Pics of tail light guards?

Trying to decide on the right tail light guards, as it seems theres only a couple options out there...

I like this one the best as it looks the most distinctive, does anyone have better pics of it installed?

My second choice would be this, but over blacked out tail lights I don't think you could even tell its there:

Pics installed on a black 4 door would be preferred!

Keep in mind that these are more cosmetic than protective. The way that these screw into the actual tailight assembly itself, means that if you back into a tree or rock, the taillights will likely crack at the mounting points. They are also more likely to hit on something, than if you weren't using them at all.

True, mine did offer some protection to branches snapping back but thats about it, I haven't found any that has a hard mount to the backside then around to the front on the market yet.

I have the second ones. They are for looks only, not for protection.

I use the duct tape version on the left side.



Here's an action shot version of the right side coming off. I use the RTV version on that side.

another vote for the Rugged Ridge ones. Put them on my Jeep last week. As soon as my wife saw them and she said "Oh, I LIKE those"- I knew I was in trouble if I didn't put some on her JK. So I immediately ordered another set.

FWIW- that link to the ones on ebay is expensive if all you want is the taillight guards. You can get just the taillight guards alone for around $50

I like the Rugged Ridge ones the best I think- so they're about $50?

I plan on blacking out the stock lights underneath so I want something thats going to be a little bulky and noticeable so I think these will do just fine.

I am seriously considering doing the LED/flush tail light mod; but I worry how its going to look on the back end when I put on the new bumper and tire cover...
Thanks for the help though everyone!

I'm using the Mopar set.

For the money, the RR guards are the way to go.

I used to have the mopar ones but I like my new redrock ones better here are some comparison shots. The Redrocks give your jeep a more aggressive look and sits further off of the tailight






Those above are the mopar ones and here are the Redrocks








I got them for Christmas, I think they got them off extreme.
