    Hello all, I'm at the point in my rebuild that I am looking for front-wheel liners and splash guards. I see that Husky makes a line. But not sure if they offer rear only or replacements for the front as well.

    The information is much appreciated, but I need to correct a misconception of the actual application that my lack of information caused. My Taco is a street prerunner. I did actually add a set of new OE 2016 TRD front springs. So the truck does set up about 1.5" higher than stock. But aside from that the truck is mostly stock. What I am looking for is a high-quality set of standard wheel well liners.

    Any advice on who offers better quality liners? Help would be appreciated.

    Boost, armor, lights, big tires, no savings.
    $550 for inadequate coverage? Does not even cover the gap in the Fender Flare.
    When I cut for 35's I made a set from some plastic sheeting i bought on Amazon.
    Cut tabs out of original fender and bent over for mounting holes.
    Made templates out of cardboard. Cut the plastic to match. Used a heatgun to better mold in place.
    Stainless steel HW. Use some edging material to fill in imperfections, and but against the inside of the flare.
    Time consuming but it works. No loud aluminum getting hit by gravel.

    I thought about using templates to provide to others, make a small batch to see if there is interest as a product.
    Worried the subtle differences would be too much trouble.

    What sort of plastic did you use. I was going to go trolling around Tractor Supply today looking for so plastic, was even thinking about getting mud flaps for a semi.

    I'll revisit the idea this winter.
    All the trucks running totally open wheel wells, how long does it take to get sand blasted through the fire wall?!
    Especially being in the northern climates. I can hose the wheel wells clean real quick.
