    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Magnetic Protection Panel Kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. There is, of course, a version of this kit available for those of you with the 2-door JK and those of you with a 4-door JK. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this kit, which of course, is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. As it said in the name, these are magnetic and designed to just stick right on the outside of your Jeep. We're also gonna talk through a few of the features of this kit and the construction. This kit is for those of you who are looking to protect the side of your Jeep from that custom pin-striping you can get, from driving off-road and on a narrow trail, where you have branches and brush dragging down the side of your vehicle. Now, I know a lot of you are saying, "It's a Jeep, what are you worried about? Wear those scratches with honor, If you don't have some scratches and some dings, you're not doing it right." I know that's the mentality of a lot of you guys. However, there is a large group of people who use their jeep on road and off road. And when they're on road, they want them to look good. And they don't wanna have to spend hours and hours after the end of a weekend of wheeling, buffing all of the scratches out. And that's where this kit comes in. This is something that you can very easily slap on the side of your Jeep, this will take all the punishment from the trail ride, and then you can easily peel it off, and you don't have to buff all of the scratches out. In my opinion, for what this does and for what it saves you in time, or even money if you had to pay somebody else to buff the scratches out, this is well worth it, if you're somebody that has one of those dual purpose rigs and wants to keep your paint in good condition. This kit is made of 16 gauge magnetic material, that's covered in a matte black vinyl, and it is really designed to hold up well, and to take some abuse on the trail. In fact, Rugged Ridge does give this a five-year warranty, so you know, when you're coming out of pocket for that initial investment, this isn't something you're going to have to replace every season. You are going to get some ware out of these. Now, these are specifically cut for your JK. So, they have cut outs for your handles, your door handles, your locks, your door hinges, even your antenna, all of those areas are gonna have openings. So, these are gonna fit right on the side of the jeep very, very easily. Now, you will want to make sure that the paint on your Jeep is pretty clean, because when you put these on, if you slide them around a little bit and there's some grit in between the magnetic and the paint, you can cause some scratching. But once you do have them in place, these are gonna take all of the scratches, they're gonna take all the dirt, they're gonna take all the abuse instead of your paint. So, as they said for installation, of course, a very simple one out of three wrenches. I would recommend putting these on a clean surface, but once the Jeep is clean, all you need to do is line these up and put them on the side of the jeep. They're magnetic, they stick right where you put them. There's no tools necessary, you'll get these installed in less than 15 minutes. They'll come off in just about the same amount of time, there's really nothing to be installed. I said before, I think that these are appropriately priced, and especially when you consider the alternative. If you're somebody who wants your paint to be in really good condition when you're on road, but you wanna run some trails that might be a little bit narrower on the weekends, you're gonna spend a lot of time polishing your paint, and buffing it back up to a shine. Or if you're not gonna do it, you're gonna have to come out of pocket and pay somebody else to. So, for the one time investment for these that will save you a lot of time and/or money, I think that this is a pretty good buy. So, if you have a dual purpose rig, or you're just somebody who wants to be able to protect your paint on the weekends so the Jeep still looks good without those pinstripes during the week, this is going to be a appropriately priced kit, that will install very easily. So, that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Magnetic Protection Panel Kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

      Good, but not perfect.

      These will help to keep your paint scratch free when driving near small branches and such, but they are not perfect. The cut out around the right rear door handle of mine did not match the left rear door handle. I had to lay one over the other and cut it to match. Pro, easy to cut with a sharp blade! You most likely will have to move your Trail Ready badge. If you removed it already, you will be left with a round, empty hole. They should probably just leave it uncut and give you a template for the badge.

      QUESTIONABLE FIT

      I wouldn't recommend this product. First it arrived damaged from the manufacture due to packing. Had to ship it all back waited for new shipment. Didn't have time to check if all panels fit. When installed at the trail one of the panels cutout was way off had to cut to fit. When I contacted Rugged Ridge customer service they said I needed to pry off the medallion and relocate to fit the cutout. No mention of this in the instructions. Asked about a replacement panel none available, only option because I modified buy new set. So unless your willing to modify your jeep to fit their cutouts don't buy this product.

      Magnets melt

      We bought the magnets for my 2014 jku, they performed awesome when we went off roading, all I expected. I loved the way the looked. Yes the small ones under doors would slide off by means of getting in and out of jeep. The big disappointment was when we tried to take them off after being on the jeep for 2 weeks on the Texas sun, we had some of them melted to the jeep. I have a piece that will not come off. I just wonder why there was no warning that this could happen.

      Desert pinstripe protection

      Found this product online and gave it a try. Turns out to be one of the best items i've gotten for my JKU. I love joining the Jeep club on their multiple runs through the desert but have always been reluctant to go as I'm worried about the paint on my newer jeep that I use daily on the street as well. It doesn't cover every surface and the smaller pieces tend to get displaced when climbing in and out, but it is as good as you'll ever get. The product even looks good enough to leave on between Jeep runs. .I would highly recommend this product to everyone.

      Rugged Ridge Mag Armor

      Don’t waste your money. Showed up scuffed, creased, and magnets wouldn’t even stick. Retuned and ordered Smittybilt Mag Armor for roughly the same price. Works great

      Great Idea

      For anyone that goes off road in wooded or brush areas this is a great idea. They look nice and very easy to put on. I do not understand why the driver side piece that goes behind the left front tire does not have a 'hole' for the trail rated badge in the correct place. You have to remove the trail rated badge and reapply it in the area already cut out for it on the panel. Also, I should have checked the box better though as one (1) piece was missing. The small piece that goes on the driver side below the gas cap area. Unfortunately I didn't look at it all for several months after I received it as i was not going off road.

      WORST EVER

      THESE THINGS ARRIVED FOLDED AND BENT AND MOST WERE CRACKED TOO. THE ONE PIECE THAT SEEMED OK WAS ONE DESIGNED TO FIT AROUND THE JEEP SIDE LOGO AND IT WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO A FIT. IF THERE WERE A MINUS STAR RATING THIS SUPER POOR PRODUCT WOULD WIN IT.

      Magnetic Protection Panel Kit

      The panels give it a great look and make heads turn. The only issue are the little pieces that go at the bottom. I just leave those off after losing one.

      Don't Waste Your Money On This Product

      I just received this product. As I was separating the panels from packaging one of them caught the door handle opening and did a paper cut right through to the outer edge. I couldn't believe what I just saw. It was not like I was being rough. I was just laying them down on a flat surface to flatten them out because they are shipped rolled up. If you have to be that careful just to un-package them how will they survive with taking them off and on and storying them. Very disappointed!

      Great product. Installed in 10 minutes. Fit was very good. Small pieces do move and I had one that just won't stay but big pieces work great and are very effective.

      Looks great

      I do like the look it gives my yellow jeep - reminds me of Bumblebee on the Transformers movie! LOL It does a pretty nice job of protecting my paint - though I will the magnets were stronger. The smaller pieces move even when I drive on the highway and get pushed around when anything touches them. I would suggest some tape to hold them. (at least the pieces under the doors)
