Splash guards


Recommended Posts

I installed the larger GMC splash guards on my truck. I like that these cover the width of the tire now, but they don't seem to be made as sturdy as the original ones. And doesn't use one of the screw anchor points on the back set.

They do look good!

Wonder if they do that to maintain flexibility if they get hit (tree stumps, rocks, etc.)? 

I've got the standard version on a '22 chevy 3500HD.  Still get plenty of muck up the doors and on the door handles, even with the stock tires. 

Looks like what you've added will help with that.

 

I'm thinking of going aftermarket adding on the stock ones.  To get a bit more protection for the doors, and the rockers/rear quarters.

Something like these:

Those should definitely stop most everything. Driving around through some of the muddy streets after the flooding we had last week had me cringing hearing the mud slinging up the side of my truck.

I wanted the gm guards but I was concerned that they didn't come down low enough to block the mud and rocks slinging up on the truck.  I went with the husky guards and have been really happy with them.  I was afraid at first that they were gonna be too flimsy but they don't seem to be and the flex in them was much appreciated when I had to jump a tall curb and the concrete caught one while going over.  I checked the guard afterward and couldn't tell it had hit anything.  They look good too.

Some good options above.  I don't think all of those were available two years ago.  I installed the larger GM flaps right after purchase and quickly decided they didn't give the coverage I wanted.  My hack solution in pics.  They keep stuff off the truck.
