I haven't done it yet, but I was thinking of getting some rubber matting and cutting it to fit. I have no idea where to get the rubber mat, but I'm sure you could find it if you looked. I haven't looked lately - too many other projects right now.

You could try using rubber from oversize tire tubes. Ive seen liners done with tractor trailer tire tubes.

Another option is to use 1/8" or smaller sheets of hdpe (plastic). You can use a heat gun or hairdryer to heat and shape the pieces to the desired shape and they will remain that way after they cool.

I believe it was Doc14 who did this with thicker sheets to make boatside style protection.

Used to see it quite often on some yota forums.

Lots of people in the North like them due to road salt/ sand / calcium chloride and other shit they put on the roads that eat parts in the winter time.

Two very good reasons to keep them.
Removing the liners may impede air flow through the radiator, too.

I know I recently saw a company that was selling metal ones that would screw in, but I cant remember the name of the company. Looking at them it didn't seem like it would be to hard to make some out of some thin gauge sheet metal or some aluminum. If I come across the website Ill link it here.

Found it, Metal Cloak.com

I run a lot of mud, so I'm definitely keeping my liners in. If the metal doesn't work out, I bet you could find liners at a junkyard from another truck/SUV that would be a close enough fit or could be trimmed to fit. Or you could just cut pieces of them out to patch your cut fenders.

WOW!!! I have been out there all day long. I did not like the way it turned out,it had a lot of sharp edges. Like I said before no metal working skills. I started out with cardborad and made a teplet,that worked out good. When I transfered it to the metal and put it on the JK I did not like it at all. I cut the old inner fender to where I could use it so I am back to square one for now.. Sorry I could not make it turn out the way it looked in my head. I gave it a valiant effort

Metal work just takes practice, Ive been doing it since I was 14 or so and Im still not that great at it.
This makes me want to go get some sheet metal and see what I can come up with.

Just keep working at it. No one is an expert the first time they try something.
Good luck guy.

CO4LO made his. He used sheets of heat moldable plastic and lots of templates. Check his build thread. I have been planning to carve up my stock bumpers to fill in some spots but have been finding other things to do. Not real high on my list since Gorilla Tape layered over the open spots works pretty well and when covered in dirt looks just like the rest of Lucy.

I made a set out of aluminum sheet for my old Bronco. I then coated them with the rubber spray on underlining. Kept them quiet. Ditto on keeping them unless you live in a very dry climate.

And they keep cold water and mud off of hot cast steel headers... Water (cold)+ weak steel (hot)= cracks in header
