I just looked at the passenger side and it is as you’d expect it to be. Let’s see what lame answer they give you. These days it’s usually just made up on the fly.

There has to be a purpose for the gap... But at the same time there are some unused mounting tabs/holes in the area..

Could u imagine spending an afternoon having fun in the mud?? I bet 30 lbs or more would collect back there!!!

My wife promised to love honor and obey...
On second thought you’ll get that call before I get my promise honored, 😆🤦🏼‍♂️

Mine is a 2020 and does have that gap. I didn’t notice it until posted here so no idea if my 2018 had it as well.
Don’t hold your breath awaiting a phone call, in the old days when people were honorable you absolutely would receive a call back. I hope I’m wrong.

Our 17p4x is the same..pretty sure they all have the same weird gap..

I checked mine while washing my truck earlier today and didn't notice much. I went again to recheck it after seeing the pics posted, and I see the gap now, it's about the width of a fist, which I don't know how much crud I imagine will get stuck back there.

I'm honestly not sure it matters. After going offroad, my 2018 pro4x with mudflaps had an insane amount of mud everywhere you can imagine on both sides of the vehicle. So whether that hole is there or not, you're going to get road debris in places up behind that plastic liner. The main reason the liner is there is so that the surface isn't chipped up by rock impacts to expose bare metal and eventually rust. Also keep in mind that there are other trucks like the F-150 that don't even come with wheelwell liners unless you option them...

^^^This. Looked at a co-workers F-150 in the parking lot there. Everything is exposed.

that's crazy but the fords are aluminum now so they don't worry about rusting anymore. i had hoped parts of our trucks were aluminum but judging by the rock chips in the hood, they are still steel

The GM trucks also don't have wheel well liners standard.

And so phone tag commences, don’t miss the next one, I did that once and never was called again without going through the whole thing all over again.

Nissan called. A specialist in TN. He told me that he spoke with internal folks and there is no part missing- it's how it was designed. I asked why it was designed that way and I floated 2 reasons: 1) save a buck on some plastic and 2) some technical reason. He couldn't expand on any of my ideas or anything else. I voiced my concerns on road salt/grime getting in there and causing corrosion down the road and he did say my case would be saved and that it could be referenced in the future.

so that was real helpful.. LOL. I will just keep it open i guess and just hose it out when i wash my truck- i usually hose out wheel wells anyhow so will just focus more on that area when i do.
