I'm happy with the abuse it takes.

Alright so I picked up some Savvy corner guards yesterday and want everyones opinion on what color I should have them powdercoated. The choices are:

A) powder coat the corner guards and my sliders to match my dark grey wheels. Gunmetal armor on a blue jeep sounds sweet.
B) powder coat the corner guards and the base plate for the sliders the same blue as the jeep, and then have the actual slider portion black
C) do it all black

That's listed in the order of my preference, but I can't decide!

I went to a powdercoater today. He had a blue that matched perfectly, and a grey that was close enough. But it was too pricey at $700-$800. That's for blue corners, grey slider, and blue backing plate on the slider. I decided on that combo. I'm not a fan of black lately.

Meeeeh due to $ I picked up the same spraypaint I used on the sliders. Rustoleum hammered black. I'm gonna use the money I saved to hopefully repaint my doors to match.

Sneak peak


I put them on today. Easiest installation EVER. They really took their time to ensure a perfect fit. It only took about an hour each side, including removing the flares and tail lights. I took them back off so I can paint them now though.

No I decided the money would be better spent elsewhere.

Got the corners painted and installed.



I used Rustoleum hammered black again, and wetsanded between top coats. It really made a difference in the look and feel of the paint.
