Euro guards on headlights and turn lights

I'm thinking about ordering some. mostly for the marker lights. I was up with some friends yesterday and slid a little on some ice, and a stick punched a hole in the lens. yea lenses are cheaper than guards to protect them. but I think it might look good too. but i haven't actually seen many tjs with them on all the front lights.

I was debating the same thing, haven't ordered any yet thou, lol... A stick will still poke a hole in the light most likely, so imho its purely cosmetic?!

I read a bit back they don't fit well on Sahara/Rubicon fenders though, so didn't want to risk spending anything on it that looked off too...

I have them on my TJ sport n they look great. I also replace the turn signal lights with the black out turn signals n with the guard, I think it looks better. But is personal preference.

They will do nothing to protect your lenses. They are purely cosmetic. And they look crappy imo.

I got a full set from rugged ridge for xmas. The front looks really good with all those light guards on it. For the record, the rear guards gave me problems. The new longer hardware they give you to replace the originals were not the right size and wouldn't screw into the existing holes in the body. I found some I could use, but that was annoying. Second, the passenger side rear tail light guard sits just high enough to let the plastic guard on the top rear door arm hit it. I fixed that by cutting a bit of the plastic guard off. I got the 6 on the front put on in about 5 minutes, the rears took an additional 30 with all the problems I ran in to. All in all, I love the new look and the problems I encountered were worth it in the end.

Don't know where you reside but they are illegal here in Va. Not to many will pull you for them but it does give them a reason to. Just something to consider check your local.

Why would they be illegal?

Anything preventing full light transmission. You can't have any type of lense covering.

I live in Montana, where we're still free to do whatever we want to our rigs. no emissions, no safety inspections, hello 30 years ago there weren't speed limits! I think ill be just fine with these guards.
