We recently bought a Jeep to flat tow behind our rig.  I was concerned about debris flying up from the truck and hitting the Jeep.  I installed regular sized mud flaps on the truck but found them inadequate.

I noticed there was room behind the Fox Landing to install a set of semi truck mud flaps.  The mud flaps are 24-inches by 24-inches inches.

Some trimming was required, which is not easy because of the toughness of the material.  I used a razor blade box knife and a hacksaw.  I also installed chrome anti-sail weights.  With cardboard from an old box, I mocked up where and how to mount the mud flaps.  The mud flaps need to be a few inches above the ground.  They also come in 24-inches wide by 36-inches long.

On a recent trip in northern Nevada, we drove through swarms of locusts on the road.  The road was red with squished bugs.  At our next stop, I got out to inspect the carnage.  Things were pretty messy, but the front of the Jeep was spared most of it.

I got the mud flaps and anti-sail weights from Raney’s (raneystruckparts.com).  The mud flaps were $15 each and the weights were $7.50 each.  The shipping and handling was about $35.  The stainless steel bolts, washers, and nuts were purchased at Lowe’s for about $30.

It took me three hours to complete this modification and cost me $110.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
