    Anyone out there purchased replacement Toyota mud guards or aftermarket ones? Here's my dilemna: 1st, due to poor design my driver front mud guard broke off some time ago just due to highway speeds (fighting with toyota to replace).

    In the meantime, my wife had my truck for a few days and got hit by someone trying to pull into a parking space, which broke my driver rear mud guard.......My wife also backed into two snow banks and broke off my passenger rear and pass. front mud guards!!!

    Toyota wants like $90+ for one new rear mud guard!!! (insane), however I want to replace with the original 4x4 guards for the rear.

    Anyone purchased shorter aftermarket front guards?

    Please let me know?

    Thanks!

    So we have opinions with and without mud guards. I have the same problem with the front guards on my '06' TRD Offroad Package. I like the look but would like to get something shorter and after market. Anybody know of any after market source?
