Default Need a rear mudflap

Hello y'all

A few days ago my nearly worn out OEM mudflap came loose drug for a mile or two and dang near totally deteriorated.

Anybody know where I can get a replacement?

I considered one of those "hula skirts" but decided against it.

There are some ads of firms selling mudflaps in the FMCA mag but I don't receive it anymore

Thanks y'all!&

Thanks John for the suggestion but I don't believe I have ever seen anything like the rear mudflap Wanderlodge put on the coaches on a school bus.

I take the flaps off and send then to the landfill,i do know some guys just love them,but i think they sling stuff onto my toad.
My LXI has no bumper flaps and no flaps behind the tires.
My jeep looks very nice too!

I still run with the "Bluebird" flap behind the rear tires but removed the long one under the bumper, did the same on my FC when I had it...doesn't seem to do much just hanging back there.

Glad to hear Randy doesn't run one. Mine was kinda cheap looking. Black heavy duty rubber with a cheap looking corrugated piece of aluminum across the bottom. I have the Bluebird flaps behind the rear wheels and they look good and now one can see the white lue it'd na
E printed there on. Only reason I wanted a replacement mudflap across the bottom of the rear number was to keep rocks and other debris from hitting my new Ford F 150.

I agree my coach looks better than the "thing" that hung in the rear.

Also agree- I used to find pebbles laying on the wipers when I had a long "ultra-guard" flap hanging on the bumper. Ever since removing it, I never see any up there.
