Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Euro Guard Rear Light Guard, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of the these light guards, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches, because these are designed to be completely bolt-on and, we're also gonna talk about the construction. These light guards are gonna be for those of you who are looking to change up the look of your Jeep. These can be used either as a standalone item or as a kit. Rugged Ridge offers front light guards, turn signal, marker lights, fog lights, and, of course, a variety of other appearance parts like grill inserts, so you can use these as part of a kit or as a standalone piece. These are available in the gloss black powder coat that you see here, and also a polished finish, so you have a couple of different options as far as what look you can get. Now, the black option is very, very affordable while the polished is going to be quite a bit more expensive. Now, again, these are going to change up the appearance of your Jeep. I would now look to these to provide a ton of protection. These are going to be an added layer of protection for your rear lights against brush and sticks off road. However, if you do come in contact with anything hard, like a stump or a rock, chances are this is just going to bend and move, or it could actually cause even more damage to your Jeep. And the extra metal here can certainly cause some additional paint damage when it gets pushed into the body, so this is not going to be a protection piece. This is going to be an appearance piece. The black version of these guards are steel and, as I mentioned, covered in a gloss black powder coat, while the polished version are stainless steel, which is part of the reason that they are significantly more expensive. Regardless of which color or finish you choose, they're gonna come with the same mounting hardware, which does include some small plastic extensions to keep the guard a little bit off of your light. That provides a little bit of a nicer look and makes sure that the guard isn't going to chip [SP] the light. As we mentioned, this is a very simple one out of three wrench installation, and all you're going to need to get it done is a Phillips head screwdriver and about a half an hour of time. You'll start by removing the four screws from the taillight, then hold the taillight guard over top of the taillight with the plastic extensions in between, and finally install the new longer bolts that come with the hardware for these light guards. That's it. This is a very simple, no-drill installation, and it's completely reversible as long as you hang on to those shorter factory screws. I mentioned the price earlier of these black guards is right around $50. And that doesn't seem that bad to me for an appearance part. I generally don't like to spend a ton of money on parts that don't provide a lot of function. So for something that's just gonna change up the look of your jeep, I don't think $50 is a bad deal. When you look at the polished version of the this, because it is made of stainless steel, and it is polished, of course, they are significantly more expensive, more than double the cost. So it really comes down to what you want on your Jeep. Now there are a few different versions of taillight guards like these ones out on the market, and some minor variations. So, again, it all comes down to the look you're going for and what your budget is. So if you're looking to change up the look of your Jeep, these will work as a great standalone accent piece or as part of a full Euro Light Guard kit available from Rugged Ridge. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Euro Guard Rear Light Guards, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Superior Protection. The Rugged Ridge 11226.02 Black Rear Euro Tail Light Guard- Pair features a special design for a perfect fit around the rear light of your Jeep Wrangler JK. It includes rubber inserts that keep the metal euro guards away from the tail light to prevent scratching.

Durable Construction. Built with heavy-duty metal, Jeep Wrangler JK tail light guards come in a powder coat finish for added durability.

Easy Installation. Featuring a custom-fit design, Jeep light guards securely attach to the factory mounting points, requiring only minimal effort. These light guards are designed for use with 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK and 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK models.

NICE FITMENT FOR EURO GUARD

Easy to install vs dealer installation for $75.00. the fits right on my 2015 JK. I used a painter's tape to hold to avoid movement of the light casement.

    Solid protect

    Overall product is good. The shape wasn't quite what I expected, it has a flatter shape and I expected it to be more rounded. It also doesn't fit as snugly against the light as I expected, but I admit I'd never seen this in person. Does feel like it could be a little less expensive, but I do think they'll last a long time.

    Hardware doesn't fit 2017 jku

    The problem however is that the hardware provided(screws) isn't compatible with the 2017 jku. They don't fit properly and unfortunately the factory screws are not long enough to accommodate the rubber bumper pieces between the taillight and the guard.

    Great looking product.

    The guards are very durable and look awesome on a black jeep. This product makes a great gift because it has a very reasonable price. Not only did it take less than one hour to install, but it only took about ten minutes to install. Not only was the install fast, but it was very, very easy. The instructions that came with the product will walk you through the install perfectly.
