    Mud Flaps

    Are they really needed or do they design cars so rock chips etc are not an issue. Does it make a difference on Cars vs SUV vs Trucks?

    The stock ones generally don't make a huge difference on pickups in my experience. If you really want decent protection you have to put some on aftermarket. Usually where you see the most benefit is on pickups with A/T or M/T tires.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    This thread posted on Hawkeyenation would be significantly more active and more entertaining.

    I hate to get back on track here, but if you drive on gravel a lot I would get some.
