Mud flaps for hood river rpod

Looking for suggestions/comments about installing mud flaps on my high clearance rpod. Should I, and if so are there best ways to go abaout doing it? I live and explore where there are dirt roads so want to reduce mud thrown up to windows behind wheels. Would like to protect the plumbing behind the left wheel too. And it would be good to reduce chances of throwing rocks up when on many gravel patches that are a part of the highways here in Alaska and Yukon Territory.

Since you go off road with it, you will want to stay around 9" off the ground to keep from catching them on anything. You can get the flap material and hardware from DuraFlap to make your own. Or they can cut them to the size and shape you want. You need to be able to attach them to metal, not the body only.

I went to the auto parts store and bought a single truck mud flap (semi truck size). Cut it into two pieces and screwed them to a frame member behind the rear tires. Works great and was cheap. I paid about $12 for the mud flap.
