Question Mud Flaps

Hey, anyone out there put the full width mud flap across the back of their truck to prevent nicks and stone damage to TT. Going to Alaska this June and want to prevent damage. Is it worth the cost?? What kind did you get?

I just use the Rock Tamers.

Not full width but they do a fine job.

I take it that you use them as well.

Tough part was putting the RT logo on, power drill with a bit tip made it so much faster.....

Added weight would overload my Silverado.

Besides that, it is lowered in the back and doesn't throw crap on the 5er.

I'd like them- just haven't been able to spring for them yet.

tclark going to Alaska, Nice! for sure put some sort of mud flap on your truck to prevent stone damage and also be prepared to lose a windshield in your veh. from others that don't have them !!!

I put these on my silverado 3500. Got them cheap at autozone. Easy to install and work pretty well. Sorry about the pics, it's a dark rainy night here tonight.

I have a deal that I made myself.
It's a piece of angle iron that spans the full width of the truck.Attached (bolted) to that is what's called Hula Skirt.It's the same tough nylon "mudflaps" that UPS uses on it's long haul trailers.I got mine from JC whitney.
It attaches to the hitch with a 2"-female that's welded to the angle iron-dead center.
IBC Brush-type Splash Guard/Mud flaps
Mine is just like this.It might weigh 5 #.I use it all the time and it's 15 yrs old.PS-this one is a deal-buy it and never regret it.
