Hey folks, we just returned from a week long camping trip. Checked out many state parks and put about 1200 miles on our XC90, towing a vintage travel trailer the whole way.<p>One minor complaint: there are a few new gravel dings in the front of our travel trailer. Presumably from the rear wheels of the XC90 kicking up gravel. I took a look at the mudflap options for the XC90, and the ones from volvo seem kind of small. Not sure if they would really do much other than look kind of sporty.<p>I have noticed that there are plenty of aftermarket options, both cheaper, and they appear to be bigger. <p>Can anybody provide any comment or insights on this?

OEM flaps from here <A HREF="http://vparts.dealerfit.com/store/volvo-xc90-accessories-cat126_139.php" TARGET="_blank">http://vparts.dealerfit.com/st...9.php</A> do a fine job. Not sure that you would need anything any larger.

Easy install, you can put the front on just by turning the wheels, but the rear you need to remove the wheels. Not easy to do when the 2009 V8 comes with no jack, lol.

All XC90s have a jack. If yours doesn't, it is missing. Take it back to the selling Retailer, it should be placed under warranty.

Do they sell larger rivet guns? Do I need to buy a pneumatic one?
