Ford F-350 Fender

Three Things You Can Do to Maintain Your Ford F-350 Fender

With its tow/haul mode, best-in-class maximum towing capability, best-in-class engine horsepower, and many other features, the Ford F-350 is, no doubt, a very capable, well-equipped workhorse. But just because it is a certified beast doesn't mean it needs less of your attention. In fact, the more you use it for rugged and heavy-duty tasks, the more you have to maintain and take good care of it. When it comes to your Ford F-350 fender, here are some ways on how you can make it last long:

  • Always wash your truck especially after serious off-roading.

To maintain the good looks and integrity of your F-350, and to keep its components away from corrosive elements, you have to keep it clean and wash it especially after off-roading or after passing over roads coated with road salt during winter. If you still don't have time to do a thorough car wash, then at least spare a few minutes hosing mud and filth off the fenders to prevent them from hardening and becoming a pain to remove.

  • Don't overlook the inner fender wells.

When cleaning the fender, make sure you won't overlook the inner panel and fender wells because that's where most of the filth thrown out by the tires land. You can hose off the dirt using high pressure garden hose and spray with cleaner. Spread the cleaner on the wheel well using a sponge and allow it to penetrate on the dirt before scrubbing them off and rinsing.

  • Deal with surface rust as soon as you can.

If your fender is made up of a material that's prone to rusting, you have to regularly check it for exposed metal where rust could start to build up. And if you notice rust formation, deal with it as soon as you can. Surface rust is easy to eliminate as you simply need to lightly sand it off. You can also scrape off rust using steel wool pad or wire brush. If you don't have commercial cleaner or rust remover at the moment, you can try combining one part lime juice and two parts salt and applying the paste to the rusted area. Then, scrub the rust off using the scrubbing pad. Clean the area with a damp paper towel. It's also wise to provide your fender with a rust-inhibiting wax or polish that's made especially for automobiles. This will protect the fender from rusting in the future.

  • A Few Tips for Faster and Easier Installation of Your New Ford F-350 Fender

    A lot of things can happen while you're towing or off-road driving. And among the components in your Ford F-350 that could easily get damaged should the inevitable happens is its fender. It can get scratches when it hit bushes or rocks while you're passing through narrow and difficult terrain. Also it can get bent when your truck got involved in a head-on collision. Whether it got damaged due to a road mishap or because of rust and unsightly scratches, at one point, you'll need to have your Ford F-350 fender replaced. Should you wish to do the installation all by yourself, here are some things to keep in mind:

    Tip #1: Check the fender for any kind of damage prior to installation.

    This tip is especially important for those who have purchased their replacement fender online. Once your ordered fender has arrived, it pays to take it out of the box or its packaging and inspect it for any kind of shipping and handling damage. By so doing, you'll be able to discern if there's a need to return the item to the merchant. Also check the hardware that comes with the fender (if there's any) and make sure they are of the right number, size, and specs as what you've specified when you made your order.

    Tip #2: Test-fit the fender first before installing and securing it in place.

    Before securing the fender in place, it pays to test-fit it first for you to know if it perfectly fits your ride particularly the area along the hood rails. This will help you avoid any misstep or surprise fitment issues when it's time to attach the fender. Remember that any gap or fitment problem can compromise the fender's integrity and functions, so it pays to make sure that your fender is of perfect fit for your truck before finally attaching it.

    Tip #3: If there's a need for modification, it's best to grind the portion incrementally.

    If during the test-fitting you found out that your new fender necessitates a slight modification to achieve seamless fit, it would be wise to grind the ill-fitting portion incrementally than making the mistake of cutting it at once only to realize that you've taken too much surface away. As much as possible, use light touches when grinding the excess ill-fitting part of your fender.
