On my front wheel wells, the liner looks terrible. Does your stick out like this?

I’m not by my truck but I’ll get you a picture. I can confirm that mine definitely doesn’t look like that

That was a picture of the bumper side of the front wheel well, right? The moulding doesn’t extend down to the bumper. Here is what mine looks like where it meets the bumper:

It happens occasionally on mine....the wind or bumps in the road will push it back slightly. Simply tuck it back under the front bumper lip and you're good to go.
 
It should be behind the metal lip. These liners fit like shit compared to my previous rigs. If you loosen the many liner screws you can reposition the liner and get a better fit.

After I trimmed my front bumper. One side stuck out a little. I ended up putting two screws in each side to secure them to the black plastic support. You can get the same style fasteners at the auto store. Use a 1/16 the drill bit and don't overtighten them. Looks same as others and hold liner firmly in place.
 
Good sticky piece of 3M velco on the back side of the arch should help

Until the next deep mud hole 🤣. I think what happens with mine is that they get wet from a car wash or from four wheeling somewhere with water, then in the extreme heat here in Vegas they dry out and shrink and about 1/8 of an inch pops out from under the plastic trim on one corner. It only seems to happen right at the 90° corner.

Yup, should hold, just use the hooked part to grab the felt of the liner.

The heat makes them shrink? Maybe the heat makes the liners more pliable and they are able to pop out easier. It gets to -40C where I live in the winter and little rattles start to appear on some vehicles interiors as tolerances open up.
 
Here's a couple pictures of the wheel well liners where I installed a couple extra fasteners. This is the way to secure the loose wheel well liner.
