    I put the Ford molded mud flaps on both my Super Dutys and they're gone! My friend has had the same problem with his. They get torn off in the deep snow from plowing, mounting system is poor. My advice? Don't waste your money! I'll be using cut down truck flaps from here on out.

    I have Husky Liner mud faps on mine and they are great. The rears don't use that stupid bracket the factory ones do.:(

    I have the ford models, and they're still on there....
    but I noticed they don't do a thing for stoping the flow of ka ka all over the side of my truck.

    Mine too. Backed into some deeper snow, and tore off the inside screws, and that plastic insert thing your screw into on 2 of the three screw. The last one twisted up the cheesy sheet metal from flapping in the breeze before I saw it. I fixed them, but don't think they will last much longer.

    Your right they don't last long, but do look good as long as they do last.

    Just slush build up will tear them off too.
