which rocker side bar/slider do I buy??

Hello members,
I have a 05 rubicon with a 1'' body lift and I need some rocker protection- out here in AZ its hot, dry, and very rocky!!
I want some that bolt up-maybe, no drilling-are they made?
will they look goofy because of my body lift?
I would like the ones that have some tube construction to them-I do
like the look of the smittybuilt SRC rocker part #76641 -but it looks like I would need to drill 16 holes into the frame.....
any thoughs?

looking forward to some insight from ya-
Thx

Check out ACE engineering and fab, they have recently released a TJ rock slider/step. They are bolt up to the body bolts.
Good price, great product, great customer service, and a lifetime no questions asked warranty!!

Well, I have the Smittybilt XRC rails and the went on great and look good. Probably wouldn't buy a lot of the other SB stuff but for rockker rails with a tube they are fine.

my favorite thing about my smittys is they cover the crease damage in the bottom on my rocker panels from before the guards were installed. normally I'm not a smitty fan but these are solid and well built, and a great price.
