Jeep Wrangler RedRock 4×4 Cowl Body Armor – Pair (2007-2016 JK) Review & Install

Hey guys, I’m Kevin from ExtremeTerrain and
this is my review of the RedRock 4×4 Cowl Body Armor. Now let me say right upfront,
that I am not a fan of peel and stick accessories. They’re usually purely cosmetic and in my
mind, what’s the point? Especially in the Jeep world. However, these products may have changed my
mind on some peel and stick accessories. They’re a hard composition and they can solve a problem
and also, prevent it from happening in the first place. This Cowl Armor is designed to
fit 2007 to 2016 Wrangler and JK Jeeps and this is precisely what it’s meant for. This dimple right here is dented in the bodywork.
Well, here’s how that happened, with your doors unstrapped it’s really easy to see the
path of the mirror when the door hyper extends, it goes and makes contact with that flimsy
sheet metal and makes a dent in your bodywork. It’ll happen before you know it and it’ll
break your heart when it does. These cowl pieces fit perfectly right over
top of the cowl corners and in our case, they’ll cover that nasty little dent up and if you
don’t already have the damage, they’ll prevent it from happening in the first place because
of the hard composition. Now, installation could not be easier because,
like I said before, it’s peel and stick. And by the way, if you’re using peel and stick
adhesives, make sure your painted surfaces are completely clean before you stick the
double sided tape to them. A good glass cleaner will usually do the trick. Match up the corners, make sure you’ve got
a good, firm contact, and that’s it. Now, you may have seen similar products out on
the market, these come in at about $50 for the set and if your rig is full on lifted,
built, stripped down, in the dove tail, and is a single purpose hard core wheeling rig,
chances are this is not the product for you, you’re probably going to armor up with metal. But if you’re like most of us and your rig
is a dual purpose or you’re a daily driver, you want to protect your investment and protect
the resale value of the Jeep, dents like that on the cowl can cost hundreds of dollars to
fix and this is really good prevention. So, is it worth it? I think it’s worth it.
I think it’s a pretty good value and it looks cool doing it. So, that’s my review of the
RedRock 4×4 Cowl Body Armor.

  1. I've always back and forth on these. They serve a purpose but they also scream HEY LOOK AT ME! I CAN'T REMEMBER SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS HOLDING ON TO MY DOOR. I'll change my mind on these when I dent my cowl, we all do lol.

  2. Yup I swung my door open to far and made a dent in mine as well, I seen these in your guys mag you send me and thought maybe I should buy a pair. Now that I seen this video and I know how easy it is lol I think I will buy a set.

  3. I added higher quality 3m auto tape to mine, I have seen these come off with just the tape that comes with them. I just put a set on my 2014, because I too put the dentist in my 2009 right after I got it. lol not happening to this one. haha

  4. Just put on a pair of bushwacker ones. They are flat and sit flush. Much better than these things. Helps that my jk is black so it matches the flares and roof offsetting the gloss black perfectly. That looks like shit.
