New from Rugged Ridge – the Steel Body Armor Cladding for 2007-2017 Wrangler JK. This heavy duty steel plate offers a high level of protection for vulnerable rocker panels. See more details below.
Rugged Ridge, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep, truck and off-road parts and accessories, today announced the availability of its new Steel Body Armor Cladding for 2007-2017 Wrangler JK / JKU models to its line of exterior body armor products.
Designed with the off-road Jeep enthusiast in mind, new Steel Body Armor Cladding is built from heavy duty three millimeter thick steel plate to provide a high level of protection to vulnerable rocker panels, an area commonly damaged in even mild off-road environments. The Steel Body Armor Claddings sectional construction for a tighter fit and easier installation, with only slight drilling required and can be used with OE or aftermarket flares, as well as Rugged Ridge Armor Fenders.
Each section of armor cladding is treated to a durable black powder coat to guard them from rust, corrosion and any threats the trail may pose; providing long-lasting protection despite severe conditions. Stainless button-head hardware attaches the armor securely to the body and allows for a quick install.
“We engineered the new Steel Body Cladding to offer extended protection and functionality to the armor,” states Eric Russell, Product Engineer at Omix-ADA/Rugged Ridge. “Obviously, not everyone is going to go wheeling in their JK but we want to provide extra protection just in case.”
The Rugged Ridge Steel Body Armor Cladding is backed by an industry leading five-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts & accessories retailers nationwide with an MSRP of $266.99 for the JK 2-door and $333.99 for the JKU 4-door.
