E-Autogrilles full body armor

For those of you curious to see the entire package installed, I have some pics to share. First of all, I really think there parts are of good quality, especially for the price. The tube fenders and rear corners are basically knock-offs of Smittybilts products.

Smittybilt/E-Autogrilles
Front tube fenders...$340/$227
Rear corners...........$270/$175
Rocker guards.........$260/$184
$870/$586 Savings of 284.00 plus saved $57.00 on tax since I live in a state with 4wheelparts.

These are the ebay E-Autogrilles tube fenders, rockers, and rear quarters. I did a comparison of price for 4wheelparts Smittybilts and the Ebay Autogrilles product. As for the vents, they are tack welded to the fender but, would be no issue to remove and put whatever you want there. For those of you curious on shipping time, I live in Florida and received each item within a week of purchase.

Nice looking yj, how was the fitment of the rear corner guards? I need to pick up a pair for my tube flare build. Also, how think are they?

I think they are 1/4 inch thick. Fitment was good, zero issues mounting.

Would you say that they are good enough quality to invest in? They look fantastic - and are much cheaper that their counterparts!
Just quality and durability is what I'm curious about.

I would buy them again... I can stand on the fenders and jump up and down on them, I'm a solid 205lbs. I have also flexed out multiple times where the tire is in the fender and it supports the weight of the Jeep (need to finish up my bump stops). All the hardware is stainless with nylock nuts. Front fenders have 3/4 holes for LED blinkers in the very front. I put Maguire's back to black conditioner on the tops of the fenders so they are protected, and keep a like new finish. The powercoat on a 1-10, 10 being best I would give 7.5-8. I have dropped stuff on them, slipped with tools, brushed some tree limbs, etc. no major scratches or removal of coating. There are no instructions for install for the fronts, but you can use Smitybilts PDF from the website. Hope this helps.

It is the factory hardtop. It might look different because of the contrast between the gloss and flat black. I like how the top looks like it rolls right into rear quart panels.

Looks great man, looks like it protects a lot of it. I never thought I would say it but I wish it some tube flares on the rear and fronts poked out just a tit but more lol

They offer the front and rear with the option to add a 3" flare.

Unfortunately, I do not. However, to be clear lol you are not really "removing" the front fender. You basically cut it off. If you want to keep your fender then I would suggest buying scrap fenders and hacking those up.

Follow these instructions... They are for the Smittybilt fenders but, the fenders are identical with the exception of where to drill a few mounting holes. Its what I used for my install.

You can watch this too:

Hey man, I was just wondering if there were the step bars you got and if they're just bolted to tub or if there in some frame ties?
Thanks

Do you get a gap between the rear armor and the rock slider. Maybe about 1/4".
