Rock Guards? Are you speaking of the guards for the front of the rear fenders or of what are also called Mud Flaps?

This are for the engine tehy look like skid plates and a left and right grade, they could be also called secure plates. My car never had them. I wonder if they were just removed over the course of years. I have a pic

Gottcha...I always called those skid plates, but rock guards is fine. As Pedro mentioned, all THINGS had them, but they only fit engine cases with the bolt holes drilled and tapped for them. I think that is AM, Universal and some Bus cases.
