I use the Rokblokz (yes, they're overpriced). I run all four for daily driving and long highway hauls. Remove the rears prior to off-roading while airing down, and put them back on while airing up. I don't do enough extreme rock-crawling to also pull the fronts.

I've only had fronts since I took delivery in November. I have a rear set but just haven't installed them yet.

I have Rokblokz on the front only, and combined with the OEM tube steps, no more rocks or mud splatter on the doors. I will most likely eventually get rears as well since the rear plastic bumper has a gap that allows splatter through. Plus, as badly as we are all concerned about windshield chips from rocks, I want to pay it forward.

I’ve done just fronts on my Gladiator while waiting for my bronco. Just wanted something to get me by so the body doesn’t get too beat up w rocks. If I were keeping it long term I may have considered going all 4. But still totally content w j fronts.

The rears will keep some mud out of the recesses in the bumper at the rear. Doesn't help at all in the front bumper area.

I just installed a set of WeatherTech flaps over the weekend. They're reasonably priced at $55 a pair. I still need to go drive through some mud to "test them out". ;)

Fronts only for me.
Just went with auto store generic flaps. (Canadian Tire)
Simple install and I think they look fine. (They work great.)

I’ve always ran front. Back are kinda pointless, if you’re going over 30 mph any gravel that the rear spit is gonna spit well behind the bronco. Me and friend compared my Rekgen and his rokblokz, they are basically identical. And Rokblok is twice the cost.. minus the fact that they are quick release (which 99% of people are never gonna utilize), they are not worth it. Anywho, just my 20 cents. Here’s some pics to help.

Are these the regular length flaps or XL?

Thanks for the replies and pictures. Ordered the Rokbokz all the way around. I’ll post a picture when they arrive. Website says may be slow delivery due to demand. Guess a few Broncs are ordering

I hope you like the RokBlokz! I just installed mine this past weekend...we'll see how they hold up. I initially installed all four flaps to the letter of the instructions, but the next day, I decided to experiment with the front ones, swapping the brackets from side to side. Doing this actually seemed to improve the stability of the flaps for me, as well as reducing the "buzz factor" where the upper edge of the flap rests against the fender flare. Plus, this swap repositioned the front flaps more perpendicular or "square" to the body surface of the vehicle than they were initially. I have the smaller tires of the standard Badlands, and even with the brackets reversed the whole flap assembly is at least flush with the crash bars, so I have no interference issues.

I love the way they look, I'm just to cheap. $20 Amazon ones for me. They look good and work just fine.
