Wouldn't water go into the drain and frame rail when running on a wet highway? Mud clog the drain?

I think the reason they made it drain into the frame rail was to keep it from getting plugged.

doubt it, its not in the path of water and mud that is being flung from the tire. then again, the amount of water and mud that we deal with out here is a LOT less than others see around the country. i suppose if you wanted to get really fancy, id bet there is a preformed hose piece somewhere out there that would make it possible to come out into the fender and then point down for further protection and one could seal up the hole around the hose with silicone or something to keep the frame rail dry
