    My rear fenders are very wobbly when I hit any kind of bump and I noticed it's because there is no shroud/liner inside the wheel wells. I'm trying to find the replacement part but can't figure exactly what they're called. Ive found fender liner 4WD right and left and also Apron Assembly 4.0 liter right and left (more expensive) along with 4.0 liter upper rail same thing. Can anyone shed some light on the difference?

    Number 2,3,7 are braces. You are most likely missing one or more of those. Number 14 is a splash guard. It also acts as a support since it ties the bed panel into the actual bed. If you have all 4 of those install your bed panel will not move. Even if you have just 2,3, and 7 the panel shouldn't move.

    So are you saying that 2,3 and 7 are missing? Do you have a pic please?

    If my memory serves me right that is what I am saying. I'll take some pics once I get it back from the shop which will hopefully be tonight. I think whoever had this truck before me beat the living fack out of it. Still runs like a top though.

    After looking under my truck in more detail I noticed that the bracket that mounts to the rear fender was broken off on the driver side and the bracket that is part of the bed on the passenger side was cracked. So rather than bothering to weld on new mounts or to try and fix the fiberglass under the bed I jsut went to home depot and fabbed up two brackets of my own for a total of $8. I may need thicker pieces eventually but this should work for now. I'll post pictures after work.
