Anybody have these rock sliders?

Looking for feedback on these sliders from Hansen.
Hanson Offroad: JKRP4-P: JK 4-DOOR ROCKSLIDERS, JK Rocker Guards
If you search this forum, it seems the choices are Ace, Ace, and some people who like Ace. I was looking for something a little different. Anyone install these?

Those Hanson's really do look good, but have you looked at Ace? Sorry had to do that. If you do what my wife did, drag your Ace's over some boulders, broad side a few trees, you can end up with some custom sliders similar to ours. After a few months of that no two Ace sliders have the same finger prints. Instant customization.

I found install instructions on a third-party website. Not much in terms of picture or description. I'm trying to figure out if it completely covers the pinch seam. Also, it looks like it bolts on to the same spot as the Ace rails. Does that count as a body mount or a frame mount? And which is better?

thanks for the input

If nobody has any experience with these, I'm a little hesitant to be the guinea pig. Maybe I'll have to break down and go with . . . . . . . .

The lower picture looks real close to George West, Three Rivers area. big live oaks. The hill shot is much further North no clue but it looks soft and steep from the shot. I swear it looks like a place at Superlift in Arkansas.

Ace.
What is the wall thickness of the steel and what type. We have Aces but I wouldn't call them bullet proof. I think the Rubi rails that are behind them on ours is all that saved them from folding while my wife slide over a big boulder. I'm personally going to go with weld on type when I get mine in the fall.

According to the website:
"Constructed of 3/16” cold rolled steel. Formed to protect the sides of the vehicle while providing a strong design for bottom impact. The smooth bottom causes no loss in ground clearance and allows for easy sliding over obstacles. The frenched-in steps provide good footing in all weather conditions. This rugged handcrafted construction is finished in a black semi-gloss powder coat."
