    I checked out the Ranger today. I went home and gave my Taco a hug. I really think the ‘ LRG_DSC05603.jpg 16-‘17 DCLB is an instant classic.

    Are those stock mudflats? My 17 off road didn’t have any mud flaps.

    The mud flaps are an OEM accessory. $100 or so. Worth it for me since the mud kicks up so bad when I’m at the farm. They don’t shed very well, though. Snow and ice really stick.

    I’m the same way. I love having the mud flaps. I know a lot on here don’t like them.

    When I got my '17 the first thing I did was remove mine. Have 'em collecting dust on the shelf in the garage.

    I had a whole day of avoiding cold patch scattered all over the road. Why they don't tamp it in the holes is beyond me. But, no cold patch anywhere on the truck except for the mudflaps. That's fine with me.

    It started out about mudflaps now i think it’s about a truck in a ditch with a bunch of highways guys standing around doing nothing, you know, like here in PA.

    Our town spent 25K on a shake and bake truck. Mixes hot patch in perfect sized batches for the hole, dumps it in and tamps it level with the surrounding road surface. That was five years ago. The two people that knew how to use the truck quit or retired. Now the truck sits idle and we are back to cold patch by the shovel full put in a wet hole on a rainy day....it stick better then...you know...

    IMO the Tacos look better without 'em!

    I specified mine without flaps in order to maximize the slingage potential.
