No... they made some changes in 2009 but there are still instances on 2010's and they didn't change anything about the fenders/aprons for 2011 so I'd say it will still show up on certain rigs depending on the type of conditions they see. This isn't a huge issue and seems to show up only on rigs that get driven hard. Real Hard.

I remember it was a big issue with the 07s and early 08 models. Did they change a lot for 2011?

I've heard of many people with this problem, I don't have it (at least yet). It is my understanding that it is very unsightly, but at the end of the day not really an issue.
For those who don't know what they look like, here's a few pictures. Courtesy of somebody else. Thanks, whomever you are.

Buldge

You did, you parents hid her from you, in fear of what you might do to her.

Yeah, I know. She used to have your mom come over all the time, so I could "hide" my dick. Zing!
