Quarter Panel Guards for 90s

In response to demand voiced with the sale of the Quarter Panel Guards for 110s I have produced QPGs suitable for 90s.
In the past there have been satisfactory products of this kind but they are NLA and the current offerings are lacking in both craftsmanship and design. The QPGs for 90s are constructed with the same material, workmanship and finish as those I produce for 110s. They are compatible with all 90s both NAS and ROW with little to no modifications. The guards can be used in conjunction with the factory NAS rear step/hitch or the Receiver Hitch I produce.

$400 shipped in the lower 48.

Those who own 90s know just how easily damaged the quarter panels are. These soft aluminum body panels protrude over the departure angle of the trucks. Furthermore, damage to the quarter panels is difficult to repair in a manner consistent with factory construction. It is not uncommon to see an otherwise fairly clean 90 with damaged quarter panels. Some users fit unsightly chequerplate to try to reinforce the soft quarterpanels. Even then damage occurs.

Some solutions to this problem are so ugly and obtrusive that they are worse than chequerplate or a crumpled panel.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6...0/1sc00062.jpg

The QPGs for 90s, however, 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 mounted simply and securely to the rear crossmember.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-D...0/IMG_4214.JPG

The mounting brackets of the QPGs for 90s have been notched for the tub supports and exhaust hanger. Clearances are generous to accommodate the inconsistent hand-built dimensions of 90s. Similarly, the channels that surround the quarter panels are wide enough to allow for some previous damage.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-o...2/IMG_4200.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y...0/IMG_4211.JPG

Unlike prior designs that were simply cut square or at a straight angle, the channel of the QPGs for 90s are radiused to better match the gentle curve of the wheel arch.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-o...2/IMG_2902.JPG
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-q...0/IMG_4195.JPG

Because of their larger size the QPGs for 110s are made with the upper edges of the channel sloping slightly down to reduce their footprint on the truck. However, the short quarter panels on 90s allow this line to be perfectly horizontal and parallel to the sills or sliders. The resulting shape of the QPGs for 90s is very pleasing. Rather than standing out conspicuously, the guards almost seem to melt away.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-T...0/IMG_4228.JPG

The QPGs for 90s are produced with great attention to detail.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9...0/IMG_2887.JPG
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-3...0/IMG_2895.JPG

The components are cut from a master plan on a plasma table for uniformity and then expertly welded before being powdercoated gloss black.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-z...0/IMG_2891.JPG

Because of their greater size the channels on QPGs for 110s must be box constructed with more welding.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_8...0/IMG_1743.JPG
The shorter length of the QPGs for 90s makes it possible to construct the channel by rolling the bottom edges in a press using a tool steel form specially constructed for that purpose. The result is both clean and strong.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-H...0/IMG_2899.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N...0/IMG_4231.JPG
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-R...0/IMG_4232.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://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-T...0/IMG_2884.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/-0.../s640/buck.jpg

For those who wish to add quarter panel protection with the absolute minimum of inconvenience or alteration to their vehicle, or even for those who wish to fit protection only during offroad use, the QPGs for 90s are the best evolution to date of designs of this type.

Summer is here.
Protect your quarter panels or taste your own salty tears on the trail.
