    Just ordered a new 2021 80th anniversary edition. Thoughts on putting on splash guards? I don't want to distract from the looks.

    Welcome to the site! Personally, I dont like the splash guards, as they tend to drag off road.

    I will not be doing any off roading at all. I just don't want the paint chips and things from salt/stones on the road

    Not particular fond of mud flap's, but after looking, at mine, I'm seriously thinking about a set of Qudratecc s at least for the front. I have to travel a mud road up to the house, and after last week snow and several day of freeze thaw, looks like I've been down in the boon toolies

    They should be easily removable for the days you actually go off-road. No need to have them ripped off.

    I have a 2021 Grand Cherokee anniversary model myself, and am considering splash gaurds / mud flaps. Drove 1.5 miles on a muddy road and mud was thick just below the doors, which transferred to the back of our pants getting in and out. The front wheels will need the flaps as well, as that is what covered the trim under the doors with mud.

    Mopar, Weathertech, and Husky are some I plan to investigate.

    We will also be considering side window deflectors so we can leave windows cracked in hot weather without worrying about unexpected rain coming through. Not a big fan of the look of flaps and window deflectors, but function first.

    paid cash for it.
    My 2011 came with OEM splash guards, and I’m generally indifferent about them. But up here in Canada, a lot of the coolest off roading is further up north, necessitating a fair bit of gravel road driving. Mud flaps can have their place, functionally. My 2011 has certainly benefitted from having them. It has no stone chips, or paint damage, and the body is in unusually good condition for a 10 year old vehicle. That may not be entirely related to the mud flaps though, lol, but I’m sure they’ve helped over the years. As for its off roading history, it was probably limited. It’s a bottom of the line Sport, that still had the tiny OEM tires, and with open diffs, you wouldn’t have gotten very far off road with it before having to push, lol.

    Once you put larger AT/MT tires on the JK the splash guards may not look great but the protection from road debris or pebbles will be appreciated a bit more. My rear fender has plenty of divots and scars from crap thrown from the front tires but thats one of the jeep things.
