    This is hilarious. Supposed to be an upgrade that you wait months for a piece of rubber. Yet the OE will last forever never being maintained, no washing, no special lubricant or cleaner. Sitting for months and go 10 + years never an issue.

    Steveo you almost lost me at “OE will last forever…” but that part about “never being maintained, no washing, no special lubricant or cleaner. Sitting for months….” is why your OEM splash guards are disintegrating and likely why you’re searching for an upgrade.

    Think of it as powder coat for your splash guards. Does bare metal last forever? Everything on your truck requires some level of protection /maintenance even a piece of rUbBEr

    Ok. Forever maybe not. But I assure from someone who has had several Toyota trucks with more than 400k miles and 10yrs ea. Never replaced or lost a single OE splash guard all still attached with the factory clip and all they got was washed with a wand at the car wash. But yes maybe forever was a stretch.

    Starting now!
    I'm in 2.5 months now and nothing. No communication other than a few texts a few weeks ago. Asked to get my money back. Partial refund pending then gone. This has all the marks of a scam at this point. I'm sure the product is great but the communication and time wait is ridiculous.

    NOT holding up well at all!
    Mine are doing the same thing. All my mounting holes are tearing too.
    3 years later these are splitting and the area where they connect with the holes are getting torn.
    Going to have to look a different direction for new ones.
    Driver’s side is falling off.
    My truck is garaged all the time.

    No issues with mine :notsure:

    Had mine on for 5 years right when he launched these I believe, so it was the first batch. Even removed them quite a bit of times to reach somewhere. My truck isn’t always garaged.

    I threw on some ARK splash guards and they've been fine. Gear Tech is delusional thinking 7 months of exposure to the elements warranted them to literally disintegrate. But I'm over it... maybe it was a bad batch of whatever rubber they were using.

    Link? For those and how much?
    If others are having the same issue and 3 years apart it's the material
