rear quater protection

The final stages are around the corner, just have to make room for the 39.5's. I trying to decide what to do with the rear quarters since they will be cut up. I thought about plating them with diamond plate to offer some better protection but can't find any pictures and the search is not being friendly. Can I get some pics from what other's have done? Or some advice on what worked or didn't? Thank you.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but this is what I have:

i would guess something along the lines of 1/8th -1/4. looks like it is either bolted or rivited on.

Are you running rear leafs or links?
Is the top chopped or do you have full glass?

If it hits then you want it trimmed off, or narrowed.
Clearance can be better then protection.

Right now it is full bodied. I think I am going to leave it till rocks or trees decide another direction. Right now I like the looks, thing is huge and nothing else in the area like it. The pic above is what I am going to go with but with diamond plating. Hopefully by next weekend it will be dialed in and "complete" and I will post the finished product.

I would be afraid that diamond plate would hangup on things. Not all the time but sometimes if there is to much pressure on it.
