I bought the rubber liner splash guards. No regrets. You're promoting rust in a costly area otherwise.
That and more "water" and worse gets on the engine belt(s) and pulleys making belt(s) to slip etc.
dry dirt gets in, gets wet and stay wet for hours to days will cause more rust then driving in a few days on wet weather.
Cradle etc have many opening that will collect dry dirt and missing "mud flaps" only allows more crap getting in.
Worse, Dry dirt have salt and other chemicals activated by humidity, not just driving on a bad day.
Salt can/will stay on road months after winter and in many areas never go away. Is why you see salt happy grasses/plant near many roads like snake grass.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
