I hit that area with a hose when I'm done bashing. I just don't like the look of the guards and you have to clean them anyway :)

The MORE dirt mud and debris hitting the drive shaft dog bone & cvd FASTER THEY WEAR OUT !!
keep the entirety of the lower a arms and drives from getting a direct hit from the roost from front tires is IMO a VERY SMART way to reduce your Cost as well Time in maintaining your vehicle.

As to WASHING .... say GOOD BYE to a set of wheel bearings every time you do !

Lets see ...
8 jacked up wheel bearings = $8
2 center diff bearings = $2
8 differential bearings = $8
4 Steering post bearings = $4

AND A WHOLE LOT OF LABOR ! because you were worried about dirt and mud deciding to take a hose to your rig and wash it.

Now it one runs and runs some more and in knowing it's time to do a full tear down and service ... sure wash it !
But too make the argument of i don't need rear a-arm debris deflectors because i'll just wash it and there only a Buck each ... that is just a very weak argument.

Just sayin .... do as you wish beings it's your money & time

Yeah, I've never had to replace my bearings after a hosing.

You must be reading this different then ? I read No guard & wash ... lol
He said he doesn't like how they look, which is a personal opinion. He's also completely right, you do still have to clean them, specially when coming home from a heavy bashing outing in a dirt/mud area or a clay or dirt track environment where they wet down the track between runs and that stuff cakes right on. (Air compressors don't do the job at all).

So again, his stating personal preference of how they look is a far cry from "arguing" with you or telling you "you don't need them." I guess you just read it wrong. Also I'm done debating with you as well now as it's just silly at this point.
