Rear wheel well lners

Has anyone added aftermarket rear wheel well liners to their truck ? My buddy just got some for his chevy to see if it helps to slow/prevent rust over the rear tires. Was wondering if it helps to keep winter salt out or if maybe it would trap it in there and make it worse ?

It can help but make sure when you wash the truck to stick the hose above the liner and wash all the crud from up there.

I think they're great and give a finished look to that area - and wish I could use them too however they will not work if you are running SRT10 / 22" wheels .

I purchased factory original rear wheel well liners for my 07' Quad Cab from JEGS, for a lot less money than Dodge wants for a set. I love them, they keep road dirt from getting into the upper part of the fender, and around the back side of the tail lights.

The problem is they go above the sheet metal and the paint still takes direct hits from debris tossed by the tires. They'd look tacky and cobbled on the under side though. I put fender flares on to protect that edge too. I take them off from time to time and clean it out good but at least now it's not taking direct hits to the paint.

There's a nice little mod I did years ago with the rock chips on the fender lips. Dodge has nice 3/4" wide lips for rock impacts and paint chips which sucks for sure. What I did was tape off an arch around the entire fender area and then scuffed the paint on the untapped area and sprayed bed liner on the entire 3/4" wide lip. Looks favtory and to this day is still there no chips at all in it.

I'm running oem 22" from an 06 srt night runner and have had no issues with the factory installed rear liners running a 4.5" drop with both 285 45 22 and 305 40 22 tires.

Sitting flat on the ground how much clearance do you have from the tire to the liner?
Thx
