Corner Armor or Full Corner Armor??

After slightly damaging the side of my jeep towards the rear driver side (basically I after my rear tire passed a tree, the rear slid into the tree causing minor body damage), I decide it is time to get some Corner Armor.

So before making the purchase for corner armor, I wanted to get feedback regarding what is the proper amount of protection??

Corner amor or Full Corner Armor, which might be over kill for the level of wheeling I do??

Pic's, storys, did armor save your tub from body damage??

Thanks!

I never thought I'd really "NEED" full corner armor, but when I flopped, the entire weight was on my corners.

Toys by Troy corner armor with side sliders supported the entire weight and when upright, the only damage was to windshield frame, cowl, and hood.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

dont make the mistake i did, i bought the short corner armor, ended up going full corner armor. spent twice the amount for the end result. ive hit many, many trees, its also nice going into the grocery store knowing that if someone hits my jeep with their door or shopping cart it wont hurt the jeep at all

dang I was just about to get the super short corners from quadratec, the ones that only come up about 5 inches (until I saw this). Personally I want the aluminum ones so I don't add too much more weight to my ride.

my short corner arm saved my sides in this pic (drug the corner for 3+ feetwhile being winched up), but i got a smokin deal on them used... if i had the money i would go for full corner protection for the reasons already stated
