Default Mud gets slung behind tail lights, Please help

Everytime I take my truck off roading or even if a tire just slips in dirt or something it slings it all around the wheel well which is obviously expected but somehow EVERY single time there always ends up being mud that starts leaking out from under the tail lights.

So Each and Every time i take them out and of course there is huge clumps of mud stuck behind them causing me to have to take them out every single time this happens

Hopefully I'm not the only one this has happened to please let me know if there is anything that I can do to stop this. It drives me crazy. If you have any idea of how i can fix this let me know
Thanks

happens to me as well. I've thought of getting some rubber hose and slitting it and wrapping the lights in it but havent tried yet

Had it happen every time to me as well...never bothered me though. You could get some sort of gap guard and glue/epoxy/stick it behind the tail light.

Happens to me too. Once I get the new tail lights done I think I am going to liquid nails some rubber behind the lights like Rangerjustin said

Okay well if anyone does end up making some sort of gap guard or something that keeps this from happening try to make a "How To" of some sort
