Default Mud flaps/guards ?'s

Yep, I'm a fan of them. Firm believer. been on every one of my vehicles.

I have a preference to the molded ones as well

So the question - how many are running them and to those of you - are the OEM's the best way to go or are any of the aftermarket ones a good fit?

stealership stocks, and want's $160 for a set with the ram head logo. I think that's outrageous high, and odd too, since they'll sell me weathertech mats for $92. maybe their mudflaps are extra rare gold lamay or something....

Yeah, I like them too. I just bought a front pair of Mopar flaps. $45 from the dealer.
I bought the thick rubber flaps, the only ones that will fit a truck with flares and steps, or so they said. I checked on the rears, they were about the same price, I need to get them at a later date.

I ordered the Weathertech digital fit molded ones. They are supposed to arrive Friday so should go on this weekend. I read on another post they don't interfere with the step and saw on their site they have an option for flares or no flares. Front & rear was $80 shipped.

I am running Husky Mud guards I purchased from AutoAnything for 72 bucks shipped.

I think they work just fine.

i find the molded ones too short in the winter when you have a 4x4 and drive in the winter "mess".

I run Mopar Molded on the front and some MudTech (brand name) from Amazon on the back. I wanted the ones from amazon on the rear cause those are the drive wheels and they hang a bit lower (2" or so) than any molded ones I have seen. Thats cruicial for my rig since I tow a fiberglass boat. Nothing like getting where your going to go fishing and finding rock chips in the gelcoat.



good view of the rear:

I bought the husky brand for the front only. Only reason I bought them was when I figure out what step bars I want to put on my truck, the guards will help keep them clean. I will use my truck ocassionaly in the field moving hay equipt/tractor around.

I havn't installed them, yet, since i havn't bought step bars, but will as soon as I get a set. I did hold them up there and they seem to be a good fit. I bought the husky for price and I have installed a set on a 08 dodge 3500 and the fit was top notch. Nether truck has factory fender flares.

I just got my factory Ram splash guards on, front and rear. The rear went on easy.
Front because I have factory running board they did not want to go on, so with a heat gun, I ran the temp. up on the plastic where they came into contact, with the running boards
I shaped a dent in the splash guards and they fit just right.
I sure didn't want to take the running boards off and cut them, 1/2 inch.
As to how far out they are, on the upper part they come out to the edge of the sipes
on the tires, and in about 1/2 inch on the lower edge. I can't see having them out any
farther than that, just too easy to snag them on brush, and taking a chance of ripping them off.

Last week I put on front and back Husky mudguards. Fit good. Make it easier on yourself and watch a couple installation videos on you tube first! I used my drill (needed for metal) at an angle in the front (with tires straight) and it wouldn't fit in the back but you only have to make a hole through plastic back there so I was able to do that with the small knife on my leatherman. Note that you have to go through two pieces of plastic in the back, took me a minute or two to realize that. You use the stock two holes/screws plus the extra one you make on each one. Soapy water lets you position the clear sticker (paint protector) along the edge easy.
