I was watching youtube and the kydd folks just got a F450 to tow a big 5er. One comment they made was mud flaps are required on a dually. Are they really required by law in some areas?

According to the keystone cops in louisiana they are as well as any truck with a rear bumper over 24" off the ground. And yes I got told that when I got pulled over for it and the truck was at factory height lol

Many states do, more to do with debris from exposed tires, commercial specifically. Fenders or where tires are covered usually meets requirements.

Why would you not want mud flaps on a DRW, I see too much paint damage.

20,000 miles and the paint is still perfect.
My combo don't go off-road and even I have some miles driven on gravel, the RWD original fenders seem to cover the rear pretty good.

In my state the rear wheel legally has to have coverage beyond the centerline. I tow behind my truck camper so use flaps that hang even lower to protect the trailer.

Don't know if there required, but I added them to protect what I'm towing. I had gravel stuck between the tires and when it comes out you know it....

If you have gravel stick between the tires your tires are running too close together. More likely what you hear is gravel stuck in the tread, and launched...

No its gravel between the tires. Happens mostly without the TC. When I have to park in the over flow at the boat ramp, Plenty of loose gravel have spoke to others with DRW who have said the same.
