They look like the guards for the 3rd Gen Tacomas, but the shock is too close to the mount on the bottom, and the guards are too bulky. I'm guessing that the '10-'14 mounts are further forward to eliminate this problem. Like I said, It's no biggie. I've never hit one so hard that it damaged it in the past and I think the guard being made of plastic is a perishable commodity anyways, and really only protects the bolt head from being rounded off on an obstacle.:cheers:
Did you install the spacers? I overlooked those at first and had issues getting the guards to fit. They're supposed install before the shock to give room to mount the guards.
