Mudflaps+Borla

I put rear mudflaps on my truck, I was wondering if a Borla would work in conjunction with them, not blowing an assload of heat and melting them. I think that they would work but i am really not sure, so before i dish out the $$ for a Borla I'd wanna make sure it wont melt my mud flaps. I have only seen one D-90 fitted with a Borla in real life so I cant really remember if it would work. ANy thoughts? thanks. I think i will also post on pirate4x4 those guys are bound to know the answer j-jk

I don't have mud flaps but I do have the Borla and the tailpipe is tucked up pretty high. It doesn't stick way out behind the wheel like the stock pipe. I don't think the Borla pipe would be close enough to the flaps to melt them. I could e-mail you a photo of mine if that would help.

haha long live the pirate4x4.

Phil some photos would be nice the more the better. does the Borla blow straight down to the ground or liberate exhaust at an angle. if its blowing down i would worry. my flaps are the Euro kind mounted to the bottom of the rear X member.... thanks.

Wow, I didn't realize they were mounted so far back. It blows down and angled slightly out. I'll get you some photos so you can see for yourself. It might not be until tomorrow though, we're having another winter storm and I have no electricity in the garage right now.

Phil, I just went and had a new tip welded on the pipe that takes the exhaust straight out about 3" behind the rear tire, with about 4" clear back to the flap.

Gotta disagree. Mudflaps are one of the unique and definitively "Land Rover" ingredients in the formula of Rover heritage.

Big rubber flaps that hang off the thing like a semi are one of the most unique appointments to the truck, not found on other vehicles and complete the Land Rover look, in my view, based on historically broad use of them on expedition vehicles and special vehicles build-ups.

Plus, they are polite to folks driving behind in muddy conditions.

Would you say this truck looks light on its feet?

They aren't so unique when you start getting them snatched off at $50 a pop. Phillip, the exhaust shouldn't interfere with the mudflaps. If you had caught me a couple of months ago, I had a set that you could have had. I think I ended up throwing them away as nobody wanted them.
