View Full Version : 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.

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/collections/xj/products/xj-front-stiffeners
IronRock Offroad: https://www.ironrockoffroad.com/product/xj-unibody-frame-stiffeners-front-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.

Similar design as ruffstuff but they have bumper tie in's.

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.
