Default Inner fenders...where did they go???

I guess I should ask "when" did they go and why? I had my new 2010 oiled today and there were no inner fenders on the rear. When the rear tailights were removed I could look through and see the rear tire. Is this one of the "Ford has a better idea" things?

Thats weird..... I would def. see if they could put some in if they are missing. I doubt they would cut that part out. After looking at mine and how nasty they get I am pretty sure you will have all kinds of junk getting slung up in your bedside with out them.

Your step side probably has something to do with why you don't have them. Maybe they only came on 4x4's and the Edge or something IDK.

Well.....I guess I will have to make do without them. I wonder if Ford had a reason other than $$$$$. I still have my 1990 sitting here. I can't sell at $750.00 so it will soon go to the metal company. I have wondered if the inners from it would fit? I imagine it would be a major job to add them. Dave

the bedside is probably exactly the same as all the previous years. Head to the junk yard and rip some out of another truck. I don't think it would be that hard to add and they probably would cost close to nothing if you were to get your hands on some.

My '98 has them if you want to call them that. They are just strips of rubber that sort of fill the gaps. Piss poor in my opinion but what ya gonna do...

look at the back of the inner fender and see if you see any holes for push pins. Should be two holes. Well there should be a splashshield. aka mud spat. The bottom of it would have been secured with the bolt that runs through the mud flap hanger rod. The rear splashshield of a Ranger isn't anything like the fronts anyhow. You can probably fabricate a nice pair out of a cheap welcome mat and a few push pins!

I will take another look. I have a friend who does body work and he told me that the truck was batter off without them! I have a hard time believeing that all of the mud/shit/salt and sand are better off up inside rather than against a plastic inner fender.

Some F-series get a rust hole above the wheel opening because the inner fender rubs there and holds dirt/water salt against the steel.

The Ranger inner fenders are quite different. For many years, there were 4 identical flat plastic panels - 2 forward of the rear tire and 2 aft. The forward pair got deleted a few years ago and some or all of the newest Rangers have none. You should be able buy the 4 panels and install them with push pins as on the earlier Rangers. I only have 2 on my 2003 and intend to make another pair using the ones I have as a pattern. Just another thing on "the list".
