We have been SUPER busy here at ROKMEN lately, with finishing up the Unlimited for EJS, getting product out the door so folks can hit the trails for the first run of the season....as well as working on some new products we hope to release soon. This is the first of several items Dave and I have been scheming on for a while.
Introducing the new ROKMEN line of HopLite(tm) Armor, made from 6061 T6 Aluminum. The steel vs. aluminum debate, and its practicality for use on off road vehicles, has been beaten to death. For the most part we feel steel has its place, and so does aluminum, it just depends on the application.
Hoplite - Heavily armed infantry soldiers of the Greeks
Hoplon - The principle shield of the Hoplite heavy infantry warrior
HopLite™ Full corners are made from 6061 T6 Aluminum and will have all the same features as our current Mercenary steel version. For those interested in the weight difference –it is approximately 40lbs for a SWB and 50lbs for a LWB over steel.
The HopLon™ rails, machined from billet 6061 T6 Aluminum, match up to both our steel and aluminum full corners, giving you another option for reinforcing the top edge of the tub.
We’ll post pricing and availability very soon, so keep an eye on the vendor section, or sign up for our newsletter.
