    I liked the E&G because it was split so I could still use half of the console normal with the tray and half as a safe. Install of the E&G wasn’t simple but wasn’t hard either. Pretty straight forward. I am very happy with it and wouldn’t change a thing.

    What areas did you cut? Might be obvious once I ha e them but would love some tips before I get started.

    Had to cut the outside lip about 1/2" all the way around. It absolutely just would not fit/tuck in under the fender well without cutting it. Once I did it went in seamlessly and fits great on both wheel wells.

    Awesome info thanks. What tool did you use to trim?

    I used a handheld jigsaw and just went from one end to the other about a 1/2" in all away around the outer lip. It still fits very snugly and still took some effort to get all of the lip tucked into the inner wheel well, but looks and fits great now.

    Started with just a 1/4" but with two of us, we still just couldnt all of the liner lip to fit under, so we took another 1/4" off and then could finally get it tucked in.

    It may be that the wheel liners are not consistent from order to order, but even the installers I know have said they all usually have to shave it down a bit to get them to fit under the lip.

    If that's a concern, wouldn't the front ones do the same?
