Mud flaps

Just bought a new Ford F 250 Lariat? What do some of you use as mud flaps to keep from throwing rocks and such up against your trailer? I have looked at several auto parts stores and cant find anything. If I can find it I would like a one piece that goes all the way across the back of my truck and if possible have it removable. Thanks

When the weather warms and I get the truck from storage, think of installing these.

Here is a website that sells what you are looking for. They cost alot more than when I bought mine 3 years ago.

Cloud-Rider&reg Designs Ltd. - Product Features and Information

I'm not associated with them but pleased with my purchase and how well it works.
Good luck with your search.

twosocks, why not consider the opposite and put a stone guard on the trailer? Treadbrite is inexpensive to DIY once you find you local metal supply. Spray on truck bedliner is a great alternative too and can be color-matched as well. There's also automotive paint protection film. I've used all 3 approaches between different campers and trailers I previously or currently own and they work well.

Bought the Rock Tamers a year ago when my trailer was new. I am 100% happy with them, though I did have to grind the gussets on my hitch shank a bit to make them fit between the hitch and the truck bumper. I also wrap tied a couple of pieces of foam plumbing insulation on the shafts of the Rock Tamer in case it jiggled loose and rubbed against the truck bumper.

You should check the adjustment bolts on the Rock Tamer each time you tow because they will back off, or dig into the shank and loosen up.

It does an awesome job of keeping rocks off the trailer, and as I am several miles off the pavement on a farm, keeping the trailer clean (which diamond plate alone will NOT do).

I have similar factory installed Ram flaps, and they don't do nearly enough to prevent damage and mud from hitting the trailer. They do a good job in preventing damage to the truck, but I managed to through a rock clear through the aluminum skin of my old trailer.

Hence the Rock Tamers on my current TT.
