I like what I like. I've used the Rancho piece for years and it has served me well plus, Rancho takes care of us when we need something.
There are cheaper control arms, I like the Savvy stuff and wanted to show them off.
Fox has been good to me and I'm sure if Wayne and I put our heads together, we could make a cheaper version work as well.
Smittybilt makes a very cheap soft top, I opted to patiently wait until an affordable NIB OEM top came up on Craig's List.
The number of folks who have knocked off the Johnny Joint by our friend John Currie is nearly endless, but John takes care of us, I wouldn't think of using another joint on this build.
Several companies have knocked off the Poly shock mounts, many of them cheaper but I use Poly for two reasons, one is the engineer is the only one out of all the knock offs that called and asked the ins and out of how and why I did the first outboarding so he could apply it to their product. Second is Poly has been very good to us over the years, so I have no issue using and showing off their product.
So no, I won't be attempting to save a few bucks even if it was the identical product with a different paint color.
