I voted rubber for the "flex" it would have, but I wanted to vote neither but didn't see that option.

..there's not a vote option for "no mud flaps"... that would have been mine. I know in some places it's the law...

those "flexible" rubber ones arent that much better

they came on the 1st gens...and they still get ripped off with almost as much frequency as the 2nd gen plastic ones

id go with no flaps if you can

If you have a lift and big tires and you ride sleds you can cut up an old track, nothing says sledneck like 2in paddle track mud flaps on your lifted truck...but seeing as how you live in NC you probably don't ride, in fact, you probly don't know what a "sled" is (snowmobile)

I'd much rather have rubber mud flaps, but like tacomaman said, they're just not out there.

Anybody think these would work?

Mud Flaps

I voted plastic mud flaps because 3 of my original rubber mud flaps have fallen off of my '06 PreRunner. I thought maybe plastic would hold up longer.
Any suggestions?

You had rubber mud flaps on your truck? Where'd you get them?

i just ordered these, i will cut them to fit, same shape as our plastic ones, and hopefully they wont need weights or anything
If you have a camera and the patience, you could add the step-by-step the the cheap/free mods thread. It'd also be nice to see the finished product.

Good luck!

The rubber ones on my 86 4Runner were bombproof. Never ripped, never tore. Sure wish they still made them like that. I don't like the plastic ones, but here in Colorado with all the sand and grit and gravel they put down in Winter, mudflaps are for everyone's protection ... including your own truck. So I don't dare take them off.
