I like poison spider custom corner guards but I seen these guards on three jeeps and all of them has rock scares on the tubes so they must work

You gonna hang your towels on those when you are campin? Just messin boss. I see their point and they do seem to work the same way as tubes do on say my rocker guards. Will keep your tub that much further away from rocks. Of course on the flip side it's also something else for rocks to get hung up on.

I think it really just boils down to personal preference.

Those look VERY simliar to my Toys By Troy ones. However, mine are a 2 piece design (corner plus side slider) which made fitment and differences in each Jeep a bit easier to deal with. My slider also wraps around to the back side, so if I were to come backwards onto a rock, they'd get a BIT more protection.







Personally, I like having the two piece design, but this particular TbT version made me have to go with a tire carrier on the bumper (Jeeperman) instead of the ORFab carrier I had been considering. These Rokmen's wouldn't create that limitation since the rails don't wrap.

These sliders have proved useful in the offcamber stuff we have around here, especially when running a gully. Those sliders hit the 'wall' and actually keep my top from rubbing as much, saving it as well as the tub.

When I flopped it back in August, my tub had ZERO damage because of these.



Another thing to consider, the Toys By Troy versions come powdercoated. The Rokmen's are not. The PC on my sliders was VERY good, despite complaints about powdercoating on the TbT bumpers.

good looking jeep erikpl
I never thought of them helping when you lay it on your side
as for the powder coating I'll either take them into work and powder coat them white or paint them white to match my jeep

but I don't know about having the tube thingy

That was my next thought. That's why we refer to them out here as "Crapper" bars.
