rubber flaps in front wheel wells

My 2005 Ranger needs all the rubber flaps for both sides in the wheel wells. Does anyone know if flaps from other model year rangers will work?

Do these have a tendency to disappear (like just fall off)?

If they are not available in the local automotive recycling yard, can they still be purchased from the dealer?

No, they wouldn't be year specific, so any flaps can be installed

LMC Truck is a good place to look for trim and body parts: Truck Parts & Truck Accessories for Chevy, GMC, Ford & Dodge Trucks | LMCTruck.com

Go into Ranger section and look for mud flaps, or any other parts, they have a whole lot of Ranger stuff

The mud or splash shields are not the mud flaps used to keep debris off the body sides, these are the flaps/shields inside the wheel well that helps keep debris out of the engine compartment, the front bumper, etc. There is one that should cover the upper control arm on each of the left and right sides, etc.

Wheel well rubber was deleted by Ford. They had an engine bay overheating issues. I also have an 05 bought new. I inquired about it when I bought it. Also if you buy a set from for you will see it's just a tiny thing, not anything that would cover.
