Has anyone added an aftermarket (rear) wheel liner? I don't know the benefit? Does it make things quieter? Worried it might make it look cheap. I have an Iconic Silver and it would definitely look different. Just not sure what value this upgrade would provide.

There's lots of threads already about this, search is your friend.

I installed the Husky liners, finding benefit both in terms of appearance and ease of cleaning, particularly after driving in wet / muddy conditions. Perhaps it made things 'quieter' when pebbles are thrown out of the tire tread, but that hasn't been something I've particularly noticed.

For me the low-cost mod is worthwhile, YMMV.

How would an item that completes, dresses up, and protects an unsightly exposed underside make an OEM cost cutting deleted feature "look cheap"? Did Husky liner on my '18 and went OEM on my '21. Well worth "cheap mod" investment.

surprised to see your concern about it looking cheap, I think 90% of the reason people usually get them are for aesthetic reasons, followed by keeping dirt & salt off the frame and bed, etc. They're on my To-Do list...

Yes, mostly for supposed "looks". But some owners actually prefer the original factory painted look!

Unless you regularly race down gravel roads (with someone trying to sleep in the bed) :p it is unlikely you're going to hear any difference noise wise.

I expect liners would actually trap road grit and salt that I otherwise can regularly and easily clean off.

I negotiated the liners as part of the purchase terms. Drove me nuts that the truck didn’t have them. No regrets. Cleaning the wheel well took more time than install!

Ford liners were my first upgrade. Looks much better than the factory paint in there.

I had Line-X do the wheel wells first. Then I added the Husky wheel well liners a bit later. Absolutely sold on how well it turned out.

Same as with my 21 and 23 I used the ford points I got buying the truck to get OEM rear wheel well liners. I do regularly bomb down gravel roads but the entire truck is aluminum so I am not concerned about the box rusting. I just like the cleaner and more complete look.

Got a pair of Husky Liners for Xmas, fast and easy install, and they look great on my Oxford White.

What are your thoughts on Husky vs OEM?

Coverage! The Husky comes down further and hides the frame and underside. If you're planning to some suspension upgrades, OEM minimizes cutting up of the liners to fitup.
