We are currently running a group buy of ASAP Flaps. The group buy will be open for 2-3 months (until May 1st 2021 at the latest). Production will begin shortly after May 1st 2021 . Production takes approximately 1 month, but could vary depending on unforeseen delays. If you decide at any point before your kit ships that you no longer want ASAP Flaps, you will be refunded all but $5 (transaction fees). Storage bags will no longer be included and the flaps will come bare, without logos, but at least 2 stickers will be included that can be placed on the flaps if desired.
What are ASAP-Flaps?
Well, in short they are a very high quality, practically indestructible, polyurethane mud flap that can be easily removed and replaced quicker than you can air down one tire.
Why would I remove my mud flaps?
As many of you know, mud flaps can be bad news for any off road vehicle and especially the 100 series. If doing any sort of serious offroading, the flap can become trapped between the tire and obstacle and potentially rip off your bumper.
Why not just completely removed my mud flaps?
There a number of reasons why you should want mud flaps and maybe some we haven't thought of (we would love to hear them):
Keep your vehicle cleaner when driving in inclement weather or muddy roads and prevent things like fresh tar and paint from getting on your paint.
Keep from breaking other people's windshield, especially when traversing dirt/rocky roads as a group.
Some states require mud flaps
Prevent damage to your trailer from rocks, dirt, tar, etc.
And most importantly: because real Land Cruisers always have flaps!
How's it work?
The polyurethane flaps are precisely cut and designed with an integrated handle and keyhole design to allow quick removal. The laser cut stainless steel brackets ensures a secure fit to your vehicle. The front brackets were designed to not interfere with larger tires and actually helps hold back the inner fender well over the infamous pinch weld. The nylon washers were specially chosen to break away to prevent damage in the event you forget the flaps on and back into an obstacle. The design is such that before you finish airing down one tire, you can have all 4 flaps removed and the same with re-installation.
Every kit comes with 4 urethane flaps, all stainless brackets, and all corrosion resistant hardware. Stock Bumper kits come with extra brackets and hardware to help reinforce the rear bumper when the factory flaps are removed.
Will they fit my vehicle?
Yes and maybe no. They will fit all fronts unless major modifications have been made to the body plastic (not the fender well or pinch weld). The rear will fit if running the stock bumper. To-date, I have only had the opportunity to test on the dissent aftermarket rear bumper and they fit. Other bumpers may require small to large modification to make fit or may not fit at all. I have tested them with (295/70/18 or 34.26”x11.62”x18) with no rubbing. I will hopefully have more variables worked out as people test them.
