Crash Bar comparo for 09

I'm looking at Mastech ($199) vs Nomad ($228 and new to the market) Crash Bars for my 2009. Can anyone comment on ruggedness of one vs the other. Then we have the Hepco-Becker, "hand-made in Germany" for $296, as expected. Comments welcome before I place order.

Thnx, Stuart in Richmond, VA

Welcome to the forum! There's already more than a few threads related to crash-bars on the forum. Hit the search function and they should pop up. I havent figured out how to post embedded links on this site yet but I typed in "Crash bar comparison" into the search function right at the top of the page and a lot of threads from this forum popped up.
