Axle Guards

Has anyone found a company that make guards for the axles or the a arms for the new arched arms?

Yep, Ricochet it where its at. Go ahead and get the footwell guards too (or the full set) if you run any woods, brush and rocks. Sticks will try to come up through the footwells in thick stuff.

I went with Baltic. They are the plastic version, they are very beefy. Seems like either way is a good choice, just depends if you want aluminum or plastic.

Yeah, bought mine through “off road body armor”. Really cool guy. He’s a distributor for iron Baltic.

Did your rear gaurds fit very tight around the A arms ? I've installed my front ones but not the rear yet the front fit perfectly but the tears seem very tight.
