Rear Fender Liners - Pro's & Con's

Install Plastic Inner Fender Liners or not?

Rear Fender Liners - Pro's & Con's

Postby jepics [OP] » Nov 02 2010, 6:36pm

I had my mechanic undercoat my Sierra last week. He didn't do the inner fenders and didn't recommend the plastic inner fender (wheel well) liners. I was surprised. I figured they would be good up here in snow & salt country.

Looking to hear from people who have experience with the liners. Do they provide pockets for salt & dirt & moisture to hide, or do they protect the wheel well from damage?

Awesome idea for a thread John.
I was considering these rear wheel well liners too.
A friend of mine introduced them to me. He has them on his Sierra and swears by them.
He takes them off once a year to clean and to have the truck under coated. His stock wheel wells look like new.

I may get a set next fall.

I just know they make a ton of difference in the looks of the truck. Makes it look finished.

I have them. It makes the rear wheel well looked finished. I had them put on and then they undercoated the truck. I'm not sure if they coated under the liners or on the liners, but i figured anything that would help protect the metal from all the chemicals they put on the roads during the winter as well as rocks and other things thrown up by the rear tires couldn't be a bad thing.

Just a couple of pics of the liners.

This is an old thread I thought that I'd revive...

A) how these liners holding up.
B) Anyone who doesn't have wheel liners, how is your truck holding up (rust, etc).

My old truck (dodge) was rusting like an 1970s car around the rear wheel wells (it was a 2004), and it did not have liners.
