I used to use these when we towed our boat long distances. They attach to the hitch. When you remove the hitch, the flaps come off as an assembly. Very heavy duty!

Yes, all 4 wheels. Got the Weather Tech, no drilling took about 15-20 mins to install.

Mud Flaps

I have the factory ones. They didn't work on gravel. I sand blasted the frame of the TT when we went up in N.W.T.

I tow a 38' Mobile Suite with my truck

I would not pull it out of my driveway without mud flaps...Your rear tires will shower the front of your towable vehicle with stones...You will have stone chips all over it...

Thank you. Just got it out of storage today. Hopefully this will be a good summer.

Actually you can't have it lifted too far, there are laws for that and headlight height in particular.
But mud flaps have to be between 4" and 12" off the ground, last I checked.

Yes to mud flaps. Cheap to buy and good savings on dirt and damage.
I found a set at Auto zone for $25. They use the existing hardware in the fender. Had them over a year and 25k miles in all conditions.

This is what worries me. I've got the factory ones too, but thinking about something more substantial when heading up to the Yukon.

Maybe the type that hangs off the hitch? It would be a little further back and might catch stones missed by the factory mud flaps.

How close to the ground should it go? You wouldn't have to worry about backing up as it's so far back, so you could go almost all the way to the ground?

Keep them away from the ground to prevent the flaps from moving any dirt up. Flaps create a downward flow of air that deflects the dirt down. Just observe the transports on the road they do it right.

It works best if you get the full size mud flaps in the fender well, and get them extra long in the rear. Place them about 7" off the ground, and they will protect both your trailer, and your truck.
We have many customers that have done trips to Alaska tell us the extra long mud flaps did a great job.
