I have the ram mud flaps. I did put the extra screw in mine. The screws are coated and I never had a problem with rust on the last 4 trucks.

I chose the huskys because they come with precut protective tape. The Ram ones get sand behind them and then the vibration driving down the road wears the paint off the fenders underneath and BOOM Rust! The thing you where trying to stop! Just my 2C as I caught on with my 07 Ram before all the paint was gone, but through clear coat in a year. I also skipped the one additional mounting screw, not needed like others stated.

I decided to go with the Gatorbacks. I liked the look and they seemed like good quality flaps overall.

This was recommended to me by 2 dealerships instead of drilling in to a brand new truck. Then I filled the extra hole in the splash guard with black silicone to stop anything from getting in it and behind the splash guard
I have the same OEM mud flaps on my sport. I did drill the hole on the front ones. They fit a lot better. I took a lot of black gasket silicone and put into the drilled hole and all around it to seal it all up. Without this extra screw there I would be concerned the mud flaps would move/vibrate around too much against the truck's paint. With the snow that sticks to them here in the winter, I would think this would definitely happen. I choose the lesser of the two evils.

+1 on the gators they are an excellent choice, pricey, but the best quality wise. I have a set as well.

I just put on some Weathertech mud flaps front and rear on my 2014 Sport. They fit good and were an easy install. I also added the third fastener just to be safe and secure. I'll post up some pics soon.

Same here. Mud flaps on my '04 Ram wore the paint off. I think the Huskys have something like a 3M strip that goes on before the flap. Weathertech looked good but didn't provide the strip. We also passed on drilling the extra screw hole.

I had the (frt & rr) OEM flaps on my 10 sport, the OEM flaps wore the paint off less than a year, so this time i bought the husky`s for my 14 sport, i`m much happier with them over the OEM flaps. (the husky`s seem wider and cover more area, and dont have a soup bowl on the bottom like the OEM either, that seem to hold alot of snow) I too, placed black silicone all the way around the flaps to stop any moisture from getting between the flap and the fender, even sealed the fasteners/screws to keep them from getting rusted like my 2010 did. I felt it didnt need the extra hole drilled in the fender either. Husky`s were the same price, but i believe they are a far better flap than the OEM. They also come with the paint protection film to install under the flaps.

Another thing i like about the husky`s, the OEM wheel to wheel step tubes dont rub on them like the OEM ones would. (i held a OEM flap up, it was hitting the step tube, which is one of the main reasons i went with husky`s and found i liked the look of them better) The husky`s seem to go with the roundness of the side of the truck lines as well, the OEM ones were just straight down and also did not cover the wheel area as good as the husky`s.
