Jumping on them today. Just not Rokmen. I spoke to Jeff and they're waiting on a new laser-cutter so the corners are on back-order for a few weeks. Really considering Poison Spyder. Who else has trail corners?

1/8"? Not if you plan on using them. 1/4" at least? I think you meant at most.

Was thinking about this on the way home from work. I totally forgot that 3/16" is thinner than 1/4", duhhhh. So in the end, I have to agree that 3/16" of steel doesn't sound that bad.

Going with PSC, simple install and will do what I need them for now. Like HallofStone said, next year I can sell them to afford the Rokmen full-coverage guards. Next thing in order is saving up for a new top. Going with a Rampage frameless. I think. Waiting on PSC to let me know if I can get a JF discount.

I am interested to hear if and how the discount comes into play. Will be checking back. Tub armor is on my to-do list.

Not offering one and they didn't give me a free t-shirt either

Been in Myrtle Beach since the 4th, just got back from clubbing I'll be back by the 11th. My corners have been ordered, but some online banking problems prolonged the payment process. So they may show up later. I'm a little worried about the jeeps reliability lately, I get some weird vibes on the highway. I don't know if its the KM2's or what. Maybe putting in the front DS will cure it. Speaking of tires, I need to do the chalk test!

Oh and I ordered my corners from Morris 4x4 so I got them cheaper, but lost the bonus of a t-shirt since its not an order directly from Poison Spyder. Technically I would've had to pay extra to get the t-shirt

Just got home from SC, my corners were waiting for me. Seem really solid. Now that I have them, I have to find the time to mount them up.



And while in SC....
