Bells of Steel or Gorila Fitness for gym setup

BOS has a fantastic deal on a home gym setup that includes rig, weights, belt squat and other accessories for under 2 g's. Gorila is quite a bit more expensive. Any opinions on which avenue to take? Has anyone had any issues with BOS aside from some shipping concerns? Thanks
