    Ok, first let me say: DON'T post if you aren't going to contribute to the topic! I have my reasons of wanting mud flaps and that is that.

    With that said...

    2010 Toyota Tacoma, brand spanking new and want to keep the paint that way. The factory mud flaps look gay and bend at highway speeds.

    I want to replace them and upgrade them with some rubber and slightly wider to protect the sides. I have the TRD Ivan Stewarts and the tires sit outside the fender wells about an inch and sling crap up on the sides.

    Any recommended aftermarket mudflaps? Any that fit without drilling or mods?

    I am going for tasteful NOT over the top or gaughty.

    You might try WeatherTech. People here are trying to get them to make their no drill type for the Tacoma. Perhaps they do now.

    Try oriley auto parts, I bought a set of front & rears there for my Taco look good & perform better than the OE. They are sorta custom fit, you cross refrence a chart and it tells you what generic set fits your truck.

    Check into Powerflow Pro-Fit, but they still may not cover it well enough since your wheels are offset more than stock. You may need to look into Bushwacker flares to get the coverage you need.

    Note that I also have the flinging issue as I have a set of rims that are +25 offset instead of the standard -5. I am running without any flaps and get the dirt/mud/etc. flinging down the sides.

    I bought a set of generics from autozone that work well, I dont recall the name. I had to do a little trimming on them to make them fit, but for $30 it was well worth it vs. the cost of stock flaps.

    Hey there, just wanted to share some information on some splash guards that I am trying out on my truck. They are PowerFlow Pro-Fit Splash Guards and available at JC Whitney for about $35/pair.

    http://www.jcwhitney.com/pro-fit-sp...jcwx?filterid=d2193y2006j1&_requestid=4627122

    Two of my stock ones literally broke off in the cold snowy weather and I used these to replace them. These are guaranteed down to -40 degrees so we will see how they fair this coming winter.

    To mount them I used the existing holes in the fender so I didn't have to drill new holes which was a plus. I just inserted drywall mollies into the holes and then used the screws that came with the splash guard kit.

    Also, I had looked into using WeatherTech since I have their floormats already but they don't have them available for this model. I did put a product request in for them and hope that enough others with follow suite to make them a reality.

    I did the pro-ft #7's on the front, about two inches shorter than stock and they are decent quality. $29 at Pep Boys or $15-$20 online such as ebay. They have a nice "lip" to cover the corner damage the stock ones do. I used three of the same holes and drilled a fourth. I held it up straight (keep the bottom level) and used a punch to locate and then mark the holes. Used black nylon license bolts to secure and used the stock screw on one hole. Holds tight, so no flapping in the wind. Sold the stock one on ebay (they go for up to $75+ on ebay) so came out ahead.

    Did you use the Drywall Mollies on the areas that had the Clips before> I am installing my Model 7's this afternoon to replace the ones I pulled off getting to my riding spot? Thanks!

    I used black nylon bolts with washers on both sides and locking nuts. The bolts are the autozone license plate bolts, separate washers and then they had pack of nuts with the rubber inserts so they lock.

    When I installed the pro-fits on mine, I used the green drywall mollies in the 3 existing holes that are located along the fender flare and the screws that came with the new flaps. Since my existing flaps were broken, I trimmed off the back part of it that attaches to the inner part of the wheel well to give the new flap a mounting point on the inside. So, when I was finished I ended up using 4 screws per flap.

    You can do what I did, and cut down the factory mudflaps for free. Mine don't bend at highway speeds any more. Just a thought
