Rubber material for rear rock flap

Folks,
My coach's rear rock gaurd (the blingy kind with chrome branding) has rips in the rubber caused by road gators. All is fine with the rock gaurd EXCEPT the rubber. Any recommendation for sources of sheet rubber in a 12" x 96" form factor?

Chris

You could try your local John Deere dealer or any tractor supply.
My local NAPA has a ton of large mud flap material, but that may be because , it's about the only place in town to pick the stuff up.
Any tire store that does semi tires.

Just some ideas that popped into my head. I don't have any ideas how much a new flap cost, but here a few things I found.

Tractor Supply. Here is a 10 inch by 180 inches belt.
Baler Belting, 2-Ply, 10 in. x 180 in. - Tractor Supply Co.


Ebay has conveyor belt material.

I would start shopping at McMaster Carr, its a nice 'toy' store. Otherwise a local industrial rubber supplier should be able get it for you or perform a web search for skirtboard rubber. Polyurethane, UHMW polyethylene, ABS or flexible PVC maybe suitable materials too. Sadly, the material/size can get pricey.

If you are any where near SE WA try Art Carpenter Surplus in Kennewick. I bought enough cord reinforced belting to make a rock guard 2 mud flap, 4 tire pads, and had some to spare all for $20 (a few yrs ago) He had a lot of it, in different widths.

You might also try your local surplus yards, the belting is used for farm equip., conveyers and other things. The corded kind is a bear to tear.

You may find a rubber & belting supply company near you that can supply the material. I had in mind to make my own rear flap, but after checking the prices with a local belting company I found I could buy on for less!

I went with the UltraGuard!

Thanks for the tips folks. I have to drop by peterson cat today, will ask them for advice, can also hit up my napa. The conveyor belt material above looks to mostly be 0.3" thick, which is pretty thin compared to what is on the rig (although may be tougher). Wonder if the lack of weight would be an issue....
