    yeppers, if you havent seen one in person, you dont know the quailty.. BTW, they will never ship, or build one off the rig, thats why its called "custom built"
    I know of 3 people personally, that have driven to them from out of state, one from kansas city, one from texas, and one from ok. if you want to best, you will make it happen.

    I'm sure the quality of their product is top notch however...

    I see a very large problem with their front bumpers.
    Notice the very large opening between the bumper and the stock skid plate. Hate to catch a stick, branch, small furry woodland creature in there and lose the radiator.

    I'll stay with ARB for the time being.

    again, these are custom built, if the vehicle owner doesnt want a radiator cover/skid plate, they will not make you one. I know for a fact, that they will ask everyone if they want it, what style, steel or aluminum, you want air holes, holes or slots, etc. etc.
    You cant compair an off the shelf ARM or TJM to a custom built bumper, thats like compairing apples to pears.. Ive personly seen TJM crumble into the fender of a buddies rigs, then I took the same line, and also came down on the Armorology, just took the paint off, he has a $2000 repair bill.
    BTW, the black 99 is mine, after 5 years of wheeling EVERY weekend, I NEVER had an issue with the radiator being exposed like that. ever.
    Im done trying to explain what a "custome" build is,, if you dont like, keep your arb, ive seen them fail (in person) Ill keep what I got.

    Like I said they look like a high quality product, if you could get a skid to cover that area then great because personally I would.

    Perhaps you mistook my tone.

    I say again, they look like a high quality product and if, if I were to get one I would opt for some sort of protection for the radiator. Personal preference.

    I did not know at my original post that they offered protection in that area and I made my post off of what I saw on the site. If you are trying to drum up business for them you're failing miserably. Adding on to your comment, I've seen a number of ARB's personally stand up to some rough abuse and survive a deer at 70mph with zero damage to rig or bumper and the only fatalities that night were the license plate and the deer.

    I have never heard anything about Armorology aside from how great their stuff is. If I had the money or lived in the area I'd have that rear wrap around already...
