That depends, Rally Armor makes several types of mud flaps, and not all of them are heavy urethane.

Flapatax are all heavy urethane (3/16" thick), so the material is comparable to the expensive Rally Armor (I think). This is because I first checked Rally Armors site but they don't specify the thickness of their urethane flaps (or I could not find it, for the $150 version).

Rally Armor does also sell a cheaper version (without mounting hardware I believe) that appear to be much thinner.

I doubt either RallyArmor nor Flapatax makes their own proprietary blend of urethane, but who knows.

PS: Not on the payroll of flapatax, I bought them off ebay, worked with the vendor (Pumpkyn) to get the right hardware, he marked them where he thought they would need to be drilled, I drilled and installed them, and told him that they fit, so now he can sell them to others. Very pleased with the process and the price, partly because having the Rally Armor logo on the flap means squat to me.
