Are there stone guards for OEM fog lights?

Ok, so here's the deal. Does anyone know if there are a set of stone guards or brush guards for factory OEM fog lights? I know that many people don't really care about them since they won't protect every aspect of the lights, but I could use a pair for keeping some of the brush on the trails away from the fogs... that and the cosmetics of course.

Anyway, does anyone know if someone makes such a part, or where you could find one? Has anyone fabbed a part and have a link on how to do it? Links or ideas are always appreciated.

Basic stock OEM fogs on a 2001 TJ Sport... Here's a few pics just to show you the basic set up.









The housing has small ridges on it that go around the entire piece... Any ideas?

Ebay has OEM full black covers that say jeep, and stone guards that have a waffle design. Fairly cheap too. Not more than 20 bucks.

Sweet... but will these stone guards fit these fog lights? I can find guards all over the place, but usually to an aftermarket setup...

Yes, there were mesh-style stone guards (and solid ones, I believe) produced for the early fog lights. I don't know where to find them now, and I *really* wish I could find a set of the guards for the 05-06 lights, even though they only offered covers and not mesh-style guards.

This seems to be a common theme...

It's funny, I know I could upgrade and get a whole new set of lights with guards but my OEMs work fine.

I just wonder if an aftermarket guard could fit on one of these?

So first things first I ordered a set and got them a few days later. The first thing I noticed was that these guards were OEM mopar pieces . The second thing I noticed was that they were plastic .

They were hard plastic, without a lot of flex, and I thought to myself well they might take a hit or two. Besides I got them with shipping and handling for a total around $39.00 US, so if worse comes to worse I've got a blueprint here for something to fabricate them later on.... Let's put them on and see what's what...

So, first you need a size 15 torx screwdriver (or adapter or socket, or spanner/ whatever) to remove the three torx bolts from the OEM foglights, then you add these little plastic divots / spacers / mounts onto the bolts.



One with, one without...

These inserted torx screws / bolts will stick out from the foglights and allow you to snap on the guards... they stick out a bit, just be careful not to over torque them or you may damage the mounts...

So when it came time to snap them on, it took a good deal of force... I was afraid of knocking around my foglights at first, since it seems like these guards wouldn't fit at all. I applied pressure from the front of the light using the palm of my hand over the torx screw mounting and steadying my second hand from the back of the light directly behind the screw. Eventually a loud audible click will be heard and felt as the guard slips onto the mount. Repeat the movement until all three mounts have been attached.

Will they work? Only time will tell, but I'll update this if anything happens..

I've certainly enjoy them so far and I've been pleasantly surprised by these little buggers. The first trip out, the GF noticed them instantly, and liked the look... so what can I say? Hell, I've spent more than $39.00 on pizza during football season, so lets see if these things will last a year

A coupon code for jeepsareus.com is "retailmenot5" which is 5% off, unfortunately shipping the same product to me in Canada costs like 28$ lol (I hate paying for shipping). Still thinking about it...
