Mud Flaps

Does anyone know of a vendor here that sells mud flaps to fit my 93 stake bed? I've been all over the net, and can't seem to find a flap with the dimensions on my truck. (28"x12") Here's a photo of the truck, and the only one mounted to the drivers side. (RHS missing)
All I can find is wide ones for duallys. Thanks for any help.

Probably be the easiest to just buy ones for a dually and then cut them down to be just a bit wider than your tires...

Guess there aren't too many other options, huh Dave? I would've thought these items would be all over the place. Thanks for responding.

Ended up with a single ryderfleetproducts 2'x30" flap for less than $25 shipped. Will post a photo of the finished product. Thanks for the suggestions, men.

I can't believe it, but the flap came today. Was that over night shipping? It was $7 to ship. It is pretty thick, but I'll cut it tomorrow, and see how it hangs.

Alright, so we all know hanging mudflaps isn't rocket science. But because I'm bored, because of our cold and continued winter, I decided to snap a few photos, for the few who may be interested. I ended up going with 97 Chevs suggestion, and purchased this single flap for $20+ bucks including shipping.(24"x30") and needed to cut it in half. It's pretty thick, almost 3/8ths.

Because of it's girth, I ended up cutting it with a worn mason bit on my junk circular saw. It was a slow process, but was easier than a razor knife....(I think)
And because it got a bit fuzzy on the edges, I cleaned it up with a belt sander.


As we look underneath, you can see why the old flap went bye, bye. So a couple new holes were needed for the new flap, and drilling in that tight spot was a chore. I ended up using this cheap 90 drill adapter I bought years ago for my woodshop, but really never used it. It finally earned its keep.


And the final product. Because I was too lazy to clear my garage, I did this outside, in the snow. The other side flap is a tad different, but in the warmer weather, I'll tackle the other side. Right now, this will work.
