If you're going to install rear wheel well liners...

If you're going to install rear wheel well liners...

Postby dan61psu [OP] » Jan 10 2012, 2:33am

Save yourself some trouble, and just take the wheels off. You can definitely get the liners in there without doing removing them, but you wont be able to get a drill/driver into the lower self-tapping screw mounts to firmly secure the liners (the last step).

I got the liners on there this weekend, without taking the wheels off, without too much trouble (although the wife's hair dryer helped with some stubborn edges), only to find myself staring at 2 screws that I needed to drive, and no way to drive them in without removing the wheels.

Doh!!

(at least its easy to jack up 4x4 trucks!!!)

I am having linex do my wheel wells when the do my bed. It is only costing me an extra $150.00 at the time they do my bed. A little cheaper then those plastic liners and I think it will last longer too!

Other than being cheap. Why doesn't GM make these available? Is there reason not to have them?

They are available from GM, its just they are not standard equipment on the trucks. There are a number of GMC discounters online who sell them.
If you want to do what you want to do, you have to do what you have to do.

I agree, you pretty much have to take the tires off to get all the screws in. I love mine, they really quiet the noise down. I called the same dealer where I got my Line X bed liner and I think he quoted me a price around 200 dollars. However, he told me there were places that he would not be able to get to with the spray so some parts may not be fully protected. That is why I went the the plastic liners.

I paid $110 for my liners from the dealer, installed them in about an hour. i didnt take the wheels off.. jacked up each side slid the liners in put in all the screws with a drill and lowered it and did the other side. I do agree that GM should stop being cheap and put these on all trucks. GM isnt the only brand that doesnt put these on, in fact i have yet to see any other brand of truck that has them in from the factory. I considered the rino/lineX idea but one reason to install anything is to protect the inner fender and the other reason (for me) is to make it easier to clean. Which the liners make it a super fast wipe an go after i wash my rims.

I didn't use the cheesy self tapping mild steel wonders that came with the GM fender liner set I bought and installed. I also had little effort installing them with the wheels on on my 2011 Z71 4X4.Besides the factory screww heads being of borderlined size in relation to the pre-located holes on the liners,the stainless sheet metal fasteners I used had a larger pan head and they don't rust.Just drilled some 1/16" pilot holes once the liner was snapped in and located before installing screws. I also liberally coated the inner fenders with rust protectant before installing. After all ,that's the primary reason for having em' in the first place. They do however hide the busy looking frame work and create a cleaner look as a bonus.

Get yourself a set from the dealer.You won't be sorry. They fit glovelike and are pretty easy to install.Fairly affordable too.I also like that it blanks off the rear frame tubes.
