You'll still hear the scraping. My wife has them on her LGT and they are always heard when leaving the driveway. Probably not as loud but still audible.

Just need to decide what color decals to get now. I did also email Gorilla to see if they will soon have some too.

Just bought some and received them in a week. Great product, tough hard wear and good look. Highly recommended.

Got an email from Gorilla today so I'm probably going to go with them. Heard so many good things about gorilla flaps.

RokBlokz Mudflaps on '14 FXT

I ordered the Rokblokz Mud flaps for my 2014 FXT recently, and finally got around to installing them.
Installation was very easy. I did not even have to remove my rear wheels. The only trouble I ran into was with the front ones. Per the instructions, the innermost hole that the mudflaps screw onto requires a small plastic spacer in between the flap and the car. The 1" #14 screw that was provided was not long enough to engage the metal clips, so I just had to get 1.5" #14 screws from my hardware store. Not a big deal. The mudflaps themselves are very sturdy and are very hard to bend. For $79 shipped, they are a great value.

Same here!
I was wondering if I was the only one having trouble with that bushing. Good thing Rockys have the perfect screw to finish the job.

I ordered from Gorilla and they arrived today. I'm hoping to get a chance to install them this weekend... But I also have to work and install rear brakes on my Legacy... Not to mention both are in desperate need of baths.

I am interested in purchasing some mud flaps soon. Was gonna go Rally Armor like my last forester had, but I keep hearing for the 2014s many people having issues. Like the flaps touching the tires and such. The installation from RA also doesn't seem to nice as it looks like I would have to clip stuff and bend metal by hand hah. How do your Gorilla flaps look and how was the installation? Pics? Are the Gorilla's set just to bolt right in or is there special adapters to keep the flaps straight? I also hear these do not bend much, are they real stiff?

THANKS! :)

I am going to pick these up. The Gorillas look great! Stupid question, don't judge me, ha....Assuming that on the gorilla website in quantity all I need is 1 as it comes in a set of 4? I cant see mudflaps being $90 each but thought I would ask.

I believe it would just be 1 for quantity would get you all 4 since all 4 will be uniquely made. I'm gonna pick up these myself now also seeing that the RA seem to have a design flaw.
