Mud Guards???
 
Since my tires stick out so far I'm a little worried about throwing rocks into the side of my Jeep. I was considering a set of front and rear mud guards. I've found a few options, but haven't seen any on a WK that I actually like yet. Any suggestions on a good looking set that's subtle but effective???

Thanks guys.

Looks like the Mopar ones are the best looking I've seen so far. Just wondering if they would even help as far as my tires sit out. I'm more worried about the front tires throwing stuff on the side of the body.

as you know mine sit about the same as yours, and my mud terrains sling all kinds of rocks/debris, i had the same worry when i first got my set up, but it's been over a year and i have yet to see any (new) damage, i hear some loud noises from time to time but it seems to be on the plastic rockers more than anywhere else.

Thanks bro, that's what I was hoping to hear. Maybe I'll just keep an eye on it and hold off for a while. I for sure like the look of the WK's better without them if I'm not going to be tearing up my paint.

You could try that clear film that goes on like tint. Xpel is one company, and I'm sure there are many more. You could probably just do below the trim on the doors and that should give you plenty of protection. The good thing is that if it gets marked up too much, it can be easily replaced. I've used this stuff on door sills and areas where people hit their feet, but you may also want to try a local tint shop, they often install this kind of film.

Or some AQuartz, the future of detailing. . . .
