HELP!! Need Mud Flaps.... UHG!!

I knew it would happen, it was only a matter of time. I need mud flaps! Yes, it is a fix-it ticket. I am running 37X14.5 MTR's with no mud flaps. Any suggestions?

Ya, I saw the Teraflex flaps, I also see Warrior Products makes something similar. Any reviews from those that used either?

Husky Liner makes some as well. Pretty affordable too. They're not the removable type.

As far as the Warrior Products ones, I don't know of anyone running them personally, but it's a universal application. Gen Right makes as set of removable as well.

I'm planning to do Teraflex so I can remove it for the trail. It's amazing how some cops has nothing better to do then pick on not having mud flaps! Last time I got pulled over I just let the dude give me a speech and then he let me go without a ticket

Big tires can.pick up big shit.

That's why all big rigs have to have them.
Essentially an MT tire could pick up a 1 1/2 " rock destroy a windshield fairly easily.
even wit mudflats on our dump trucks, we stil get the occasional broken windshield claim.

Is there a size that usually brings the law down? What 37s? 40s? 35s? An officer in a bad mood. I suppose there is a mudflap law in each state. What if you are in a state other than your own?

Its always up to the officer .. that bein said, any lifted truck that the tire is visible from behind could be under violation..
obviously the higher you are, the more your tires stick.out, the more you're gonna get messed with.

I have the TeraFlex mud flaps. I like 'em and they work well.

I utilized the factory rear bumper bolts to attach them. Then the only drilling was to make the 2 of the 4 holes in the TF brack bigger. Bolted right up, easy as can be.

You can see the bracket attachment in the lower right of this pic:


Here is what thier kit looks like:

Although, this pic does not show an additional bar/plate that mounts to the outside of the flap. Which then sandwhiches the rubber. Be sure the kit has that part if ya order these.

I went with the TeraFlex mud flaps. It was kinda funny when I went into the police station to report I had fix the problem. The officer that was called out to assist me was funny. I handed him the ticket and he seemed very frustrated, he mentioned that they has a number of fixit tickets coming in. As we were walking to my jeep we had to walk past a lifted TJ. As we approached the TJ he looked at me and said, "I thought you fixed it?". Ya, the TJ had no mud flaps. We both laughed and continued on. When the officer saw my jeep with the mud flaps, he made a comment on how mud flaps look dump on a lifted jeep.

Not a fan of mud flaps but if you just have to have them these are the cleanest looking ones I've seen

Here in Idaho the law is 20 inches off the ground for personal vehicles and 10 inches on commercial. Allmost all HD pickups are illegal. Luckily most cops don't enforce mudflap laws. My Jeep with 6 inches and 39.5s would be screwed if they did.
