Rear quarter flimsy IMO. The bumperettes give protection in case of rock contact at angles off roading. Good place to hi-lift if sills are not accessible in tight spots, and OK for light recovery.

My SG ends have saved the rear quarters a few times. If you look closely at the picture Cube II posted of my baby's rear end, you will notice the missing power coat, a result of setting it down on a rock and sliding off.. It is the main reason why I bought them. They also seem sturdy enough to hi-lift from, and they through bolt with the rear cage support, but I haven't tried to use the highlift on them yet..

Thanks you too Scott for the pics.

combined with a small "return" under the rear quarter (...)they might protect the quarter from coming in contact with a rock/tree....... Or maybe you get hung up on the thing you added. ...
Hey John,
that's why I'd like to keep them as minimal as possible.

Other than the vulnerable rear quarter they should save the lights working as "spacers" when reversing...
...sort of a "non electronic" parking sensors!


Recently I bent my RHS quarter and that hard-to-find NATO light reversing...reversing into another D90 door!!!

Although the added alu sheet I made as second skin, the panel bent easily.

Other Defenders apart,trees are the main menaces.
I think a couple of these,protruding as much as necessary to keep the lights out of the way could help sliding on unmoveable objects...

I may consider to cut the lower portion of the corners so to gain a bit of clearance.

Scott,do the SG protectors require body trimming?
As the Boulder Bashers type?
(in the vendors section)

Hey Michele,

The SG corners DO NOT require any body trimming. For this reason they are not as minimalistic as they could be, but I didn't want to get into hacking up my 90. Some are okay with this, I just am not.

Ok ok,that's fine,I too was (and partially am still) reluctant to cut when I can avoid,
I was sure I heard some cutting was required but it's obviously false.

Just to know,I'll see what to do,my clever "oh-so-easy" projects usually drag on for months and months before seeing the light...

Sometimes I'd just like a big shopping cart...
