best front unibody frame stiffners?

Anyone have any insight as to which brand is best?
Looks like there are quite a few choices.
I already have the HD off road center stiffners and really like them.

Re: best front unibody frame stiffners?

I'm a big fan of the front stiffeners that wrap under the frame right above the LCA mount. Two companies I found are:

Hooligan Offroad: https://www.hooliganoffroad.com/coll...ont-stiffeners
IronRock Offroad: https://www.ironrockoffroad.com/prod...t-section.html

Frame stiffeners are next on my to do list.

Appreciate the input this thread generates too.

Hooligans are 3/16"(0.1875") vs. IRO 10 Ga (0.1345")

Thanks for the input guys, the hooligan and IRO look like really good options.

Re: best front unibody frame stiffners?

The ones that wrap under look really nice, but I just installed a set of RuffStuff. They're 3 pieces per side, so I didn't have to remove the coil springs. Also they are 3/16", slightly thicker than the IRO. But I would guess the IRO ones are better.

Hooligan, best stiffener on the market.
