    Well I guess consider the "reaction" as positive, lol. Seems like the most popular fender option people talk about and it doesn't even yet exist!

    Early bird might get the worm here, unless one is significantly less expensive than the other.

    I'm looking for QUALITY over anything else.

    While I like the American Adventure Labs' product, I would still give the nod to Rugged Ridge if the product they release is like the one at SEMA. It appears they keep a portion (or perhaps replace with a lower profile) of the plastic trim on the fender. The AAL product looks to delete it all together. So in my opinion, the Rugged Ridge looks more clean and refined.

    Yes, we'll see. It appears that both products are pre-production and incomplete. Either way, the idea and form is very attractive. We'll see who comes out on top quality/design wise, and can offer at a fair price.

    I really like the RR fenders but If AAL can produce a quality product that doesn’t look like a hack job I’m all for it. Although I wonder if this is only going to be for the front. It doesn’t look like they did anything with the rear.

    I'm hoping that the rugged ridge chop kit comes with inner fenders that give full coverage to the outer edges of the fenders while offering greater tire clearance than stock. Something that will be easy to power wash mud out of if you hit a mud hole. I have a feeling the AAL one is just going to be a bracket similar to the Artec chop kit.
