When you guys have trimmed away your arches to fit bigger wheels what have you done to refit the inner liners to prevent mud going up through the void.

Any pics?

Yes the same is true of the arch liners because as you cut away the arch on the wing you also cut away the liner fixing holes.

I drilled 4 holes in the bottom of the bumper and 2 holes in the liner, then fed a cable tie up and through the liner and back through the bumper. This holds it away from the wheel. Did this on each side.

I haven't done that myself just yet, but I'm gonna do it in a few weeks hopefully, because I hate how mud and sand gets into every gap. It even comes out between the fender and the headlight!

I've been thinking about this, and have a few ideas already. I'm going to try to use the original inner liners if possible, but I'm prepared to make those liners myself out of some rubber mat if the original liners can't be adapted...

I'll try get some pics when I get them done! :)

The problem there is that the mud competey covers the inner wing etc.

The car is already heavy enough :laugh:

Does any Jimny have rear plastic inner wheel arch liners (above the rear wheels)?

I have never seen one with those. The only exception is a small liner which covers the fuel tank intake hose near the rear right wheel.
However, every Jimny has prepared lips and mounts above the rear wheels for the installation of inner wheel arches.

If rear inner wheel arches do not exist, would there be any argument against cutting those lips and mounts? They just collect mud and grit which is impossible to wash off - only scraped off by hand.

There's no use for them but I suspect that by trimming them you will encourage more rust than just leaving them alone and ensuring you have a good washing regime that includes them. There are no liners there.

This is not a usual rust spot generally anyway so I'd not worry.
