Quarter Panel Guards for 110

Because there is no satisfactory protection offered for their vulnerable quarter panels I have produced guards suitable for 110s. The guards are constructed with the same material, workmanship and finish as the receiver hitches. They are compatible with all 110s both NAS and ROW with modification to exhaust on some vehicles. The guards can be used in conjunction with the factory NAS rear step/hitch.

$500 shipped in the lower 48.

Those who own 110s know just how easily damaged the quarter panels are. These soft aluminum body panels protrude conspicuously over the departure angle of the trucks. Furthermore, damage to the quarter panels is difficult to repair in a manner consistent with factory construction because of the presence of unpainted pop rivets.
It is not uncommon to see an otherwise fairly clean 110 with damaged quarter panels.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...nder110-12.jpg

The guards have been designed to minimize the potential for damage to the quarter panels without altering the vehicle in any unnecessary fashion and to be consistent with factory styling.
To this end the guards have a channel surrounding the quarter panel, which terminates in a squared-off bumperette at the rear corners and are supported by an angled brace at the junction and an outrigger to the frame.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1746.JPG
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1749.JPG

The passenger and driver side outriggers are symmetrical for strength and aesthetic purposes and therefore some exhaust/resonators may interfere. Many do not. If your vehicle exhaust conflicts with the outrigger simply reroute your exhaust. The factory hanger may still be utilized.

The guards bolt to the rear crossmember and the JATE ring mounting points on the frame.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1765.JPG

The channel is notched to accommodate the braces for the body panels and the driverside mounting bracket is cut out for the exhaust hanger.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1757.JPG

The channel is radiused to match the eyebrow.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1778.JPG

The upper edge of the channel is not parallel to the perfectly horizontal edges of the bodywork. To make the channels so would require that the guards be unnecessarily large and conspicuous. Instead the upper edge slopes subtly downward from the crossmember to the wheel arch giving the illusion of conformity while reducing the area of the guard.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1781.JPG
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1728.JPG

The guards are produced with attention to detail.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1857.JPG
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1860.JPG

Because of the handbuilt construction of 90s and 110s, vehicle dimensions are often inconsistent.
To allow for this, clearances on the guards for body and chassis are generous.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1865.JPG
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1864.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1869.JPG

All necessary hardware for mounting is provided.
Two strips of adhesive felt are also provided should the user choose to install them on the outer edge of the guard channel to minimize any possible abrasion to the painted bodywork during installation or flex during offroad use.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1872.JPG

The guards are sufficiently strong to lift the vehicle and should minimize damage to the quarter panels during offroad use.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1878.JPG

No guarantee is furnished that you will not be able to damage your vehicle with the guards installed. If you are determined to damage your vehicle and make every effort to do so I have the utmost confidence in your abilities.
If this describes your style you will be better served by a more drastic approach to the problem.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8.../s800/buck.jpg

For those who wish to add quarter panel protection without dramatically altering their vehicle, or even for those who wish to fit protection only during offroad use, these guards are an excellent solution.

Two sets of guards are available for immediate shipment.

One set has already been furnished with adhesive felt lining the entire side of the inner channel along the body to minimize any possible abrasion to the painted bodywork during test fitment. It's a nice touch.
The first person to buy will get this set.

Those are VERY nice. I was thinking about making some for my 90.
I like that they work with or without the NAS bumper.

Thank you.
I will be producing guards for 90s, with a shorter channel radiused to match the eyebrow and no outrigger, in the near future.

I would like a set to, going to run your hitch and would like the corners to have a safe place to hide behind.

Its a great design. Bought mine used from Dale about 18 months ago. Not sure who originally made them. Mine have taken some pretty hard knocks and Dale said they got some abuse on his truck as well.

If you're going to make some then there is a tweak I would make to strengthen them even further based on my experience with them if you're interested?
