    Anyone running mud flaps ?

    Looking to stop the barrage of debris on the undercarriage of my truck and I was thinking about installing mudflaps.

    Originally I was going to use rubber ones, but they tend to flap around. Either a rigid rubber, or plastic seems the way to go.

    Any hints, tips, or experiences with mud flaps that you care to share ?

    Have rigid plastic ones behind all 4 wheels on my ranger, they seem to keep the snow and ice out from under the truck but do like to hold the snow and ice on themselves. Dont have anything on my 2500HD, no issues yet

    Yes I run them. Love them. I would get hard plastic ones, the rubber molds after a while when the wind hits it. Keep them a good 6 to 8" off the ground incase you hit a curb backing up like I did and broke mine off.
