Rock Guard

I noticed in a few of the Forum pictures, some people have installed what looks like a fabric rock guard on the lower front corners of their Escape. Is this a factory option, does this work, and is it even necessary, as I don't see it on too many?

thanks

Jack

They are vinyl, with a thin foam backing, or at least mine are.
After five years, mine look pretty beat up, stained, dirty. I only put them on if I'm running 35k of gravel road.
But, I'm also not that concerned with a few rock chips.

I believe they come standard if you do not get the front storage box. The box has a LineX coating and absorbs the impact of objects.

The covers are fastened with snaps and remove easily. Particularly easy if you lube the snaps with a little silicone spay and only use a flat blade to pry the stubborn ones, versus pulling them off. I have had my local canvas shop replace a few snaps I forced.
