    Just installed the front husky mud guards on my stock 2013 tacoma. Looks awesome and are about 4 inches shorter. I would recommend if you want more clearance but still want some protection!20170317_202839.jpg 20170317_204820.jpg20170317_204753.jpg

    They look great. Going to get some RokBlokz flaps though. Prefer the edgier look.

    Yea I like the look of the RokBlokz. Especially if you off road. Just couldn't get myself to spend the money for them. Even though I'm sure they're worth it!

    I bought the husky flaps for my truck only to return a couple days later. Damn OEM ones rubbed a nice line in my color-matched flares and the husky flaps didn't cover it up enough to my liking... Looks good on your truck tho!

    This was the very first mod I did on my 2014 when bought new. The front flaps are way too long.

    I bought those because I don't have any front flaps. I ordered both them and the push clips from Amazon. When I got them, I discovered I was missing some hardware. I sent an email to Husky and telling them what I was missing and they sent me some metal screws that I was missing. Few days later I got the hardware and went back to install them. I did discover that the OE flaps that used to be on there had rubbed a spot on the paint. The Huskys came with protective plastic cards to keep that from happening. Loved the fore thought in those.

    Yea, my oem mud flaps had rubbed on the lower part of the flare. But the huskys covered it up. I'm happy with them!

    I replaced my fronts with Husky as well. I've had them a little over a year now and I'm happy with them. I also had the paint rubs from the originals and the Husky's covered it up nicely. I kept the OEM rear mud guards though.

    I did the same swap. I like the look over OEM and didn't bother putting on the protective film as the paint was already rubbed by the OEM flap.
    What sized BFGs are you running? Any rub with the new flaps?
    Was looking to change the wheels, but thinking of running the stock wheels with those tires instead.

    With the Husky fronts, do they use all the OEM mounting holes or does one need to drill new holes.....if new holes, what has to be drilled?
    Thanks, Mike

    I run BFG MUD 265/70 x 17
    Absolutely no rubbing on flaps, even with heavy mud.
    No need to drill new holes, and the Kusky come with complete new screws

    i have the husky fronts, been on for three years, no complaints. I didnt put on the clear protective film, it was cold out when i did it and just didnt work out. Looks fine though.
