It's almost impossible to get around it Justin. My bumpers are Smittybuilt and nerfbars are Rugged Ridge, also made in China. It is just the way it is.

They do look good

I'm looking pretty closely at Rockmen right now. Their quality is exceptional and their prices are very reasonable, compared to Warn and Teraflex. I will probably be getting both their belly pan and their gas tank skid. The gas tank skid will gain me about an extra inch and a half of clearance and another inch of room to push back my rear axle. The reviews of their products on JeepForum are outstanding.

just reread what i wrote, and didnt mean to make it seem like they aren't nice sliders. they do look nice. i just have a hard time spending the price anyone asks for those when all's they are is simple cuts and a welds, maybe 45 in materials. the ones i have, i know they aren't the best looking but hey they're armor not a fashion statement, i spent a whopping 30 bucks

That I can believe Having that six wobbling around on a floor jack is not something I am looking forward to. If I use a kit it will probably be the JKS. Have to price out materials to see if it is worth fabricating.

Don't miss the price reduction on the belly pan. It hasn't shown up on their site but you can find it in the dealer forum.
