i mainly want it because it tends to slide easier over crap

exos decrease body damage but they dont cure it. body damage happens, and I am fine with that.

If youre that worried about the damage, you shouldnt be wheeling in a way that might cause it

I know PLENTY of guys who wheel hard and still have great looking bodies. you can do hard lines, have fun and not try a crinkled ball of metal, trust me...

Honestly, I think a badly done exo is way unglier than a body damaged vehicle and the lines on a ranger arent easy...

Do I EVEN have to say anything


But I'm with Gil on this even though I like the way cages look. I think you truck would look great with one though. But if you take your time you can keep it lookin good.

Hey matt, I think I have decided to sell my Krawlers, I found some other stuff that will be more advantageous, IMO. sorry dude! but my next set will be some blue lables so I can run them all the time. It wont be such a pain in the ***...
