The new line of XRC Corner Guards were specifically engineered to provide the maximum protection and clearance needed when you're pushing your rig through the toughest conditions.
The XRC Armor Corner Guards are manufactured from 3/16 inch cold roll steel, and are hand crafted to insure a perfect fit every time. Each of Smittybilt XRC Armor Corner Guards are powder coated in Smittybilt's signature series two-stage finish for a lightly textured matte black finish that will last for year after year. Although there is some drilling required, each XRC Armor Corner Guard is designed to be a complete bolt-on with stainless steel fasteners. Each corner guard is available with or without a 3 inch flare and can be used with Smittybilt's XRC Armor Rocker Guards, as well as their XRC Armor Tube Fenders
This product was absolutely terrible and I have never been more disappointed with any jeep accessory or customer service in my life. They were extremely difficult to install. It took professionals at a dealership FOUR DAYS to install. They were on my jeep for less then three months and the coating has worn off all over them and over half of the entire thing is RUSTED!!! Not to mention all the washers that were sent with it rusted within the first week! I sat on hold for customer service multiple times just to get hung up on before even speaking to anyone. Finally got ahold of someone by email and all they offered was for my to remove them myself, pay the shipping myself and they would send me the same thing. I purchased my front fenders from smittybilt and they are still in perfect condition, not one speck of rust. Will definitely never purchase a single thing from this company ever again and will be sure to warn all my friends of what aweful products this company is fine with selling to their customers.
Started to install on my own....Wow....takes at least two people to install, and PATIENCE! :) Love the looks, but as soon as you put this on your jeep, do not drive with the doors off through water/after a rain. You will be soaked in seconds. Especially if you have offset wheels. If you use a Side Mount Jack holder to the A-frame, it will stick out sideways at an angle that makes it hard to look at. Took some work to resolve, but sad that more things aren't made for this armor. Does add weight to the jeep, so if you're worried about the weight of your rig, these are heavy. Lastly, they replace the front quarter panel, so have someplace to store them, or if you toss them, and decide later you don't like the armor, be ready to drop some coin to replace the front and have them painting. Rear Panel REQUIRES Drilling into the body, even through the instructions stated "NO DRILLING REQUIRED". Would be nice if Smittybilt and 4WD corrected this on their documentation and website. Aggressive looks, protection while trailing, and looks great in the parking lot. :)
You can't beat the look of these fenders. They are super beefy and offer a ton of protection. I had some body damage from some trees and rocks and these covered it up and will make sure it DOESN'T happen again. The install involves some drilling and using nutserts which can be a pain to install. I recommend getting an actual nutsert tool to make installing them quicker and easier.
I agree,your jeep will not stay clean but the fenders make it look a lot tougher.the front fenders are very easy to install the rear fenders are a little more difficult,but after having 2 jeeps and installing them twice it's not that bad,and also allows for bigger tires
I got in an accident and messed up the rear panel so I beat/bent it out and installed this corner armor and you can't even tell plus it looks great and its super strong, stronger than the original body.
I have the xrc rear swing out tire carrier also; same sorry powder coat job. Does not last....if you buy this; get it sand blasted and prep it right then put on some Herculiner or comparable bed coating....their powder coat dept needs a time out!
I had these installed as a replacement after a deer accident. I truely like the look it gives my 2008 - 4 door! I do agree with the one review that stated about the need for easy on easy off flares, this is my everyday driver. Although the trail aspect of these fenders is Awsome, it is impossible to keep my jeep clean even after a small rain shower on the highway. Another thing to consider is the addition of a side marker/blinker light for on-road use.
Pretty hard to install, you will need a rachet sets both metric and standard. Power drill with 7/16 drill bit that is at least 10 inches long. Also C clamps to hold in place, atleast two or three. You will need two people.Hard to get holes to line up perfectly.
Does this kit include flair panels for only the rear side of the vehicle? or does it include 4 flare panels (front and rear) ?

Saleh, the Smittybilt XRC Full Rear Corner Armor is just the rear armor. If you want to get the front as well, they are located here: http://www.4wd.com/Armor-Protection/XRC-Front-Fender-Armor.aspx?t_c=79&t_s=473&t_pt=3626&t_pn=S/B76880 Hope this helps!
