    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from, 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

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Can you drive at highway speeds with these attached or would they peel off eventually?

        • The Rugged Ridge Magnetic Protection Panel Kit is designed to protect the paint from any brush, particularly on trails. The could be used on normal commutes however, we would recommend being extremely cautious as it could come off at high speeds.

        Question on magnetic protection panel kit . What good is it when you can't drive at highway speeds . When I go hunting I drive at highway speeds at 5:00 am put the panel kit ? I ordered one I don't know if I can use it!!

        • They are very easily removed and replaced, so if you plan on driving highway speeds we suggest to remove before doing so.

        After each use is there a specific cleaning solution you suggest ?

        What about the older Jeeps... like TJ's or YJ's?

        • This will only fit on 07-18 JK Wranglers.

        Any solutions for the JL since its made of aluminum and magnesium magnets arent a good choice

        • The Rugged Ridge Magnetic Protection Panel Kit is for the JK models only not the JL. Currently we do not offer a product like this for a JL but we would suggest keeping an eye on our new product page! An alternative is also looking into a vinyl wrap, but that would be a more permanent product.

            Good product

            The panels worked great on the trails and “mostly” stayed on at highway speed to the trail head. Good protection and they look pretty good. The small pieces at the bottom of the doors are pretty worthless and fell off by the time I arrived. I did have to cut 2 of the larger panels a bit so they fit around door handles and the Trail Rated badge....the reason for 4 stars.

            I didn't know how it would work. Saves the scratches and scuffs and comes off with no problems. Takes about 20 minutes to put it on straight and does not come off even at highway speeds/

            Scratch Protector

            These magnetic panels fit well, hold their position once installed and absorb tons of “Arizona Pinstripes” on your off-road trails when facing encroaching trees, bushes, cacti, etc. They hold fast, even at highway speeds. They are heavy duty, very magnetic and work as advertised.

            So far so good. Had to trim a couple of places to fit, but cuts really easy. The smaller pieces move around a little. The look is great, but I got it for paint protection while maneuvering through tight overgrown back roads.

            Product will definitely protect the Jeep. 2 of the pieces did not fit properly. Right back door handle, the hole was incorrect and needed to be cut. Left front panel, the hole did not fit correctly over to stock emblem. Other than this 2 issues, they are great.

            Great off road protection

            these panels are pretty good . I wish they would stick a little bit better , I got one corner that lifts up a little . Not a deal breaker thou , these panels do a great job to protect your doors and side panels . I have a black 4 door jeep and totally amazed at how well it keeps my jeep clean . I got totally dusted out on night and pulled the panels off and 80 of my jeep was clean . They look great on a black jeep.

            Magnetic Side Panels

            The panels look great for a static display at a car show or just parked “supervises at home. But they are very easy to instal and to remove. This means that if you park the vehicle anywhere and leave it alone, anyone can just peel them off without any hassel and walk away. If you mount them without cleaning the surface, every little spec of dirt will show as a welt on the panel; even beach sand specs. Waste of money. I rather Rhino Line my doors.
