Hitch-Mounted Mud Flaps
January 22, 2023
When the truck is used for towing, road debris and stones can badly damage the paint, the trailer that is being towed and the towable. That is why it is highly recommended to take care of the truck and towable protection to avoid dents, chips and other damages that can further lead to rust and corrosion of the truck itself, its towable and what is being towed.
Of course, modern cars, trucks and semi-trucks already come equipped with mud flaps, yet OE mud flaps are usually not enough to stop flying road debris and stones. That’s why if you are into towing, think of a quality hitch-mounted mud flap system that can be easily installed when you have to tow something, and can easily remove it, when nothing is being towed.
