Poison Spyder rear corners

Just got off the phone with PS and their new JKR rear corners are being stamped and will be available in June. WooHoo!

I thought they already did corners? Did they change them or am I confused?

They've always done them for the JKU but not the 2 door. I'm a PS fan boy and have been patiently waiting. Here they are with the stock tail lights but I'm getting mine with the recessed round led's and back ups like in the bottom pic.

Ah I see. I think I am doing EVOs or GenRight - they do a "long" version for two doors instead of just the short corners. But those PS ones are pretty handsome!

I may do PS fenders - working on my plan.

Love my PS alum crusher fenders. Had them powdercoated black. If you buy the steel versions they come black.

This is not true...I have a set for a 2 door sitting in my garage right now.
The issue come up when PS sold out and the new owners started having them made in China. They came out with the 4 door right away but the two doors are bigger and they haven't come up with a press big enough for them yet.

It's not that they are "bigger", but because the fuel filler door is in a different location on the 2 door than the 4 door.

Maybe there is hope that they'll start making 2 door Crusher Corners again, but I'm not holding me breath. I still like the old versions better when they used the AEV blanks.

Not True At All.

Poison Spyder sold to Trans America awhile back; same company that sells Smitty Bilt, Pro Comp and others from China. However, Poison Spyder does not, and will not EVER have their stuff made in China. Call the company yourself if you don't believe me. (951) 849-5911

Ask them where their diff covers are made.

@mommymallcrawler ... I was at evo about 2 weeks ago and I saw their corner guards first hand. They do have a slight gap to them. Out of your options, I really like the genrights since they have a nice recess for maxbilt led lights. Also, there's river raider which has a thicker 3/16 as opposed to the 1/8th thickness of the others. The PS though are hard to beat in terms of price.

All GenWrong did was buy up all of the remaining stock of the AEV 2-door builder blanks, welded in a recess for the tail light, and doubled the price. Once the builder blanks are all used up, they will be gone, too.

I spoke directly with AEV and Poison Spyder a few months back. AEV will not be making 2 door builder blanks again and told me all of their inventory was bought by GenWrong. Poison Spyder told me they had no plans to make a 2 door Crusher Corner.

I am interested to see if PS does actually make a 2 door trail corner - but I am a bit of a skeptic. In Oct '15, they told me the 2 door Crushers would be available in Jan '16. Yeah, right.

I decided to go a semi-DIY route. I have a set of AEV 2 door corners with the cutouts for stock tail lights (FYI - The JKU and JK fuel door is in a different location). I had the powder coat blasted off and will be filling in some holes and welding in a blank from Warrior Products to mount a Max-Bilt Trail Tail. It will be unique, I think. Hopefully, it won't be ugly, too. LOL. The plan is to extend the steel down the side, too, to make a full corner.

What I like about the AEV stamp that PS doesn't have, is the raised area around the hinges. However, what AEV and PS do that no one else does, is put a bend at the top of the armor so it tucks up next to the window channel. Much cleaner look.

@ShutterBug ... I forgot about AEV. I didn't know about the AEV/Genright acquisition of the corners. Pretty good info.

GenRight does two versions for the two door - a short corner only version like AEV, then the longer version that goes farther forward on the body.

All they do is weld more steel onto the end of the builder blank. Just like Poison Spyder did before they were sold to Transamerica who bought their own stamp.

I hope they do come out with them. I'm sick of 2 doors getting ignored.

You can go eat something else.
