dont waste your money on smittybuilt, my buddy has the tube fenders and they have started to rust pretty bad in 6 months and they havent even seen snow yet... for armor i would look at Poison spyder,Savvy,MetalCloak, Rokmen, A to Z fab, etc

Still not good, all their products have a terrible powdercoating covering cheap chinease metal, trut me, others will agree.Now that i think about check out TrailGear, they have similar prices but much better quality, not the best but i would run there stuff

what i mean is that they are not the #1,top rated, best selling brand but are still great. If that makes sense lol Kinda like a good walmart brand that has nothing wrong with it, that ppl still buy and use everyday but its not the top dog. Simple answer: they make good stuff and there prices are tolerable.

Rokmen and Savvy seem to be universally praised on this forum. I have many of the Rokmen products and there quality is superb.

I just got my smittybilt "crap" as some have put it and like it. It's a touch on the thin side but you would have to head on a big rock several, several, several times to make it to where it would be unuseable. IMO for the prices the "crap" is well worth the money. I know I'm going to catch hell about this post so let the comments begin, but I will still stand by my decision to buy the xrc front and scr rear bumpers that I have.

- I will be installing these hopefully on Sunday so I will post up pics after the install.

i have the entire rokmen2.5 lift and underarmour setup. it is absolutely
the best money ive ever spent on this jeep, or any of my 5 jeeps. the trails
at moab, and around denver, have been much easier with this setup, and if
you get the chance to see their products up close, you would be crazy to try
anything else! go check their website, they have some video links to youtube
of their stuff being made, and some nice install videos. i took a tour of thier
place, and was blown away by the quality of work they do.
there are other quality parts out there, but they sold me on their stuff!
(i went in just to buy a winch bumper, and walked away with bumper, lift,
and belly tuck skids and underarmour!)

no idea which is actually stronger. most people use aluminum because it is
lighter. ive always used steel, because its stuck (wrongly) in my head that
it is better. but i still cant get it out of my head, coz im stubborn . if im not
mistaken, aluminum is usually more $$$$. maybe this has changed too?
bottom line, which one do you like better? i like my rokmen front winch bumper,
because it works for me and if it gets scratched on the trail, its a spray can
fix. how easy is that?

for the same thickness steel is WAY stronger than any aluminum. I like metalcloak and poison spyder stuff.

I've worked aircraft for 25yrs. steel is stronger than aluminum. and that phrase is just that. it's same quality as what's in most aluminum products. the stuff still cracks and breaks just the same. steel isn't gonna crack or break unless you're doing some real damage.

As the name implies a roller fairlead has rollers and a fixed fairlead doesn't. Use the computer to find pics online at any off road suppliers web site.
