Which mud flaps?

I have a 2014 Ram 3500 crew cab dually Longhorn I plan to use to tow a 5th wheel. I want to add mud flaps. The front mud flaps come in three shapes (moon, square and specially cut). Any thoughts on which would be best? The rear mud flaps will be rectangles 21 x 24.

Diesel with the Aisin tranny. Also any idea if there will be a performance chip for better economy for the 2014 Cummins?

No help as to the mud flaps, but I wouldn't "chip" or "program" a new truck and risk a future warranty denial. I know lots of folks do, but I look at it like this, I bought the truck to tow so I know it will not get the greatest fuel economy. But it does tow heavy things very easily set up the way it is from the factory. With automakers trying to pinch every penny these days, they can and will deny warranties on new 'programmed' trucks. All 3 of the Big 3 are doing this. Believe me, I am a hot rodder at heart and all of my other vehicles are modified but now it's just not worth it to risk a warranty on these expensive engines and trannys these days. Now, if it is out of warranty, LOOK OUT!

Look at Duraflap.com for some good quality flaps.

And you shouldn't need any help towing with that truck--suggest you stay away from chips/tuners.

I bought these from Cabelas and they work very well and are adjustable.

I second the Duraflaps. These were really easy and quick to install.

The gains in chipping are not worth the loss of your warranty. No one chips anymore, they use tuners. And tuners aren't available any more since the feds cracked down on them.
Only way to increase your mpgs is to do a delete of the DPF and EGR, that eliminates regens. No one make any delete parts for the 2013-2014 Ram 6.7. And you need a 'race' tuner that will delete the codes that will show up after the delete. Last year of truck they made all that stuff for was 2012.

Here at DuraFlap we have a drill-less installation for your truck. You will not have to drill any holes in your truck to install them, and they will hang straight. It can't get any easier.

I can't believe it. This post has been around since the 16th, and nobody has recommended these:



Sorry. I couldn't help myself.
