    My body mounted ones are for sale, they work great for regular off road use, but the more I used them the more they seemed to flex and made me quite nervous.

    I've seen your pinch seam...


    So I added a set for the JKU into my cart at White Knuckle -- Just to see the real, shipped price...

    Did you buy them just to see how long they would take to get to your house. Haha

    I didn't buy them -- I saw the part that said they would need a few weeks for production so they won't be here in time for VOR anyway

    I do have a question about mounting -- are the mounts flat plates, where you drilled holes thru the frame to mount them up? Did they use existing holes?

    in your last picture is that a mount wrapped around the bottom of the frame rail? How many times is it tied back to the frame?

    They are worth the wait. Can't rush quality, and these are definitely high quality. They are made in the USA and shipped when done. They communicated back and forth with me on measurements and talked me through different ideas and questions I had. Completely awesome to deal with. The front and rear are L shape brackets, 2 bolts in the side of the frame and 1 in the bottom in the front and 2 in the bottom, the middle bracket is just a plate so 2 bolts into the side of the frame. The front bottom uses an existing hole with a threaded bolt supplied to go right in, the rest need to be drilled.

    The difference between the HREW (hot rolled electric welded) and DOM (drawn over mandrel) is strength.
    The HREW is basically mild steel with a yield strength of around 40ksi.
    The DOM is the same material put through a secondary process where the tube is cold drawn over a mandrel which produces a more consistent and stronger tube. This process creates a tube that has a yield strength of around 70ksi.
    The DOM is simply stronger, can take more punishment and is best suited for use against rocks. It is also capable of stopping depleted uranium rounds up to a muzzle velocity of 1,670 meters per second*.
