I am getting a new truck, a 2011 Chevy D/A 3500 HD. I was looking at optional accessories and one of them was wheel house liners for the rear wheel wells. My question is what do you all think of them. Do they look good, are they helpful in keeping the mud etc from getting caked on the under belly? Or do they look goofy and don't work so well. If they look goofy I don't want to get them!!!

Also I have read some places they will trap salt and moisture under the liner causing rust. What about that concern.


Thanks

I wish my truck had them

I have lots of paint chips on my rear fender wells from rocks and such

I am going to paint my with a bed liner though.

they look good, makes the rear inner wheel wells match the front.

or you can probably save a few hundred $ and get a can of aerosol bed armor and just paint them black yourself. i've done that to my last four trucks and love it. it just hoses out after mud, snow, etc gets in there. plus it looks SO much better with the black to match the front.

just my .02 though :D

That interesting about the bed armor. There probably is no fear of rust with the spray on bed liner?

I've never worried about mine. Just clean them and prep as you would if you were doing a spray in bed liner and go from there.

I love mine... And have never worried about moisture or rust underneath :D

What color is the truck? IMO they look awesome especially on trucks that aren't black, makes the rear wheel well match the fronts. The bed liner would do the same thing. I plan on getting some for mine just because I find the plastic wheel liner in the front so much easier to clean than the rear wheel wells. any mud and shit just sprays right off the plastic...

I have them on my truck and they are definitely worth it. They look good and they're easy to clean. If you saw one truck with them and one without you would want them, trust me :drink

My truck is lite silver. I think I am going to order them from what you all say. I was looking at the wheel wells on my 08 in the rear and I thought man that would look better with the liners in.

This is an old thread, but does anyone have PN's for the rear wheel house liners? Debating on them myself, or just have it Line-X'd in the spring when I have my bed rails done.

Okay, mind is made up. Factory liners for sure. I'm not worried about corrosion behind them, won't be driving the truck in the winter unless absolutely necessary. Thanks for the pics, smokin!

Honestly it's disappointing that GM didn't include them as a standard option.
