Default Poison Spyder Crushers quarter corners

I finally got off my ass and put these on as I had bought them last December after thrashing one corner up at OSTC on the opener.

Not really much to them really. remove the wheel well skirt to access the inside where the nuts go. I also had to remove the evap can tray to get at the 3 bolts on the right corner closest to the tailgate. Clamp in place, mark holes, drill, prep, and bolt on.

My biggest worry was prepping on this one as I'm sure rust would love to form under these. I roughed up and primed/painted underneath to make it nice and pretty and also thru another 2 coats of gloss black on the corners as my luck with powder coating sucks.




I'm glad I got the quarters and not the full corners right now. We'll see if that holds true down the road though.

size and potential for accelerated rusting. with the other pieces of armor I have along the side I think the full corners would have been overkill/unnecessary.

Default Hmmmm

I have the full corners to install still.

Being Fiberglass ...I am not concerned about rust

Debating on spray bomb black or powder coat in some kind of color? The Jeep is Ford Blue.

I am going to add some kind of steel bar on the inside of the tub to support them, so the weight doesn't pull the bolts thru the fiberglass with time.

Why dont you just seal them to the body so that moisture doesnt get between the 2.. eliminating the rust worry.

well typically you silicone the top and leave the bottom open...

My guess is that water will get in somehow.....water always wins....and I won't know it....and then since it's sealed....and it got in and can't run out as easy....it would make it worse?

No?

The body ain't gonna rust....and I'd imagine it would take a long ass time for the panel to rust thru from the back?

I was going to silicone bead the top edge after it was done, but my thought was without a means of venting the water would not drain downward properly.

I am planning on putting some of these on mine as well. I was thinking about using some of the Duplicolor bed liner coating on the backside. I'm thinking with the rubber coating would keep most of the moisture out. I may be wrong though.

Good point.....But I think with the entire bottom open it would be fine?

I'm looking at a set of these too. I was thinking of using some kind of tar coating on the back side. I guess my thought is if you coat the whole thing, there's no voids to hold water.

I am gonna test fit them first to see how much "slack" there is

A buddy with a fiberlgas body says his had a ton of slack, to where he put 1/4" foam rubber backing to fill in the void.

Hoping for not that much slack

I got mine because I dented the shit out of the one corner. No way I was going to be able to seal it nice unfortunately.

I'll be sealing the top edge this weekend and leaving the bottom open....water will find a way...I was more concerned about mud working its way in and then rubbing the crap out of the inside causing eventual breakdown of the paint/metal.

I guess that will happen anyway...but the sealer will make the top look better me thinks...

I have a lot to fill...

I was the one that had to put a spacer between the body and crusher corner. I think the mold for the tub (4 wheel hardware tub) may have been off. Don't know for sure. I used 1/4" solid rubber sheeting and that made the radius of the body fit perfect to the Poison corner. Also had an added benefit. It protects the tub pretty nicely. I had taken the right side off not long ago and there was no moisture or debris at all in there. It may be something for others to try with steel bodies only using 1/16" rubber. Got mine from Champion rubber on Haggerty if anyone wants to be the test rat.

I have the full length ones and I'm really not concerned about rusting at all to be honest.
