Btf

ok I need know about how good the rocker guards are from BTF, coverage, how do they compair to PSC's guards, etc... if anyone has these on and could offer some advice that would be great.

also what do ya'll think about the coverage and durability of the BTF tube fender kit? are they wide like PSC's or really narrow like a comp crawler?

both are well priced at $219.99, so let me know what you think. thanks in advance

I installed both the DIY tube fender kit and the rocker guards with comp corners from BTF and am very happy with the material quality. They are very strong! The tube fenders are the same width as the body itself, so if you take the flared off of your fenders, that is how wide they are. I think that I only paid $175 for the tube fender kit from BTF though... Maybe prices have gone up in the last few months.

The BTF rockers have better protection over the PSCs. I had the PSCs awhile back and beat on them pretty good. The durability was there but the BTF set does provide further protection under the tub.

The DIY tube fenders are easy to install. Hardest part is mounting everything back to them that was on the stock inner fender. I would suggest BTF over PSC for both. Only because I like them better.

and at a better price.

now its just time to wait till payday. I think that I'm going to just do the rock sliders for now with the rail cause I'm still waiting on my winch and don't know when that opp is coming along. Jeeperman your rig looks great thanks for the pics. Cliff, your advice is always welcome, thanks for the input.

I have no experience with the BTF products. From what I have heard from the ones that run them, they are a great product. The one thing that no one else mentioned about Poison Spyder, is that you are not likely to get any thing from them, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend BTF, simply because you will see your order, before the end of the decade.

I would think the locker would give you much more fun, for the $ at this point. If your not running your rig against rocks, you will be fine, with locker first, then get your sliders.

the thing is there is alot of rocks in my area (not to mention trees people try to block trails with) right now I'm running nerfbars on the TJ. however I went under and looked how they were mounted the other day and the front arm of the bar is mounted to my body mount (starting to bend it). but I do like to play in the mud and climb so you can see the perdiciment im in.

Need the protection, and need the lockers. Yeah, I agree, it is hard to choose.

Protection should always come before the ability to go far down the trail. Atleast, thats how I see it, because my Jeep is a DD and I like it to look halfway decent when its cleaned. If it was me, and I lived in TX, I would get the rockers first. Just my .02.

FYI, deffinatly get the tube fenders before you upgrade your tire size In other words, dont get a 3 inch lift, toss some 33s under the Jeep, then get the tube fenders and find out you can get 35s+ under it

well I live in oregon first of all, and I agree as far as the heep being a DD and I do like a clean looking rig. and I guess I can see where your saying that the locker should come second cause if I did decide to do the locker with my luck I would proabley try something stupid then bash the hell out of the rockers.

that is my plan for the tire upgrade to do the fenders but its always something I guess...

before I forget for anyone who is thinking about doing the same type of thing the prices with shipping (to me in oregon) is $273.13 for either the rockers or tube fenders from Blue Torch Fabworks

holes in the tub

so if I'm going to get these I am going to need to drill new holes in the side of the tub rockers. currently I have black diamond plate that is screwed into the tub. what would y'all recommend to plug these up? should I just go get some of that quick metal stuff or what?

I wouldn't worry about it, just make sure it is primered/painted good to slow down the rust, and bolt the new stuff over it. If you are that concerned about it, you can seal it with silicone or Bondo if you are worried about appearance.

well its going to be covered with the new plate so I'm not too worried about appearance but just the rust factor and if the holes overlap each other.
