Body Armour?

Looking for a few pieces of body armour for my 90 yj. When I bought the jeep it already had the side pieces on it, but what I really need/want is the back corner pieces and one for the front grill. I have seen TONS of TJ styles for the back, but it has a hole for the gas tank on the wrong side . Any help would be appreciated!

If you really want you can get the TJ ones and just move your fuel filler to the side and you wont have to wrestle with your license plate whenever you fill up.

I have these (http://www.quadratec.com/products/12515_XXX_PG.htm) in 12-gauge steel. Haven't gotten them installed yet, but they're beefy enough for what I need.

Thanks guys! How hard is it to move the gas filler? I am looking for a diamond plate style, and do NOT want the ones that go the full way around, just enough to cover the corners in the back. Thanks so much for the help so far guys!

When I first bought my yj the one rear corner was dented, and when i pulled it out all the paint cracked. Rather then get corner guards, I took spray on bed liner and did just the corners. I really liked how they came out and it only cost me $5. And the LED lights are just trailer lights from harbor freight $20 a piece.

Went with Genright, myself. Got the full coverage ones as they are certainly armor. Also had future plans on further mods. These plans needed the full coverage corners.
Added home made weld on armor plate flairs, moved the license plate and added led lights.

ive got a set of tj one and moved the gas filler over. All the yj guys will tell you to do the filler relocation a bit lower than the normal tj to avoid the wheel well inside the cab, but if you get the corner guards youll have to put the filler in the stock location and cut into the wheel well.
