How To: Install 4xGuard Rear Guard 2

Even though it's a pretty easy install, I haven't seen any "How To's" on it so why not do it so you can all see! As some of you know I had some issued getting the dang thing and in the end, I had to wrong mounting hardware (3" bolts instead of 2") for the frame mounts! I have already spoken to Marlin and it's all good, and he's fixed the issue(s) haha

NOTE: I know she is SUPER dirty under there so shut it!! haha

Step 1 - Let down the spare tire all the way to the ground so you have some slack and can move it out of your way.


Step 2 - Drill pilot holes into the frame through the existing holes. (Holes only on the inside of the frame and not the outside) Then drill 1/2" holes through. Note the wiring for the hitch on the passenger side right above the hole. I didn't move it cuz I was careful when drilling

Driver Side


Passenger Side


Step 3 - Install mounting hardware to frame w hardware w loctite! (for now I added extra washers until I get the proper 2" bolts)


Step 4 - Bring the spare tire back up into it's stock location.

Step 5 - Install Rear Guard 2 (there are 2 diff lengths. 1 for WK, and 2 for XK) The WK mounts are the ones furthest from the hole for the spare tire (most outside hole on RG2)


3" bolts (just showing you how much they stick out)


BAM all done! Smile and go get dirty!




I'll get some better underneath shots later, just wanted to post this on up.

Thanks for checking out my post!
Greg

Re: How To: Install 4xGuard Rear Guard 2

nice job, I wanted to see how far this went underneath!

Am planning my own skid plate to cover the whole spare tire area.

making my own out of 3/16" aluminum, its on the drawing board, need some more time to mock up a template. my plate is not for serious off road protection, just to keep the gravel road damage from occurring. will post up pics once I get it done!

Re: How To: Install 4xGuard Rear Guard 2

also does it render your hitch un-usable......it looks tight to the hitch

Nope hitch is still perfectly usable. Honestly I'd prefer a hybrid between the first one and this one. I like how the lip came up more on the original one. But this one is sweet and provides great protection!!
