Firestone Airbags in rear, with Firestone compressor.
    What are the real differences between the All-Pro, ARB, and Shrockworks, etc. plate winch bumpers.

    They all seem close to the same price. Is there an advantage of one to another (weight, skids, clearance)?

    I'm slowly saving up for one and need some direction on which way to go.

    Thanks for the input!

    wat?
    AP=less weight but less sturdy...also has a good amount of clearance
    ARB and shrockworks=beefy as shit and weigh a metric shit ton

    it's all in what u need it for. all should accommodate the regular aftermarket skids
