Production rear wheel well liners for Ford Ranger

Hello everyone,

I bought a 2007 Ranger 2.3L standard and have found a set of Dodge rear wheel well inserts that happen to fit the truck. I wasted over a day trying to make a set, and as much time taking exacting measurements which made me realize the production inserts would be a close fit. They are a perfect fit as you can see in the two attached photos.

The order number is "82207367AB Liner Kit" for a Dodge Ram. I paid CDN$114 for the pair, plus tax.

You still need to figure out how to mount them. I support them vertically using a custom welded bracket with stainless steel bolt.At either end I use zip ties to truck struts. To remove the wheel well I cut two zip ties and undo one stainless self locking nut. In this way I made no modifications, not even a drill hole, to the truck.

I had to trim the insert in one spot where it might rub against the axle U bolt.

The Ranger, as is, is designed to allow the box to rot from salt, slush and sand I see in winter and I love to beat the system. I joined mainly just to alert others to my discovery.

All the best,
Andre.

Thanks for the welcome.
The photos were from installation in progress. I've added flaps to rear side since. I'm not as wild as other members and the tires (225/70/R15) have plenty of gap/margin relative to the liner. Offroad I stick with my KLR650.
My previous truck ('89 C1500) has me lasted 16 years because I oiled sprayed it twice a year ( cost me ~$10/spray and an 90 minutes), and I've worked out that parts, labour (other than mine), and initial purchase totaled $17500. It is still rust free and happy to burn lots of fuel. No reason I can't make this truck last 20 years and fighting rust is a big part of that. I had enough rusty vehicles as a kid so I have a odd truck pride: I don't want to drive or work anything rusty. ...and I love the Ranger's non-electric windows!

'09 Ranger XL rear wheel well liners

After having no success in finding rr wheel well liners and knowing that if I didn't, I would eventually lose the rr leaf spring shackle mounts, I ran across a set of plastic wheel liners from an '01 Dodge Durango. They fit almost perfectly to my surprise. I attached them by extending 6" long 3/8" bolts from the frame on each side from to respective, predrilled frame locations, drilled two holes in the liners, washered them and snugged them down with 3/8" nuts and I was finished. I found the wheel liners in a U-Pull yard and paid about $10 for the pair. This exercise was very satisfying since I now know salt, snow, and slush won't be slung to the front and rear of the undercarriage. Thought others might like to know of this remedy.
