Southdown vs Rovers North Steering Skid

Which is better investment? Looking to purchase one or the other. Or is there a better cheaper option.

Doesn't Rovers North sell Southdown? BTW the Southdown on my 90 acts like a plow in mud, great in rocks, it protects very well, but it slows you down in mud. Oh and you did see this right?

No, didn't see that post from Chris. Interesting.

Saw the Southdown skid in the Atlantic British catalog. From your experience, doesn't sound like the Southdown is what I want. I like mud too much.

Thanks Mike.

Yeah if you are hitting a lot of rocks (like I do) then it works well. But If you see mostly mud and a few to no rock then I think it would hurt more then help. I was pretty sure that you were a mostly mud type.

Yeah man, the city re-scheduled a street cleaning in my honor from all the mud off my truck as a result of MAR.

I'll go with the Rovers North vehicle protection plate then.
