Poison Spyder JK Body Armor is recommended equipment for any JK venturing into off road situations where body damage is eminent. JK Body Armor protects the thin factory sheetmetal with rugged, precision-fit 3/16 inch plate steel or aluminum. Used by itself, JK Body Armor hugs the Jeep's body contours to provide protection with no loss of ground clearance. Used with the factory Rubicon rocker rails, the JK Body Armor helps prevent trail damage that can be caused by rocks pushing the factory rocker rails up into the body. And used with Poison Spyder's JK Rocker Knockers, the JK Body Armor provides one more line of defense for your JK, in the most complete, strongest, best looking package of rocker panel protection gear available for the JK. JK Body Armor is manufactured from either 3/16 inch high pressure steel plate or 3/16 inch 6061-T6 aluminum plate. Steel is preferred where the JK Body Armor will be installed by itself, without Rocker Knockers or other rocker panel protection. Aluminum is recommended where Rocker Knockers, the stock Rubicon rocker rails or other rocker panel protection will also be used. The aluminum pieces are much lighter weight (27 lbs. lighter for the 4-door versions), yet still provide excellent load distribution characteristics when used as a secondary barrier in conjunction with external rocker rails. Both steel and aluminum versions may be painted or powdercoated prior to installation, but only the aluminum ones may be installed raw without any protective coating. They may also be polished or clear-coated at the installer's discretion. Both steel and aluminum parts are CNC-laser cut and precision brake-formed for a precise fit to the unique contours of the JK body. Bolt holes are countersunk, and stainless steel flat head cap screws are supplied for a clean, flush-surface installation. Drilling of the body is required for installation.
exactly what I thought it would be, thinner than advertised but does the job fine.
1.0Flimsy not 3/16 aluminum as advertised
The skins are super flimsy, advertised as 3/16th aluminum but when I compare to 3/16 steel plate they look closer to 1/8th thick.

5.0Great addition to my 2018 Rubi!!
Thought about buying this for a couple months because I was worried about drilling into the sheet metal( not very mechanically inclined). After watching the video on installation by poison spider, decided to buy it.. install was pretty easy. just a little lengthy due to prep work and taking my time. Definitely buy a nutsert tool!! made life easy after making sure to have other needed items... cannot be happier with the price and result!! (extreme terrain sells it for about $100 more)
5.0Picture not accurate
Awesome body armor made for the JT. The pics all show JL body armor but I received JT armor that covers fender to fender. It is a little bit thinner than the armor for my JK but I would still buy it again.
Just ordered poison spyder rocker guards. I was wondering do they come with a sticker or some way to make the spider logo have a red background like the white Jeep in the reviews ?
Answer this question
No, you just have to buy some quality red vinyl sticker.. if you go on the poison spider website they have a great tutorial on the install with sticker application
No they do not. He either had vinyl made to stick behind the rocker or painted that area of the tub.
