    Hey guys my first post here. I just bought a 2019 SCREW in white. Anyone installed the Husky rear wheel arch liners on a 2019? The Husky website says they fit 2017-2018 but not 2019? Did anything change in the rear wheel arches for 2019 or did Husky just not update their website?

    Thanks in advance!

    I’m guessing the new shocks may or may not have a different shape than the 18’- versions that might interfere with the current liners.
    I have an 18’ and have the husky liners, one of the first if not the first to install them as a customer. They required a lot of work to make fit, I had to do cutting to the lower front of each side to get them to fit. I talked to Husky about it and saiid they would look into it but never heard back. It was very frustrating, I have no idea how they thought the fit was right because they certainly were not and I’m no amateur to this kind of work as I have designed many vacuum formed parts and custom made plastic shrouds and mud flaps over many years.
    I hope they made the needed changes and fit properly for everyone’s sake that purchases them.

    You will most likely have to modify them just like on the 2017 and 2018 trucks. If you're not afraid of a little work, we'd be happy to get you a set. We're an authorized Husky dealer.

    Thanks guys I am not afraid to trim them as needed. Appreciate the responses.

    It’s lame Husky did not make the needed changes so no trimming is necessary. This being the case I would say that they really don’t make a liner to fit the 17’+ Raptors.
    The trimming required is not obvious and is difficult to know exactly how much and where to make the cuts and you can easily end up with mistakes that don’t look good.

    I bought them for my 2019 and they were not going on well at all. In the process, i decided i didn’t like the way they covered the shocks and couldn’t stand the way they fit. I also didn’t care for the way Ford painted the rear wheel wells so I returned them and had the wells coated in Line-X. I’m very pleased. BTW... there is a lot of info out here on the topic and you will see that some folks love the liners and there are equally as many like me that prefer the Line-X or similar. You will also note that not all Line-X dealers will do wheel wells. Many saved some money and spray their own. Here is mine for reference... note you can see the shocks versus covering up with liners.

    I like the Husky liners once I made them fit properly and they do fit well just have to make adjustments to them that shouldn’t have to be done.
    Yes they block the view of the shocks but do keep crap out of the complicated wheel well area lie mud, rocks, salt and everything else from making a mess of the aluminum structure.

    B4E358F0-7439-46B0-8FD0-56681356E3EB.jpeg Had good luck with the husky liners.....trimmed them to reveal the shocks. Also, used some double sided tape in a couple areas.

    look at local tire or install shops as well. I got mine put on there and they look professional and still show the shocks.

    Much easier than dealing with myself

    I love the look of the shocks and would never want to cover them. That's why I did not go with husky liners when they became available for 2017-18. They are not available for the 19, but the above pic is a great job of making them fit.

    I want linex but called around and all refused. They said the pressure coming out of the hose is so strong it's very tough to do such a small area.
