Mud flaps for my Jeep !?!?!?!?!?!

Took my CJ in for inspection last night (in Utah). The guy said that he would have to fail me because I didn't have mud flaps. He said that the body has to block at least 50% of the tire, or else you need flaps. I told him that he obviously hasn't looked at any of the trucks or SUV's made in the last several years - they are ALL that way. I also told him that I would give my $$$ to someone who wanted it.
Has anyone else heard of this????

go and buy some rubber "cloth" that goes under patios it's about 1/4" thick or so and bolt that to the rear of your jeep, would maybe cost $5 including machine screws.

The point is, there is NO-WAY any of the trucks/SUV's currently in production can pass this rule - stock, from the factory. Why have a rule that your brand-stinkin new F-350, left-the-assembly-line-yesterday $40,000, paint-still-wet truck, can't pass a state inspection?

I'd go to a different inspection station for a second opinion. If it comes down to it, get some big honkin' mud flaps with quick-release levers. Make sure they have the chrome girl on the bottom. And get some of that grass-skirt stuff some of the semi's have. That would be cool [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Yeah thats what I'd do. Slap on some cheap autopart store flaps, then take them off when you get home from the inspection

Yeah I've seen your Jeeps.. Mine is underway to start breathing air at the same altitude as yours! Ok so the regular store flaps wouldn't work, but you could use flaps from an 18-wheeler, they'd hang low enough.. Don't forget I was the one who named your rig! I don't think any Jeep I've seen covers 50% of the tire, unless it's stock, or something.
