I am considering it as I thought it may help with some of the splash on the fenders.
I'm not sure about how they will look though. I am leaning toward the Husky Mud Guards.
Please share a pic of you have one.
Thanks,

Have the Husky's on the front of my DRW F350 and the OEM Ford flaps on the rear.

I have the Weather Tech flaps and I am happy with them. They definitely help with keeping the crud off of the running boards and truck. Might be hard to see in the pic but it's all I have right now.

I would REALLY like something to keep mud off the (diesel) exhaust. The Huskies look too short to do that, anyone have experience with that?

No mud flaps for me. Just one more thing to get torn off when off road. I have a set of Rock Tamers that I install when towing the RV.

2009kr is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have the Gatorbacks. One look at the front of my fifth wheel after towing on wet roads convinced me to get rear flaps. The junk front flaps that came on my F450 were torn (and I don't go off road), so I got Gatorbacks for the front as well.

I always run mudflaps on my trucks, usually weather tech but I like the gator backs.

In my opinion, the two best flaps on the market are Gatorback and Duraflap. Both come at a higher price than Husky/Ford/Weathertech. The Gatorbacks are my favorite, and tend to be the most stylish.

Wrong brand of truck for you guys I realize, but here's what the Gatorbacks look like on my current rig - matching front and rear.

I wonder how many windshields you have unknowingly taken out by not having flaps on. Where I live they are required by law for that very reason. I have used Gatorbacks on my last few trucks and really like them.
