Splash guard,mud flap

Anyone run the Ford splash guards? How well do they stop crap from getting all over your truck. Here are the ones Im talking about? Not sure what is meant by "with wheel lip molding" If anyone has pics of their truck with these I would appreciate it.

I dont have the ford flaps but I do have the husky flaps. They are basically identical to the fords, i've compared them back to back with my brothers oem flaps and there only subtle differances. They do stop 90% of the crap hitting the body. Before the flaps i noticed some rock chips in the rocker panels, since the install there has not been any more chips added. And I dont hear the rocks getting kicked up into the body anymore too. You would want the flaps designed for the wheel lip moldings since you have the factory fender flares on your truck. Sorry I dont have any pictures.

Thanks for the info, so the ones that are not made for trucks with factory fender flares are basically just a flat peice of rubber right? I think I would prefer the look of those to the ones that are molded to the body.

The husky/oem mud flaps work well and arent to expensive. I just wish husky still made them in Tan like they used to, because the black ones would look like hell on my truck with the tan fender flares.

I know it's an expense, but you can always paint them. AlaskanX on another forum painted his to match his X. Don't know the cost, but shouldn't be that much I wouldn't think.

I debated buying them and painting them but was worried about how well they would look after a month or so on my truck considering I live on a gravel road and work on gravel roads... I figured they would chip really bad if they were painted, and then look like hell.
