DeFender XC Full Length Side Plates do more than just cover the access hole in the side of the DeFender XCs they also provide armor protection to the side of the Jeeps tub, from the fender flare to the door opening, and from the top of the Rocker Knockers up to the hood line. These Full Length Side Plates also provide extra bracing for the DeFenders against frontal impacts, helping to prevent buckling of the weaker, stock tub sheetmetal just rearward of the armored fender. DeFender Full Length Side Plates are CNC laser cut from 3/16" 6061-T6 aluminum plate. Bolt holes are countersunk so that the supplied flat head stainless steel hardware lies flush with the plates surface. The forward edge is cut to fit the enlarged wheel opening of Poison Spyder DeFender XCs, while the lower edge is cut to nest against Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers or Ricochet Rockers (NOTE: the angle of the forward edge of the Full Length Side Plates may not precisely align with the forward edge of older versions of Rocker Knockers and Ricochet Rockersnewer, DeFender-specific Rocker Knockers or Ricochet Rockers are designed to match the angle of this forward edge more closely). This product ships as bare aluminum - it will need to be painted or powder coated prior to final installation. We do not offer a powder coat option for this item.
