Oem mud flaps

Which OEM

Oem mud flaps

Postby SwampFox [OP] » Jan 27 2012, 10:53pm

I have a 2008 Extended cab and want OEM mud flaps. Searched the forum but couldn't find the answer.

I have seen two different OEM mud flaps, the flat ones with a contour and an outlined white logo, and the molded in style with the gold logo on the rear flaps.
Does anyone have an opinion of the different flaps? Any problem with the flat style? Paint rubbing on the molded in style?
Big difference in pricing between the two.
Thanks from a newbie here. 1st post.

I'm not a fan of the look of the flat ones, and I've seen some instances where dirt and salt get trapped against the paint in the molded ones, causing it to scratch or rust. I guess where you're at you might not have to worry about the salt though.

Welcome to the site! I have the molded flaps on my truck. I like em and they keep a lot of crap off the truck. They shouldnt scratch the truck at all because where they "mold" around the bed and front fender there is a rubber seal that goes around it. I paid about 110 for front and rear through my local dealer. They are a hudge PITA to put on. Worth it in the long run.... Or you can get the weathertech mudguards that require no drilling. I have heard good things about them.

I haven't seen the ones with the rubber seals.. It's been a while since i've looked at them. Maybe I should check those out because I really like the look of the molded ones. Thanks for correcting me on that happyhourhero!

I got the OEM molded mud gaurds too. Best part about them is I don't have tire dressing all over the side of my car after a wash. This is a pic 3 days after my car wash :)

Hey no problem...I was going to take a pic of them for you all of the rubber seal but the post above mine shows the seal pretty good.

You would not believe me, but two weeks ago I went to a garage sale, and found a full set of the GMC moulded splash guards, which were black with the red GMC logo on the rear guards. The guy selling them said his son had just bought a 2011 new GMC Sierra, and drove it home and removed the guards, and chrome steps in order to put a 6" lift on the truck. Oh the price was $8.00
for the full set missing screws (dang it). Looks great on my Black 2009 GMC Sierra SLT Z71.
