Has anyone made their own corner guards? I can get diamond plate pretty inexpensive, compared to the cost of buying through a 4x4 shop. I have a brake for doing right angle bends but not the radius. Do you know what the radius is for a CJ5 ? I wondered if I could make a male and female mold and bend it on a hydraulic press?
 
If you have a metal fab place near you they should be able to bend or roll it to the right circumfrance.
 
Look at my CJ8 build in my photo shop and look how I Bent my 14 guage
