Have to agree on the Mopar flaps, they look good and install easily and keep a lot of crap off of your car.

Don’t waste your hard earned money on "universal fit" mud flaps...... Do it right the first time!
Like others have said......... MOPAR SPLASH GUARDS.

BTW! The splash guards were the FIRST thing that I put on the car after I drove the car home from the dealer..... Must have mod!

I am seriously thinking of adding them now that I upgraded to wider tires front and rear. Just notices what looks like grease splashed up against my door. Must have picked it up when I went through the trucking yard during my test drive.

Here is a set for pre-2015.

I'm in the market for some mud flaps (aka "spash guards" for @A Guy !) for my 2018 GT now that I'm going with lower offset wheels, but I'll be honest - I'd actually *rather* have some that aren't "molded". The "molded" type can be seen from the sides of the car (they "overlap" the body a little), which I really don't like. I'd rather have the "flat" type so that they aren't visible from the sides of the car. Has anyone ever seen any of the "flat" type for a Challenger? Everything I've seen are "molded"...

Thank you!

Actually, I obviously didn't look hard enough... :-) Here are some "flat" mud flaps for the Challenger. Besides not being seen from the side, they also have one more benefit - only $40 for all four of them! :-)

This is what I was looking for. They really can't been side from the side and they also seem to a little more "coverage" area compared to the molded versions...

The factory ones appear to be molded and contoured to the fender. Granted they cost 2x more for a complete set but looks better IMO.

Yeah, the way they are molded is what I *don't* like. :-) I hate how you have that black plastic covering part of the paint on the body itself - they are very visible when viewing the car from the side and look "out of place" to me. I'd rather have the flat type that don't "interfere" with the look of the body paint at all. As always, to each their own though. I would just rather have the mud flaps as "invisible" as possible.

EDIT:
It's hard to find side-view picture on a Challenger with mudflaps, but here is a post that has a picture of both before and after mudflaps to show what I mean:

https://www.challengertalk.com/forum...712-post9.html

It's a small "thing", but I would rather the mudflaps not cover any part of the body so that they are not so "visible" from the side view of the car.
