Protect your cowl from mirror damage with cowl body armor from Rugged Ridge. Whenever your door limiter straps are disconnected the door can over extend causing damage to your cowl area. These new cowl covers protect your cowl area while providing a great look. Constructed of durable UV thermoplastic, these covers easily attach using 3M double sided automotive grade adhesive. Sold in pairs.
The cowl protector looks great and is easy to install. Make sure that you check how you would like to line up the body armor on your Jeep before taking the tape off to install it. This will ensure that you get a clean line install. Once the tape is off, you only have one shot at installing correctly.
looks really good just be careful to stick on straight-
If you use the black smittybilt window brackets these cowl guards fit poorly. Odd gaps between the window bracket and guard allow the body beneath to remain visible which looks cheap. These fit great with stock window brackets but since I wanted to use the black smittybilt bracket I decided not to use these afterall. Even after I spent some time with the dremmel tool sanding down the edges to attempt to get the guard to fit better to hide the gaps between the guard and window bracket. Disappointed this didn't fit well with the aftermarket smittybilt window bracket. I would not recommend this unless you only use it with stock window brackets.
The FIRST time I took off the doors of my JK, tragedy struck!! I took the door limiters off and pushed down on the door to stand back up. The nose of the Jeep was pointed down hill, AND the wind was blowing! I turned loose of the door, and it slowly swong around and the mirror bumped the cowl. I didnt think anything of it until a few days later. I came out of work and BAM! I saw the dent, and knew what happened. I just bought a new JK 1 day ago and I am ordering these to go on it to protect the cowl from me.
Is there a cover that matches for the cowl vents as well? I want the same look all the way across the windshield. 2014 unlimited Rubicon

Do I have to remove the windshield wiper arms to install these ? I have a 2011 wrangler two door with a rag top.
Asked by keith from Lorain, Ohio on
Keith, The Rugged Ridge Cowl Body Armor do not require the wiper arms to be removed. These attach to the cowl using double sided tape. If you have any other questions feel free to give me a call at Ext. 876. Thanks!
