Default Flappage confusion

Ok so I've been searching for mud guards. Of all the things to be confused about! Searched the forum and decided on either weathertech or oem. I'd prefer oem.. Here's my points of confusion......

Anything I'm looking at looks like ridged plastic. Maybe it because the last truck I owned was an 88 bronco but aren't they supposed to be rubber? The ridged plastic looks cheap 2 me. I had envisioned heavy gauge rubber, maybe some chrome at the bottom.

Also the sizing is confusing. I see 11', 15' or no size at all.

And since when can't you order a set of 4? They all seem to be front or rear only. I'd like a full set. My experience is only with amazon mind you. Maybe it's the Canadian Amazon but choices seem really slim also.

Could somebody just treat me like a retard and provide a link to some good OEM guards that would fit a '13 sport?

If these are the OEM's you want I will sell you mine,



I used them 3 months and they sanded down the paint off my truck, I have Weathertech's now and love them

Make an offer I will ship you mine. There in great shape, have the paper work and all screws

I thought so. I might pick up a set for my Ram. The shipping they charge for our Canadian friends is ridiculous though.

Thanks! But I still am confused by the ridged plastic. Mud flaps to me were always "flaps"...thick rubber not plastic.
I don't mind if they eat the paint, I'll throw some 3m down first and they probably won't ever be taken off.

Those look better! Does anybody have experience with these? edit: Did some reading on other forums and people really seem to love them. I'm surprised there's almost no mention of them on this site.

I agree. I happen to live on the border so I'd get them shipped to Washington
