Best bumperettes?

Looking for a set of bumperettes to protect my 110s rear quarter panels and not sure which brand provides that? I've looked at a lot of pictures but its hard to tell how thick or rugged something is. Also needs to allow a mantec swing away to mount. I can't see how a loaded 110 coming down hard on rock wouldn't just bend a plate mounted to the rear crossmember and not tied into the Frame on the side. Any first hand experience?

I did also look at many option, but did not found the one i was looking for, having a corner bumper and a NAS tow hitch,in the same time, so i did make the one i want, including a camera back up in the bumper,
i did have it sand blast and Galvanised localy, i also recycle the side step of my wife truck, she have it replace at the dealer for new one. so i put it with the run of sand blast and galvanised

The Side step are from a Toyota FJ cruiser 2007, i just did the bracket to hold it on the frame, and they blend very well with the rest of the tube work.

I'm very happy with my Terrafirma Bumperettes. Very solid and heavy. http://www.devon4x4.com/index.php?pa...mart&Itemid=14

Claude those look great, nice work. I emailed a few companies who make these to see if they make any avoiding the bolt holes used by the mantec and only corsetti engineering responded with a yes for $1000 plus shipping to USA...whoa!

I like SafariGard's, which of course are no longer available (pic of Graham Jackson's 110 from his website here: http://www.africaoverland.org/defender_iteration1.htm).

Sure wish someone would copy the design. That said, JSQ's look pretty good.

Would never call them protective but always loved the MOD units
