Mud and Rock Guards

Rubicon 4 door - 4000 miles

I am on mud, gravel or deep snow everyday. Rubi has been great. But get huge buildup of mud all over doors and handles.

Is there a bolt on which will help reduce mud buildup?

Someone might make larger fender flairs that would stop some of that mud before it hits the doors.

the mud will still fly up, unless you get some rock sliders that stick out further and block the fly path.

Mopar makes a mud guard for the JK somebody posted this awhile back. They don't look too bad but you will give up some ground clearance I think. I have noticed the same problem with mud and snow. The door handles get sloppy and ice up where they are tough to open. I will probably get something this summer.

I am thinking about the Mopar tubular side step. It looks like it might stop most of the problem. It looks like it sticks out about 4" from the side of the Jeep and goes from front to rear fender. For some reason I can not drive around a Mud puddle, so I always have the splash up the side and in the door handle.

I think I have seen it cheaper, but I don't remember where.

I put the Jeep "mud guards' on mine a while ago. They work well and are not that bad looking. I do not do heavy off roading and I think they would not last long if I did. I am looking for a step that looks/works well with the mud flaps. It is a little difficult for my wife to get in and out. I think with the step the mud issue on the back fender that you cannot get in and out of the back seat with out getting muddy will be fixed.

I just installed these this morning.... they look great!!! I don't know if they will help with your mud problem. If it seems to help on mine, I'll post.
