    08 Taco, 4500 miles and I broke a mud flap.

    Don't ask me how as I have no idea.

    Anyways I went to the dealer and they want $93 freaking dollars for ONE flap.

    Anyone know if there is a reasonable aftermarket alternative.

    Oh, btw, while I was at the parts counter some girl came in and bought a gollon of the pink coolant, $29 !!!!!

    Your best bet is probably ebay or check the for sale section on here. I cut off about 5 inches off of my front mud flaps, to keep them from breaking.

    Thanks, I shall do that but I'm going to check with the dealer on Monday.

    I know previous years had issues with them cracking and were replaced under warranty. Didn't know of this until after I got back from the dealer.

    Someone posted a "fix" thread somewhere around here. You can also pick up a soft rubber flaps and replace the hard stock ones for better results.
