When, Where, And does anybody have pics and ideas other than the metal fabricator, that's dangerous! Maybe a roto molded product? rubber belting?
That should have been something Honda certainly should have noticed in trials even with factory wheels and tires. I have 27/9 and 27/10 Swamp lites
with 12" HD black spoke wheels. Its really bad now!!! But the Ride is far more superior!!!

Looks good. Too bad you had to drill through the fender though. Is there also a "bottom" to the fender in underneath, or just what's under there? I don't have my machine yet. And what exactly did you use?

Fender flare looks pretty darn good. I looked at that material a couple of months ago and wasn't sure it would attach well. I think now that you have done it and posted pics of the look more will interested in giving it a try too.

What does it look like underneath in the wheel well. Is it solid under there like a truck above the tire, or is it hollow like a quad?

Hollow! zip screws from the a/c trade work well. I backed the horizontal on the fender with 1/8 alum angle it does a good job, the vertical secures well into the plastic. then painted everything underneath black for a clean look. I still need to hang a mud flap on the bottom area to keep the brunt of mud off the door and your side. A work in progress. This is what happens when your the first to own a new model , you become a beta tester!!!!! Next is to come up with something for the dump bed

scubasteve,

Hows it going on flares for the bed. My biggest complaint on the 4 is the mud throwing with the aftermarket tires. I'm going to do the front just like yours. Does it keep a lot of the water and mud off you?

You Might Try This

I'm new to this forum, but after my first couple of rides in my 2P, I was in search of something to keep mud out of the cab. I rode a '91 TRX-300FW for 23 years. It had such great fenders I rarely got crapped on from below. This Pioneer slings it everywhere. Couldn't find anything available from Honda and no after-market made for it. So, I spent $79 on a universal pickup bed mat (4' x 8') and cut it with a razor knife and straight edge. I rounded the edges with some heavy scissors. I found that the tires at the farthest point on the body were 2" outside the body and that a 6 1/2" wide piece would catch that 2" and reach to the inside edge of the panel behind the front tires and underside of the dump bed in the rear. I used 1" hex-head stainless screws with coarse thread and rubber grommet. For the rear (since it was fighting gravity along its full length) I added fender washers. The mat itself is about 1/4" thick.
Not telling anyone to do this, but I did not get a single mud glob in my cab last weekend--a 25 mile ride across the Cumberland Plateau boonies. Here are some pics.
