Warrior Corner Guards

I have finally decided that I am going to go with the Warrior 12 gauge steel corner guards. Any suggestions or recommendation before installing? Also heard that there is a gap between the plate and body. This true? I could not find a picture to verify this.

If you're just doing a set of corners for factory lights, there will be a small gap at the bottom where they meet the bumper, so you can't see it at all.

There is buffer space around the tail light itself. See photo.

Yep, a big gap. And 12g steel is very thin, less than 1/8".

If installed properly, the gap is minimal. Every install we've done you couldn't get your pinky in the bottom corner where the only real gap is at. The buffer space around the tail light is there so the taillight can be taken on and off without issue.

This is about as good as it gets for a fairly low dollar corner armor that's punched flat and brake formed. The next step is a stamped steel piece. I think the AEV stuff is stamped if you prefer that route, but the price tag is significantly more.

12 gauge is slightly thinner than 1/8" ...by about 20 thousandths.

The one in the pic above is different than the ones I have seen installed. I was looking at the LED corners, and those have a big noticeable gap at the top. So my bad, I didn't know that the OP was looking at that style.

When I upgrade to corner armor soon, I don't want the stock lights. Anything that actually hits that corner is going to break the light too; I know, Ive been through two sets!

Sorry I forgot to mention that I am going with the factory tail light cut out style. I am buying these due to the Garvin rack mounts to the body back there.

[email protected]: Would I be better to go with the Diamond Plate or the Steel for extra support for the roof rack?


Now if someone has a great deal around $130-$150 for the LED corner guards with the LED's then I will go that route.

You guys may also consider using these corners with the Warrior Steel Tail Light boxes.

But I need the corner guards to add extra support for the roof rack, so just the taillight boxes won't help.

Nice rig BTW

Right...I was just saying that the combination of the corner guards AND the steel light boxes, might be the ticket.
