Greetings. I purchased factory mudflaps for my 2018 Cruze LT RS model and the front flaps do not fit the RS due to a plastic panel that runs along the rocker area that is not present on the base LT model. Has anyone found front mudflaps that would work without modifying the body panel?
Thanks all!!

I too would like to know the answer to this. Also, would you be willing to provide the link to the mudflaps you are referring to? I would love to get some on my 2018 LT RS hatchback as well before winter.

There is no mudflpas available for our RS Cruze. Believe me, I searched long and hard and they don't exist. Some people have hacked the installation but it looks horrible. I would be the first to buy a set if there was a set available.

This is a link you can use these on the rs model if you get the universal set you will however need new mounting hardware or carefully remove your old ones to make this work you will need to also drill out the flaps to fit your desired fit

I too have come to the same conclusion working with the dealership parts dept as well as their aftermarket suppliers. Oh well.

Thank you Justcruzin88. I would prefer a set that is molded rather than flat and as well without the aftermarket company logo on it. I worked with the dealership parts dept and also their aftermarket supplier with no luck. The raised rocker panel extra piece that is not on the non-RS version interferes with all available molded flap options.

Does anyone have pictures of how it doesn't fit other than saying it doesn't fit? Seems weird to me that they would list and sell a part specifically for this year make and model that doesn't fit.

It doesn't fit trust me. My local Chevy dealer has some of these on hand and they tried on a car that was in their lot (an RS like mine) and it looked like crap in front and shady in rear. They do not fit period.

Man that sucks. That's so annoying. It isn't even something you could modify with a dremel or something? I wasn't trying to call you a liar or anything either but I'm in my 30s so my internet experience trends towards the posters are almost always wrong so I was skeptical haha.

Hey no problem at all man. I personally would not trust a Dremel on a part like this but maybe someone with an artistic hand could come up with something decent. I would much prefer having some plug and play mud flaps and not have to "try" and make them fit. I have had my car for 11 months now and if I remember correctly, my first post on this forum was about mud flaps for my car and to this day, G.M. have not come up with a solution so I am confident that they won't ever produce some for our cars considering that they are now degrading the 2019 with great features that already existed in previous models...it's as if they are trying to discontinue the Cruze's.

Just got the Rokblokz for christmas and put them on over the weekend. They really look great imo and will help keep the salt off my car. We just had our first snow storm too.

Rokbloks definitely does a good job here with the included hardware/spacers/etc. Plus there is no cutting or drilling required and you're not self tapping screws into your brand new body which just gives me chills thinking about. Def worth the 100 bucks in my opinion. I'd also recommend their right angle ratchet they suggest when checking out for anyone that's interested. If you've already got one, even better you can do the install without removing the wheels.

I'd say it took me 30 min or so to do the full install.

p.s. how in the world do you search on this site?? I feel like I'm going crazy because all I could find was the google search bar (why is that here btw)
