I agree with you MLJeeper that the guys that build half assed crap generaly hang them selves. At the same time 50$ rocker guards are better than no rocker guards and they wont harm the reliability of the jeep.
There are times to be cheep and times to rape the wallet. Each has there own boundries.
Building a rig on a budget doesnt mean it wont be reliable, just have to put the cash where it counts, this is whare most fail. No one will gripe on the trail about locked d44s and 235x75s but 35s and a blown up dana 35 40miles from pavement will get you a some nasty looks!
