Mud flaps

For months now we've been having nothing but rain so needless to say any gravel or dirt roads are nothing but mud and pot holes including my 1200 foot driveway. I didn't realize how bad things were until I opened my door the other day and saw the mess inside.

Would mud flaps stop this sort of mess from occurring? If so what brand would be recommended to work the best?

Thanks!

I had to take mine off, because they wouldn't fit with the fender flares. So i have the same problem you do. Just driving around town, dirt from the road just goes right onto my rocker panels and steps.

Mud flaps will help, but you're still going to get some dirt.

Why not gravel your 1200 foot driveway? Gravel is cheap. 3/4 minus is only like 20-30 bucks a yard.

Agreed - except the cheap part. Do the math on a 1200' driveway...it adds up quick!

Actually my driveway is gravel. Costs $330 for a 22 ton truck to spread a 2" thick load down the full length. I've done that several times over the years. The problem is last year we had 68 inches of rain which was about 25 inches above normal. So far this year it hasn't stopped raining. Even when I try and grade my driveway it only lasts for about a week or two before it's a total mess again. Until it dries out to where I can grade it smooth there's no reason to even consider a load of gravel. It's going to take some real serious road work to get it back to what it was previously

That's what prompted me to see if mud flaps would keep most or all of that crap out of between the door and the rocker.

Best you'll find for the 99-03s. they make them for many more as well though.

https://duraflap.com/

Im about to order some since i'll be barrowing a camp trailer and don't want to cause any unnecessary road damage etc. couple folks been running them for YEARS and they hold up great plus no dill reduces rust if you have salt/de icing fluid in winter times.

Yeah they salt the roads here in central Kentucky

I had been zeroing in on Husky flaps because they seemed a little longer than others that I found although I had't seen the Dura Flap link before. The Dura Flaps are definitely pricey compared to the competition. My F250 has 285 tires so finding mud flaps that are wide enough is also important.

Thanks!

Seems like those folks out in Oregon make some fine products for our trucks; Riffraff, DuraFlap, etc.

I put these Weathertech flaps on my F250, they seem to keep the bright white truck a lot cleaner overall, and look OEM. they also keep my trailer a lot cleaner.
