835R mud flaps?

I know I've seen it here, and elsewhere, but I can't find it! I'm trying to avoid the problem of mud on the doors and gas cap from the rear wheels, that others have reported on the 835. Is there a fender extension that helps? I've been to Deere.com and elsewhere, but now I can't find it to order it!

Thanks!

The extensions that JD sells are not long enough to cover the area needed.

Consider using automotive style rubber fender flares for this project.

Example of product

Pacer Performance 52-189 Flexy Flares Black 2-1/2" x 58" Heavy Duty Reinforced Rubber Fender Extension Kit - 4 Piece https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00029X0ZG..._qYVrDb8REV4TV

I am getting a 835r tomorrow and I have seen a couple around here that others have and noticed all the mud thrown forward from the back tires. I ordered a big sheet of umhw plastic and will be making myself some mud guards in the next few days. Let ya know how it turns out.

Turned out pretty well. I just cut stips of the umhw plastic into 5 stips and started at the front of the bed and worked my way back attaching it with self tapping screws. I used a heat gun for the bends Im the fender well. The. Used a small piece 5 wide and attached it to cover up the gas cap area.
