One of the overlooked components in an off-road set-up is the mud flaps. There are times that when the OEM bumpers get replaced by sturdier steel bumpers, the stock mud flaps go away with it. You should consider replacing these too to protect your rig's surface from the flak of road debris. Having the mud splashed all over your rig might look cool for the mean time; however, it won't do you well in terms of keeping the rig's paint intact. But the problem might lie on compatibility. There are aftermarket bumpers that are unwilling to accept back the OEM mud flaps. In this case, the solution is to find a set that can be installed to your modifications. ARB did exactly that. To complete your rig's ARB ensemble, the brand actually created a set of mud flaps that you can integrate to your rig once you install ARB bumpers. We installed the ARB mud flaps to our rig that's already been equipped with an ARB rear bumper.

- Embossed ARB logo
- Made of rubber
- Available in black
- 2 years limited warranty
- The mud flaps did not lie too low from the mounting point unlike rally-inspired counterparts. It meant that we did not have to worry about it getting caught up with hazards when going through the trail.
- We took a careful look at our rig from afar. We were happy that the mud flaps remained discreet. Despite having the embossed ARB logo, the mud flaps did not draw unwanted attention to them.
- We ran the rig through a muddy path to see how effective the mud flaps can be in preventing splashes going to the car. It worked just like any other mud flaps. But since it was a bit shorter than some OEM mud flaps, there might be a chance that your rig's behind gets more mud.
- With its width, it was able to cover wider tires. One of the problems in having tires wider than stock is keeping the mud away from the rig.
- While the short length of the mud flaps is ideal during off-road adventures, we find that it is the opposite on road use. On wet roads, the rig was leaving more splashes to the vehicle behind.
The ARB mud flap will serve you just like any other mud flap. The only difference is, it is compatible with ARB bumpers. You would have to avail a pair of it should you upgrade your bumpers to ARB.
