Front Rear Wheel Well Guard...Is there such a thing?
 
Hey guys, I've been working on a project site, and let's just say I have been doing a sh1tton more offroading than I had originally planned for my Jeep.

I am a stickler for keeping my Jeep as clean as I can, but in front of my rear wheel there is a small pocket within the wheel well right behind the fiberglass door on the bottom. This pocket tends to just get jam-packed full of mud and debris from my jobsite.

IS there something I can buy, like a front rear wheel well guard I can attach there to prevent anything from packing in?

If anyone is unfamiliar with the spot, I can get a picture eventually.

rivets are not shown in the picture.

I believe some members have bought these already, so maybe they can speak up.

yes, one rivet goes through the openning on the part and the side skirt

GREAT FIND!!! I had asked about these a while ago when I bought my headlight covers (stock piece they eliminated in 08) but totally forgot until I washed my Jeep on Monday haha...anyone know what size rivet is needed??

1/4" Nylon Blind Rivets 5/32"-13/32" Grip

put some silicone around the edges to keep it from becoming a dirt trap.

last question, i am thinking the rivets needed for the wheel well spash shield install are the same type/size of rivets that are used to hold the plastic piece to the back of the wheel well behind the rear tire on either side, right?
