Mudflap Systems for 4×4 Trucks
Last Update: October 1, 2023
Whenever you tow something on your 4×4 truck, factory mud flaps are usually just not enough to catch all stones, rocks, road debris, and obstacles that fly from the wheels. They damaged the paint on the truck, trailer, and towable, causing tiny dings and dents.
In the future, these imperfections may lead to rust and corrosion of the body of your 4×4 truck and damage your trailer, camper, boat, or whatever is being towed. If you are unwilling to tolerate that, quality hitch-mounted mud flaps are a solution for you!
Towing Splash Guards for 4×4 trucks [Types and Fitment]
Hitch-mounted mud flaps are designed for ultimate protection whenever you tow something with your 4×4 truck. They are mounted to the car’s rear and are designed to catch even significant road debris, not letting it damage your investment.
Such splash guards mount to the hitch of your 4×4 and are available to work with three types of standard hitch receivers:
So there is no need to select the set that will fit the exact year and model of your 4×4 truck. Just see the hitch size and pick one of two options available. Mud flaps are completely adjustable and are guaranteed to fit your 4×4 as long as you adjust them.
Adjustable Mud Flaps
Numerous American 4×4 owners proudly select Rock Tamers, RockStar, Luverne, and TowTector mud flaps, as these mud flaps are entirely adjustable and easy to install when needed. Let us look into these mud flap systems in more detail.
By adjustable, we mean the possibility to adjust the height and width of the mud flap system once you install it on your 4×4 truck. Moreover, a top-notch adjustment system allows changing the size of the mud flaps already on the car. It is significant for those who transport overweight cargo in the beds of their 4×4 pickup trucks.
When you load all the cargo into the pickup bed, look at the mud flaps and make sure they are not too low. The heavier your cargo is, the lower the ride height, which means the truck height changes. Respectively, the mud flaps will also go lower; you may want to fix this.
And vice versa, when you unload the cargo, the ride height of your truck increases. The mud flap system will also go up and leave certain unprotected areas. You must go to your 4×4 truck and adjust the mud flap system height by making the mud flaps sit lower.
When nothing is towed, and you use your 4×4 as a daily driver, you can easily remove the mud flap system and keep it in the garage when it’s not in use. You will be able to install it back quickly when you will need extra protection for your truck.

I bought a set of rock tamers mud flaps for my Tacoma, as in summer I have to tow a trailer with it. I like ease of installation (it has taken me about 40 minutes to install the system once I got it). Now, I remove the mud flaps when they are not in use, and put them on my Tacoma when I am about to tow my trailer. Good investment for those, who tow...
