How to Install the Husky Liners Custom Rear Wheel Well Guards on a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


AJ: What's up everybody It's AJ with eTrailer.com. Today we're going to be checking out the Husky Liner wheel guard for our 2020 Chevrolet Silverado. Now this is a great addition to the truck that helps with the overall look but it also protects the wheel well from kicking up any rocks, or mud, or anything like that and it dampens the sound. Let's check it out.It might be kind of hard to see because the color of the truck but you can kind of see the inside of the truck and the frame from here. Adding the cover on will not only cover that up so that you can't see it, give it a cleaner look, but also protect it in the long run. We have one installed on this side just to show you what I was talking about.

Hopefully you can see the overall cleaner look. You can't see the underbody of the truck, so this is going to make sure that's protected. And plus it just looks way nicer.This thermoplastic here is nice and tough too. You can see me punching it and you're hearing it, it's going to hold up against impacts and it's going to stay in place. So as you saw as I hit it it's not shifting back and forth.

This isn't one of those things you're going to have to walk back to the truck, after you've had it on for a year or so, and make sure, "Oh is it lined up And I have to shift it in the right place." It's going to stay in place and it's always going to be there.Another thing that helps hold it in place is its stiff design. As you try and work it in one side you'll find out how it bends a little bit but it doesn't give you a whole lot, which is good. That means it's going to . When you get it in there pop out and stay in place. A lot of trucks just don't even come with wheel well guards anymore.

Yeah, you could take it to the dealership and have them install it but that's going to cost you a little bit extra money. These aren't that bad to install. Let's show you how we did it.Before we get this installed I just want to show you everything it comes with. Here's the wheel guard itself. Make sure you flip it around and check the number on the back, see this one ends in PS, so that's passenger side.

The driver side one will end in DS. So just make sure you're installing the right one on the right side. If you come over here and look at the hardware we have, we have five screws and five clips. And I have a screwdriver and then I have this ratchet just in case this screwdriver doesn't fit in there, but that's all the tools you need to get this installed.Our first step is we're going to add our clips here to these attaching points. Here's one, two, three. You're going to make sure when you go to install it this part that kind of sticks out is going to be the back. That's what the bolt actually screws into, so you want the wider hole in the front. If you can see that. I'm going to try and stay out of your way so you can see but it's kind of a tight fit back here. Just kind of push up on it and it should snap into place. There you go. You heard that snap, and now you can pull on it, and see that it's not going to pop back out.Something I learned while installing the other side is you want to go back through and maybe clean out these holes that still have some remaining plastic in there. I just took the screwdriver, push it through to help get rid of some of that extra plastic and move it out of the way. We're going to go through all the holes and do that.When it comes to installing the wheel guard we're going to try and start at this side and work it in up under this lip. It's going to take a little bit of pressure for you to push it back and in there. You're not going to break this thing, it's going to be fine. Hopefully I can show you exactly what I'm talking about here. Put it up and over the tire to get it to slide up in there first. It looks like this front part went right into place, so now this is where you're going to need to just push back on it a little bit. There we go, I pushed this side in. I'm just going to work my way up.We actually got it pretty spot on. I just had to grab this corner here and push up a little bit more because it just needed to be shifted over, but you can see the metal in all these holes, which means you're really close to getting them all lined up. And this is way more lined up than it was on the other side, so we're just going to have to go through and add each screw, and lightly push on the guard to line up the holes.I'm going to start with this back one. It just needs to be pushed up a little bit. The reason I push it up is so you can see the hole here. There's the hole. That's the clip we added earlier and this is what this is going to screw into. So with that lined up let's get this hand started. Just enough so I know that's going to stay in there. I'm not going to fully tighten this one down yet, I'm going to get the other two in place, that way this can still move around a little bit if we need it to. Now I'm going to come back with a screwdriver and tighten them down. Just go ahead and get them hand tight. No reason to get too crazy with it.For the screws in the it's going to be a little bit different. We're going to want to push the screw through on this side and on the back side kind of screw this no like a nut. That's going to hold it into place, since there's nothing for it to snap onto. Make sure it's lined up with the hole. There we go. Now we'll go inside. So we're going to make sure same, the bigger hole goes towards the screw. I'm just going to kind of turn it here, get it hand tight, and then I'm going to go back on the other side with the screwdriver again.And with that we're done. I'd have to say it was a pretty easy install. I had some difficulties over there on the driver's side. Nothing crazy, but it just took a little bit more to get the liner to line up with the holes. Kind of had to do it one by one. This side it seems like it slid in way easier, and I just kind of did one adjustement, and it all lined up.That pretty much does it for our look at the Husky Liner Wheel Well Guard. I hope this helped.
