I wouldn't do corner armor till it looks like you need it. Rub up on some trees a couple times till you have to paint your flares and then you're ready for tub armor. JMHO

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Hmmmm......

That's a toughy. If you're still running stock arms, get arms. Otherwise, corners. I consider them both pretty darn important so it's kind of a toss-up.

Arms!

Corner armor can wait for damage or a stretch.

My tub would be **** if I didn't have corner armor. But stock arms are weak, Zone arms are junk, and you know how I feel about bushings in that application. I say go arms and just don't do anything too dumb in the mean time to keep your tub in good shape.
