    I'm not really sure why this thread is in our vendor section ???? But I know Randy, he's a great guy and makes a great product. There are pros and cons with both light bars. Ours offers more protection to the front of your truck, his is sleeker and more light weight. Both are light bars but they look very different from each other. It really comes down to what look you like and what would work best for you. Everyone has their own opinion and likes different looks and styles, that's why off road companies don't sell the same exact products. You just have to decide what YOU like and then if you buy American from a reputable company the quality will be there. Good Luck.
