Mud flap recommendations

We have a 2015 RAM Dually, pulling a 2015 36FBTS Pinnacle. Notice all the road grime getting on the Pinnacle. We were wondering about purchasing some mud flaps and see that there are lots of different options. Would like opinions from the experts on this forum. We want it functional and don't want to have anything that has to be removed if it takes a lot of effort. Suggestions???

I have a set that was home made from a rubber mat and a couple pieces of 2 inch angle iron. They slide in the end of my bumper hitch, one on each side.

Great idea! Wish I had thought of that.

Very inventive. We are challenged screwing in lightbulbs. We will purchase mud flaps and pay for installation.

I too went with the 'standard' duraflaps. I don't think they're as sexy as factory, nor cheap, but they are quality and do stop the mud/slop for me (F250).

I just checked, Front $80 / Rear $85 / S&H (guesstimated) at $20.

It took me about an hour to install them.

I put a less expensive pair front and back in my truck when it was new. You can see them in front of in the pictures posted yesterday and they did ok but I was looking for something bigger to stop rocks.

The Duraflap link looks like they would do the job.

Besides mud flaps on the wheel wells, I also use an Ultra Guard Mud Flap attached to the back of the truck.

I've used this on the past 2 trucks. On the current truck I have it mounted and attached via the truck receiver.

That was the idea on my home made ones. Keeping rocks and road debris from dinging or damaging the fifth wheel.
