Interior plastic covers for the wheel wells

Looking for some information about the plastic covers for the wheel wells on the inside of the cargo vans ?

Mainly looking for pictures of how they attach to the side wall and the floor if they are anchored there too? Is there enough room to insulate and sound deaden between the wheel well and the cover itself ?

I can purchase them for $75 per cover but I may need to re make 2 of the side panels in my van to make them fit properly.

I can box them and make them out of wood too and carpet that to match but just kind of weighing my options and was hoping someone may have pictures to share?

Don't mean to aimlessly bump this to the top but it's been a few months and I do have some questions about how these mount to the floor mainly , their durability and how high they sit off the wheel well hump?

Is there enough room to insulate underneath them?

I'm torn with the idea of purchasing them or making contoured boxes over the wheel wells and carpeting them.

Here's the floor I have , with the gap I have in this pre cut wooden floor but I have my doubts the floor was cut this wide with these in mind vs just the huge gap when manufactured.



Any help with anyone who has removed theirs and possibly insulated underneath would be greatly appreciated.

I have scoured pictures here and I know I will have to remake the panel on the wall to fit the added height but where they attach on the wall (in he pictures I've found ) seem like they might be a really tight fit to the wheel well hump.

Yeah I am wanting to know as well. This seems to to be an easy way to get a real nice finish.

I can't believe Ford is charging $150 for the pair!

That is $150 Canadian , wouldn't be surprised if it's a totally different story south of the border.

I'm away from the van for the next month or so, but if i remember correctly my wheel covers had one mounting point on the top center similar to the ones that hold the panels on the walls. And was otherwise held to the floor by the rubber mat laying on top of it.. I was able to put some dynamat underneath and it fit back in no problem. I dont know if it wouldbe possible to put an substantial insulation underneath and still mount it easily.

Hope that helps havent had the wheel covers off in a while..

Great info thanks amclean11 thanks so much. Knowing what I know now ordering all these little plastic pieces separately I would have ordered mine a little differently to get the side step , rear plastic and these liners and just threw the Matt out all together and been better off.

Yeah i didnt really want the load protection package at first but it may turn out to be a quite useful option once i get my conversion going. For templates and temporary walls until i decide on a permanent solution.

Interior plastic covers for the wheel wells

Just an update and maybe some detailed pictures for anyone wanting to order these for their van. Initial surprise was how much sound deadening insulation is on the inside .... Pleasantly surprised.






Another plus is they have slots on the lower lip so even if your floor is in you may ( I was able to for a test fit) slide them in with your floor in place.
