Just a quick question, why do ALL websites list the molded mud flaps as NOT for renegade models/will not fit renegade models? Are the fender flares different? I'm asking this because I was planning on getting these for my liberty. Thing is, I have the renegade style flares(painted, riveted) as part of the freedom edition package. Sooooo.... what kind on molded mud flaps do I need? Are there different colors/painted versions?

Any input would be appreciated. :wink:

I had the molded mud flaps on my Renegade, no issue with fit. However I wouldn't advise buying these mud flaps, they have a big pocket that collects mud, snow, ice etc etc. This causes the flap to hold alot of weight at the bottom which then causes the screw holes to tear open so that the flap is no longer properly secured to the vehicle. After a few years there was barely any screw holes in the flap left to hold the flap in place.

You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of them installed by any chance would you?

I just went to O'reilly Auto Parts and bought a set of mud flaps for mine. $11.99/pair. Got two pairs. They are rubber, with some fiberglass for reinforcement. They are NOT hard and rigid, and will not collect a ton of ice/snow. They look good and were simple to put on with included screws. You can barely see them in my avatar...

I have the molded ones on my limited. They do hold a lot of snow and junk. I noticed when washing mine this weekend that the screw holes on the back ones are starting to get busted out. The front ones got bent up some and cracked at the edges from off road driving so I would not replace them with the same. They came on my jeep so I didn't get a choice this time. I want some that are more flexible for off road

So are they any different colors? I seem to have found websites offering "neutral gray" for the front while only offering "black" for the back(for the 2002-2004 year)?!?! Do mud flaps up to 2007 work on a 2003? :|
