ZR2 molded mudflaps

The GM molded mudflaps are not even close to be able to mount them onto the fender flares. What are you guys using on the rear?

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

well for me its not that im afraid to get it dirty... im just broke and right now my truck is the only vehicle me and my wife have. so i cant afford to go out and play like i use to and risk breaking something. and some people i guess you can say "posers" like the looks of ZR2's and Highriders but dont use em for playin.

When I was 15 I wanted a ZR2 because I thought they looked cool and bad@$$ but now I know the capabilities of my truck and use my truck for work and huntin, fishin, haulin, and towin.

just my .02

Probably to prevent the paint from getting blasted off and rust.

Im like you. Im a teacher, my wife is a teacher, and we just had our first child in Aug. so I dont have the money to fix stuff that breaks when playing, so I dont play in my truck. But, I do use it offroad, and she does get dirty. Theres lots of other reasons to buy an ORV other than as a toy. I just dont get the whole "keeep it clean" madness. Mud Happens.

I can see that I guess. Us southern guys take our salt free winters for granted. The only guys that see salt down here live on the coast, and no amount of mud flaps will stop that rust. Other than salted roads, I still dont see why people put mud flaps on 4x4s. But hey, Who am I to say what someone else can put on their rig. I guess I just like to give people greif.

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

I use my truck off road too. I was just sayin I dont go and just play in the mud. I use my truck for haulin at work and around the house and for huntin and fishin. I use my truck for what trucks are meant to be used for. I like my truck clean but if it gets dirty ehhh so what it gets dirty... I wash my truck maybe once every 2 weeks and detail it about twice a year also or for special occasions. I work construction so half the time its not even worth my time or effort to wash it cause it just gets dirty again in 2 days. but I normally only wash it on fridays or when I have a 3 day weekend.

I dont really see points in mudflaps I had some autozone bought ones on my truck but they flew off drivin down I-40... They keep from rocks bein slung up on my rocker panels but other than that useless. just one more thing to worry about.

but chevynuts check out synergyoffroad they have mudflaps for zr2's on there. and i believe they are made just for the zr2's

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

I take particular pride in the looks of my vehicles. The wife has a Blazer2 and the most time it sees off road is when it gets washed on the grass. It is very time consuming to get all of the road tar off of the side of it so I'm looking at ZR2 specific mudflaps also. For you guys that like to beat the tar out of your vehicles then bitch about them breaking..more power to you..

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

kinda wish my Z had some... my doors have rock chips all the way up to the windows from the front wheels throwing crap up, and my truck bed behind the fender is bare metal from being blasted so badly.

some states require mudflaps for 4x4s for the reason mentioned above.
I know my step-brother was pulled over in CA and given a ticket because his truck didn't have mud flaps.

Wait, do only 4x4's require mudflaps? If so, that's the dumbest thing I've heard since any rear wheel drive vehicle is likely to throw up rocks.

In Washington, mudflaps are required if the bodyline is above the midpoint of the wheel. Usually not a focus item unless you're being stupid or have a bunch of glaring violations. We bought a lifted Z71 from my ex bro-in-law that had a history of DUI. Wife got pulled over and warned about the flaps...or lack of. Trooper was a little surprised it wasn't him. Never did get flaps for it.

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

it goes for cars too if the wheels stick past the fenders.

So those low rider cars with the 14'' off set wheels need flaps.

Like rhotpursuit mentioned I've seen vehicles violating that law, and never get pulled over for it.

alright, thanks for the clarification, I knew it couldn't be just for being a 4x4.

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

Chevynuts,
Does the snow get caught up between the tires and mudflaps? Looks like the clearance is tight. I plan on getting some for my truck so was wondering how they work out for you.

So far ...no snow.. to get caught up. I went hunting yesterday and drove through lots of mud no problem. But check back in awhile some snow coming maybe Thursday. Carl

How much clearance does anyone with the Husky ZR2 molded mudflaps have? I would like to put these on my truck to prevent paint damage from gravel, etc, but I looked at my clearance between the tires and flares and there isn't much there now especially in the front. I have 265x75x15 tires.

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

as much as I hate the looks of mud flaps, I think I'm going to buy some.

The paint down there is so blasted to hell. I plan on painting my flares this summer and I'd be pissed if they went back to looking sandblasted after 1 winter.

Maybe just some home depot flaps, and take them off in summer.

Rubber ones, so I don't have to worry about smashing them bombing through deep snow.

Re: ZR2 molded mudflaps

I was going to get mudflaps for my '02 S10 ZR2 but with the 265x75x15 tires that are on it, it looks like the front tires would hit them when turning hard.

They won't hit with that size tire. Unless you take it off road and flex it real hard while turning.
