Installed the LCA guards today. I know some people say they aren't needed, but I like the way they look. EASY install although they forgot to send me lock washers as described in the directions. Nothing a $1.50 and a trip to Lowes couldn't fix. Still, I would have preferred them to be in the package.

Congrats! They look great! As far as missing washers, you could have emailed Brad and he would have sent the hardware. Also, if the need ever arises to replace hardware, email Brad and I'm sure he will assist.

As far as people saying the LCA skids are not necessary, I put mine to the test this summer, they took damage (scrapes and scuffs), the LCA did not and is in perfect condition. I'm glad I have them !!!

IMO it provides an additional layer of protection to a keep component. Well worth the money!!

cheers cheers cheers

David,
What's the deal with the orange? Obviously, they stand out better and if it were me I'd want them to stand out too... so people knew I serious about off-roading (even though I'm not YET)

I only see black as an anodized option on the website... Can we pick other colors? Also I see custom waterjet work on some I've seen around the web... and yours too so I guess these are both add-on options?

When you order them, you can specify orange anodizing. The anodozing is and add on and the logo cutout can be of anything provided that Brad from Ricochet reviews it and thinks it can be done.

Brad is on the forum here, he goes by "cnckart", so you could PM him as well.

Hope this helps!

David

It will be after tires and lift but it's on the list. I gotta wear these tires out to justify to the boss so it will be a while.

I as well. They make the front end look tougher. I am sure they provide protection too.

I sent Brad a PM a few days ago about the missing hardware we talked about. Anxiously awaiting a reply!!

I decided after such good reviews, to put a Ricochet front bash plate and engine skid on my Christmas List.. I like to point my girlfriend in the right direction!! lol

Im not a fan of the bar metal look but Im not sure what colors wouldnt look completely ridiculous on my "man purple" rig. I was thinking maybe black but you wouldnt even be able to see it.

Any thoughts??????

Be safe and go with black. You can always spray it man purple if you want.

Was going to put mine on tonight but the lock waskers were missing as well. I left a message for Brad tonight but I assume I'll be better off going to Lowes as well! Rolling Eyes
