Are These Strong

i'm considering these, i've heard they're strong. i wouldn't think anything you bolt to the body is good. any experience here, used in pretty good wheeling??

appreciate the feed back

the other WF members told me not to buy such rocker gurds.
others that are bolted to the body mount bolts and that go to the frame untder the body are much stronger.
take a look at the poison spider customs or the TNT customs rocker guards.

i think your confused nicolas...

i've heard wonderful reviews about these rocker guards. they should be as good as any other. they bolt to the body and also have bolts that go up through the floor. they also have very good coverage underneath.

these are mounted like the PSC rocker guards except you drill up through the bottom instead of using the body mounts. these mount like the shrockworks rocker guards. those drill up through the bottom also.

this is a link to reviews for the AtoZ guards

http://www.jeepreviews.com/jeep-part...rocker-guards/

if you look at shrockworks (mount the same way) you'll see that they also get great reviews

These rocker guards would be fine. Like BigJeep said, most of the high-end guards bolt up this way.

i like those. i got a set of warn sliders that bolt to the body but without the tube step. after installation it looked like it could take some serious abuse. good choice.

I'd trust the hell out of them. I run something similar and they've seen more rocks than most have seen shoes on them.

thanks guys, my first reaction is "bolt to the body??" but like mrbigjeep said, they've gotten great reviews. i saw a demo where they used a hi lift jack to jack the whole side up by them. and blkjp has used similar on the rocks sounds like they're ok. i know i've seen someone rip body mounts out on rocks, with the ones that bolt to body mounts. i wouldn't trust those on much real wheeling.

when i asked about strong rocker guards everybody told me that the PSC guards (ore others taht are similiar) that are bolted to the body mounts and that go to the frame under the TJ are much better than the others that are only bolted to the body.



and yes, i am confused....that two threads with the nearly the same question end with two completely different answer,
the WF users told me that the guards like "orange05TJ" has are not very durable on rocks and that i should buy something different.
and in another thread you say that theses guards are ok...

Nico, you need to research this stuff on your own too. Every body thinks what they have is the best of course.

a rocker guard that uses bolts to go up through the bottom isn't worse than rocker guards using the body mounts.

i didn't remember anybody saying that the rocker guards that bolt up through the bottom are bad. orange's rocker guards will be just fine...like said, both AtoZ and shrockworks use this method of mounting and you saw the reviews...never hear a bad thing about either.

here is a link to reviews of the ones i have...they bolt to the body and use bolts through the floor too

thanks, great info, i think i'll go with something like this. like i said my first thought was those aren't a good idea, then i looked into it, and people say they've bounced them off rocks, and couldn't tell. its a great combo, i got no rust on my rockers, but yj rockers are ugly w/ pinch welds and all, so i want to cover rockers, and puts nice rock guards on at same time. i like
