Default mudflaps

hey there all you fellow scoob fans, I have an 05 lgt and I am looking for some mudflaps. I was looking at rally armor, but I didn't like how they sit 2-3 inches off the road, and I am not willing to lower my car right now. im looking for larger "rooster tail" mudflaps (bigger ones that just barely sit above the road). ive seen them for sti's and wrx's but I cant seem to find any for lgt's. so if anyone knows where I can get my hands on some that'd be really awesome. thanks guys!!

^ bam. Cut them up; poke holes, mount. And if u don't like the color; spray them. I've seen a lot of people make their own; look pretty nice if you spend some time on them.

check out gorilla mudflaps they are extremely durable and cost about the same as RA. I got them for my forester and damn, they are super thick and an take a beating. I have been dragging them on the ground cuz I am lowered and they still are fine!

Im dying for some Rokblokz with red digi camo vinyl, but can't justify the money. The Ikea flaps only come in red/baby poop green. I went few weeks ago and can't find black anymore... Never thought of spraying them but might look good

Thanks Guys! yeah I tried with rubber matting I got at home depot, and they looked good, but they were too flimsy and rolled inward and looked pretty bad. ill look at gorilla and rokblokz but im probably gonna go to the ikea ones and just plastidip them....

I think the plastidip won't react well to the abuse it will get at that level - I would recommend an actual paint for that job..
