    anybody know a company that sells thick rear corners to cover the rear qrt . I don't want the thick diamond plate and the the wimpy thin diamond plate is out of the question. I just looking for 1/4" smooth ....

    the other problem I'm having is most of the companys cut for lights and gas tank openings and I want mine to be where they are . by the time I fill there holes , I might as well make my own.

    my kid could probably bend me up some rough and then I trim them out with a plasma cutter.but he is busy with his own work.

    i thought about this too seems like you could bend some up to fit out of 1/8th inch plate but I havent quite figured out how t make the right bend, maybe bolting up to one side then heating as you go to make the corner fit, diamond plate is not my style either

    I have been trying to order from Off Your Rocker and cannot get a response. I am interested in their rocker guards. Has anyone had success ordering from them lately?
    I just cant get a response email or phone but the site is still up. I like their stuff and it comes in smooth.

    Little late for that now. I think Steve will pay extra if the rockers come in pink.

    I have the Warrior Products full wrap 12 ga smooth steel on the back of my A1 (no tailgate to deal with) and I am pretty sure that they make just the corners as well.

    no ,these would wrap over ,and bolt/weld? in place I got the smashed one to look pretty good,(good enough for my jeep anyway ) these would just cover everything up,be stronger to take a hit /flop ,since I have a rear offset wb , I still need to cut the openings out anyway to make room . capish?

    all my wheel'n buddys want me to just comp cut it but I don't like the look ,,,especially with only 33s/35s.

    never really paid attention are the ones for sale welded or bolted to a body ?
