Rear corner Body armour

Hello guys.

I recently just purchased my first jeep (2006 Rubicon) and I am looking to purchase a few things for it. (Some body armour and tail guards to start off) I was looking for a good black diamond rear corner body armour however I don't know what you guys recommend. I am not looking for the one that extends all the way down the side, just the corners.

I know there are some plastic ones, aluminum and steel ones. To be honest, I will not be doing heavy stuff like rock climbing or anything like that(as of now and in a good while) so I figured I don't need the steel ones yet. I heard they can eventually create rust problems when water gets trapped between the body of the jeep and the actual steel armour and they are more pricey. I don't know how accurate that is but we all hate rust.

I don't want to go for plastic because first of all I don't want to be that one person(we all know who I'm talking about). And second, I would like to have a little bit of protection in case I do decide to go out on an adventure here and there.

My problem is, I cannot find any black diamond ones made out of aluminum. (This may be a dumb question since I don't know if they exist). If they do exist, what brands would you guys recommend? I am trying to avoid rust that's why I was looking for the black powdered ones however I'm kind of clueless over here.


Any help towards the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Black diamond aluminum. Diamond plate is sort of passé . That's why it's hard to find.

Warrior Products has lots of armour like this, even aluminum diamond plate if thats what you really want. Like mentioned above, not many people are big fans of diamond plate but its your Jeep and you can do whatever you like, have fun!

When I see diamond plate, I think rusty CJs.
