Here are the Mopar heavy duty splash guards installed.

LOOKING GOOD!

Those flares and flaps look like they were OEM.  

After mounting my Hawk for the first time, I found my jacks were 83" apart and the trucks widest point was the tires (stock) at 79".   It looks like adding flares would make clearance a bit tighter, but do-able.

 

When is your Grandby due?

Thank you for your kind words sir!

 

I decided to install the splash guards after hearing some words-of-wisdom on this forum regarding driving long distances on gravel roads. Lots of great first hand experience here and this is such a valuable resource.

 

My Grandby is due to arrive around one month from now. Gosh, that actually seems like such a short time after waiting so long, lol. The dealer suggested I call them at the end of this month just to make sure everything is on schedule and he will provide me with the exact day. Interestingly enough when I am driving back from Wyoming and Montana after having my Grandby installed I will be dropping my truck off at AEV for a bit of an upgrade. Four to six weeks later I can head back to pick her up one more time.

 

I promise to share pictures and updates!

This will protect the positive and negative 6 AWG Ancor marine grade tinned battery cable running from under the hood, under the cab, and up into the bed.

OK, decided to purchase a Diode Dynamics 30" LED light bar (flood) for the front AEV bumper and a pair of SS3 LED pods (sport/combo) for the rear AEV bumper. I opted for the flood light bar up front since I will have the OEM projector LEDs and a paid of SS3 LED pods (max/SAE fog). I may call Diode Dynamics tomorrow and change my 30" bar to a combo...

Wow. Diode Dynamics have amazing service to back up their fine products. I received an email this morning stating my order had already shipped so I called and they are shipping me the 30" combo along with a return shipping label for the 30" flood that has already been packed and shipped. All of this at zero cost to me which I kinda feel bad about since this is my error. I would have been happy to pay the additional shipping fees.

Here is the flood/driving combo:
