    Ask CalSgt how well the frame mounted LOD destroyers faired at protecting his rockers.

    I won't lie, it's been tough but we've been doing a lot and don't want it to be all old news. Better to get stuff out as soon as we can even if it kills us

    It'll be a much easier install without the skins.

    I know you've been spending a lot more time focusing on the JT these days, but any report on long term satisfaction with these rocker guards? Especially how they have held up to abuse on the trails? I know going to a body mount type rocker guard was a bit of a departure from your typical frame mounted preference. Have they proven durable when tied into the skins? I'm interested in the EVO rocker steps w/ skins, but looking for some assurance before pulling the trigger.

    So, they have held up surprisingly well. I've had a lot of people express concerns about the bolt heads under the rocker guards but I'm happy to say that NONE have gotten mashed up the way everyone imagined. Fact of the matter is, they are well protected by the FRAME RAIL. The rocker guards themselves have proven to be quite tough but I have been able to dent them in a bit in a few places. Granted, I've been able to dent the hell out of EVERY rocker guard I've tested over the last 20+ years, frame mounted or otherwise. I will say that up front, the rocker guard had caused the ultra thin fender body panel to warp a bit but I was able to fix that simply by loosening up the body panel bolts and pushing it back flat. Even though I would have preferred frame mounted rocker guards, I am overall happy with them.
