Here is a little story about Duraflaps, and my stupidity in backing up.....
Had an '07 Dually with factory flaps, was backing up over a curb and the mudflap got caught with the wheel pulliing it down--the flap split, that was the only damage.
On my '09 450, I installed the Duraflaps and love them. Kind of a similar scenario as above, this time with a mesquite log--when the tire pulled the mudflap downward, it ripped the fender. Got a 7" gash that cost about $2100 to replace and paint the new fender. However, got to use the same Duraflap again, as there was absolutely no damage to it.
Moral to the story----Duraflaps are so good, they will not break before a dually fender will. I now pay a lot more attention to the backup camera....
