Setina or Go Rhino?

Is there a real difference between the two? Don't really plan on pushing anything=big anyway. Looks like CampSafety has the best deal so far on the Setina.

I've always preferred Setina because they are cheaper and their customer service is top notch, not really a noticeable difference between the two brands! But the biggest reason i chose them is because they are the only ones that still make things for the old 90's caprices!

Setina +1000!!!

Go rhino's customer service sucks, and they pack the bumpers really cheapy to the point that nearly every one I've order has opened up on transit or something is missing or scratched up.

They have good products, but they are lacking in the CS Dept for sure. And Miguel is a moron. He personally has messed up a few too many orders for me.

Too bad. So sad. It's not a personal attack, just my opinion.

I too have used Setina for 20+ years and Go Rhino, Setina tests all their products if it shall be used for public safety and pushing on vehicles, I've never had a problem with Setina's products. Go Rhino on the other hand their powder coating is much lighter than the Setina, but you can choose a heavier coating for a fee. Setina is the way to go.

I've taken off alot of Go-rhino's in the last 10 years, and they are heavily rusted after 5 years of service.

And most times you have to cut the bolt heads off with a torch.

On the other hand, Setina is not as bad. But lately the powered coating is on the thin side.

I have a PB400 on my F-150 and had to repaint the mounts after a year on. I used etching primer and oil base paint, and after 2 years I started seeing rust around the bolts. Probably due to the serrated nuts cutting into the mounts. But for ease of mounting and customer service, Setina is the way to go.
