If you would check our web site you will find that the mud flap bracket is offered as a stand alone item as well as the mud flap and is also offered in a combo with the bracket. We ship what the customer requests since some buyers have other manufacturers hitches and want our flap or they may have our hitch and want to use another manufacturers flap on our hitch. We also offer the Deluxe version of our V.2 hitch which includes the mud flap and bracket.stangro said:Shouldn't all the parts necessary to install the mudflap to the hitch come with the mudflap, or at least inform the customer of this up front. This doesn't make sense to me. The mudflap came with 2 bolts/washers/nuts. Following your logic, they should have been extra as well.
The Hitch is a marvelously well design piece of hardware, and I was really impressed with its installation. it is unfortunate that the Bushtec matching mudflap cannot be readily installed.
I got my V2 deluxe hitch from Hal... came with all of the hardware (including a hitch lock I didn't expect) and instructions for everything including how to mount the mudflap and bracket.Bloodstone05 said:I ordered the V.2 hitch and the decided on the mud flap also. From Hal the mud flap comes with all the parts but no instructions on how to mount it. There was a bracket that came with it , but the prepunched holes on the mudflap didn't line up with it
stangro said:Well, if I knew then what I know now, I guess I would have gone with the bells and whistle (deluxe) version from the get-go.
First I didn't think I needed any isolation devices, so I ordered the Bushtec base model. After reading (primarily on this board) that isolation is really recommended, I ordered the elec connection isolation relay/wiring. Then someone said a mudflap really keeps dirt & grime off your trailer, so I ended up building the deluxe pkg. Now I need a mudflap bracket...
