So I picked up mud flaps off of ebay (OEM) for $73.00 shipped. :)

Search for: 17' Chrysler Pacifica Mopar Molded Splash Guards (front & rear)

They are very easy to install, unscrew existing bolts and attach. Well, except for the passengers side - rear. That one requires the wheel to be removed so you can drill a hole that's missing. I installed them (for now) without removing the wheel or drilling the hole for the inner most bolt (on passenger rear only). It's not going anywhere, there are still 3 other bolts holding it. I figured I'll be rotating the tires at 5k anyways, I'll drill the hole when then. Why waste the time removing a wheel now? :nerd:

Good find and great price for the splash guards. I want to like them but I always feel the change the look of the van/cars when installed. :(.

Put up some pics of the van with the splash guards installed if you get a chance. Maybe more real world pics will entice me to change my mind and order a set.

So I thought I could just find some pictures on google and repost, no such luck. Not even from Chrysler.

So here's some pictures from a couple of different angles. I think the mud flaps look/fit nice on the van, you might say they compliment it! Please excuse the dirty van, I drove home in pouring rain today (we needed the rain). Real world testing, LOL. No BIG mud splatters from driving in the rain/mud (and you can see how the tires are real dirty). I'd say the splash guards are doing their job.

I like the look of the 18" rims on the limited. Very easy to wash.

Mud flaps look pretty good too. On my todo list.

I did the same thing with mine. That last screw didn't seem to be necessary. They are a nice touch and should help protect the sills.

It looks like the splash guards are a configurable option when ordering the Pacifica. I wonder if they're selected in the order if they would be installed at the factory or just tacked on by the dealer upon arrival. Anyone know?

At the factory, I bought some and already have then for 73.00 shipped, wasn't gonna pay that higher price. I can't wait to get mine in......8 weeks I was told.

The dealer here gave me a set. They came in and the other person didn't want them on theirs so he just threw it in with mine. Nice deal

mud guards

When I got my van I paid 80.00 for them installed by dealer.I love them and they blend right in with the granite color of the van. I would post some pictures but dont know how that is one of the bad things about being 76 years old and out of time with things the other thing is I dont have to work anymore.

How flexible are the mud flaps, last set broke off going in and out of driveway with winter snow build-up
They've got some flex to them, but I wouldn't call them super flexible. They could certainly be torn off with enough force, but the snow would have to be pretty deep and compacted.

Were your set that broke the OEM Mopar flaps?

Attached are pics of my Mopar flaps, on a very dirty Pacifica. :wink2:
The material is not very flexible, but based on the OEM molded fit, I expect them to be pretty robust. As always, YMMV, depending on how hard you kick the frozen slush off of them. :surprise:
