Tacoma hidden Leaf trap

Was doing a build and noticed a bunch of leaves hidden behind the lower front fender liner..between the fender and body...potential rust trap. If you park near trees you should check this area out!!!!

Yup... been a few threads on it, but it always bears reposting.

In front of the doors, there's a black plastic flap.
Lift the flap and you'll find the crap that's fallen down there.

You can also access it from behind the mudflaps (or black boxes).

Adding some mesh under the cowling will help prevent this.

There really is no fix..just have to clean it out every so often..or like rich said, use some mesh..it will help.

If you trim flares and liner it opens this area, makes it much easier to clean.

Ya... might want to avoid pulling on that flap or dismounting the mudflaps/black boxes when it's that cold.

I found out the hard way what happens when you toss a traffic cone off the back of a truck when it's +15^f.
