    Hi All,

    Just drove my brand new 2010 Tacoma access SR5 home today and life is good. The purchase was a good experience and so far so good except that I see that a white truck that lives on a muddy dirt road means I need some front mud flaps. Could anyone save me some time and give me a hint as to what to buy as far as easy installation and good performance goes?

    Best to all,
    Zdog

    Would it be possible to get some mud flaps for the 6 lug trucks and just trim them so they don't drag on the ground?
    Oh and welcome!

    The 5-lugs don't have fender flares like the 6-lugs and the flaps won't fit :eek:

    Ah, yes I forgot about that. I guess he could just get some generic flaps and cut them to fit.

    Thanks folks,

    Sounds like its time hit the auto parts stores. I was hoping someone has been through this before.
