HREW or DOM?

I'm about to order some sliders from 4x innovations but on the fence about which metal to get, HREW or DOM? I don't do much rock crawling as I'm only a prerunner but when I do encounter rocks, I'd like my sliders to be able to
hold up. Has anybody had any issues with HREW sliders? The DOM is only an extra $50, what do u guys think?

Unless you're dropping the whole weight of your truck onto the rocks, I'd think you'll be fine with HREW. Especially since you're 2wd, you won't be doing anything too crazy.

IIRC it's a bit heavier too...I was told by several folks that unless you are building a total offroad rock crawler rig- you'll be ok with HREW.

I've put one side of my trucks weight (both tires off the ground- Had to e-brake locker myself off it) on my HREW sliders from Revenge and didn't see any flex or issues.

I just ordered my set from Jason at Demello and asked him what's the difference; don't quote me on this but if I remember correctly he said DOM is Chinese made or cheaper material and he only uses HREW. Again don't quote me
