White Knuckle Offroad Rock Sliders Thread



DOM tubing, priced right, and connects to frame … White Knuckle Offroad rock sliders are a win.

As most of us need a step for the convenience factor…and especially for the family, these are just perfect. I can finally leave my step ladder at home the next time i wash the jeep.

Hand made to order meaning it can be custom tailored to fit your needs. Want a rock slider to fit perfectly under your rubicon rails? just ask John from White Knuckle Offroad. He can make you a set. His powder coater does great work too and i got mine satin black to match my upcoming bumpers in the near future.

Less than a month wait for these beautifully crafted rock sliders. They are not mass produced…however i'd rather wait a month than 3 months like the competitors.

John from White Knuckle offroad is amazing. He's about 1.5 hours from my location so i decided to pick it up to save me a few pennies. He answered all my questions via email, and when meeting him in person…He's one of the nicest guys in the world. Making meticulously built rock sliders for a variety of popular vehicles on the market from scratch is his passion and it shows in the craftsmanship of his work.

I know several people on wf that purchased from White Knuckle Offroad and they all have nothing bad to say. I have a 100% feeling that these will last longer than my jeep. Money definitely well spent.

here are the actual specs:
White Knuckle JK Unlimited Rock Sliders
Includes the following features:

- Overall length is 74"
- 3/16th" thick x 2'" x 3" rectangular tube main rub rail
- 3/16th" thick x 1-1/2" square tube legs
- .120" thick x 1-3/4" outer rub rail
- 1/4" thick mounting plates
- 1/4" thick gussets for added strength
- Serves as a secure point to lift one side of vehicle using a high-lift jack
- Fully welded and very tough
- Mounts to frame
- Each weighs 58 lbs.
- Bare metal or powder coat finish
- Includes 3/8" self threading bolts and installation instructions
- Designed for short arm suspension
- Kit available for alternate mounting
- Tread top plate optional
- Custom work available

Ive been happy with mine as well so far and can also second everything nice said about John. Ive never had the pleasure of meeting him but spoke to him on the phone a couple of times and always thought he was a very nice guy. Took about a month to get mine as well. The install wasnt really mentioned in the previous review but with the help of a drill and an impact these could probably be installed in an hour. The only thing that needs to be added to them is some grip tape. I havent used mine too much as they were intended, just some small rocks and to pivot around a tree, but so far no concerns about their strength at all.

More pics from today. Easier access to the rear! My passengers will be quite happy.

@spieg...I had a shop install it since I don't have power tools. And it did take about an hour. I'm very happy with them. The welds are phenomenal.

Also, John from White knuckle told me that one of his customers had a rollover in a ravine. The only thing that survived are the rock sliders with 1 dimple.

He also had another customer that previously purchased shrockworks. When he made the switch, he told John that white knuckle is way more stout!

I bought a set for my Tacoma (have since traded it), and the quality is top notch. They were built for me in a matter of days and had shipped to a local Toyota dealer within a week. These were bolt on, and did require some drilling, but they were solid, and the fit was great. I think one of the pictures of the Tacoma with the rails on it is still posted on their website.

Doesn't look like you can retain the Rubi rails when they are used. That's a shame as the Rubi rails hide the pinch seam.

Twice as expensive at the Ace sliders. Are they twice as strong?

DOM processed tubing like the ones used in roll cage applications. Very Very strong. These weigh in about 58lbs each.

unlike the ace rock sliders, these bolt on to the frame for better support.

i never seen any rock slider fail anyways.

I've seen pros and cons of frame mounting. Do these require drilling the frame?

^many manufacturers including white knuckle offroad bolts on to the frame which do require drilling. You can make it more stronger than it is by welding it.

I don't see any cons of having a frame mounted rock slider.

You give up some clearance, there is a possibility of hanging the mounts in the rocks more often. That's about it though.

For most folks its not enough of a difference to matter.

Can you provide pics of the pinch seam covers on an Unlimited? From afar and close up? Do they bolt directly to the holes already on the seams?

Those are nice but at less than half that cost SHIPPED to my door and powder coated, I opted for KO Offroad rock sliders. When they came, I was impressed with the quality too. Had them welded up in 20 minutes at a local shop for $35! WIN!

So do these install to existing holes or do they require drilling new holes? Pretty sure I'm going to pull the trigger on these in a few weeks, but wanted to know what install entails.

Thanks,
