Nope, I've not purchased them ... but having just installed the OEM Mazda versions, I'll comment.

1. The Rokblokz appear to be flat, conventional "flaps" ... not the molded, sculpted, more stylish Mazda versions.

2. They would be more practical than the Mazdas in our "Northern Country."

3. The concave-to-the front Mazdas efficiently catch and hold our winters' snow, ice, and slush ... impractical, but very stylish.
4. Absent numerous trips to Tahoe, practicality may not be your top priority

P.S. Plus, I'll bet the Rokblokz are much easier to install than the Mazdas.

I put the factory Mazda flaps on mine and they are sweet. I had rally armor on my Subaru and they were ok...

Stock is boring

Sweet, stylish, and slush-collecting.

An annoyingly amount of the stuff. The state uses so much salt and the water used to make cheese to salt the roads that its a messy salty mush here. Cars rust very quickly here. I wash my car everywhere every saturday during the winter months just to keep rust at bay and oil what i can to keep exposed bolt threads and such from rusting.

Looking forward to what your thoughts are on them and pictures!

If all seems well I'll probably order myself a set.

I just installed my set of mud flaps and I have a list of my pros and cons as well as pictures of the installation.

-Pros:
Very easy to install (granted I had a car lift to help).
Nice durable OEM feel to it (OEM is that same ridged style mud flat but much thicker material than OEM).
Matches well with the black plastic trim as one side has the same rough texture as the black trim pieces.
CAME WITH CANDY!

-Cons:
The rear mount requres a small L shape bracket to extend below the fender with a screw going through, exposing the sharp point of the screw (not very clean look but I can swap those screws with black sheet metal screws)
You have to place the vinyl logo yourself which does not stick on very well and looks cheap looking when applied (kept mine off after a test piece)
Provided screws are silver and contrast badly against the black which again I will swap those screws out for black sheet metal screws.

Others:
Did I mentioned it came with CANDY!!!! Holy smokes 4/5 stars just for that if anything (1 star off just because of those expose screws)
My instructions for some reason was printed on sticker paper which would imply I stick it somewhere?

Overall I'm very pleased with this product and just by the way it is now I highly recommend them as an alternative to other products such as rallyarmor since this is way cheaper and I feel as though this is pretty excellent quality.
