Benefits of Splash Guards for Your Ford Truck or SUV

March 14, 2023
Back to articles

Are you planning on taking your Ford truck or SUV on an off-road or outside adventure soon? If so, it is important to make sure your vehicle is prepared with all of the necessary accessories, including splash guards. Protect your vehicle and the area around it by using splash guards when driving through rough, wet, or messy terrain. 

What Are Splash Guards?

Splash guards for cars prevent water, rocks, mud, and debris on the road from being kicked up and landing on your vehicle. Since trucks and SUVs sit higher than most cars, there is a chance for objects and materials on the road to be kicked up into the air. Primarily, there are two different styles of splash guards: stiff molded and flexible flat. Splash guards are mounted on the wheel wells of a vehicle, with one behind each tire. While they might seem straightforward, splash guards can help prevent damage to not only your vehicle but the surrounding areas as well. Additionally, splash guards can protect the paint on your vehicle from rocks and other road debris, while enhancing its appearance. When shopping for splash guards, it’s important to obtain the correct size for your vehicle’s model. Our available accessories, including splash guards, are engineered to perfectly fit Ford vehicles, which provides peace of mind for our drivers.

Mud Flaps vs. Splash Guards

While the terms mud flaps, splash guards, and mudguards can often be confusing to differentiate when looking for vehicle protection, they can be used interchangeably. People refer to these rugged accessories as both mud flaps and splash guards, as they both aid in the prevention of road debris from flying up and damaging your vehicle. The same simple process is used for installing mud flaps and splash guards, so don’t stress about what you call it. Here at Ford, we refer to them as splash guards. Keep this in mind as you search the site for the right splash guards for your vehicle!


5 Benefits of Splash Guards

  1. They can help keep your vehicle cleaner. Splash guards protect your vehicle from mud and dirt, resulting in less time spent at the car wash. 
  2. They protect your vehicle. Splash guards prevent rocks and debris from scraping the paint or metal on your vehicle while protecting vulnerable areas.  
  3. They lessen the vehicle’s splash radius. Reduce the impact of puddles you may go through by deflecting the splash as you drive.
  4. They’re inexpensive. Splash guards are an inexpensive way to protect your vehicle and are extremely easy to install. 
  5. They are attractive and look good on trucks, SUVs, and some cars. Enhance your vehicle’s appearance with splash guards that provide a rugged, customized look. 

Do I Need Splash Guards? 

Splash guards are an excellent consideration for those looking to maintain their vehicle’s condition, wash it less, and add to its rugged look. We have a variety of splash guards for different models including, but not limited to, the Ford Bronco®, F-150®, Super Duty®, and Maverick®. If you aren’t sure if splash guards are the right choice for you, ask yourself: 

  • Do I travel on dirt roads or off-road frequently? 
  • Do I live in a snowy or rainy climate?
  • Would they look good on my vehicle? 
  • How expensive is the paint for my vehicle if it needed to be re-finished?
