    Mud flaps /articulating running boards

    Just bought a 2008 Escalade with the articulating running boards. Has anyone found a set of mud flaps to fit without any problems when the running boards are extended.I really like the looks of the color matched molded mud flaps. Has anyone modified these to fit and do you have any pictures?

    Could you please post a pic. Did you use the color matched molded flaps from Cadillac or did you find some others?

    Guess I will buy a set and see if they work on my 08 EXT, I am sick of the 22's throwing crap on the boards and the sides of the truck.

    Re: Mud flaps /articulating running boards

    I have the flaps with a standard running board. But I want to change to the power running boards, my dealer said I could but another said I couldn't. Any help out there?

    Re: Mud flaps /articulating running boards

    Well...I can't beleive they will go on...seems we can't seem to get an absolute answer from Doctordog....maybe he meant the REAR flaps which we all know fit..but the front...I can't see how that is possible.
    Please someone enlighten me.
