Where to find front mud flaps for a 99 limited fender flares style.

I just took off my running boards and realize I should of looked for front mud flaps first. Iíve been reading itís difficult to find OEM. Does anyone have a source or know of a good alternative?

I ended up getting some off the bed of a wrecked Tacoma and cut/retrofit them to mount where the fender flare/liner bolts are located. It's not the best way of doing it but it serves its purpose. I can upload a picture if that's a route you'd wanna go.

That would be great if you can post a picture. There's a ton of tacoma's out here and can probably get some flaps at a junkyard. Is there bolts already on the 4runner or would I be using the bolts from the tacoma? Just curious because I'm not sure how these mount, but I can probably figure it out.

There are no OEM front Limited mudflaps - they ALL came with running boards. Same for the later 'wide' SR5 color-matched flares.

The front mudflaps that are hard to find came on the 'skinny' black SR5 flares. Mudflaps for the non-flared (or chrome strip) 4Runners are the 'easy' to find ones, though those are probably discontinued long ago too.

I had a feeling that was the case with the limited... It looks like Js'00imited4runner has the limited style fender flares by his pictures so hopefully I can manage with the tacoma ones he's talking about or I'll just have to go a universal mudflap route.

Yeah, the limited flares are tricky because of how the base tapers to meet the running boards. The wider SR5/Sport flares have more options because they round off at the base.

May be best to find a simple flat-style guard.

So i just called the toyota dealer and you can get the flares for the limited but it would be $868!!!! and apparently it comes in two pieces on each size whatever that means.

Here's how they look. I wanted to bring them a little lower but I had already cut them and lined them up.
Like I said they dont look the best but they do help out with snow/rain/mud etc.

Thanks for sharing! Gives me an idea on what to do. Btw I have the same Hankook tires. So far theyíve been good the last 10,000 miles.

splash/mud flaps

https://www.toyota-4runner.org/3rd-g...ted-flaps.html

Hello, This is a post from way back . last time i checked they were still available . As far as i know you will have to modify the back of mud flap in order for it to sit flush..

hope this helps, Ray...

That's what to do if you have the wider SR5/Sport flares but they don't work that well with the limited flares. The base of them are slightly different, but different enough.

I know I'm a little late here but the guy in the thread that was posted installed them on a limited just fine with a minimal amount of trimming.
