Corner Armor Without Fuel Hole

Does anyone know if anyone makes a rear 2 door corner armor that does NOT have the hole on the driver side for the fuel filler? Id hate to have to cut out circle chunk of metal weld it in then grind it flush to eliminate it. Id prefer the corner also goes from the rear and cover the whole rear quarter panel. I cant seem to find any.

Not until we run on air....lol

Call one and ask they just need to eliminate that action from the cutter. Don't know that they will but filling it in and grinding is quick enough.

You can probably get a set though....it would be on one of the upcoming production runs. Might hit you with a 1 off price for removing it from the batch ....

Have your local steel supplier cut you one and turn it to the exact radius of the corner on the jeep.

I priced out aluminum and it was cheaper blanked than the steel smittybilt was off the shelf for my yj.

I was just debating that, minus the rolling. I was trying to think how it would look squared away were the bend was. then itd be pretty simple. i can get the steel sheets from my work.

Yj has a single radius jk is compound it has vertical radius as well as horizontal.
That's why poison spyder paid to have a stamp made and the reason the material thickness is limited.

You could square it off or have separate pieces made up and weld a butt joint at the apex joining the two sides.

just looked at those. i dont want mine to look like an evo one though...

http://www.northridge4x4.com/shop/po...teel-14-04-040

this is ideally what i want for the jk. the front of the wheel well is where i want to put my fuel fill at the moment. I would just need one bend on top. I bet it wouldnt be bad.

thats essentially how im cutting the body tomorrow.
