That's why I was looking at the stocker rockers. They work with the stock flares.

Thanks for the input guys. It is really hard to beat the crown price.
Seth, which ones do you have?

I wouldn't miss them as far as a step, since I don't use them as one, but..

Mine have saved my rig countless times. Whether it be pivoting around a tree/rock or just off camber in big rocks. If they weren't there it would be much closer to doing body damage.

But I guess it all depends on where you wheel and what the obstacles are like.

Definitely nothing hardcore yet. It seems like metalcloak has the best design for structural integrity, but I don't know if I'd even wheel hard enough to take advantage of it.

I agree, I've used mine as such many times, but Ty doesn't do the same trails as I, and doesn't seem to be planning on it any time soon. For the moderate trails around here simple rocker protection is more than enough.

Hadn't considered the moabfab ones. Seems like they're the same as the crown ones if I'm not mistaken?

I'm going Rokmen. Most protection and best design for the cheapest.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Hmm. Decisions decisions. It's hard to tell if the crown guards wrap underneath. The rokmen's are very tempting. So are the moabfab's. I think those are the top 3.

I also noticed the rokmen's say they work with all body lifts. Would I have problems with the others with my body lift? I've not read much about rockers and body lifts.
