Trying to decide between the Rock Hard or ARTEC complete Aluminum belly pan. At a glance it seem like I'd be satisfied with either for rock crawling.

But wondering if anyone can share any latest experience from running either of these.

One of the things I'd like to find out is which has the better bolts/hardware design for bolts surviving rocks?

I've been baking on my Artec skids for almost 3 years now without a single issue. The weight and increased ground clearance are what sold me. These belly-draggers need all the help they can get.

I have the Artec but I need to try a little harder to hit it than I have been

Fair enough. I ended up installing the ARTEC. But my exhaust brackets do not fit. ARTEC said they're aware that it won't fit on some JLs...apparently the exhaust piping varies from factory.

Not sure on what I want to do yet, but I might end up replacing that section of pipe
