Cool Icon Shinguards ? ?

anyone looked at these:

ICON Vehicle Dynamics

I'd like to protect my new, expensive 2" SAW rear shocks, and these prevent stones from pitting the lower shock rods, but.... the way these are made, and in only 12 gauge stainless, it looks to me the shin guard would be easily folded back onto the shock rod, then have the shock body come down and strike it, IF you ran one into a rock.

They sit pretty low, so it's certainly possible to run these into an obstacle.

Anyone?

Re: Icon Shinguards ? ?

hey essence, you're right, I'm on a fjrenzy for sure.

actually, I'm the type that detests the look of a stock Honda Civic with a carbon fiber wing. I've got brand new lights coming out and hate to photograph them on a boring stock vehicle. I'm in Mission Viejo, would love to join you guys. my brother-in-law too, he got me into the FJ, he just got one too.

nicest vehicle I've ever owned, and loving it!

I've held the shin protectors in my hand and they were pretty light-weight, so I wouldn't put much faith in them. Also, they may not fit with your SAW shocks. I may be thinking of another shock, but it seems like that one is pretty thick down there.

Re: Icon Shinguards ? ?

I have the shinguards over my 2.5 piggyback icons and they work good, they have both taken rock hits and they held up fine. I know of one that bent from a hit up high and icon replaced it (not on my FJ). So far they have done what they were made for.
