2022 Chevy Silverado Rear Wheelhouse Liners Constraint Reduced16
The 2022 model year introduces a model refresh for the Chevy Silverado 1500 light duty pickup, as well as a few changes for the Chevy Silverado HD. Previously, both models were under constraint with regard to rear wheelhouse liners, but now, GM Authority has learned that the feature’s constraint has been reduced.
For those who may be unaware, rear wheelhouse liners (RPO code B1J) were previously unavailable to order on select configurations of the Chevy Silverado 1500 and Chevy Silverado HD due to a supplier issue. Affected models produced between March 21st and April 7th were built without rear wheelhouse liners.
Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the constraint has been lifted for nearly all affected trim levels, starting with April 8th production. That said, rear wheelhouse liners are still unavailable to order on affected Chevy Silverado Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss trim levels.
It’s currently unclear when the rear wheelhouse liners will be fully available again for WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss trims. Customers that purchased a Chevy Silverado affected by the constraint will receive a $140 credit.
With regard to the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, rear wheelhouse liners were available as an optional extra for Work Truck models, but only for Double Cab four-wheel drive and Crew Cab four-wheel drive vehicles, and not for Regular Cab, Double Cab rear-wheel drive, or Crew Cab rear-wheel drive vehicles. The rear wheelhouse liners are also normally optional on Custom and Custom Trail Boss models. For LT, RST, and LT Trail Boss models, the rear wheelhouse liners are normally included and only available with the Protection Package (RPO code PDQ). The feature is also included as standard on ZR2, LTZ, and High Country trims.
With regard to the Chevy Silverado HD, the rear wheelhouse liners are normally not offered for Work Truck or Custom trim levels, but are normally optional on LT trims, included and only available with the Convenience Package (RPO code PCL). The feature is also standard on LTZ and High Country trims for the Chevy Silverado HD.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, and 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. The truck rides on the GM T1 platform and is produced at the GM Silao plant in Mexico, at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, and soon at the GM Oshawa plant in Canada.
Meanwhile, 2022 Chevy Silverado HD is offered with the atmospheric 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine and 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax, while riding on a more capable version of the GM T1 platform and produced at the GM Flint plant in Michigan and GM Oshawa plant in Canada.

Hopefully they can cure the wheel well openings from rusting out. For the price and all the features on trucks hopefully this problem is now cured.
I pour clean motor oil into the bed stake pockets above the rear wheel wells until it drips out in front of and behind the wheel. I do it a couple times per year. It’s messy and you will need to place cardboard on your driveway for a few days. This should keep them from rusting. I do the doors, tailgate, hood, fenders too. My 2012 Silverado is rust free and I live in the Rustbelt.
Protection package, crazy u have to pay extra for this. Every truck model should come with fender wells. Along with a better undercoating they doesn’t rust up after a winter in NY
Nothing crazy about it. You want it pay if not go find something else instead of looking for a handout.
They came standard on my 2018 Colorado. They contribute greatly to the engineering that went into
reducing cabin noise.
First on James at the above comment, it is your busniness of what Ken said, it is, is oppinion Dummy… You are a person who is incapable of speaking 🙁
I’m very, very disappointed with GM, they are rendered only dark colors. This is my third High Country, one blue and the last two cherry red. My saleswoman at Nicol Auto in La Sarre Québec told me that GM no longer made Cherry Gray and Red and also no Micro Ship (puse). So I said NO THANK YOU, I don’t want any other color than Cherry Red and I kept my Sylverado Hihg Country 2018, 6.2 L which I like BUT. Since 2011 I’ve been changing my trucks every three years but this time it’s a BIG NO. I looked at you at Ford and Dodge RAM for my Cherry Red color. To bad so sad GM, you will lose a good customer, very very disappointed with you other GM… You can look in your system and you will see that I am not a liar… I would like to have a followup on my comment and I ask you to answer me ASAP…
Why did GM make you their truck model like the Chevy Nova Montana and Siera truck in Brazil… Is it cheaper to make them in this country’s and once in the USA / Canada you are going to charge us consumers more… And for the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate’s Paldao Wood (wood from a Asia Tree), exterior Trim such as Vader Chrome, 22-inch Whells and GM’s CarbonPro composite Cargo Box, is flown into U.S. from Southeast Asia, pricing starts at $81,790.00 U.S.,. What a bad GM administration… You should give the work to our employers in our two countries USA and Canada, you are not helping our GM economies… You are incompetent…
I am not happy about you GM, you are very bad… 🙁
Hey James what about my comment, Dummy… 🙁
Speak proper English then come talk to me.
Jean-Pierre: I just ordered a 2022 Silverado 2500HD High Country in Cherry Red. It should be here in June. Perhaps it’s not being offered in Canada. Were you depending on what is on the lots, or what Chevrolet has to offer? The dealers are primarily ordering black, white & grey for their inventory as they are easier to sell. That’s ‘if’ they are able to get any trucks right now.
Meanwhile over at “Weathertech” someone is reading this and the call is out, “Design wheel liners for GM trucks!!”. That my friend, it’s how product development starts.
They are made with felt. So there’s a felt shortage?
Has anyone used Ziebart for undercoating, rust protection and/or ceramic paint protection? I just requested an estimate, but I’ve never used them before.
My 2004 Yukon Denali had a paint sealer put on it when it was new and the paint still looks new after 18 years, but I do have a little bit of rust coming through beneath one of the rear doors. I generally keep my vehicles for about 20 years, so this would be an investment in my new truck’s future.
WAIT! WHAT STATE DO YOU LIVE IN… “A little rust on a rear door” after 20 years. In NY, no car last 20 years, period.. I have serious envy.
I’m in MD, just outside of DC. While we don’t get as much snow as you folks do, we still get some each year, and the roads do get salted. I’m retired, and unless this one gets wrecked, this will probably be the last truck I will ever buy, so I want to try to protect it in any way I can. I can’t move to Florida, so I’ve got to look at other options. I’m looking forward to receiving my new Silverado 2500HD High Country in June.
Does anyone know whether the GMT1 Platform is the same for a 2020 as the 2022?
Yes I saw that the rear wheel liners taken off my order along with a couple other things that I ordered.
I have a 2002 Silverado and live in upstate NY, very little rust. Every vehicle I buy I get under coated if I plan to keep long term. Usually I have Ziebart undercoat my cars. I think it’s a pretty good deal being they pressure wash your car on a lift and re coat yearly for around a $100. Most models of my truck are pretty rusty. I do wash her a lot. Daughter has one of my ziebart car that 8 yrs old and still no rust and it hasn’t been back to ziebart in 5 yrs.
I am currently working through this exact issue for my 22 Silverado Custom, no wheel-liners in the rear. How can I go about and receive the credit? Would it come from GM or the dealership?
