Help With Rear Mudflaps

I got my rear mud-flaps that I bought from Ryan Sakurada today (thanks Ryan!!) They were off a 110 and the brackets don't line up with anything --no real surprise there.

Can anyone out there:
1) Take a picture of the way their mud-flaps are mounted.
2) Get the part numbers for the mounting brackets that fit the NAS 90.

I believe that the 98 50th anniversary addition, that was sold in the UK had the tubular rear bumper and also had rear mud flaps.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think the 110 mudflaps were specifically for the 110. I got my flaps from RDS, they will work with the rear bumper however you will have issues with the rear tailpipe. Call George at RDS I know he had the mounts at somepoint.

I can take a snaopshot tomorrow, but 110 flaps aren't right for a 90. THey are made to sit closer to the tire on a 110, due to the added overhang of the rear. The 90 brackets mount straight to the bottom of the rear cross member, and the flap hangs flush with the rear cross member.

Thanks Wicks!

The flaps themselves are in "like new" shape. I will most likely end up fabricating the brackets to make them work on the my 90

There is a difference between the "UK style" mounts and those from the NAS.

There is no such thing as NAS spec mudflap.

The white truck above has SERIES mudflaps on it.

The pic Phil posted is a standard 90 mudflap.

I actually have one spare bracket from my mounting travails.

The one I have is from '98 forward (slightly different shape), so you'd have to order the matching other side and make sure it is also '98 stock forward.

That's cuz SERIES mudflaps were available stateside, but 90 flaps were not.

I think that Rovers north has the current mudflap for sale, i dont like the exhaust cutout. I ripped both my rears off last fall. and had to order Td5 style mudflaps from the UK, which was cheaper than RN fwiw. I bought my first setup many years ago from RDS, I believe the bracket was separate from the flap

I have a nice set of D90/Series rear mud flaps and need a set for the 110 if you want to trade. Does the above link for RN flap fit the 110?

A couple of things that you may want to consider before dropping 100 bones on mud flaps.

1. They don't really keep the back of your truck much cleaner in the rain

2. If you are really in the mud, they pack the mud in deaper into your wheel wells and around the gas tank.

3. You will tear them off in the rocks when you back up aginst a rock and the flap gets wedged between the rock and the tire.

but good for logging type roads and for keeping my wife's LR3's windshield intact.

For Mud/ real trails they would come off.

I know having front mud flaps really does a good job on cutting back the mud slung around under the truck. The rears dont do much, they do keep rocks from hitting peoples windshields, its more a courtesy thing imo.
