Titan Swap Spray Prevention

After driving my truck around a couple times after my Titan swap, I am already sick of the amount of mud/water/pine needles that flies off the tires and somehow straight into my front window (I swear it is like I have a funnel on it or something).

I'm thinking I have two options for this - fender flares or mudflaps. I was gonna use generic options for each. Something like these for example:

Flares (pretty sure the truck in a pic is a titan) - http://www.truckcustomizers.com/p-53...xy-flares.aspx
Flaps - https://www.zoro.com/buyers-products...w&gclsrc=aw.ds

Though I'm not sure if the flares will have enough coverage. I also feel like the mudflaps will not prevent the stuff from coming in my window but instead might only protect my lower door.

Anyone with experience with either on a TITAN SWAP or with wheel spacers/offset wheels?

Not sure if these will be wide enough for you as they are 2.5", but I used these on my old blazer that had 2" spacers and they worked like a charm.

There's a bunch of different similar styles like this. Mine came with sheet metal screws and install was pretty straight forward. I ended up using a screw about every 1.5" around to ensure smoothness. If the screws are too far apart you get angles instead of a nice curve.

They look nice too. I will be using this when I go wider to stay PA legal. Tread must be inside the flare here.

FYI, nothing is gonna help when you're turning.

My wallet is clean and my friends and family beg me to stop drilling holes in my poor X, but some holes just have to be drilled.

and this is one of the main reasons I am going to use pathy half shafts with the m205. I want the wheels to stay in the fenders.

I got a set of flaps I was going to put on my dodge... they are huge but could easily be cut down to size... PM me if you want to take a look at them, I traded my dodge in for a new tundra so no use for them now!

I'm getting ready to put on those flexy flares too. I'll probably just stick em on first, see how they look before screwing them on. I'll post up a pic when I do, in case it helps.

@ChrisHaynesUSA, I can definitely attest to that. My X was always pretty clean just dusty in AZ. Now its, wet dirty pine needles, mud, snow etc... haha. But totally worth it

I've got some of the pacer stuff, but have yet had any time to install it yet. I don't think the front will be too bad, but no way to install them on the rears over the doors.
The front is the biggest issue, getting the windshield and side windows completely covered
