Default Creative Mud Flap Ideas

It's Fall season here, which means cold and wet. When hauling kids around in the ATV trailer they're getting covered head to foot in mud and bear poo (it's everywhere).

So I'm wondering what works for temporary el-cheapo rear wheel mud flaps. Cheap door mats? Thin plywood? Wife's pajamas?

I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.

Mine came with thin rubber flaps they were longer but i did cut a little bit off them. They have been there since 2008.

Rigid or flexible?

BTW... great looking quad. I'm jealous that you can plate it and ride on the road!

Find a torn off 18 wheeler mudflap and use that. Or go to a place where they work on Big trucks I bet they will give you one if ya ask. My

Ok, thanks.

I'm just wondering if I use something like a rubber door mat (flexible), approximately 30cm X 50cm, if it will snag on the tire and flip up. If so, it might be better to use something more rigid.

My kids are wondering if you have in iceland?

Yea you should be good with a door mat if you find one that is not to soft.
I used a small piece of a door mat between my number plate and plate holder to make it flexible, so i lift the plate when connecting the trailer and do not damage the number, because it is road legal.

Are the kids wondering if i have rubber material. ?
I don't have it laying around no. But i am positive you will find it cheaper somewhere around you.
