    Does anybody know of any Front Mud flaps/guards that will fit a 2010 Base Access Cab 2WD? Non- Prerunner. I know the flaps for a 4WD are everywhere, but I can only find ill fitting, generic, drill your own holes, front flaps from people like Huskey. Has anybody found any decent ones that bolt on rather easy? I don't mind a little alterations but I want them to look good too...Thanks!

    Unless you have fender flares, you are out of luck.:( Toyota does not even carry them.

    Not many answers I'm afraid. Looks like a pair of generic std flat flaps mounted to same holes in fender that the inner fender is secured to.....will have to be the answer.
    No biggie, just trim flap around the protruding "box" in fender inner.

    $25. No drilling. No paint damage. I got the guards at autozone.

    1" rear drop. Currently sits 34.5" in the front and 35.0" in the rear.
    Good deal. I might have to do that soon.

    AdrenlineJunky,

    Do you have the make and part # of any of the stuff you used to do this ?
    How did you get the old fender well rivets out ? Did you have to destroy them ? Did the fall down into the body on the inside ?
    What is the part # of the replacement push-type rivets you used with the wood screw ? Where did you get them ?
    How did you mark you holes to drill through the mudflaps ?
    What is the make and part # of the mud flaps that you used ?
    Have they held up well ?

    Aftkmktheadache,

    I ended up using roadsport 4754 "b" series flap found on Amazon for $8.99. As for the clips, I used the stock ones on the truck. It's a super tight fit. As for a pattern, i used legal size paper, put it up against the the inside of the fender liner, found each of the clips, and poked a hole through the paper at the center of each. After that, I transferred the pattern over to the flaps then trimmed the flaps to fit around the box. Use a box cutter to cut through the flap with ease.

    Thanks for providing this info.

    However, some time has passed since I first e-mailed you, and in that time I went with Plasticolor 000577R01's. Found the OEM style plugs on ebay from a Chinese seller. I made a cardboard model and used a heat gun, Sears Handi-cuts & tin snips to cut them. I like them because they are flexible, but not too flexible.

    Ah you were asking adrenaline junky. I just stumbled across this post and figured I'd reply since it wasn't replied to for some time. Just trying to help a brother out with my findings and projects I've completed.
