Have your parts person VERIFY that the rears fit. The parts computer showed that a part fit our trucks...then when I picked them up and tried them out...guess what...you got it...they are for the standard TB bumper...not ours. My parts guy called into GM parts line and gee...it has a recorded message there to warn you they won't fit an SS and that the SS part is in R&D...why not put that in the description you idiots?!

Thought I'd chime in...the fronts are standard TB deflectors...so no trouble there. If you do find a part that fits the rear...let me know please!
thanks, I was talking about the fronts not the rears...only need them on the front wheelwells..cause the front wheels turn:D I hate to put them on at all:hissy:

The ones I ordered are plain black front and rear Chevrolet mudflaps for TB w/o flares. I was quoted ~$26/pair. Hope they come in soon cause I'm tired of seeing the SS sit in the garage.

I really only want the front ones but if the rear ones fit...great. If not, I'll just be handing them back to the parts guy.

Was the fit of the rear ones kinda off or way off? I'm not above using my Dremel :D

The rears were WAY off! Our bumper is evidently quite a bit longer (top to bottom) at the wheel well than our non-SS bretheren.

I'll have to say that the flaps (when they fit) aren't very sexy on our trucks...but if it keeps my ride looking good...I'll do it.

Everyone thought me and my dad were crazy for putting mudflaps on his black Solstice...until they started seeing roadrash on their own cars! I figure the SS will be a keeper...hopefully it can take up a space as a permanent fixture...like my MSE has!

At least your truck is silver...us poor souls that bought black (swore I'd never own another black car!) have to worry about EVERY little knick or scratch showing...even drying the SS off is an adventure!

But when clean...

I remembered real quick why black was bad...and my wife is about to kill me for all the washing I do :duh: ...our vette doesn't get near the attention for washing...its yellow. That's a beautiful car you had...we had an '02 GTP anniversary edition for 3 years...loved it. You have a gorgeous truck now...congrats!

"black is better...but not for long" That's my new, Car/Truck motto!!! I love having the silver, still sharp w/o all the hassles..I actually enjot it, whereas my GXP was under a cover and never driven...Thnx..

I don't know what the actual name for these parts are but they are the black plastic pieces at the bottom of the door sills and are only visible when you open the doors. They snap into the body and help to hold the rocker moldings on the truck.

I just went ahead and ordered an extra set because I'm hacking up the originals (kinda messed them up removing the rocker moldings) so I can use double sticky tape to hold them in place nstead of having to snap them back in the body. I'll use the new set if/when I decide to put the painted rocker panels on again.

yeah, we have em' I just checked, had me thinking about that pretty hard before...I think I'm going to break down and pick up a set of splash guards fro the front...looking at my 866mi truck with the chips all over the sides lower rear especially, in front of the rear wheels (that flare is sharp, but not good for deflection of projectiles!!)

Just out of curosity I counted the chips just on the drivers side rear door and I quit counting at 26. Chevy Trailblazer: we put the rock in rocker panels :D Oy, I want to drive my truck again.

I have a 2007 Trailblazer SS which mud flaps are the best for this suv? And where do I find the ones that will fit? Or can I buy ones for a regular Trailblazer?
