Anyone that has wheel well liners notice if engine runs any hotter due to less air flow? Does anyone have access to the old post where someone fabriacted some really nice well liners. He had a very nice write up and pics.
Below are some pictures of the ones I fabricated from 16 gauge stainless steel. You will notice a fan that helps with the heat under the middle seat but I had the inner fenders the first summer without the fan and did not notice any more heat. They are far enough away from the drivetrain to still allow it to breath. The dimple you see that I peened into it on the next to last photo is for the bed dunp latch clearance. They originally cleared but I moved the bed mount back 1" to clear the Rangerware cab and had to make an adjustment.
Hope this helps :
Axeman, here is a photo of the wheel well liners I did a write-up on. Here is the link, http://www.prc-ranger.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11881 . I noticed that in Moab with several other Rangers that my fan seemed to run a little more often than the others with the temps in the 70's. The nice thing about my liners is, all I have to do to remove them is to take 4 wing nuts off of each liner. They store pretty flat, so it is easy to leave them off and just bring them along in case you decide you need them, easy on/easy off.
I made some out of a sheet of PVC material that is used on dirt track race cars. Made patterns cut the pieces out with a band saw, finished the edges on a belt sander and used dzus fasteners for install so I could remove for access to the clutch can. The slick finish lets the dirt and mud slide off and makes it a lot easier to clean. As far as heat, I installed a 12" cooling fan and a louvered panel where the plastic dog house cover is. Going to make some insulated panels for under the seat this week
