Mud Flaps for 2003 XLT SuperCab 4.0L

I would like to get some mud flaps for the front of the truck but there are none in the stores. I would like to get ones that match the ones that are on the rear of the truck. Any ideas or anybody out there that did the same thing? I've looked a little online but not sure if they are going to look right.

I have a set of the molded one for all 4 wheels. They are in decent shape. Could use a coat of Krylon to black them out, plastic fades. No mounts though, not sure if you would have them.

I would do $25 shipped.

Yep. They mount up to the fender and the black mounts that attach to the body right behind the wheels. I'm not sure if you have them. You will have to look. I can't find a picture of the mounts to show you.

Here's what they looks like on truck:

I have flaps on the rear so I'm just going to need to install the front. when you put them on did you remove the black strip that is on the bottom of the fender? pretty sure that has to go in order to install the ones on the front... I can't tell by your picture. let me know, be appreciated...

Umm, humm, the black stripe.

There should be a black plastic "box" under the fender. Then there should be a black metal mount hangar thing next to it for the mud flap. There also needs to be a hole in the bottom center of the fender for the flap.

ok gotcha. that box is there but if you are looking at the bottom of the fender (not where the box is) but in the front of the fender on the bottom they put a black rubber piece almost like a substitute for mud flaps. does that need to be removed. if you dont know what I am talking about I can take a picture

You can get the factory brackets like the 02 Ranger FX4 had to hang front mud flaps.

You won't need to remove that-the Ford mud flaps are flexable enough to work with it.
