Question about mud flaps/rock guards

I am looking for mud flaps/rock guards that easily attach to the receiver hitch. I do not want to have to start any drilling if I can get by without it.
What is the best kind to get?

thanks, Leo

I just ordered a Kargard II through a dealer from Blue Ox.

Have you seen that application yet?

Have you looked at systems like Protect-a-Tow? Much easier to setup and take down. Stores in a bage about 10 inches in diameter and about 24 inches long.

I have a Protect-a-tow and like it. Easy to attach and it really protects my Toad. However it does require drilling to install.

Lots of posts about folks worrying about chips on their toads, and protect a tow and full width mud flaps (et al). Is it just "bling"?

2012 Wrangler. 28K miles on the odometer, another 21K as a toad. 2 chips from off-road. From being a toad, none. Just standard mud flaps.

According to DuraFlap, "For the most part the rear mud flap simply adds a little bit more protection."

I have confidence that the standard flaps behind my dualies are doing a great job and that a full-width rear flap or anything else is not required on my rig.
