I have the smittybilt mag armour. It does a great job with all the narrow trails and saves your paint from the alder and smaller brush. The smaller pieces that are supposed to cover the rocker panel don't get great adhesion and will fall off. I just leave them off. The main down side is they can wreck your paint if there is any dirt on the jeep before you put them on. And if you leave them on for a long time your paint can be discoloured.

There is also a company in Langford called trailscales. They make the same product, but in a vinyl style application that is more permanent. They have some options for printed patterns as well, though I prefer black.

Thanks. That's great info to have. I figured that there may be discoloration but I had not thought about dirt already on the paint causing damage.

If you are looking for a permanent application I would look into the trail scales.
