Angry Flimsy front wheel well liners.

I hate the flimsy front wheel well liners on my EXPRESS. Do any other models come with heavier duty liners? Maybe 4x4 ?

Nope, 4x4 has flimsy also, I was going to see about those this spring, I hate the fact that the top of the shock is exposed to the elements, salt, water, and other junk piles up on top of the mount and will rust the crap out of them, I was thinking of attaching a rubber piece to the liner and having it drape down in front of the shock tower to help keep shit out of there. If anyone has seen anything that can do it please chime in.

Nope, they're all crap. Easier to damage than you think too so always be careful when peeling them back.

Great idea though! I would like to better support the Headlight Access Door, that seems to hang a bit on many I have seen including mine.

I have thought about removing mine and rhino lining them. I think If I prep them right that they should hold up, and that would add some heft to them.

I love the factory liners, but that's because they're easy for me to take out and get access to the exhaust manifolds.

I don't think the wheel wells in my 2008 were that flimsy. I wonder if I could swap.

Rhino lining sounds like a great idea.
