As far as the Land Rover community is concerned, anything in a blue box is universally known as ShitPart.
Their quality varies wildly, it seems as if they simply fill boxes with job lots sourced wherever.

I'd spend the few extra pennies and get a known brand.

I brought some rockers from one of the well known land rover online shops.
Received some white boxed parts which looked awful and measured worse than very worn OE rockers.
I returned these and was sent some Brit-part boxed rockers and to be fair they looked very good quality and measured bang on to the OE.
Can't comment on their followers.
But what ever brand you get just make sure you measure it and make sure the fit is good, i'm sure most of the aftermarket companies will get them from the same suppliers.

Indeed. However I think that is unfair as I know of a lot of cases where the issue has not been the part, but the individual fitting it!

Fair point, Chris.
I am quite happy to agree to that.
Cheers,
