    Does anybody have a protective rubber flap or mudflap behind their tailgate spreader to keep salt from hitting the truck or going back up underneath the bumper? If so, where did you get it and how did you rig it up? Pictures would be awesome. I have a SnowEx Pivot pro 1075.

    Thanks,
    -Scott

    I ook a piece of rubber roofing material. Just happened to have some laying around the firehouse, and I just screwed it on using the bolts on the spreader frame. I will post a few pics later. Looks like I'm gonna have to load up the equipment. Might be getting some snow!!!!!

    Found that a used rubber (carpet type) runner works very well. Just hung it from the tailgate latch. Heavy enough & looks good.

    Went to the local truck accessory shop. They had stacks of blem truck mats for like $10-15 and you can make several out of these. Just cut them to size, we even had holes in ours for the dual exhaust to come out. We screwed them to the framework of the spreaders.
