Here's a list someone put together....
I looked at all of them and threw out any that weren't made in the USA. Then I threw out anything that did not cover the catalytic converter. That brought the list to a manageable size.
Many good ones remained..I went with Black Dog. Extremely rugged, covers the cat..US made and two bolts and it's off.
I've ridden it down in Baja a number of times...hit a bit rock down near Valley de Trinidad..didn't dent it but it ground down aluminum and made an awful sound. Couldn't be happer with Black Dog...so much so I purchased their rear rack as well.
