Installed some Poly Performance High Clearance Rocker Guards
over the weekend and I have to say I'm very impressed with them.
They are are very well thought out and designed, and definitely high clearance and definitely substantial.
Installation took two hours with two us (thanks Rod H). After learning from the first one, the second one went on in about 40 minutes. Having two people makes the install real easy. After doing it once I could now do it by myself, but having two people really does help and I'd recommend it.
The instructions are very detailed and easy to follow.
Cutting the body mount brackets down with a 4.5" grinder and cutting disc was pretty easy. It is easier to remove the body mount bolts first and measure the 3/4" from the mounting surface, rather than trying to do it when the bolts are in place.
After drilling the 10 pilot holes, I found you didn't have to remove the guards, just back the body mount holes out 1" or so and the will hang down clear enough to finish drilling the holes and install the nutserts.
The fit is excellent and they follow the curved sides of the JK perfectly.
Although they are very high, my 9 yr old boy and his buddies can get in and out of the vehicle easily.
I found some 1" plastic hole covers and threw them in the holes. Not sure how long they will stay there on the trail, but for now they look nice and finished.
Interestingly they have also stiffened up the body, and the squeaks, rattles, and clunks I used to get from the doors when going over potholes and the like have all disappeared.
They are not cheap, but are a quality product and if you want a high clearance and excellent protection then they are definitely worth looking at.
