body armor

well.. i decided to keep my new daily driver fairly stock for now.. most likely until the warranty is up..

i have money saved up left from when i bought my car and i have been planning on buying tube fenders.. heres what my plans are.. please give me any input you guys have and let me know what i should change.. =D

i think im going to start with rokmen mercenary sliders with the tube and inner inserts



next to come would be sniper fab crawler fenders


i think i want to keep it flareless.. ive been told theres no laws here in indiana.. and when i called the police station told me as long as there is nothing WRONG with my tire, than i can drive on the road.. and there is no ''tire coverage'' law

rokmens site seems to be down so ill get the other products later.. anyways most likely these will be the 2 products i buy for my jeep by the end of this month.. opinions?

the other items im looking at getting by the end of the winter will be the rokmen stryker corner guards and their gastank skid

I like the way they look, i assume where you are from you do a lot of trail riding and a LOT of mud, so those looke perfect. If you were into rocks then i would get different rock sliders for the sides......IMO flareless fenders look bitching, but not on a daily driver like mah rig

yah around here this is mainly trails and mud.. i do w/e rock crawling i can around here.. thats what im into the most..

im going flareless only because this isnt my dd =D and yes they do look great.. and cost a HECK of a lot cheaper than any with flares

the rokmen stryker corner guards have matching rails that match the rokmen sliders.. ive came into a couple tight squeezes where i go offroading where i wish i had these..

i love the look of the rocker guards with the tube but my feelings are that they stick out another 3"s and are another thing that can get hung up......i like the rock sliders with no tube b/c if 1/4" steel cant take on the rock then the tube that is mounted to it sure as hell wont

My suggestion would be to spend the coin and get Gen-Right's Highline kit. It comes with their tube fenders, rockers, and corner. Stock it would let you stuff 35" tires. They did a green TJ with a 1" body lift and 37" tires. Its craziness. The kit would fulfill all your body armor needs, minus skids. Their stuff looks pretty killer too.

GenRight tube style Hi-Fender kit for the Jeep TJ or LJ

the highline fender kit is just WAY too pricey for me

i already got a small lift.. i just plan on eventually running 36'' IROKS on my hp30/d44 combo.. so the tube fender without the fenders.. my current lift with either currie short arms or the RE longarm upgrade.. and maybe 2.5'' ome coils.. ill be keeping my acos and it should run fairly nice..

oh im also looking at the rokmen mercenary front bumper.. the one with radiator loop and winch plate welded in..

i plan on keeping my 33s and suspension the same for probably the next year or so.. so its all armoring it up now =D

Go Rokmen on everything you mentioned. I don't think you'll have any regrets.

I'd have to agree with you there. I've seen many Jeeps with tree rash and rock rash along the sides of their hoods due to having a fuller front fender or a tube fender that follows the contour of the hood.
