OR-Fab Gecko Skin Jeep JK Wrangler Body Armor
Front-end and body protection is a common upgrade for Jeep enthusiasts who crawl over extreme terrain. While most Jeep owners add front and rear bumpers for added protection, there are times when the vehicle’s rear quarter panels can get dented or scraped while maneuvering through narrow passes. It’s for this reason that OR-Fab designed its new rear quarter body armor for two- and four-door model Jeep JK Wranglers. The rear quarter armor is manufactured from laser-cut 10-gauge steel, and it provides excellent protection while also enhancing the vehicle’s appearance.
The quarter armor fits all 2007 to 2012 model JK’s and installs by simply using it as a template to mark and drill the holes on the vehicle. OR-Fab also suggests using its synthetic liner (an added option), between the armor and the Jeep’s body, to further protect the area from small particles of dirt and moisture. OR-Fab provides rivet-nuts in the kit that are used to secure the bolts to the Jeep’s sheet metal. They also provide a rivet-nut tool that properly crimps them into position, and makes the job much easier.
The liner and body armor is then placed into the Jeep and the stainless-steel bolts provided in the kit are inserted. The LED taillights tie into the factory wiring harness using crimp wire connectors, and a resistor that allows the LED lights to flash correctly with the vehicle’s turn signal indicator.
OR-Fab’s rear quarter armor comes in a complete kit that includes LED taillights, stainless-steel button-head bolts and a rivet-nut tool. Jeep owners wanting the most protection can use the OR-Fab rear quarter body armor that is equipped with a 1.5-inch diameter, .120 wall steel rock-slider tube. The armor is also available without the rock slider and in a raw steel version that allows the owner to install their own LED taillights. The OR-Fab armor also fits on Jeeps with aftermarket fenders, as well as with OR-Fab’s spare tire carrier systems.
