They have the best deal on AL corners
I wouldn't buy from anyone with an awful website like that, looks home made. On the page for the corners, the pic doesn't even show the corners! They're showing the front bumper.

I'd pass if they can't even figure out how to get pics up on the website.

Good for you. They are fabricators, not webmasters .. They do great work and will customize it for you with flares

Lol...Stout Fab is an extremely popular vendor for body armor on one of the other big off-road forums. Savvy's website isn't much better, and I don't see anyone complaining about theirs.

Savvy's site is much better. At least they can figure out how to get a picture of the listed product on the page. That Stout Fab page is a joke. No picture of the actual product. It's not that hard to put a picture up. Pretty lame.

So what? I'm supposed to take your word for it and buy something I've never seen? Not going to happen.

Actually someone whining about a website is lame.

And that picture does have a TJ with them installed .

Way to bash a small shop that does great work.

And SAVVY's site is not that great since there are a bunch of stock photos that are not the actual item. That did not stop me from buying some of their great items.



Or you could do an image search and see actual pictures of customers installs.

You guys can buy what you want, I'm not buying anything from them because two fanboys say I should.

Ya their site isn't great, but talk with the owner and he'll build you any corner protection you want. He offered to send cad drawings of the desired corners and they'll do what they can to help you get what you want. They seem like a good company, but they're small, so it won't be as nice as the larger companies that can hire a web designer to build their site. Kylecraig has a custom set of their corners on his tj. They seem to do nice work

Nobody cares what you buy.

Obviously some kid who hasn't been around long enough to see how bad all web pages used to look 15 years ago.

I work in the IT field and have been doing so for almost 20 years. I know how bad websites used to look and partly why I judge a business partly on how their website looks.

Would have never guessed

Hate to break it to you but a website has nothing to do with product quality.

I have a set of Mopar corners for $250 delivered to AZ. Took these off when I installed my rockmen corners. Also have the lj stock rubicon rock sliders for 125 shipped. Let me know if interested at [email protected]


No hardware on the sliders and some of the bolts for the corners.

Thanks for the offer, but I already purchased the poison spyder aluminun full corners and I'm running their rocker knockers currently

Haha, I do a lot of online work for/with small businesses & I kind of understand your point, but you have to know who you're dealing with, too. Small fab places are likely not going to have a lot of web experience.

...stout fabrication (moab fab) has a good reputation, btw.
