I used the shopping tab. I'm pretty sure there is another brand out there, but I couldn't find it.

Anyone know if the armor fits with the doors on? Only pictures I could find don't have the doors on.

Genright is the only one that is making them as far as I know. I own a set. I put the first set on and had a hiccup. They sent me a new set. I've yet to put them back on yet, been too busy with other stuff. Watch drilling those top holes. Don't get crazy. Let the screws provided do the work otherwise they'll pull out.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I have them on my TJ, they fit with full and half/soft uppers.

Hint: Put them on before you flop it on it's side and crush the frame




Yes, I did

Too late... lol.... now I'm searching. GenRight appears to have stopped making them, it's inactive on their website.... Just an update.

bumping an old thread but we were just talking about this on another forum.

nolimits4x4 makes them as well. They're cheaper than genright, and have a light tab to boot.

I've hit my windshield sides a few times already against trees... what I'd be concerned about is hitting the windshield sides, the "armor" not allowing any give and then shattering/cracking the hell out of the windshield glass.


Who has bought these windshield side armor pieces and actually USED them... little tree branch scratches don't count.

I flopped my Jeep four years ago and bashed in the frame pretty good, and then I put the armor on. You can see in the pic below that even after the flop the windshield is not cracked. Since then it has taken more than few hard hits to the point where the armor on the passenger side is bent.



This last Saturday I was running a new trail in the desert and came off a rock and hit hard on the drivers side rocker slider/guard. Hard enough that I not only hurt my back (in suspension seats no less) but completely broke the windshield. It was a big rock

Point is, after four years of hard hits on the windshield armor, and a good flop onto the pillar before the armor was installed, it was the hit that flexed the windshield frame itself that caused the damage.

The armor is a nice way to cover up the existing damage in my case, and prevent some dents and dings to the pillars, but if the frame of the windshield, or the Jeep itself, hits hard enough to flex the windshield frame the armor will do nothing to stop it.

Nice to know. I personally now think the armor is a good idea- even if the only benefit is the future cost savings of repair. I can get a windshield replaced for $100 all day long, but I sure cant find a windshield frame replaced for that amount.
