Savvy Tub Rub Rails **** Spy Photos ****

Blaine has been working on these for a while and since I showed them in another thread and I didn't want to mess the OP thread up. These are the prototypes and we are nearly ready to start producing them. Let me know what you think! Soon to be released!

Most of you know the rear upper area of the tub is always getting smashed as we lean into, backup into, drive into and basically smash that area. These will help protect your top rail and corner by giving you that 1" of buffer. Especially around the corner area. Everyone smashes the channel that secures the soft top bottom edge down. These will help alleviate that problem.

A few features:
  • Stainless Steel Only (aluminum doesn't slide as well)
  • Strengthens Tub
  • Hidden Fasteners
  • Protects around the corner
  • Works with most other corners
  • Smooth edge

Hmm, seems as if that hides all the fasteners through the top of the tub. That should make quite a few people happy that had problems with that.

I actually think that was a by-product of being able to slide on the rail without getting hung up on the rocks.

As Gerald said, they are hidden to not have holes that snag on the rocks, trap mud, and make it difficult to keep rust at bay. The other side is I wanted a method that was both very secure and very adjustable. If you have corners now that have holes within 3/4" to 1" down from the top and any spacing, our adjustable sliding bolts will let you bolt up without having to drill a new set of holes.

You would have to drill a blank tub backer though, but that's just clamp it up and drill through your existing armor holes and then bolt up the rail.

This is true. It would protect the fasteners. Although I was speaking asthetically.
I noticed in the Corner Armor thread that some people had problems with the amount of fasteners used. This may help appeal to them more.
Does this use the same fastening points as the corner armor? The 2 holes look to be in the same position. If so sounds like an extremely easy add on for already savvy customers.

It uses the same front and back holes and the rest are adjustable to any spacing and or quantity within reason.

As I said in the other thread, if these will work with the TNT corners, I'll buy a set.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Thanks! Yes we can use most everyones exisiting holes. One thing about the number of holes.

After watching and experiencing alot of smashed armor we find that you need a lot of fasteners to help keep everything straight. I just recently got lazy and didn't put a couple bolts in my corners and backed into a rock at the exact point where I didn't put the bolts. Well, guess what? Both the corner armor and tub got smashed in opposite directions. I'm positive the damage would not have been as bad it I had taken the time to do it right and add those extra bolts. My bad!

Measure from the top of the corner armor to the center of the mount holes. Post that up and I'll let you know.

And if you don't mind drilling, it doesn't matter. Just pop a row of holes at 7/8" on center down from the top of the armor and mount them up.

Knock 'em out before my average daily temps drop below 70 and I'll take a set. The boss still hasn't noticed the lights.
