Smittybilt Rock Sliders vs Ace Rock Sliders

Which one would you recommend?

They seem to be the same price but Ace is going to charge me $200 in shipping to Hawaii while Smittybilt is free shipping.

Just curious if the Smittybilt is less durable, etc..

I can't speak for Ace but i have Smitty's and haven't had any issues with them. Mine installed easily but i can't say the say for my buddy's pair. It took several hours, blood, and beer to get his up.

I've had mine up against several trees with no cosmetic damage. If i had the choice to buy them again.. I would. Goodluck!

I have the Smitty side armor and love it. Install was a piece of cake. Grabbed mine on Amazon for$299 and free second day shipping.

I love my smitty rockers. Had to do a little widening of 1 of the holes and also had to get creative with the main body mount bolt/washer on all 4 points since the rocker guards wouldn't seat right around the washer. I use them as a step also
