting my molded splash guards on.
