Thanks.
I would try to cancel the order. On partscheap it clearly says FRONT only. Like I said earlier, with the molded splash guards I know for a FACT you need different ones for the front and rear. I doubt that those mudflaps will fit both the front and rear - I think there has to be a specific rear mudflap to order. Once again, that is only my opinion. The description is confusing on different websites for it..

You're not listening... You can put the flaps on front and rear ONLY if you have the correct front AND rear parts. The two sets you ordered WILL NOT work front and back.

They are FRONT and REAR SPECIFIC! They are also Sedan and Hatch specific in the rear.

I have Rally Armor mudflaps on my car... I had to fab up a custom bracket for the rears because the inner liners are not flat in the rear.

does anyone know if the splash guards (lets say the molded ones in this case) affect the mpg?

I checked my email this morning and... "Update for your Order #XXXXX placed on January 1, 2013: We are pleased to inform you that your Ford Custom Accessories items are ready to be picked up or installed from Ted Britt Ford." ... Lol

Well at least the extra mud flap set only cost $27. I'll see if I can mod it to get it on the rear, but i'll need help cause i'm a noob lol. If not, I guess i'll have to try to return it or sell it...

Anyone moded the rear to accept the flat mud flaps?

Probably only if you're doing over 100mph.

Just came in the mail. Figured i'd take some pics of the product and the instructions. Btw, the instructions are kinda terrible. And for some reason Ford didn't drill holes in the flaps yet... I guess so people can choose how they want It, idk.





Planning on equiping it this weekend. Oh and btw... the instructions clearly show they equip to front or rear.

I think there was some confusion between splash guards and flaps... Not bad looking, I like mine better ;)

from the pics i've seen online, the rally armor mudflaps seem a bit wider. The only thing I dont like about that is it's so wide you can't see the tire at all from the back.
