Has anyone here added a set of mud flaps to a 1/2 ton AD truck? If so, would you be willing to share a few photos, showing brackets and flaps? I have not found a source for these, except in a few very old Stovebolt posts with links that no longer work. Thanks for any help!

I can't help for a pickup with a box. I have a flatbed. Here are pictures of it and Cletis himself!

In Montana,you need "Big Sky Mudflaps." Mine hang down from angle iron but they are illegal since they're 21" above the road. Cops have followed me (no ticket). I'd tell them that bald tires can't throw a rock anyway.

The other picture is of Cletis and Pearl in 2002 at Montana Andy's first ever Stovebolt get-together. They got the prized mudflaps for coming the longest way even though it was on his Harley.

There's got to be someone with flaps on a box.

Awesome! Those Big Sky mudflaps are great, but maybe a little bigger than what I need. I appreciate you sharing the pics!

Gold Wing, not Harley. cool Still, very cool flaps. I have a pair of full sized mud flaps from my previous employer hanging on the wall of my shed. The place closed and I got a souvenir. 😎. Hope to put them on a future Stovebolt.

Progress was a truck tank and equipment manufacturer started in 1922. It survived the Great Depression, WWII, and the Recession of the 80's only to be swallowed up by a conglomerate and closed in 2009. I worked there for eight years. The Progress brand still exists and is currently owned by an equity company, but to my understanding they no longer manufacture their own tanks, but buy them from another manufacturer.

My eventual plan of attack on both my one ton and 1/2 ton will be this: I am going to remove the fender to box side brace and build a custom one that will have hang down hangers to which I can bolt the mud flap. No hole drilling for this guy.
