    have a 2006 TRD sport with no mud flaps on it. I don't love the stock flaps, and the fact that they're hard plastic. I don't think I want hard plastic ones (even if they're trimmed off). looking for some softer ones. Just give me your opinions!

    What are thoughts on chaining flaps up, non-black mud flaps, or just buying rubber and doing it yourself, etc.

    I have the Rokblokz and I love them. Flexible but not flappy.

    I looked at the weathertechs but they looked stiff as well. I think I like the look of softer flaps, and not having to worry about catching them on anything. Those rally armour look cool but i think they only make them for cars?

    I was reading that the rokblokz were actually more stiff than OEM, just short so less likely to catch them on things? never actually seen them though so I can't say

    Some people tie up there flaps so that they don't get caught offroading (like that 4runner pic up there) is that super douchey or no?

    They (RokBlokz) are most definitely not stiffer than OEM. They are stiff enough to not flap in the wind at 60mph, but soft enough to bend easily with your hands.

    Ya those actually look pretty good. How stiff are they? Also those are mounted behind the wheel well, does that just help with potential rubbing?

    if you go to their site, these are the oversize tire flaps, they have brackets for the fronts that mount behind the fender. Like others have said they are stiff enough to offroad with and not loose enough like oem that they flap in the wind. i dont rub btw and i have chopped bm. same material to rally armor if you had them before.
