    Well, I have a 2011 Tacoma, My first truck. I kept it stock for some time. I just had a 2.5'' leveling kit installed, and I had 285/65R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers installed on some new wheels. They cut some of the plastic to make room, but I still rub some on the bottom front fender/bumper area. And the plastic fender wall on the inside seems loose and flaps when I'm driving at highway speeds. How much more could I trim off and how can I secure this inside plastic so it doesn't get caught on something and more so much noise? Has anyone else have this problem or did the guys I have install this to a shotty job?

    I can add some pictures if that would be easier to understand what I'm asking.

    You can trim as much as you want. Trim until it doesnt rub.

    If the fender liner is loose, they probably broke and/or left out some hardware. Look at see what it's missing.
