These rear tub mud shields are to stop all the mud and road salt getting around the fuel filler neck & fuel tank on (pre Td5`s) and protect the rear outriggers on all newer Defender 90`s, road salt and mud settles on top of the outrigger and causes them to rot away, even galvanized chassis do suffer after a while, they also make cleaning your Land Rover much easier as the mud cant get onto the outrigger and around the rear tub, they also cut down the road noise especially in wet conditions.
They are made from a rigid but still flexible 3mm plastic material in black, the top mounting bracket is made from 2mm galvanised steel and a new Heavy Duty lower tub side stay (equivalent to MUC9220) is supplied to attach the mud shield to, the mud shield can also be removed quite easily if you need to work in that area, they come with all bolts and fixings to fit them.
As you can see in the pictures there is a lot of items in this kit, fitting can be done quite easily.
When fitting our mud shield kits I recommend using Morris K48 Moly Grease on all nuts/bolts and on all the steel and galvanized fittings that bolt to alloy as it acts like a barrier to stop corrosion, if brushed onto the galvanized brackets it will help stop white salt marks that occurs from road salt in wet conditions. Please see HERE for more about this grease.
If you are unsure if you have Square or Stepped rear tub this might help.
Stepped Rear Tub is 2007 on Puma Td4 that have seats in the very back, the step was put in by Land Rover for rear forward facing seats.
Square Rear Tub is all 90’s from the beginning and up to 2007, Puma Td4s 2007 on mainly all commercial style ones, like single cab pic ups and 3 door hard top van style all have square rear tubs.
