Warrior makes a smooth corner guard that isn't excessively heavy like some are, that's what is on my TJ. If you go with them, use stainless steel pop-rivets instead of the aluminium pop-rivets included in the kit. Aluminum pop-rivets are too soft for this application and will eventually fail.

RokMen and Genright are about the only one's left that I can think of.

Mine are PSC and they've held up fine but, or course, PSC is no longer around.

It's to prevent one but also to add strength to the area for mounting an Or-fab style spare tire and gas can carrier.
