brawler rockers vs stock rubi rails

http://shop.poisonspyder.com/Jeep-Ro...rmor-s/145.htm

Worth it? I already have Rubicon rails... they look cooler, but I'm told that's all they really offer over the rubicon rails. Are those 45-degree?

Also, how do you guys feel about crusher corner armor?

Thanks.. doesn't really answer my question though

I agree with you -- everything I've seen is great and I doubt I would be disappointed. I just don't want to spend the money if it's not going to net any real solid benefit of sorts.

The brawler rockers are going to offer you more side impact protection vs the rubi rails which are more for a upwards vertical impact. The Brawlers will give you more space between the side of your jeep and a rock if you get into a wedge. I run them on my Jeep and they have saved me from certain damage many times. I personally seen them in action at King Of the Hammers on the JKOH and they can take one hell of a beating! Larry even used them as a winching piviot point on a rock!

it is 45 degrees, anything will be better than the stock rubi-rails. the rock brawler rails are stronger and offer more clearance than the stock rubi-rails. you really can't go wrong with the. its win win

the crusher corners add a lot of protection as well. the JK sheet metal is thin to save weight. the corners offer a lot of protection.

video of Larry talking about their latest rockers


my JK will need the protection the rock brawler rails and crusher corners offer. i plan on wheeling it hard this summer.

I would get the corner guards first before replacing the ruby rails. Im praying that Poison spider is going to release some for the 2 door in the next month or two.....
One rock = ~$1000 fix if done by a pro.....

These JKs are wider and have lights that stick too far out, places where YJ could sneak in might not be possible for the JK. The same rock I got hit by also smacked 4 other JKs in the same spot. One club guy who does competitions has fixed the area 3 times.....and hes also waiting for the Poison spider corners for the 2 door. If you have a 4 door I would strongly recommend the corner guards and be glad you have them.

I have the two door... so I guess I have no option (besides River raider? will they work with the bushwacker flat's? (The full lengths).

Where did that get hit? What trail?

So you're saying the rock rails aren't necessarily needed beyond the stocks? I can't believe a situation where those poison spyders would protect me a lot more than rubicon ones to the point where certain damage would result w/ the stockers.

There are other options for the 2 door but to me they either dont cover enough or dont match the body contours (cheaply made) so I plan on waiting for spiders to come out.....unless something better shows up first.

Not saying the poison spider rails are not needed, but you already have some decent ones and dont have anything for the corners......I would just get the corners first, is all Im saying.

Trail is up by Hungry Valley, CA its a OHV playground with trails and rock piles everywhere. It was a $2500 repair trip, not including getting the body repaired. Playing in rocks is NOT cheap.

Like WSOffroad said, the Rubi rock rails don't protect the side of your JK at all!

Watch this video:

See how the obstacle pulls the vehicle left, into the rock, until the side of the vehicle is rubbing against that rock?

That's what Rubi rock rails won't protect you from.

The brawlers (and others like them) stick out from the side, so they'd end up rubbing against that rock, not the side of your JK.

My Brawlers are hanging in my tool room / paint room right now. Also got the River Raider Off Road skid plate kit.
I took off about 60 pound and am adding about 300 pounds
When I lose 120 of fat I'll get some of the back.
