I'm bringing this thread back from the dead. I'd still like to get dimensions, mounting location and front skid pics if possible. Great looking jeep BTW.

Sorry guys I have not kept up with the posts. I have been trying to get someone to produce these for me to sell. That's why I have been a little hesitant on posting the exact dimensions.

So if anyone has any input on getting these into production that would be great, kind of at a stand still rightnow.......

Im having them sandblasted right now and waiting on a quote for powdercoating. Hope to get newer pics up.

yeah that's like...really awesome...

i like the fact that you maintained the trim....i wondered how that was going to work....because the 4xgaurd ones poke out a bit from the body and you loose the smooth line...

They poke out a bit from the body for protection. They act as a bumper or pivot point off road. If they did not stick out then you would get some serious body damage. After the rocker the body rolls up and out just asking to get whacked! Personally I wish they stuck out an inch farther than they do.

Reviving this thread. If you couldn't get them in production, could you share dimensions? Maybe pics of the front skid?

Alright getting these aren't going into production, I don't "know" anyone to make it work........but I will start posting the pics and dimensions, the pics aren't the best but I think you will get the idea.

As for function I give them 7 out of 10. They need to be wider (easy fix) to really protect from side impacts. As for strait up and done impacts they are pretty good. Had couple really hard impacts with not damage.

I'm sure other people will see flaws in design.

If anyone in the wisconsin area wants (for a price) them, come get them!

In this pic you can see the 6 white dots. those dots match up with the holes that are already in the pinch wield on the bottom of the jeep. I believe these are the holes used for the nasty looking factory rock sliders.

Tip: drill these a little bigger to allow for movement when mounting.
