@99WJdan, we've discussed having mesh netting as an option, but it will be pretty expensive being a custom order item. If the demand is there in the future, we would definitely look into it.

The release date is a week or two out, we're starting production on them this week.

Here's the rear design for anyone curious. It might get tweaked for fitment, but this is the plan.
Looks good. Excited to see what they look like installed. Any idea on the final price? This will defiantly be my next purchase after tires.

Another little teaser

(tubing location has changed since this pic, but it's the same design)



As Sean (quadratokn) said earlier, prices will be in the mid-high 200s a pair + shipping and ~$20 less for the rear (less tubing).

Specific prices will come when we finish the first batch and have a vendor account.

I like the front ones but the back ones don't flow well with the body lines. the bottom tube on the rear door should curve more.. just my .02

i agree, have that rear door curve to match the body line and I could be in on these. the fronts look great.

It's actually a pretty decent arm rest. If the top bar is any higher is doesn't look right in my opinion.

The rears keep getting re-designed. Wait for Brandon (Gatorayde) to post up more CAD pictures.

Because the WJ has such a sharp curve in the rear door, it's impossible to bend a sharp S curve that looks decent.


Couple options I came up with:
