Need Help picking rear corner guards

I have a LJ and I backed into a tree satuday I'M getting the dent fixed--but I want some corner protection and LED taillights.

After searching the net and several catalogs I'M not sure which ones to get, I think I just want the "shorty ones" Does anyone have any suggestions? and are the short corner guards the same for a TJ as well as a LJ?

Thanks for any suggestions and I would like to see some pictures of different corner guards.

If you are going to put on corner guards then don't bother spending the money to fix the damage. When you get the corners just beat out the damage so that it fits and bolt them on. As for shorts or longs that would depend on what your long term goals are and of course money. Not sure if the shorties are the same for the LJ or not but you can check on any of the manufacturer's sites and it will say. Robert

Im planning on getting a set of Rokmen full corners for my LJ in the near future but they also offer shorties as well. Im just a big fan of their products in general!

I did the exact same thing to my LJ. I ordered corner guards from gen-right off road they are a quality company. The LJ corner guards are larger than a standard TJ guard. I suggest ordering them straight from gen-right. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Thanks, I think Gen-Right looks like the one's to order so far. Did you go ahead and install Led lights? Can you post any pics of your Jeep?

I'M not going to fully repair the corner, just going to have the dent taken out and install the covers.

Thanks for the replys

Rokmens are the ones to order for the shortys! They go completely under the tailgate hinges.By far superior!They don't go around the hinges.

I chose the corner guards from Warrior. I called the company and spoke to the rep there and was not all that impressed. They seemed ill responsive to the questions / comments and inquiries.

The product has been great so far. I guess that is the true testament to Warrior's quality.

I was down at Rokmen's shop a few months ago getting a gas tank skid and talked to one of the guys there for a while. He said that shorty's are fine for most people. Unless you are doing a lot of hard core wheeling, you don't really need the full guards other than for looks.

I think my tailgate hinges are pretty well protected by the bumper and spare tire carrier, but the corners weren't protected at all--due to my poor choice of a bumper and tire carrier!

I do like the idea of the light weight alum. but I was worried about prepping the alum. for paint and the added expense.

Thanks again for everyone's advice and help.
