Default Spray wheel wells or buy plastic inserts?

Walking up to my truck today I realized how ugly the wheel wells look in broad daylight. What do you guys recommend?

I was thinking about spraying them but it seems like one of these liners may be the best bet? It's a 2010 FX2 Supercab.

Would you still spray it and then install the liner?

Husky $92

Penda $83

Ford $128

Rugged Liner $85

No brainer for me, spraying/painting will look a little better but you will still have that gap between the bed and frame, I put in Ford wheel well liners.

Before and after...

I did the Ford liners when the truck was new. I really think they clean up the look and were super easy to install.

You can paint or spray with bed liner, but don't use the "rattle can" version as you will be re-spraying every year to keep it looking decent.

If you put in the liners, clean up the wheel wells really good and then spray with a rust preventative like Krown.

Thanks guys. That looks way better. Definitely going to get liners, and will spray with a rust preventative.

They all have good reviews but OEM Ford is probably the way to go, albeit theyre $50 more. Hard to believe these aren't standard equipment.

Skip the Ford OEM. Get the Rugged brand at only $84 on Amazon. Or Husky for $96.

Use the money saved to get the DeeZee tailgate assist.

Buddy installed the Husky's and is very happy with them. They do cover more too.

However, if you go to a dealer and ask, they will usually knock off 20% without much arm twisting.

Go with the liners for sure. I have the FoMoCo ones and very happy with them.

Decided to get Rugged for $87 shipped. Saves me $40 and they seem pretty desirable reading reviews. Same if not better than OEM.

SteveLord, I have that tailgate assist and it's wonderful.
