Re: Wheel Well material in winter and mud

In the mountain counties here the highway departments use stone dust to enhance traction on snow and ice. Once the first layer of crud is on there whatever comes next will just stick onto the first layer.

I never saw all the melting crud in my garage as something that could be reduced, just managed. When I built my garage I sloped the last ten feet towards the door so the water drains out. Every few weeks I use a transfer shovel and get most of it off the floor, and in the spring I broom the rest then wash the floor.

I have a neighbor who put a beautiful epoxy finish on his floor, and now to keep it clean he doesn't park in the garage. Yeah, my floor looks like hell compared to his but my truck is warm in the morning with no snow on it.

Re: Wheel Well material in winter and mud

You may be all right at how you decribe the felt fender liners. Jeep/Chrysler has brobably more than one supplier for the fender liners. They show 4 part numbers for the 4 liners, but different manufacturers would produce slightly different liners that than behave different. I live in the south, so no snow, when drive in the garage after driving the rain my liners drip about 2 quarts of water on the floor (just from the liners not from the AC or the body). I do not see much about it, that lets me to believe they are using more than one manufacturer.

Re: Wheel Well material in winter and mud

I've used the Clean Park garage mat (the heavy duty version) since last November. It contains everything that melts/drips off the vehicle, giving it time to evaporate without running all over the garage floor.

Living in the Cascades of Washington State, we get a lot of rain and snow. So far so good with the mat. Too early to tell about durability but it seems to be holding up well and I have yet to find a better alternative.

Re: Wheel Well material in winter and mud

I'd never order anything from a website with such poor writing and English skills exhibited in full force like that.

It wasn't a website review, it was a product review. The website is the manufacturer's website, and yes, it pretty much sucks. But their garage mat doesn't, it works well for containing snow melt, etc.

The product is widely available from a number of reseller sites. Also available directly from Amazon.

I am in no way affiliated with the companies mentioned, just offering a solution that worked for me to keep water/slush contained in the garage.

Re: Wheel Well material in winter and mud

Hi, Have the new GJC Diesel and live up in Whistler BC Canada. The snow here is often very wet and repeatedly melts and freezes. We are having similar problems with the wheel wells accumulating snow. To the extent that we have to stop every so often to clear front wheel wells as turning becoming an issue if we donít. Any ideas greatly welcomed.

So that's where the water is coming from !!!

Even on warm days with melting snow (where nothing is sticking to Jeep) I was surprised how much water I'd see in the garage a few hours later or the next morning. Where did that all come from?

Good observation.

Also SOME snow storms (half maybe) snow sticks badly to the wheel wells. Others it does not.

Unfortunately I dread when it snows because the Jeep sometimes makes such a freaken mess in the garage.

And you can't brush it off. It's on like cement.

If Jeep smartens up and changes this material. I will get new wheel wells.

I wonder if the new Never Wet product would work in the wheel wells? Seems like a perfect application. Don't know how long it would last in such extreme service, but seems like the best option so far.
