Bushwhacked fender flares and mud flaps/splash guards

Hey all,

Recently purchased a 2019 Silverado 2500HD. Ordered bushwacker fender flares (pocket style) for it and im now on the hunt for a good mud flap/splash guard. What are people using thats good, but also wont break the bank.
Post pictures of what you got if you have them please.

TIA for the help,

I am running 14" wide DuraFlap mudflaps and love them. They are about 3/8" thick and are more of a stiff mudflap. I have a buddy that runs the Gator back mudflaps which are nice heavy rubber. I like the Duraflaps more due to them staying down when you are doing 80 down the highway whereas the Gatorbacks are flexible enough where they seem to lift easier.

I am running Bushwacker OE style flares and just got done with a warranty claim due to the front two on both sides cracking around the screw holes that hold the flare to the truck.

I see you are from ND as well....what area? From your avatar you mush go west riding in the winter. We are heading to cooke in December.

I just have some side and quartering pics of the truck. I will get a couple tonight.

I am from the Hazen area about 75 miles NNW of you. As of now we are heading to cooke Dec. 13-17 depending on snow amounts. the Snowys and the bighorns are ahead of cooke now on the snotel sites. I try to get 3 or 4 trips in.

Thanks for the pics. Man i like those OEM style fender flares. I wonder if I should have ordered those ones in stead of the pocket style. My tires dont stick out that far, hmmm.

Do you have the flaps with the stainless steel weights on them or yours without?

Also is yours the drill less versions (if so how did the holes line up) ? How about long or standard?

Sorry for all the questions just trying to get an idea which ones i would need to go with.


Also i know quite a few ppl from the Hazen/beulah area, i used to work up in Beulah.

Go under truck model>Chevy Mudflaps>Model 2500/3500. I ordered the ones you have to drill yourself due to the fact with the fender flare you have to set them out more to get the flap centered over the tire. If you get the drilled ones, you cannot center the flap on the tire and I am very anal when it comes to making sure the flap is straight and centered. It took me about 6 hours to get all of the flaps on the truck and it involved lots of taking the flaps off and back on to get the holes perfect. Once you get one rear and one front figured out for holes, you can use it as a template and just drill the holes for the other side.

Mine are the 27" long in the back and I am like 90% sure mine are the 24" long in the front. These are the longest ones under the 2500/3500 selection. I also have the stainless steel at the bottom.

If you have more questions just let me know.

Where did you work in the Beulah area? I work at one of the power plants.
