Pure Jeep Sliders

Hello!
Looking for anyone who has used Pure Jeep Rocker Guards and some photos:
PUREJEEP: PJ3000: JEEP JK 2-DOOR ROCKER SKIDS, rocker guards
I need a step and a slider- height challenged. Hoping to find out how the Pure Jeep hold up on the trail most importantly. Also hoping to get better pics than Pure Jeep has on their website. I've dug up pics on the actual under-armor/slider part but not many.
Thanks!
(Sorry if someone has posted on this; "Pure Jeep" brings up around 30 pages on the search engine).

I don’t have them nor have I seen them in person but to me they look like armor cladding with a step on them. It doesn’t look like there is any kind of rock rail to protect from underneath.

You can achieve the same look and in my opinion more protection with an OEM take off Rubicon rail and the DIY weld on Rico step from Poison Spyder Customs. Poly/Synergy makes a weld on step too for a Rubi rail.

They do have a rock rail- it wraps around more than most. You just can't see it in the pics on their website. Part of why I asked for more pics.
I had planned on doing what you suggested but try finding Rubi rails for a 2 door. In two months of looking I've only found them for 4 doors. By the time I buy the rail, plus the step, plus the side armor, pay for the weld job and re-powder coat the whole she-bang- its almost as much as the Pure Jeep. And I only have to deal with one vendor/one item.
Thanks for the suggestion- still may do that but trying to dig up more info. on the Pure Jeep before I make a decision. I also like the Poison Spyders but they don't come painted and the side armor is an additional cost.

I stand corrected then. Pure Jeep makes good products, actually part of Hanson, so there’s a name to stand by. The install of these might be difficult though since it probably involves nutsert-ing the tub. You are right though, by the time you pay for weld and recoat (rustoleum bedliner) on a Rico step, you may be in to it more than you wanted to be.

Oh and FYI, you can buy 4 door rock rails and chop them down. That is what I did. They utilize the same exact 1st 2 mounting points with the 4 door having a 3rd. Measure, chop, and you will find it lines up just like an OEM 2 door Rubi rail.

I was wondering if anyone had tried that (chopping down a 4 door rail). Thanks. Good to know.

You can always buy these. Nearly identical to the OEM rails. A buddy has them and they fit fine and look just like my Rubi's. One positive is that the end caps are welded steel as opposed to clipped in plastic like the stockers. Be careful with Smitty though, sometimes their shit don't fit.

It looks like those Pure Jeep sliders attach to the tub only. Am i seeing that right in the one pic? Buddy of mine just had the ACE rails installed under his 2dr stock Rubi sliders. Nice! Those are what will be going on my 4dr.

I'm interested in how those mount also. I would assume they have to mount with more then the 4 nutserts and the 1 lower bolt that you see in the pics.

Correct. There are 2 body mounts, 4 compression-type tubes/crush tubes (not nutserts) for the side armor plus 3 larger ones that mount under/to the door sill. They mount through all three layers of the body. I break into a sweat just looking at the install pics.
I've looked into the ACE-thanks. It concerns me that they only have 2 bolt/mounting points. I know many people are okay with this so probably just me- but they also don't have a step. Gotta wave the chick flag here- need something I can step on that isn't a tube. I am rather accident prone.

Here are a few with and without flat fenders. Very stout, rugged, heavy duty etc.

I just read through the directions also. I really like that they are bolted through the tub instead of nutserts since my tub is destroyed the nutserts don't really work. The tube is also nice and high so it doesn't get caught on rocks like a lot of the other sliders out there. I think I may have finally found a set or rockers that I like.

Thanks for the pics! Look good! By stout- does that mean you've mashed them against stationary objects? For instance, a small boulder? I do intend to use them for rock crawling so looking for feedback in that regards.

When you pick them up you will realize you dont need to mash them on a rock to understand the craftsmanship. I have rubbed stuff but not dropped onto a rock directly. They WILL hold up. I have no doubt. Oh yeah not too many rock in NJ to crawl on...lol
