I know many of you are taking off your mud flaps off, but here in the Yukon, the Department of Highways put small pea gravel down on the roads in the winter. When it was -45 Celsius (-49 Fahrenheit), rocks flew up and right through ALL FOUR mud flaps making them look like they were shot out by bullets. As a result of non-functioning mud flaps, we now have many paint chips just on the front of the rear tire well and the black plastic wheel trim is getting chewed up. We are not extreme off-roaders, and we need something. We also want the fix to look good, so we were thinking of just going with the OEM mudflaps. What can we do to prevent this from happening again?

Here is what I did

Take a set of mud flaps from a Peterbuilt (etc.) and cut them down to fit, and then attach them to the stock flaps with some spacers so they can be attached. Works great, protects the body better, and looks pretty natural when done.

I will look into that. Thank you! Do you have any pictures of what the Peterbuilt mudflaps look like on an FJ?

Oh, sorry, I'm still new to this site. I see that you sent me a link to the other discussion. Thanks!

I've been real pleased with how well they have held up, and after performing this mod 3 years ago, have enjoyed how well they keep the rest of the FJ clean during bad weather.
As you can see, my front ones were cut a little short, at the top, outboard end, you will want to extend that I think:
