    Ugh.. So I got pulled over today :mad: because I don't have mudflaps and my tires stick out too far from the end of my fender flares. So I was thinking about getting a set of Jungle Fender Flares but I wasnt sure if I could use just any old mudflaps with them. Advice/Info anyone?

    looks like those should work with the stock mudflaps.........even if you needed to trim them a bit, but i doubt you'd even have to trim them with those flares. go for it man!

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I think it's more prevalent on lifted trucks with huge wheels. Some trucks don't even come from the factory with mudflaps. :confused:

    That's a good find on those flares and a hell of lot cheaper than bushwacker flares! The law is there for rocks flying out of the tire tread and cracking other peoples windshields. I'm a cop in Arkansas and we have that law too but I don't enforce it cause it makes our trucks look like crap with huge mudflaps! LOL BTW, your truck looks awsome too!

    Yea, Utah law enforcement seems to be kinda hard on people with lifted trucks. I'm probably just gonna get some plain black plastic mudflaps and skip getting bigger flares unless I get pulled over a second time. I like my tires sticking out! But I do need some sort of guard, my tires are pretty big.. Hehe..

    I'm sure some stock mudflaps would do the trick and keep the cops off your ass. Plus that wouldn't look to bad IMO, and save ya some rock chips in your paint as well!
