Where we live there are many unpaved and sort-of-paved roads. I am constantly cleaning the truck- the price I pay for living where I do.
But below the doors really takes a beating. Thought of getting spray on bedliner material below the fold in the sheetmetal, but that won't keep it clean.
Anyone else use good mudflaps front and rear? Or solid running boards instead of "nerf bar" steps. Or.......?
If you have something that works for you like GOOD mudflaps or running boards, where did you get them? The auto stores around here have a really poor selection next to the steering wheel covers and air fresheners.
Look at truck ad ons web site under the sponsors section. I think they have some items you might be interested in.There are some other sponsors here that have truck accessories also. I have the mopar diamond plate mud flaps and they catch most of the rocks but not all of the mud. I also put the stainless polished rocker panel trim on....some say it will cause rust underneath them , but I had it on my other truck with no rust problems.
I do a lot of back road driving also , and I don't have any rock chip issues with the set up I have...the only mud I get would be resolved with fender flairs.....(hint hint Santa)

I live on a dirt road and I wash wash wash. The flap's help but don't get it all. I had the bottom chip gaurded to protect it from the stone chip's. I would think some style of running board's would keep it down the best.

Those rock chips stink, don't they? I had that problem. My folks used to live on gravel, and my gun range is still on gravel, plus I do a lot of work with railroads and rail yards can be rough on a truck.
I had my rocker panels and sides done with Rhino Liner. No more rock chips, can't even hear the rocks hitting the truck now. So far 2 years and holding up just fine.

Sounds funny, but I made up my own flaps using a thick rubber cow mat from the local farm supply store. It's a half-inch thick and doesn't flap in the wind as I made them longer than normal. Made a template from cardboard how big I wanted to go and then cut it out. Had some scrap flat steel laying around to make brackets to mount to the wheel wells. A few nuts and bolts to hold it together and I was done. I'm gonna get some chrome pretty ladies and mount them on the rear flaps for a little bling.:thumbsup
Keepin it cheap to put more on the street.
