I feel like all the mudflap topics on this forum get inundated with manufacturers trying to promote their product. It's kind of obnoxious and makes it hard to tell if someone genuinely likes the product or if they're trying to make a sale :P I think rally armour , gorilla, and rok blokz are probably all great products with mibor differences and I doubt you'll be disappointed in choosing any of them. I personally am looking for some that don't stick too far out of the side of the fender and I'm having a hard time figuring out which product is the best for me. Sometimes gorillas look like they stick out and sometimes they don't, same with the RB's. I dunno I'll figure it out. Flapatax is also an option but the forester part of the website is down and I emailed them asking some questions and no one answered so despite the great price ( I think like $50) i don't think I'll be buying them :/. Anyways thats my take on things, sorry if I didn't help ya at all ;P
Yeah, I think in the end it's just personal preference.
So my understanding is that Gorilla is some sort of reseller for Rok Blokz, since my Gorilla flaps came with instructions that referenced Rok Blokz :P
As we've just covered in the past few posts, Rally Armor flaps are much softer and floppier (and apparently shinier). My Gorilla flaps are essentially thin polyurethane cutting boards hanging behind my wheels. (And, indeed, people have made DIY mud flaps from IKEA cutting boards and the like.) They don't flop. They flex, a bit.
As to sticking out, they do a little bit. My user gallery has a photo of my Gorilla flaps installed. They stick out about an inch from the body. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. The other day I was backing into a parking spot beside the curb, and I was a bit too far to the side. The edge of the flap scraped against the curb and let me know what was happening before the wheels bumped anything. But, again, that noise made some heads turn, and made me look foolish.
