Interest in new aftermarket mud flaps?

Hey all,

I've been looking around for a set of aftermarket mud flaps that have more of a....'rally' (for lack of a better description) look for my truck. I haven't noticed many options as far as this type of flap.

I used to have a set of 'RokBlokz' flaps installed on my Mazdaspeed3, and I LOVED them. Great functionality and look. These are a HARD polyurethane, so they don't flop around in the wind. I sent a message to RokBlokz to see if they would be interested in making a set up for my truck and for their future sales.

I want to know if you guys would also be interested in/or like the look of these flaps. That way if they are unsure of product demand, I could maybe link them this thread and show them it is (or isn't lol) there.

Here is a link to their flaps for the Tacoma, to give you an idea of the product...

Thanks guys!

BTW, I am not affiliated with this company, I just like their product.

For $120, they can keep them. You can make your own out of similar material for way less. Those Toyota guys will buy anything at any price, as evidenced in the truckbed led kit thread.

Anyone can make anything given the right stuff, but it's nice to order and just bolt on. Not everyone wants to source the plastic, cut, screw it up, re-do, make/source brackets if required.

If you're so inclined, making stuff is the best way!!

Thanks for the input.

They look like the generic universal truck mud flaps they sell at pepboys and other auto stores.

FTFY...

I bought some universals from O'Reillys. Sure it required a little thinking to choose where to put the holes in them, but that doesn't exactly require mad fabrication skills or high dollar tools. They're made of some type of stiff plastic with fiber backing for added support. No flapping in the breeze, looks good, and cost me all of $20 for all four. Hell, if you wanted you could get RallyArmor universals for just a little over what I paid...

Ummm. That's the fun of modding. Taking raw material and making it work, not paying some overpriced $120 for some mudflaps.

I have a set of the universal non mspec (black with red lettering) on my red SUV and they work well. I hate these hard plastic factory ones that just accumulate snow and break the moment they touch anything. Rally Armor flaps are soft and bendable and accumulate very little snow before falling off. I'm considering a set of the MSpec ones for the frontier as they are a bit beefier and larger than the others and should suit a truck.

Maybe something along the lines of "doomgloom"?

Checked the Canadian Tire website and a pair can be had from $19.99-$42.99, no shipping/exchange rates/brokerage fees to factor in just 12% tax. So for $45-$100 I can do all 4 and still be way ahead of the game.
