Hi guys, im new to this, just bought a 96 grand cherokee, soccer mum additon:P, Im looking at getting a bar for it and dont know whether i get an arb deluxe steel bar $1438, $220 extra for paint, or an alloy one from j and j bullbars at slacks creek for $1795 and theres tons of dif designs to choose from.
the reason for steel, alloy is pretty soft and in the event of an accident or something solid colliding with the bar, the bar will buckle and warp and basically just bend.
our old XJ had a polished alloy bar, and i wont say who was driving, but a family member had run the front right corner into a concrete barrier and bent the bar round onto the tyre. was easily pulled back out agen with the winch off the tow truck.
steel, you'd need to like run a Mack truck into it for it to bend or break.
