4xGuard Rear Guard and Sliders

I searched before posting and found nothing. I am thinking about doing this mod but thought I'd like to see pics of them on the Commander first. Does anyone have any pictures or experience in purchasing and installing the new rear guard 2 and rear sliders from 4xguard on their commander? Thanks in advance.

... So I guess out of the 127 people ( as of today) or so that have viewed my post, none of you have any 4xGuard equipment? I guess that in and of itself answers my question. Anyone like the 4xG equipment they have on the front?

I have the belly guard and I ordered my lift parts from them.
Well, most of them....

I know a number of folks on "another" forum have ordered them.

The other forum that is not named, can not be named. To call it's name
would summon it's wrath.

I plan on ordering more stuff from them. See if you can find posts by Elcid
His father owned the company and he reviewed 4X parts frequently.

Come on now, did you really search? Or are you trying to slip one by us?

cico7,
Thanks for responding. Yes, I saw those by ElCid but all seemed to focus on the front equipment whereas I was looking for specific comment by someone owning the newer rearguard2 in combination with the rear sliders. I will check out the other boards as there may be more info there. Thx.

That rear slider is kind of new so it doesn't surprise me that no one has it installed. I put the 4xGuard (Belly) on it appears to be very solid but if don't put a 1/8 1/4" spacer in the front of it, it will rattle against exhaust stuff and drive you nuts.

I too have a belly guard on my jeep. As far as sliders I'd highly recommend steel armadillo over 4xguard

Belly guard here, too. I think there are more WK owners who have the rear skid installed. Check the afore mentioned mystery forum for both XK and WK owners. There's also a group on Facebook for both vehicles, and the guys there are very active.

I know the guy (from the Google+ XK group) that owns the Black lifted XK with the 35" tires and was/is the test truck for all of the 4XG stuff. He knows the owner. He has the prototype for the rearguard 2 (it looks almost exactly the same as the final product) and the slider. It looks good to say the least. If your not going to get an aftermarket bumper, the sliders are the way to go for 2 more solid attachment points, especially if you don't have a hitch.

I don't know about the rearguard, but I will be putting the sliders on my XK.

Thanks to all above for the added info. I will probably investigate a bit further based on your suggestions and then pull the trigger so to speak.

Rock Rails are the next on my list. I am trying to decide what to do so I await your thoughts on the 4X sliders.
