Has anyone investigated a more robust replacement option? I've now taken the 2 front wheel arch plastics off too on the beach (crossing a creek). Flared wheel arches that are bolted on or something? Might work with 265/60/18 AT tyres I'm putting on. Thoughts?

I looked around, but didn’t see anything available anywhere. I was going to do exactly that, replace it all with a more robust system, or maybe some rock sliders if they were available, but I didn’t see anything offered except those “magnetic armor plates” (aka magnetic signs like businesses use).

After repairing my driver side lower mounding, it hasn’t come off or loosened at all. Haven’t taken it through any deep sand, just about 10-20 miles of mild-medium ruts and a few water crossings (about knee-deep).

I have noticed that every few months (especially after a lot of miles on rocky/rough roads), I need to go around and tighten up many of the screws that hold a lot of the plastic trim pieces on, such as:
  • plastic at the bottom of the windshield/bottom of the A-pillars
  • all plastic covers on the underside of the vehicle

Nothing has actually fallen off just from driving around, though. (Knock on wood)
