The 2019 Toyota Tacoma lineup includes the SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro, along with available additional packages. When purchasing a Tacoma SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and Limited customers can opt to add front and rear mudguards to their vehicle. But what exactly do these added features do?

Toyota mudguards are designed to protect your Tacoma, your passengers, nearby vehicles, and nearby pedestrians from flying debris, water, mud, or anything else thrown by your vehicle’s tires. As you drive over muddy puddles, trails, or virtually any other surface your Tacoma will fling road debris upwards as well as backward. Rocks and mud can damage the paint finish on your vehicle and lead to costly repairs. The Tacoma mudguards create a barrier behind your wheels so flying debris can’t as easily come in contact with your vehicle. Genuine Toyota mudguards are designed to blend in with the exterior style of your Tacoma, adding to the rugged and dominating look of your truck.
