TD5 90 Rear 1/4 panel guards, Best manufacturer/seller?

Hey there,

Took my 90 offroading today for the first time and was convinced of my previous thoughts based on my experience with my crawler Disco - the NAS rear Defender bumper is LOW.

Sold it, and now looking for the 1/4 panel quards the likes of Scorpion Racing and Safari guard...

Thought I'd post here to see what you guys have experienced with and any weaknesses in any designs/manufacturers. I plan to ship into Lebanon, therefore I might as well go for the BEST product / cost world wide.

Thanks.

Nadim

I had a set from Rover Accessories, broke it first day out. The problem was the rear step stuck out too far. I had just caught the last 1/4" coming off a rock and it bent it up. Charles at RA said he would make me a custom set to replace to broken ones. The step is nice to have, but seems like a liability. I would do without it for better clearance and departure angles.

Yeah was thinking about that - something locally done, hell, its cheaper to get a welder here in Dubai and work it than to ship!

I was thinking of doing something JUST long enough to protect the lights...
