Corner Guards

Hey I never thought that I would like corner guards but I just looked at a buddys jeep unlimited and he had the mopar corner guards with the small rock rail on them-----it looked very good and they were pretty solid. I have always been afraid of the mosture thing getting behind them---his has a rubber gasket on them that might help this but certainly will not prevent it.
Does any one have a set they recommend? Anyone have the rail thing on theirs?


Is there any manufacturer that is thicker than others? Anyone have experience with these? Thanks

a lot of people run PSCs Trail and/or Crusher Corners

the trail ones run ~ $140 cover the corner
the crushers run ~ $280 cover from the corner to the door

Only ones I know of that have bars on them are the Toys by Troy ones. You can see them on Stu's site.

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

I have PSC trail corners and love them. Pretty easy to install if you aren't shy about putting holes in your Jeep. As far as a moisture guard goes you can run a bead of clear silicone and/or paint the corners with a bed liner. I haven't done either yet but I will come this spring when the weather gets a little more dependable.

I siliconed the top and sides, and left the bottoms open. I have Poison Spyder trail corners. They are pretty sturdy.

The powder coating likes to bubble, so I take them off every year to repaint them. There is no rust at all underneath.

I hear you there stogie. A couple of corners on my corners were missing powder coat. I emailed PSC just to let them know of the problem. Not looking for any replacemnt as to me finsh isn't why I got them. I agree with taking them off to paint and clean underneath-especially if you live in a salt area.

I have the TBT side sliders & corners - they aren't small - but they are very solid and offer great protection.

Not to but in on the conversation at hand but i am installing a set of conner guards on my jeep sometime this week and would like to know if running a bead of silicon around the top is nesscary. I am trying not to have moisture build up under them. Or is that something i should not even worry about with them as it should dry before harm is done? Please advise if you could.

I am thinking that silicone on the top is good but I am guessing that leaving the bottom open so any moisture will drain out is probably best.
