^New idea for bedside vinyl decal.

I got a set of flaps from RenoTacoma, but they don't clear my front tires, so I cannibalized the material.

If I had to do it over again, I'd get polyurethane flap material from RallyArmor. Expensive but durable: http://www.rallyarmor.com/store/univ...0_116_168.html

If you want the flat style polyethylene, or want something wide and long enough to fully protect, just go with the DuraFlap #2 style. They will fit both front and rear. If you have the mud flap bracket from Toyota, they can make a mudflap to fit that also.

I may need to pick up a set or at least the fronts.
Would like to see them on a truck.
I'm sick of the front factory drag over everything and it is cut or replace.
I can replace and then sell the factory off.....

To be clear, I wouldn't mount the Rallyarmor flaps directly to the truck. I'd use the material the same way as my current flaps. Qty (3) #4-40 stainless steel socket head cap screws and locknuts.

I'm glad WeatherTech is finally offering Tacoma flaps, and they look much more useful than the OEM crap. They look perfect for road use, but I think the perimeter rib will cause problems in rough terrain. Time will tell.

I'll install these tomorrow. Really. I mean it.

Whatever is used, you'll need to allow for the offset in the wheel well that's molded into the OEM flaps. Without a spacer, I don't think any material will lay flat. I'm going to use pieces of plastic pipe. The OEM fasteners don't use a machine thread. For the fasteners, I think #14 wood screws are approximately the same thread as the OEM fasteners, but I'll check first.

I wish you the best of luck. There's a guy on this forum that sells a kit. Don't know if he still does, but they actually flap, not the hard plastic. I just cut them off and riveted on some flexible flaps. Those OEM's are a practical joke gone bad.

Indeed, they do. MY2013 as well.

Welcome! How are the OEM flaps holding up on your '07?

The Plasticolor flaps are very flexible, and don't have any ribbing molded in. You can easily roll the entire flap into a tube. I thought about cutting all of the lower portion off of the OEM flaps and using the upper part as a mounting plate for the Plasticolor flaps, but I want to give the spacer method a try first. If it works out, I may CL my OEM flaps to a road bound Tacoma owner.

Those look like they might be too short to be any good. How low do the fronts hang?
I took 4" off my fronts before I lifted my Taco and now wish I hadn't taken off so much.
