FWIW, I haven't seen the BDCW in person, but I would almost guarantee Charlie's is stronger. There are trade offs with everything, but the little extra weight down low has little effect on anything. I ventilated it for some airflow, as others have done here.

I had a rock bang the stock skid plate pretty good yesterday. It didn't crack, but I figure it's only a matter of time with my luck!
I was going to get the side stand bracket too - any comparisons on those?
