Installed previous generation style front mudflaps and it works. However it is only held in place by two screws. The new fender design has no fold at all front and back that I don't know if it will provide good protection from door dings hitting the wheel well arch.

Part number is 19212797 for prepainted black.

----------

I ordered the rear and will use the 2015 fitment rear mudflaps. 5-7 days due to it being prepainted black.

Since its for a 2014 the molded side is not flushed to the fender. It wasn't flushed in my 2014 so I didn't mind as long as it provides splash protection.

Update! I added a top clip to hold the mudflaps and it fits perfectly. I used a bronze plated cabinet corner clip(Home Depot) and used a heavy duty(it will say it) 3M moulding double sided tape and added some screws. Used a smaller screw to hold the mudflaps as the corner clip had a smaller hole. If you have a drill you can just enlarge it and use the hardware that came with the mudflaps. I wasn't sure if it was strong enough but after misaligning the clip the 3M did hold it in place well. Once installed, the pressure on the cleaned surface should do its job. For more strength you can drill on the third hole but it will hit the lower metal part of the fender which is okay but didn't want to hurt it by causing rust down the road. So technically this a no drilling install;). Pics updated in the link^.

Simply order the 15' front flap from huskyliner. It's molded perfectly to fit the indentation at the top. Fits perfectly with the steps without using any modifications.
Order the rear flaps from GM. They match perfectly. The whole thing installs in 5 minutes with no unsightly use of adaptation or hardware.

Do you have pics! I like the design of the 14 front flaps. The weather tech was an option but didn't like the design. Plus I got the painted 4IU one. I ordered the rear paired ones and it's taking awhile.

Thanks! The new mudflap design doesn't cover all the way up top because of the fender design. Hope it does its job in my trip tomorrow.

Update! A more durable upper clip. No need to press it overnight. The double clip with the double sided tape will lock it in place. I just need to paint the metal part or cover it with black tape.
