I'm picking some up tonight for a trailer project...unfortunately, no matter what you do, they look stupid....

IMO, set them up as a receiver mount....1-1/4" small receivers into the frame at the back, flap hangs down from there, easy to remove for trail use.

Most any autodroid store has them in pairs for $15. Just add bracketry.

Also, check your DOT laws regarding flaps and such....you may find something about not required if the vehicle didn't come with it stock, or height issues, etc. Worth investigating before you slap something on there.

Excellent idea.I never evan thought of doing that with the 1 1/4" trailer reciever that would work slick.I new there had to be a way to beat the system.I don't plan on putting ones on there that are huge.Thanks great idea :bow:

Performance Products (performanceproducts.com) used to sell these mud flaps made by a company called Jaos, they are probably the coolest flaps I've ever seen. They have these hook things on them that allow you to secure them up out of the way for 4wheeling. They sell aplications for 80 and 100 series cruisers as well as other newer toyota four bys, but I'm sure they could be installed on almost anything. The big down side to these things are the cost, they're not cheap at all(around $100). :dunno:

You might want to go to a farm supply store and ask for some baler belting. It's cheap and you can make your own brakets to remove it when on the trail.
