    Hey guys,
    I did a wheel well liner push back mod today. Not sure if it's been written up before. It might have been. I figured I would do the details again on what I did anyway . You first remove the two bolts that mount the liner to the bottom of the bumper cover. You then remove the clip that attaches onto the bottom of the bumper and that retains one of the 2 bolts you remove. You then push the liner in to where you want it and mark and drill where your new holes go. You then take the clip and cut the curved end off it. You then reinstall the clip spun around with the cut end facing towards the back of the truck. You won't be able to put the clip back the way originally was but it still works. Reinstall your two bolts and you're done. From the looks of it I gained over an inch. I'm hoping when I put my new wheels on I'm good to go :thumbsup:

    Awesome job! Apparently this is more challenging in 3rd gen Tundras.
