Default Custom Mudflaps DIY


I picked up a pair of Volvo truck flaps for about $31 and some change. Yeah they are embossed with the Volvo logo but those will be tire side so you won't really see them. The have just about the right thickness and durometer.



I used some old mudflaps I pulled off my WRX before I sold it as a basic stencil for the shape and mount locations. There were a couple places I changed the shape a little bit to adapt to the Baja.




Here is the cardboard template on the Baja. You will notice that the "V" are tends to rub on the tire. I did some trimming and deepened that "V" to go below the body of the car slightly and around the plastic liner. It should be low and wide enough to keep quite a bit of stuff off the car and not rub the ground.

I made a slight mistake on the rear template. Where the finger sticks out on the top it was not made wide enough. So I cut out another and added 1" inward on the template. This pushed the flap further out on the body where I wanted it to stick out.




Here is the proper template on the car. If you look at the finger at the top you will see it is a bit wider then the original.



Templates laid out on top of the Volvo flap. Both templates were trimmed up here and there to fit the contours of their respective wheel well. *Plus Kiba giving his 2c and telling me not to screw up like I did on the WRX*

I got the first rear flap mounted today. But I ran out of daylight. Humbug! I will have mounted pics tomorrow.

I was able to get OEM Ford Ranger flaps to fit my Baja without any mods except for drilling holes for self tapping screws. I think they're from a 2004-2006 body style, not sure, but I got em for free and they work!

I'll snap some pics tomm. I still need a pair for the front.

I got flaps for my baja a few months ago but when I went to take the stocks off I couldn't find a way to get them off because there is screws on the inside too, did you guys have problems with that? did you just cut them off?

there is no way to access the other side of the plastic screws on the inside of the front wheel well. I just pulled really hard and they came off .
