Legally? Yep. Can get stickered for it, though I got pulled over about 5 years ago and the cop ticketed $50 for each missing mudflap. (this was on an XC panelvan though, not a 4x4)

Yes you sure do, they must be the width of the tyre and hang no higher than the centre of the axle, in other words, the bottom of the mudflap needs to be as low as the centre of the axle or lower.;)

if u draw an imaginary line from the center of the lowest point of the tyre at a 45deg angle upwards this is how long ur mudguards need to be.
They also need to be thick enough to cover the entire width of the wheel.

ADR's say off road vehicles mudflaps must be no more than 300mm from the ground or no closer than 100mm to the ground and covering the full width of the tyre.
For cars it's 200mm and no less than 100mm.

Yep. Probably do. But if the wallopers have the inclination to look as well those cars could be yellow stickered.
