Alright folks, I need some opinions please. I know they are like chocolate starfishes, and everyone has one but here goes. I have an opportunity to pick up some new OR-FAB factory seconds in a package deal for around $1K.
I have ORFab on my Jeep and they are very nice. I have the rear bumper and steps you have linked to. I have a different front bumper, and have their spare tire rack with the roto-pax gas cans. Their equipment is real sturdy and seems the fit is excellent. The tire carrier is very sturdy and opens and closes easily and has padlock security for the spare and to lock the rack when closed. I know you're not looking at the last option, but once you go to their site and check things out, you may get the bug.
I put ORF bumpers on my JK last fall. A couple of weeks ago I noticed quite a bit of surface rust on the back bumper and a bit on the front. I contacted ORF and there solution was to send me a can of rustoleum. Now I'm faced with the hassle of removing the bumpers, getting them cleaned up and repainting.
I bought the Jeep with all of the OR Fab gear on it. I can take some shots of the rack and it's attach points if you'd like. Erik, from OR Fab is a sponsor on JK-Forums. I'm not sure if it's on this forum or the JK-Forum, but one of the members went through the installation of the tire rack, with pictures. I have a 315/70R/17 BFG All Terrain TA KO on there and the rack doesn't sag. Got some pics.
I like their stuff.
Had a little snafu with their side armor that Quadratec couldnt resolve. I got really good customer service and a quick resolution to the problem from Steve, the president of OR FAB.
Got their rear bumper on my list of things to sneak past the wife.
I have their front and rear bumpers for a little over a year now. I live in Pennsylvania so our winters are long and we use a lot of road salt and chemicals, I did start getting surface rust on the front bumper already, the back still looks good so far. They were easy to install so I guess it's just a matter of getting the time to pull it off and repaint with something.
