    ZL1 addons sent my splitter guards right out after ordering. They look cool, going to get them in asap.

    Just installed mine finally. Pretty easy to install. Took me about an hour total. Only thing I don't like is #1 the blocks don't sit flush with the edge of the splitter. Prolly sit about 1/8" lower. #2 the screw that goes thru the protector and into the block continues up into the splitter. So if for any reason I ever wanted to remove these for some unforseen reason there will be 5 small holes in the underside of my splitter. I know it's not a big deal but just want to make everyone aware

    Also, for the 2 outside ones I had to grind down the washer a bit cuz it was too big to fit there. And one of the short ones the bolt hole wasn't recessed like the others so took me a couple minutes to catch a thread. Hopefully it holds. Finally, #2 and 4 I wish there was a way to tighten them with the rubber still in. When I put the rubber close out back in it kinda sits on the block. So maybe those coulda been a tad shorter. This is me just being anal

    Here are pix of the non recessed screw and the rubber over the block. In the rubber over the block pic u can kinda see how that screw is recessed a bit to compare to the other one.

    I found the same with the washers and slight interference with the close out plugs but it didn't concern me or I would have modified the end of the block.
    Despite being careful, mine tagged the concrete at the bottom of my driveway on about the 3rd trip. So well worth the price and install time.

    Would you be able to get a picture from roughly those angles but far enough back to see the entire unit?

    I installed the splitter guards today from ZL1 ADDONS.
    They went on pretty easy,
    the two outside ones that are longest where tight to the edge of the splitter but with some force I was able to push them up to the splitter and run the self tapping screw in. The screw is under considerable tension though and I wonder if I should have modified the end of the protector deal by filing it or grinding to create some space. I would say that ground clearance is reduced by about 1/2" by putting these on.
    Heres a couple bad pictures sorry about the quality.
