    Very interesting. I also need a set that clears my bigger tires and find rokblokz just too expensive.

    Added to my Amazon truck list. Thanks!

    I think stock would be good enough for 265/75/16's

    Look at Plasticolor universal. Works great and very durable

    Nope. They rub with a 2” OME lift with that size tire. Only back ones stay on with that tire

    However I do have aftermarket UCAs and they allow me to turn tighter so that maybe why I rub in the fronts

    really...? They are mud flaps. They are black.. and pretty much the same as the blokz. But to each there own. Just looking for some decent flaps so that my KO2's wont throw rocks all over my truck.

    Trust me. I just measured against the truck and drilled them to fit .

    I used screws instead of the clips as well .Haven't had any issues in 5 years

    Do you think they would work with my 285/70/17 tires? Are they meant to provide clearance when installed?

    I finally decided on these https://rekgen.com/collections/rally-edition/products/gen3-tacoma-mud-flaps-1 They had a Memorial Day weekend sale and they were $71.96 total shipped to my house. I read a lot of reviews and decided the OEMs and others of that style were too stiff and tend to crack or break. That is what put me over the top on these. I imagine they will have another sale on for July 4th.

    I got the R3s, they work great. If you go on their website they have a lot of options to pick from.

    I also purchased these during the Memorial Day sale!!! I was actually looking at them for awhile and when the sale popped up I grabbed them.

    I did a bunch of research on mud flaps as well. I don't really like the look of the OEM, they are hard plastic, and don't seem to have very good coverage.

    Universal...nah its a new truck I want a specifically made product.

    RokBlokzs I feel like you are paying for a name, not worth it to me at the price point they are asking.

    Mine won't be here until the 6th of June, but with a 15 to 30 minute install I will be putting them on that same afternoon. Pretty stoked about the price and them keeping all of that debris off the sides of my truck.

    I was quoted the same timeframe for delivery; I thought it was a mistake. I hope they arrive for both of us sooner then expected!
