have you priced out rocker panel repair lately?
Front end repair would be just as expensive without serious protection from an ARB or something similiar, thats not the comparison here.
I'd like to know why fabbing up two tubes with mounts for welding to the frame cost's in the neighborhood of $7-800.
Found the site pretty easily, they look pretty nice (really nice for the money).
ktmracer01they look good to me. as long as they're strong enough to support the weight of the vehicle without flexing up into the body seam along the bottom then they are def worth the money.
That would be my question also!
But here is the link for anyone out there, hope these were what you were talking about.
how much would it be to buy a set for 300, and then have it crush into the side of your truck wrecking both doors in the process and possibly more?
sure it stings to write the check, but you feel like B.A. Baracus when they're on and you know you'll deflect any hit without damage.
Plus, the metal techs have a nice shelf area underneath for a tank, or compressor, or battery, or tools.
MT's rule, they look sweet, and they work as a great step to get up to the roof also. The extra tube in the back works as a kickout and the steel is all laser cut and welded up sweet.
Don't trust somebody's schedule 40 pipe and a stick welder to deflect 6000 pounds plus when it comes in contact with a hunk of granite.
Would I like to see them cheapper? sure....it'll take another 3000 of us to buy them and then maybe that'll happen. ARB sells across the board to all manufacturers....can't compete quantity wise, but you make up for it in quality.
