Just wondering (Jeepspeed related)

I think I covered the rules pretty good. I found some decent armor and would like to know if it allowable. I see there is definately pro and cons in running them. I'm just curious. www.slickrockgear.com

I don't know if they're allowed, but don't you think that weight would be a big factor against you there?

Extra weight? What pros are worth that?

Well that is one of the cons that first popped into my head. However by adding an additional hundred or so pounds it seems like a good sacrifice to make a vehicle more structurly sound. I dunno, just food for thought.

Your cage and welded reinforcements make the vehicle structurally sound. Bolt on stuff like that is just extra weight. Leave that stuff for your trail rig.

I doubt that anyone would complain about you running it but I think it would be a negative. What I see happening is someone nerfing you in the rear quarter and that big panel is more rigid so it will concentrate the load up in a part of the unibody that is more difficult to repair. outer sheet metal damage isnt gonna slow ya down any and is easier to repair. Less weight unless it is a critical part I think.

On the other hand if the company wants to pay you to run it along with some big stickers that may be another story.

The front would be legal, but it looks like the rear requires some triming on the wheel opening and that would be illegal.

Thanks for looking (I make these).
When I came up with the idea for these I never had Jeepspeed in mind. Others have said it in this thread, Very heavy (fronts are 25lbs each, rears are 36lbs each). As per rules, I don't think they would be allowed, also front glass fenders would give you more room. These were meant to open up the wheel wells and give tire coverage and add side impact protection for playing in the rocks.
