That's one of the biggest weaknesses of the ranger: no front mudflaps = rocks hit the undercarriage and the cabin rusts

No sir, cannot install any kind of mudflaps on my front wheels.

Ford did not include any metal framing/brackets to allow me to do so.

I had some AWESOME off-road mudflaps, was going to replace the back ones too, but the screws would have been driven through plastic, so the first winter the flaps would have ripped off

Yeah, after a certain year rangers cannot have flaps in the front, i've never understood that one, considering ford didn't stop making the 4x4 versions.

I wish my truck didn't feel inclined to leak from every seal known to Ranger, from the trans back.
