Landrover defender mudguards

Many of us have land rover defenders and if you are like me then you have found that you have to replace various rubber mudflaps every two years on average as they start to tear off around the horizontal join to the mounting plate. It gets annoying.

Has anyone found a work around, or a replacement which isnt a landrover mudflap which may last longer ?

Are you fitting pattern parts or Genuine LR mudflaps? - makes a huge difference to longevity

My experience of Land Rover mudflaps (20 years or so) is to replace with genuine or they wonít last 2 years.

If you make them out of PU as opposed to Hypalon, they'll last forever!

Toyota mud flaps will also last longer.

Fair play to landy, that is a really handy and visible feature that the warranty is coming to an end and get shot of it in year 3 when the new mudflaps go on.

Yeah, I had this issue with the 110. I replaced them with Isuzu mudguards and I had no further problems.

Um, I forgot to mention that I replaced them at the same time I replaced the 110 with the Isuzu...

On my 110 I have put strips of stainless on either side, redrilled and mounted. Still perfect 5 years later

Mine has the original flaps on 15 years later, 110 as a daily driver. Genuine LR are good and hard wearing, hard to beat. If I was to change I'd probably go with tuffrock (think that's what they are called)
