    Question Are the OEM mud (splash) guards worth buying and installing?

    Thinking about ordering them for the my Ultimate with my next oil filter purchase, but I'm not convinced they actually do anything.

    I have them and like them. They are absolutely pockmarked from road debris over the last 97k miles. Must be helping a little bit.

    They are tiny and do not cover much area. Besides that, where they contact the paint they tend to rub and will, over time wear it down to bare metal.
