HankMurphy, you are 100% correct. I let my own desire blind me and I (unintentionally) hijacked this thread. Sorry about that. I had it set it my mind that VBigFord20 wanted the wheel well gap guards. Doh! I feel, well, odd as I try not to do such things. I humbly stand corrected and/or put in my place.

Well, let's not go overboard... )

I am pretty interested in the gap guards myself. It's a shame that Cabelas didnt have them at all, let alone on sale.

Have you found any other sources?

Nope ... just the two that you and I listed. Of course, I'd really like to see a picture of them. I contacted a forum user who had them (assuming he still had his truck), but he has since gotten rid of his ride. He said they worked/looked great, but didnt' have any pictures of the wheel well gap guards installed. Do they just cover the portion behind the wheel or do they also cover the well (metal) already there above the wheel? If they don't cover the whole thing, then I'll have to spray the wheel well with black coating, etc. And if I'm doing that, then I (personally) don't have much use for the gap guards at that point. Hmmmmm....

Amen Hank, talk about getting sidetracked.

If you visit the performance accessories web site (assuming you haven't already), click products, then Urethane Gap Guards. I don't think that's an F-150 in the picture, but I imagine they'd do something similar.

Ford really ought to offer fender well liners, even as an option.

As for the black coating...good idea, Herculiner might work. I still think the gap guards will protect the underside of the bed, and look neater in any event.

Of course, your truck is probably cleaner than most of my dishes... )

I was talking about the T-gat gap, but its all good guys!

Once you started in on wheel wells I realised I do not like how unfinished they are on this truck. Then I saw herculiner in one of your posts and the "evil thoughts" light came on.

Now I am considering herking the wheel wells.
