Mud Guards? Ya or Na?

Just got a new 2018 Compass Limited and was considering adding the OEM mud guards. Wondering what current owners feel about how well the wheel wells protect the fender paint without them. I assume the OEM would have a good fit and finish. Anyone with first hand knowledge?

Thanks for any input.

Worth every penny to me. Fit well and look good IMO

I, too, have the Mopar flaps. They are made in China, WAY overpriced for what they are. That said, they do fit nice and help keep the gunk off the sides of the Jeep. I think I paid $35ish per set. The stupid plastic snaps they came with went in the garbage. I bolted mine up. They are not going any place.

I did the same thing... trashed the plastic "rivets" and bolted mine in. I'm happy with them.

OEM Mud Flaps were the first Mod made to the Jeep. I used a silver paint pen to highlight the "Jeep" on the rear flaps.

Only good if you never plan on going off pavement. If you do, you'll just end up breaking them.

Correct assessment. My Latitude was not good off pavement, which is why two weeks ago it went away. But, I do miss the seats, MPGs, and the sporty feel of the 6spd shifter in it. Just can't afford two at once.

Off pavement for me would be sand/beach, not woods/rocks. So mud flaps work for me.
