Whatever you want to call them, flaps guards whatever... I'm not the first person to make these and in fact someone said they got their flaps from Napa so I went there. The replacement 18 wheel flaps where like $19 each.


If never saw my security up grade for my trailer you can check it out here (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=32433).

Since I already had that installed I used it as the mounting point for my flaps.

I just welded a piece of mild steel angle on top of it. Then I used solid 1 inch OD for the main cross support. I used 1 inch ID tube to attached the flaps to by sandwiching them in between 1/8 in mild steel which was welded to the tube.

I drill a hole through both the tube and round bar so I could remove them at the ramp and store them in the Suburban.
