Savvy vs. Rokmen Aluminum Corner Armor

Well the title says it all. I am after some corner armor after a few close calls this weekend. So give me some possitives and negativezs. Hey, if anything give me soe alternatives. Something "chEEp" if their is such a thing in the jeep world. I am looking for excellent coverage and strength. I dont think that their is a good thread comparing and giving negatives on some brands that people should really know. So now is your time and I need some direction, be my compass.

same product. both companies are quality, rokmen has excellent customer service. I think they are priced similar. Call both Dave (Rokmen) and Gerald (Savvy) and see who will give you the best price.

I like those rub rails. If they work with the TNT corners, consider a set sold once they are released and I've got money in the Jeep fund again.

Let's not clutter the OP's thread. I created a separate thread for the rails.

I don't know of any negatives with either brand and that should include Genright's stuff as well.

If we didn't make corners, I'd buy Genright's and have before purely because they are closer. As in less than 100 miles from me, so I could go pick them up.


If it matters, Genright had theirs out first and then Rokmen followed. We're a bit behind and truthfully, wouldn't even make them if we didn't need them to match our rock rails and as a base for our tub rails.

^those pictures reafirm my statement. Both sets are quality and very similar. It really comes down to personal choice. Personally, I like Rokmens better, I like their rub rail better and I like the fact that the rail is Aluminum too.

I'm not exactly in the market for corners as I cannot see ever replacing my strykers, they are just to fricken awesome.

EDIT: genright may be quality, but honestly you can't charge that much more for the same product and expect a stingy *** like me to pay for em. Last I checked they were 200+ more than the competition

Nothing against Dave and their very fine products and you know I'm a huge fan of aluminum, but we just can't make rails like that work for where we play.

In JV, it's absolutely imperative that they wrap around the corners. There is far too many times where you slide off the line going up a fall and when you back down, you've slid over in front of a big *** boulder. Almost all of us at one point or another have folded the soft top belt rail in at the back corner on both sides.

If it didn't look so goofy, I'd just make the corners.

I will not comment on the quality of these 2 companies,but from what i read and not personal experience i believe they are both top!But when it comes to customer service i would have to go with Savvy.I have sent an email and pm's to Rockmen a couple of times with no answer whatsoever.When i sent a pm to Savvy or even an email they answered me the next day.Someone once said that Rockmen is a small company and it's better to call them than send emails but i'm on the other side of the ocean and i cannot do that and i also feel pretty insecure if someone doesn't bother to answer my questions via email.Quality aside, i would have gone with Savvy for that reason alone

chose whichever you'd like. Personally, I'd choose Rokmen since they're local to Colorado. Rokmen has excellent customer service, they're great guys and they are meticulous about quality. Savvy is the same way, so its really up to you!

Rokmen is a pretty small operation...don't email them or PM them, they're usually busy working, building or something. Just call them Shocking I know - using a phone for talking.

wow, guys. I really like the new rails from Savvy and yes they are both excellent quality. Just wondering is their a difference with the number of holes drilled into the body with certain products.
