Mazda B4000 Mudflap problem

Hey guys,

i have a 2007 b4000. it has the integrated mud flaps built into the fender flares, as it come stock like this. i'm running 265/75r16 tires on it so these hard plastic mud flaps hover off the ground only by a few inches. i live in canada and with the snow and ice in the winter times in pushes and bends these little dinky things around. my rear ones are broken and i had to take them completely off. now all the snow salt and sand gets thrown up into my bumper..its really hard on it....way to go ford....what a great design....glad you build these trucks ford tough would hate to see what it would be like if it wasn't built so ford tough...its ridiculous because a replacement flap from Mazda is almost $100....anyways. yea not a fan of these trucks at all haha.

Any suggestions on how to fix this or a good looking alternative? i guess i could go buy new ones for $100 a pop or i could buy new fender flares from Bushwacker..but thats a few hundred as well. let me know what you guys think....the ranger flare system is definitely better then what they put on the Mazda's. thanks guys

If you just want to get some flaps, check out the older Ranger style that has a metal bracket and then a flat flap that hangs off them. I bet they'd bolt on with minimal work. I might even have a set around here from my '97.

I have the same integrated flare/mudflap and hate it. I'm trying to find some edge or newer sport flares to swap on to mine.
