I decided on the Man-a fre. It installs closer to the vehicle. AND they are having a 5% off sale.

If you have Donahoe front coilovers, the All-pro front skid will not fit...I was told this when I called to ask them about it... ;)

The BudBuilt plates protect the alignment nuts, all others don't. You'll need a pipe wrench to turn the alignment bolts when you go to adjust your alignment after a few offroad trips in the rocks.

Budbuilt seems to be the way to go I also like that they cover the A-arm. I have heard that they hang lower than others, but fitment is great and rep is the best. I wounder if Bud would do a group buy?

No, he won't do a group buy and for good reasons. Call him and talk to him about his products if you have any questions. He makes some really nice stuff.

I did see the All Pro skidplate installed on an FJC with DR coilovers and the skid plate did not fit because the DR spacer blocks relocate the sway bar down further and interfere with the skid. I recently ordered the full set from Bud and he's a great guy to talk to.

I'm getting the Man-a Fre. They do have recessed bolts to protect the bolt heads and do fit closer. They will work with my All pro bumper
