Well, with the talk of mudflaps on this thread, I decided to buy a set from my dealer and I put them on tonight. I know that most people don't think they go with a Wrangler, but I kind of like them and I hope it will help keep the winter slop down a bit....They were easy to put on and did have to drill a few holes, but it was very easy and instructions were very good and they fit nice. I am happy with them..

I've been thinking about a set myself. I don't mind the JK being dirty if I've been through the mud with it, but just regular day to day driving, it's impossible to keep clean, especially since it's black. The width of my tires also has a lot to do with it too I suppose. I'm contemplating mud flaps, wider fenders, or both. My tires are 12.5" wide, so they stick out some, but not a ridiculous amount.

Where did you get these? They look pretty custom, did you have to fab some stuff?

I put just the fronts on after a trip up to the mountains and my wife had to ask me to open her door for her because there was about 5 pounds of mud dripping off of the door handles. They also keep the majority of the mud off of the rear fenders so people can get in to he back seat and not have to drag their butts across the mud.

I think they are a great investment.

I was hesitant to put mud flaps on (damage off roading) but after driving in the rain last week with the doors off (and lots of snow today, doors on) I saw that something had to be done to save some dirty seats and interior.

I bought some simple flat car mud flaps from Canadian Tire.

I set them so the bottom of the mud guard was no lower than the rock rail bottom. Also these slipped easily under the stock interior wheel well plastic and only required three screws to install. I did place one screw through the flap and interior wheel well plastic and into the plastic cap on the end of the rock rail.

Then I used some rubber floor mat material and slipped put this over the interior wheel well plastic (to help reduce cracking and holes in factory wheel well). I let this rubber matting hang down 3.5" below the mud flap. This was long enough to keep the road spray down, and not long enough to get caught up on the wheel when backing up over obstacles. I used three screws to secure the rubber mating.

Can't say it won't get ripped off but chances are slim I think. I haven't done any off-roading yet, only had it 1 week so far.

I am thinking about removing the black steps and mud flaps when I do my 2.5" BL and 35s to accentuate the lift. Hmmm ... decisions, decisions

Riding a motorcycle is the only time in my existence when I can completely lose myself only to find myself.

It's not the destination.........

It's the ride!

2009 Jeep Sahara w/front & rear Mopar molded splashguards. They're more effective up front where they keep my side bars from loading up with slush and ice.

Husky Front Custom Molded Mud Guards - Quadratec
I put The Mopar mudflaps on my 2009 JK Rubicon Unlimited shortly after buying it last spring thinking that they would help keep the mud and gravel off my Jeep, but more importantly would help keep that stuff off my fiberglass driftboat, which I tow here in Montana much of the summer.

While the mudflaps must have helped some, I still got lots of gravel thrown all over my lower rear door hinges and rear fender flares - both look like crap after a couple hundred miles of slow drivng on gravel roads.

If I were to do it over, I would consider putting something like the Sahara-type running boards (or better yet, a steel rock guard that extends like the Sahara running boards) on my Jeep from the start, in addition to the mudflaps.

Belatedly, I put some 3M protective film on my door hinges, but the gravel just eats it up. I'm sure that the Goodyear mud tires on the Rubicon don't help the situation.
