Has anyone tried the AJ mud flares/fenders yet

Looking at ordering the rubber flares/mud flaps from AJís that are $200 that I saw someone on this forum mention. I like that they are $200 and that they are rubber and can flex with anything they might run into or hit. The tires on the krx just throw mud into the buggy constantly. Be nice to keep some of it off of us. But the $500 Kawasaki wants for theirs Iím just not paying that. Ill cut up some mud flaps and rig up my own before spending $500. But the AJ price donít seem bad. Got 100 miles on the machine since buying it last Thursday and canít wait for my extras to start arriving.

Well I just tried to order and heís out for a week or so. But they are made out of the same material as the aftermarket skid plate, they are uhmw, not rubber like I assumed. But Iím on his list to get a set.

I have a set of his fenders for my x3 and they work great. They do flex and like have been scraped around many trees and havenít cracked. He makes them in west va and sells quite a few

They aren't rubber, and they aren't UHMW, but they are nice. Similar to what the roof is made of. They do have some flex to them if you push on them, but they don't flap in the wind, and would probably pop out the plastic rivets that hold them on before they would break. Just as it is supposed to work. I only bought the front flares for mine. Turns out, that's all I need. You can see by the picture that the cage is clean, the seats are clean and best yet, the driver was clean. I'm considering getting some of the cheap automotive mud flaps and extending them a little lower, maybe 2-3 inches. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they worked. I was concerned that they didn't wrap further up and forward, but turns out they are just fine where they are. Great product, great price, and Andy is a great guy.

BobX2 those look like they do a great job keeping it out of the cab and off the windshield. I donít mind a little but there was mud just about covering everything, so itíd be nice to keep it out of the cab at least. Nice looking setup you got there.

I need to stay away from forums. Every time I get on I discover something that I "need". LOL. Now I "need" the Rokblokz trailing arm mudflaps... Just placed my order.

I saw those too when I was looking at the front mud flaps. But I wonder how needed they are with the trailing arm skid protectors? They seem like they would just get ruined rather quickly for my use, in mud and rocky terrain. No desert near me. But their fronts I want since AJís is out.

Not sure how well they will hold up, but I'm going to give them a shot. They are supposed to help keep mud and rocks from getting in the wheels and calipers. I know I had a ton of mud in that area after my last ride. Most of my riding is rock crawling, so I will see how well they hold up getting pinched between the trailing arm and the rocks. They say they will withstand that. I will put it to the test.

Let us know how they work out. Always good to get actual user feedback. Iíll be keeping an eye on my machine and if I see a need Iíll order up a set.

I decided to order these too, but Iíll wait for AJís to get the mud flaps in since I talked to him on the phone for a bit and said they should be in soon. I saw some similar trailing arm flaps at kutv, but they wanted $190 shipped. These Rokblokz are $110 shipped. So Iíll see how tough these are myself. BobX2, between youtube vids and these forums, I didnít realize how much stuff I needed that I never knew about either. Just found some stuff this morning for the krx from brute performance I just ordered too.

Iím looking at the elite sxs engineering shift gate that comes in Kawi green too. Anybody use one and like it? I like how itís just high and reverse, or low and reverse, depending on what your driving in. And then the neutral in middle. I think itís $55 so not to bad.
