Inner Fender?

Has anyone else noticed after a nice rain the inner fenders on the '14s soak in a lot of water? Got home the first day of owning it..in light rain ;( and noticed that a lot of water on the ground after parking it for a while, and the roads were barely even wet. Any thoughts? Is it from all the sound deadening?

When I was washing truck yesterday I was cleaning wheel wells and noticed that the liners seem to soak up the water.

Re: Inner Fender?

I have noticed the same as well on my Jeep. Drove in the rain a good bit yesterday and I come out a few hours later and there is a lot of water on the ground. This has to be from the felt lined wheel wells.

That's where the water came from . Those felt wheel well liners are good for absorbing sound and soaking up water.

Re: Inner Fender?

Is it just me or does the felt liners just really dirty as well? Seems to hold the dirt a lot.
