    I was shopping for a recovery strap and a couple of d-ring shackles. The smittybilt stuff is way cheaper than all the other brands. Are they junk or do they just not charge for the name (ARB)?

    I have had some Smittybilt accessories before, quality was good. I had one brush guard that had the center bars a tiny bit too long, but the rest of it was good so I left it alone.
