Ding Proof Jeep?

Considering the broad use of Jeeps (from mall crawl to rock) it's not that hard to get a ding probably more from mail crawling .

But anyway is this too expensive or does it make the door less protective. Remember the GM Saturn commercials where they took a sledge hammer to a door and nothing happened. That would be amazing to have that in a Jeep. Seems it would also go with it's tough/ruggered rep.

The original ZJ had huge plastic panels along the lower body in body or black depending on trim. Dunno if this was design homage to the Krap Cars or was intended to avoid scratching up metalwork.

It did work pretty good for keeping major metalwork from happening off minor trail dings. However, if you ever did crunch it, the body shops may not be that complimentary about what it takes to truly repair that plastic.

Fugliness/beauty is in the eye of the beholder so won't touch that.

You realize you have just intentionally angered the Ding Gods, and they will get you for this...

Re: Ding Proof Jeep?

Istowell maybe your right about repair cost. Saturn tried to use ding proof for its niche which of course wasn't successful.

Oh yes, you better park another 1/4 mile away. I do that all the time park far away, corner spots, but it just takes one idiot. Mine happened on a college campus. I'm sure beer and drugs were involved
