    Not sure how the Iron Cross mount up, but these hug the body pretty good and don't go past the pinch seams. They are held on with 3M tape.

    Ok good to know. Thanks again. Was wondering how they were mounted.

    Glad I saw these from your post! I was going to go with the Mopars until I just saw these! Will probably do their floor mats too now.

    @PowerGuy what sliders do you have? I’ve got RockHard 4x4 and they mount to the pinch seam as well as the tub and the frame to body mounting points. Do you know if these would work with them?

    I have LoD sliders that are frame mounted. These could work depending on how the rockhard attach to the pinch seam. I’ve attached a couple of picks taken from the ground up so you could get an idea of the thickness of the bushwackers.

    I really like the Bushwacker guard but I guess I'm wondering why the 4 door version is split into 2 pieces on each side? It looks as if it was previously made as one solid piece on each side. Perhaps the front pieces are the same as the 2 door version and for the 4 door, they just add the back pieces to the shipment?
    anybody else notice the JK vs. JL difference? maybe i'm missing something?

    It's a grip tape. It seems very durable. I've had it on for 10 months and still looks new.

    It finally warmed up enough for me to finish the installation. As I noted above, I did the 3m protective film on the sill and wrapped it down the face of the rocker to just below the top of the stock rock rail. The sill guards were easy to install - I removed the cover tape on the 3m along the top edge first, got it put on tight, then did the lower two pieces. I did that to avoid accidentally sticking the guard down crooked or buckled and it worked well. Test fit it first and used blue tape to mark the end / starting point for the guard to guide me on landing it. I like the coverage of this guard (and its cousin from Quadratec).
