Plastic lining in tire well

I just bought a Wrangler Unlimited and love it. Love the way (and how easy it is) to customize it. But I'm surprised how fragile the plastic lining is in the tire wells. My 2-week old car was making some noise while driving. I looked in the passenger tire well and one of the plastic fasteners was halfway out. I can't imagine the plastic lining will last too long. Do others have this problem?

welcome to the forum!

did you buy used? or new?

if used, might have been popped out from previous owner. i have a 2007 and never had an issue with it.

Yours just wasn't attached completely !!

I've hacked the hell out of mine to install the Bushwacker "Flares" and it's hanging in there after a year of storm/off-road/tire contact !!

It's actually very strong and can also wear through your brake lines at the front/back frame--if there's a contact point (jeep TBS)

Take the jeep back-have them rescrew () it !!

I tore mine out while installing the lift. I busted it up pretty good, splitting every single one of those rivet/screw plastic cheap PITA things. it sucked lol

you could just remove them. I'm not sure, but I remember reading somewhere they're kinda pricey to replace.
