    I just took delivery of my 2020 Tacoma and it did not come with mud flaps. Should I get some?

    I'm only worried about damaging the paint from rocks or debris. Anyone had an issue?

    Welcome to TW!
    Congrats on a new truck!:cheers:


    The paint is super soft. I have quite a bit of chips already by the rear wheel and on the bottom of the rear fender flares and i have stock mud flaps.

    I would definetily recommend installing mudflaps.

    Good luck man and lets see some photos!

    Yes, get some. In addition to protecting the paint it keeps your truck much cleaner. Enjoy your truck.

    You can get a set of OEM ones. They are about $60 and bolt right on.
    NOTE: If you off-road and worry about hanging one up, you will need to get flexibles ones.

    I put some WeatherTech mud flaps on Front and Rear. $80 for peace of mind as my truck is black. And I can take them off in 30 minutes but I'm not going rock crawling.

    Actually ever since I got zero offset wheels I've been getting mud all over the side of the truck. Anyone recommend some flexible ones that won't break my bank too badly?

    I've found that without the mud flaps the front wheel can throw the road water/salt/sand, etc. up into lower door cracks. It does depend on the door design. But my old GMC Sonoma had the door bottoms early rotting do to this. As Someone said previously, it keeps it cleaner AND keeps the front tires from throwing all the road stuff down the underside of the vehicle.

    Rekgen regular size ones. Very durable, if you go over rocks they will tear off as ANY will if it gets hit right....but I just rebolted them back on minus one screw that tore off and I couldn’t find amongst the rocks.

    Here’s some pics.

    Good luck.

    For truly adequate protection from rock, gravel, mud and other road debris you will also need step tubes or running boards. I finally accepted this fact 35 years ago.
