Galvanized vs aluminum skins

About to order new door skins for my 110 from sp4x4. Aluminum and galv are the same price. Which ones should I get? Thanks

Galv is better as it won't corrode when it touches the door frame.

Yes, go galvy for sure. As we all have seen, aluminum touching steel = no bueno....

steel is also much easier to paint and to raapir in the future as well
