  • Oversize Mud Flaps

    • Year: 2016 Brand: Malibu Model / Trim: 23LSV Cost: $0-$249 DIY or Professional Install: I installed it

    We tow the boat a lot, almost 4,000 miles a year. On my old boat I noticed a lot of rock chips on the underside of the bow - they were hard to see but when waxing you could feel them so I wanted to get mudflaps - I saw some Rock Tamers but they cost over $200 so I made my own for about $50 - Just bought some Semi Truck mudflaps online - they were like $15 each then took some 3/16" or 1/4" angle iron and cut it to the length of my bumper.  I drilled holes in the angle iron to match the holes in the mudflaps,  I had to cut the mudflaps to correct length then bolted them to the angle iron - I then took 2 longer bolts and made a bracket to attache the angle iron to the hitch.  I also had to grind a little notch for it to fit my truck perfect, you can see it in the 2nd pic below.  This setup has worked for over 4yrs - Its starting to rust a little so I may need to re-paint it.  I also made a little hanger so when I don't have the hitch in I stick it on the back of the deck - you can see in the photo below.
