Make your own Mud Flaps??

2000 Tacoma, Reg Cab, 4x4: Anyone here made your own mud flaps from flat materials like a large Semi mudflap you can get at truck stops? Toyota pricing on these is absolutely ridiculous! I am planning to buy (2) large mudflaps (24"x36") @ $12.50 ea. and make my own......just wondering if anyone had done this already. The fronts do have an offset but a rubber or plastic spacer of some sort can fix this. I did a search but nothing found here.

My Subaru-driving friends used a Semi-truck inner fender wall I believe. They went to a big rig shop and bought them for like 10 bucks and cut them into the correct shape using the template from the Rally Armor website. It's nice, thick rubber too.

Otherwise, heaps of TW members have removed their mudflaps. Just post in the B/S/T thread (since you have already done so in this forum) to see if anybody has their set lying around. My truck didn't come with them (removed by PO), so I bought some for like 20 shipped from a guy on here.
