Wheel well liners

I was browsing the internet and came across the reference for rear wheel well liners for 2009 - 2012 F-150's. The pictures l saw closed off the wheel well much like the front wheel wells. I thought they would be a great thing for winter salt buildup. They said that they were designed 4 x 2's aas well as 4 x 4's. They are apparently a Ford part. Part number # BL32-9927886-A .
Has anyone seen these, or had any experience with them?? I was thinking of ordering a pair but wanted to know the any opinions on them.
Thanks.

I know of at least three members on here that are running them, and yes, they look great.

I'd say get 'em.......don't think they're all that pricey from Ford either.

I have them and installed them myself. Real easy to do, first side took about 1/2hr other side took maybe 15 mins. The instructions aren't the best but take your time and a few simple hand tools and you can do it.

I think they are about $150 from your dealer. Now mine aren't very visible anymore.

My rear fenders well's were line-x'd along with the bed. Looks great, and I'm sure fender well will really clean up that area.

I contemplated them because the were reasonably priced for a dealer item, but ended up painting the wheel wells instead. Unless you drive in a area with a lot of gravel or rocks, just paint them and save yourself the money. I used the High-temp Low Gloss paint from Crappy Tire and its held up over a year now with very very minor touch-ups needed.

Painting looks good, but one benefit the wheel liners have is that they clean up that gap that you see between the frame and the bed.

Some folks look at the big picture, some consider the small details.

Depends what look you want for your truck I suppose.

Do they close the gap if the truck is lifted (2.5") as well ? I saw someone on here used lawn edging for this but I like the idea of closing in the whole wheel well better.

A suspension lift I think would be fine but a body lift wouldn't work. I think that this will really be most beneficial in the winter driving as the snow won't have the big corners to pile up in.
