Hey Silver 08',

I think the full front guard looks awesome also the rear bumper and the tail light guards. I could of used it when some jerk off contractor in van decided to turn into me during traffic and skimmed the front fender of my Jeep. For the front, if you have tow hooks installed in the front do you have to remove them to get the bar in?

According to the installation instructions, yes you do. However, my KK did not have them to begin with, so I couldn't try to install them with the bar.
I believe it's a matter of how the bar is mounted. It uses a plate that slides into the lower radiator support, and my guess is that the bolts used to mount the guard are a different size as the ones used for the tow hooks.

Thanks for the info, I was wondering can you mount a winch and/or light on the front bar?

Yes, at least with the lights. There are 2 pre-drilled holes in the bar, with plugs in them.

I did a search for those tail light guards and came up empty. Maybe its me getting senile but i'm at a loss.

Also thinking about finally putting a hitch receiver on, what kind of drop should I look at for the hitch? Different ones are showing through Mopar. Thanks.

You know of course body shops love those kinds of "protection" They cause more damage so they make more money !

Received and installed my tail light guards today. Ordered from CarID. Took over a month to get - made to order they said?

Anyway it took longer to unpack than it did to install them. Only issue is that on the driver's side guard, lower bracket, the top edge rubs on the edge of the hatch when closing. Any ideas? Only thing I can think of is maybe just grind down that part of the bracket a little.

I used a rubber mallet, and did some "adjusting" to it on mine because I had the same problem.

Are there different company's making the tail light guards or just one on CarID? I'm interested in ordering some too.

The only company I can find making them is BlackHorse. CarID sells their products. My taillight guards, rear bumper bar, need bars, and push bar are all BlackHorse.

I bought mine from CarID but they're made by Steelcraft. Here's a copy of the packing list. With shipping and all it came to $115. Shipping to Alaska, go figure.

With all the mods I'd like to do I've got to do budget planning well in advance. Living on a fixed retirement income sucks, especially when it comes to "toys."

Did you just do the "adjusting" on the part rubbing? Looks like I should adjust that part inward some.

I wonder if these would have even saved my tail light when I busted it mudding on the weekend. I guess I probably would be out a tail light guard but still not have a cracked tail light housing!

Finally got some pics of the guards installed. They seem pretty sturdy.
