Why do you care about getting your rig so dirty when you take it off-road?

It's not about off-roading. The picture is been taken just after riding normal roads here.

The paint of the doors have got (too) many hits from sand/gravel which is came from the front tires, the paint is not so good after these years. Just want to protect it at least now.

OK I understand. Hope you find a solution!

Re: Rock sliders which would work as mud guards?

If you don't need them for actual protection off road, look at a set of the plastic running boards that came standard on some FJs. Mine have done a good job of keeping the sides clean driving through snow/dirty roads. That said, they provide no real protection off road and bolt to the body not the frame.

Wonder if something like this would help

Re: Rock sliders which would work as mud guards?

No plastic running boards, they have to be off-road capable too. And no films, thanks, I need something where I can stand.

These looks good, but this full dimple-die option is not possible any more:

Re: Rock sliders which would work as mud guards?

I run OPORs but if you want full dimple die panels look at All Pro I think they offer a full dimple die option. I really like the OPORs they offer good protection without sticking out too far, as far as stopping mud, they are the same as any of the others. The mud spray is more of a tire size issue that you're just going to have to deal with.

All Pros are shorter/not go as far front as OPORs = not good (see picture last page).

OPORs look like the pipe is at right line to prevent the most dirt which the front tire throw back. Like the other design too.

I have the OPOR's

but also try here:
https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ers-guide.html

There was one that had diamond plate across the top so that "should" block the mud - but remember, after it blocks the mud, you'll have to clean the underside

Re: Rock sliders which would work as mud guards?

Can you find someone in Finland that can fab up a pair for you to your requirements?

What size tires will fit on my FJ?

The owner's manual for your FJ is right here. <--- This is a link. Many answers to your questions are contained within.
