Why wouldn't you go OEM? The mopar boards come in chrome or blacked out, and will increase resale value.

ive got the raptor 5" ovals. great looking bars but im not fussy about how much of the mounts show. i feel they should be a little closer to the body. still like the bars though.

I have the 4" oval Raptor bars. I like them over the OEM bars as the ends are sealed and welded, versus being plastic inserts. The plastic inserts make the OEM bars look cheap compared to the Raptor series bars.

I have the OEM ones... But will soon be pony-ing out for the ADD ones. They will match my Road Armor front end much nicer... Slowly removing all the chrome from the truck...
