it's built from 3 truck mud flaps @ 2 foot wide each.it made the width perfect @ 6 foot.i took a piece of 2" square tube steel and welded it to a 6 foot piece of angle iron.the hitch SLIDES thru the tube and connects to the receiver as normal.yep-had to cut a hole in the center of the flap for the hitch to slide thru and also had to slice the flaps in 2 places for the saftey chains to connect.i also made one with hula skirt(like u.p.s. uses on their trailers) for my utility trailer for summer use.my thanks to LADY K for posting.i'm not the geek that i should be.
Yeah, that might be easier/cheaper than putting a salt shield on my trailer. How well does it keep the slush off your sleds? I would probably use some conveyor belt material, and I'm sure could find some used metal around for the frame. Good idea.
jj-i'd use both if i were you.you'll still get a lot of slush from passing cars.the mudflaps were cheap-$7.50 for the whole truck.i used stainless bolts-they're a little pricey-but worth it in the long run.
I made something very similar to that. I happen to have a bunch (15-20) of those "grass skirts" you see on the back of motor homes. I don't have the actual mounting brackets, but the skirts are 8 feet wide, and 12 inches tall. They work better than the heavier mudflaps because they are not pushing so much wind, giving you a little bit better mileage.
Those pics look good, I'll see if I can get a pic of mine. My problem was that on the Durango, the exhause comes out the back. My buddy's ford truck worked great though for pullin his boat.
