Need some mud flaps.

I need some mud flaps that are bigger and wider then the stock ones my truck came with to stop all the rocks from jumping up and chiping my paint all up. I have been looking at pro flaps 12" fronts and 14" rears, anyone here use pro flaps and got some input on them or any other better brands out there?

Not sure if these are what you are looking for. Check out the web site link. I picked up a set for my F350 and have been happy with them.

I've been looking into the possibility of getting mudflaps too. I've got the same issue, my Bridgestone Duellers love to pick up the little pebbles in my driveway. I've thought about getting new stone put down, but figured this way would be cheaper. I'm not one that would jump on something like this quickly, it seems like one of those things that lessen the value of a truck, but seeing the alternative, I'd rather have mudflaps than a crap load of scratches. I've thought about getting the Ford mudflaps from the dealer, they're a decent price, and I've got a couple other small maintenance things to do there. Are there any opinions on the Ford ones?
Thanks in advance.

Has anyone else noticed on their trucks...not sure if this is right or not. On my 06 F250, inside the wheelwell, there is only a plastic insert that is to the rear (protects the muffler and undercarriage from thrown up stuff) and none on the front? I look at the front, it's got the holes to put it on, but not there. All of the older super duty's I look at have the front flap, too. It appears the same piece flipped around would work on the front?

Hey 350stroker thanks for the link thats exactly what im looking for. Were they easy to install or any suprise problems with installing them or was it pretty basic?

BigGreen I have those tires to, they seam like a pretty good tire but hold those little rocks like crazy. Every time I drive into town, get out and look at the tires and there still holding rocks in them no matter how long I have been on the pavment. I to am not a big fan of big mud flaps but it just kills me looking down in the rear corner seeing that big paint chip...not a little nick....but a huge chip in the paint.

Speaking of that chip, dose anyone know if a body shop would be able to repaint just the lower corner of the bed right behind the wheel, its two tone paint, or would they have to redo the whole thing?

Hey Jorkon, The flaps are really easy to install. No big surprises. They come with all the necessary hardware and detailed instructions. I have been very impressed with the quality and durability of them.

I am a auto painter by trade and any decent body shop should be able to paint the area behind your wheel where the rock chip is. They would not need to paint the whole side, just the lower color behind the wheel. It would be a simple job to do.

Hope this helps
