Installed these today to go along with my Rubi Rails. Awesome tough product. ACE even called me to notify that they had been shipped a few days ago! Would have been a breeze of an install if it wasn't so damn HOT in Maryland.

Hey guys... Thanks for all the great feedback on our sliders. Just a quick note that we have some inventory again and are back to shipping same day or next day. Hopefully we can keep this in stock a little longer.


Thanks Adam

Just got mine today and am trying to install and I can not get the bolts out of my Rubicon. I did get one out but the rest only loosen a little and just seem to spin after that any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Had the same thing happen on mine, put some pressure on the washer with a small crow bar and it popped out.

Mine did the same thing. You need to pry on them with a screwdriver or pry bar while you turn the bolts with a socket wrench. It takes some time but they do come out.

Same here, use a vice grip to grab the washer after you loosen the bolt as much as you can and wack the vice grips with a hammer. The bolts will come out. Also it may take a little aligning to get them back in but nothing bad. Remember to torque to 80#. Ace is great and Jason at Krawl is too.

Thanks Ed!

Yes, there is a little washer there that the factory uses to install these bolts. For some reason they get hung up on some and not others. We have seen this time and time again we 1 or 2 need it but not all of them. Some downward pressure and they will come out. Then, when going back in, a small tap with a hammer and your ready to go!

If anyone else is running ACE Sliders, feel free to post them up!

Or, if your not, let us know and we can help you get setup with a set!

Any tips on touching them up? I finally broke them in last weekend at the California Slickrock trail and the passenger side has a nice scrape down to the metal in places up nearly the entire side of it. Both have some pretty good gouges underneath. I thought I'd heard plastidip but I'd think some sort of rustoleum would be better to prevent rust since they're steel. I tried looking in the paint aisle at Home Depot and nearly had a breakdown trying to figure out which flavor and finish of black rustoleum would be the best fit though.

So for my 2013 4 door JKU is it recommended to do rubi rails and the ace rock sliders. It seems everyone does that for a nice finished look?

Right now nothing is on the beast in terms of side bars.

I like how it looks with the Rubi and Ace rails together, but I chose to go with the Ace sliders by themself and actually like it enough to forego the Rubi rails altogether. As always it will come down to personal preference.

Rustoleum Truck Bed Coating (Textured Non-Skid Finish) is a virtual perfect match. I've used it several times on a couple of large areas where I had scraped down to the steel and I can't tell where it's been touched up.

Sounds good. Would I need to probably go to an auto parts store to find that flavor? I don't remember seeing any automotive specific stuff like that in the spray paint aisle at Home Depot. Also, do you guys pull the rails off to touch them up or just very carefully paint them while still on the Jeep? I had the benefit of the packing styrofoam to help me leverage them up and install solo originally, not anymore though.

I found it at Home Depot with the other Rustoleum spray cans. My scrapes have all been on the bottom or bottom sides of the rails and I just used a paint shield to do the touch-ups with the rails still attached. For more extensive painting, I'd probably remove them. By the way, jack stands are a great way of holding them up while reattaching. Mine have been off and on a couple of times.

If you don't have the Rubi Sliders now, I say just add the ACE Sliders and see what you think. Sometimes, finding the Rubi sliders can be a pain! A lot of guys (especially with Black JK's) don't seem to mind running them without the Rubi Sliders.

Yes Home Depot or Lowes usually has it. If your scrapes are on the bottom, I usually get a piece of cardboard and lay it on the top and just spray up, into the cardboard.

I agree with Jason. I had my Ace rails on a couple of months before I decided to add the Rubi sliders and then it took another 2-3 months to find some takeoffs on CL in my area. You may find running without the Rubi sliders isn't so bad. While you decide, you can still get the benefit of the Ace rails whether as a step or protection against banging on rocks, logs, etc.

The only disadvantage is having to loosen the Ace rails to install the Rubi sliders later, but you don't even have to completely remove them, only loosen the bolts enough so that there is a gap to slide the Rubi sliders in.

Get a bigger lift on your Jeep, that should not be allowed.!
