I have a 2012 and this weekend going on a trip i noticed a noise on the highway. It ended up being the front inner fender wells blowing back into the tire and rubbing. So now they are all chewed from the tires and I guess I will just end up cutting them back some.

I know if you run wider then stock tires & turn the wheel fully, the rear of the tire will hit the inner fenders near the cab

Ppl have used a heat gun to heat & stretch the plastic so that there is no more rubbing

Seems like a really crappy design. Just going through a big water puddle can push those fenderwells in on top of the tire. Its happend twice now and the plastic is all chewed up and bent out of place. they dont really fit back where they originally did.

Glad I am not the only person with this issue!

I removed my front air damn when the truck was new and thought that was the cause.....

But seems to be a more general issue. I was thinking of somehow making a brace to go between the shield and the bumper somehow to keep it from blowing back....just havent gotten to it.

I was kinda thinking along the same lines but dont have the time to start experimenting with it. If you ever get around to it plz post some pics. I would appreciate it.

I bought my 2011 used and both front fender liners had previous damage.The problem looks to be the attachment of the front at the bumper. There are holes for screws at the bumper but these must just be used on the plastic bumpers. With the metal bumper the liner just slides in between the bumper and a plastic support. This is where the problem is. It can slide out as easy as it slides in.

I used two screws each side with washers and drilled into the plastic support behind the liner. I think hex screws with washer like the other ones holding the liner to the fender would look best but I didn’t have any and used trim screws with fender washers painted black. Mine were a little larger than the factory screw but that was probably better as the larger washer covered up some of the damage the right side liner and would probably hold it in place better.

Picture attached.
