plastic wheel well liners...are they needed

Pulled my flares off today to paint tomorrow and the plastic liners in the wheel wells are cracking and falling apar. Question is...are they needed?

Last jeep was a CJ5...did not have the bells and whistles that my current 89 YJ has.

Also, when I turn my engine off, there is a soft "whirring" noise for a couple of seconds after the key is turned off. Any ideas?????

Thanks

they are not vital to the performance of the jeep, but they protect the wells from getting chipped and dinged and then eventually rusting and rotting.

Take them out and line them with something.

I tossed my liners when I tossed the flares. I just hit it with some spraypaint when it starts getting chips in the paint.(about 3-4 times a year)

You could also rhinoline it which is stronger against rust and rarely chips.

I used rattle-can rubber undercoating. It's a great product, easy to apply (just like spray paint) and holds up well- just remember to shake the can for a few minutes before using or it won't give you the desired effect. I forgot to shake it properly the first time and it came out in spurts and fell off the frame after it dried....
