Based on that, I'd go for rocker guards that are reinforced inside like my Savvy rocker guards are.
My first rocker guards from 4XDoctor seemed beefy but the more rock crawling I did, the more they bent and the more my rockers underneath them bent and creased.
You can see the inside brace on my previous TJ that Savvy's rocker guards use to stiffen/strengthen them. Savvy's use both T6 6061 aluminum next to the body and a steel outer rocker that bolts to the inner aluminum part. They are pretty much BOMBPROOF and far stronger than my previous steel rocker guards. The pics show my previous TJ stolen two years ago, I'm running the same setup on my replacement TJ.
I kept the natural color on my previous TJ but they are black on my current TJ. Those are Savvy Offroad aluminum corner guards by the way.
