Which one is the correct # for Ford's molded mud flaps? I have BC3Z-16A550-FA and BC3Z-16A550-GA. They will go on my 2013 F250 XLT. They talk about a wheel lip molding and I don't think I have a wheel lip mold on my truck. Any help would be nice.

Thanks Carl

I'm sending the rears flaps back, and they're sending the rear drill-less 12" wide, extra long (14" long) with the smooth stainless (FR 2XL 11 SS). I'll post up pics when they come in and I install them. I did install the front ones (12" wide) and they look good.

I do have the wheel liners in the rear and had to remove them to install the flaps. The flaps protect that same area as the wheel liner, so there is really no reason you would want to keep the liners in place once the flaps are installed.
Man I wished you took a picture of the 14 inch wide on the rear before sending it back. can you take a picture of the fronts? also did you get the 9in length or 11 in length for the fronts. also you said you had to remove the wheel well liners. why did you do that I know you said it protects the same thing but what about the upper and front of the fender. are you talking about the whole wheel liner or just that little plastic piece inside.

Sorry, it stuck out really far beyond the fender and didn't taper back in. It just looked out of place. It was really windy and cold, so I was doing everything quickly to get on the front ones and take the one in the rear back off. The front ones are the 9" version. Personally if I had to do it again, I would go with the 11". The front fender wells retain the liners, in fact you clip the front flaps to the liner as part of the install. I was referring to the plastic piece that is used on the inside rear fenders. I'm pretty busy this week at work and likely won't get the pic's up until I have both sets on. Hopefully I have the new rears for this weekend.

Another very different solution

Check out CattlemanHD running boards, for a fantastic and functional look as well as rear wheel well protection. See HD Running Boards |. A whole lot more money than mud flaps, I know. Like I said, a very different solution.

I had some made for my dually.
Getting the Ford ones is getting harder and harder. So I sent out one of my originals and had some made but with my own custom touch

Original Ford 36 x 12


My design 36 x 12 for the front


My design 36 x24 for the rear

Duraflaps

I've run Duraflaps for a year now with no issues. They're rigid enough that one DOESN'T need the SS weights to keep them from flying on the highway. One of my gumbies got the driver's side pinched between the tire & a concrete curb which resulted in the thing ripping off with the fender liner...no damage to anything because the bolts pulled through them. This result happened because I reinforced the plastic fender with an extra strut before I mounted them, otherwise it might have taken the fender off. I did get the SS weights with my company name & logo on them (rear only), to which they did a great job of. Hope this helps.

I finally got the new rears in and installed over the weekend. Below are the pic's. The front ones are the 12" wide, 9" length, the rear ones are the 12" wide, 14" extra long. The ones for my '05 F-250 fit great and all holes, brackets lined up perfect. I can't say the same for my '13 F-350. The front ones were easy, but the rears were a pain. The long bracket has two slots, but no instruction as to which slot to use, and then the instructions state that you need to drill a hole in the flap to attach that long bracket to the flap. The first time I set it up, I realized that it wasn't pulled back enough, so I drilled a different hole and used the inner slot of the long bracket. It doesn't make sense to me how they have a drill-less flap that requires drilling of the flap? I still like the flaps, but the install could be improved...

Do you have a picture of how much clearance on the back tire with the mud flap for the rears. So you said awhile ago you should of got the fronts longer do you have pictures of the side and clearance of the mudflap and tire? Still have not bought mine been waiting to see what it looked like on your truck since you have basically the same truck in black. They do look good on your truck though. And you are right the 14" wide for the back would probably look bad. the 12" wide covers the tire pretty good.

Sorry ssmblazer about having to drill into the mud flap. We found that going from one Ford to another the bracket length would need to be changed from model to model. It was more precise to allow the customer to set the right angle of the mud flap and drill the hole in the right place. You would think making the holes in the bracket into slots would allow for enough adjustment, but we still had customers with problems; so we had no choice but to leave it un-drilled.
For some reason the fenderwell lip curves forward toward the tire at a different angle from one truck to the other making the required length and/or postion different from one to the other.

Hey got a question with your picture. what length are the front and rear duraflap and how much clearance is it from the road front and back. Also how do the brackets mount on the truck. Do you have to drill on the truck.
