Moabfab corner guards vs. smittybilt help

I'm looking to buy a set of corner guards. Really wanted the smittybilt full corners. But heard to many horror stories about not lining up and just the overall smittybilt quality. Have they gotten better for the corner guards anyone buy recently? My other option is the moabfab corner guards. The thing about these is that they have the holes for round taillights and blinkers. Which is nice but I want to do that at a later point. Anyone buy these?

I just installed a set of Genright full corner guards on my TJ.
GenRight, TJ Corner Guard set, Full, smooth steel, Body Armor
They come setup for factory tail lights, which is good if you do not plan to swap over to 4" tail lights until a later date. I installed 4" LED tail lights, which just required cutting a 4.5" hole with a hole saw.

There were a few selling points on these for me....inexpensive compared to some others, $310. They cover more than anyone else going toward the doors (comes to a point under the door instead of being flattened off). They come to an end where a set of rocker guards would come up to so you get full coverage from your rockers instead of the corner guards.
The fit is perfect. For me, a bonus was there are no holes for factory flares (one less thing to fill in since I am not running flares). There are also no holes drilled for the license plate mount.

You can see in this picture how they end under the doors.
The other pictures I have of them are black and other than the stainless bolt heads, you can't tell they are there.




Unlike some other brands, they end where wheel well to wheel well rocker guards would be, so you get full under-body coverage from the rockers.
If you have rocker guards that stop short of the rear wheel wells, another brand would be better.
