Re: tail light guards

I was thinking about getting some, but they look like they are 1 fits all kinda thing. they don't look like they are just for the JC, if you understand what I'm trying to say. Maybe there are different one out there.

Re: tail light guards

I think for them to look right you have to have a brush guard on the front as well. i think they look out of place with tail light guards only. Just my opinion.

Re: tail light guards

Very true kfbagt,
But is it just me, or do they just look like overly big rectangle guard. I've seen on other vehicles where they are more fit to the light. Maybe I'm going crazy. Talking about brush guards. What do you guys think about this? http://www.autotrucktoys.com/jeep_co...2542C3331.aspx

I dunno, it looks just like those cheesy brush gaurds that everyone puts on their in-town SUVs. Not very masucline looking to me =)

I can't wait for some real after-market bumpers, was looking at getting some custom ones made ala the "commander to the rescue" ones by wyotech, but, sheesh, I'm not sure I'm ready to spend a few times what a normal aftermarket steel bumper would cost. (To be honest, I haven't called the guy to price it, but I've never heard of cheap custom fab'ing. At least, not a job that would hold up very long.)

Speaking of wyotech, and that project, I'm wondering if they saved the designs for that bumper, and can replicate it -- or if they just winged it.

Re: tail light guards

Well keep us informed. Cause That was the best one I've seen for the JC yet. The others I've seen stick out like tusks on a rhino.

Re: tail light guards

i plan on getting a brush guard as soon as I can find one I like. I wouldnt put the tail guards until after. I just was wondering if there was a solid tail guard out yet. I want it to fit well if I put one on. 4xguard.com had a brush guard I liked but its only for the cherokee. I called them up and they are talking about making one for the commander but that is about as far as they have gotten.

Re: tail light guards

I saw that mopar had ones that seem like that fit perfectly, but it says available soon. Does anyone have any idea what the release date is for these?

Re: tail light guards

Donutz, I saw the Mopar brochure early last spring, been trying ever since. Nobody knows "nuthin'". Tried for Mannik guards off eBay but that died since they couldn't supply 'em to the dealer involved. And, I never was quite sure just what they'd look like. I thought the ones in the brochure would be ok.

Funny you asked that, just today I was reading the magazine, ORA, who did that Commander To The Rescue series build-up....and some guy wrote in asking if Wyotech had the plans for that bumper. Here is the response...

"...there are no plans, that I know of at least. Wyotech students mocked-up the prototype template with the cardboard and wire as you saw in the article, then cut the pieces out of metal and welded them up. We're pretty sure the template is in the recyle bin at this point, or more likely, bailed up and already on its way to China."
