X2. They look thin and dont look like they would have any protection besides scraping. If you where to take a hard hit they dont look like they would hold up very well...

I have the same ones. They are 3/16 steel work great and look great. That is also a great deal. I paid $200 for mine. I always get complements on them.

Are the tubes 3/16'' thick? They only look maybe 1 1/2'' total?

They are heavy not sure of the weight. I would say 35lbs per side. Not much sag if any. The paint did start chipping on one of them. I am going to spray it with bedliner. I have had them for a year and I do drive on salty roads living in Michigan.

I am in the process of installing those rockers today. My friend just put the smittybilt xrc rockers on his jeep and these are pretty much identical. They feel sturdy as hell. I will be testing them out next weekend, so I will see how they hold up. I got them for 165 and free shipping

i have these on mine and I love them. My only complaint about them is that the cutout for the jeep logo didn't line up exactly on the driver side, but you have to get close to even notice that. The paint is holding up fine on them and they're plenty thick enough for what the average offroader will run into. The welds also seem well done where the tubing is attached.

Looks great man yeah but i agree with you that would be the one thing i would change is the way its shaped. But definitley looking like this rocker is the best bang for your buck.

Ordered these mon. One question. Do you have to grind old nut certs off for these to snugg up. On mine they stick out just enough to make me think they will affect the fit.

I suggest supporting one of the listed vendors. I guarantee the ebay one was made in China and copied from a supporting WF vendor's R&D. I'd also be more than happy to discuss Made in USA vs China, and why this type of thing is suffocating American manufacturing in another thread.

Was looking through your web site and seen the rock sliders listed, they seem solid! Why do they say not for sale? Just want to know for when the time comes for me to buy some. Thanks

They are made to order. This way I can do the tube work and any laser cut out designs to the customer's specifications. It's too expensive for me to let several hundreds of dollars of production inventory rust away on a shelf when today's market favors the cheapest way to do something over quality craftsmanship and engineering.

Ok thanks, your sliders will most likely end up on my rig at some point

Hey man, I'm totally with you. That was one of the big reasons I had wanted a jeep. Being 18 years old and having only a couple of hundred in the bank, buying rockers that are a 100-200 dollars more then the cheap ones doesnt make sense to me. If you could tell me you would be able to create rockers for me that would be as cost effective as the chinese ones, then I would without a doubt go American but for me to spend 3/4 of my bank account on 2 strips of metal for the side of my jeep doesnt really make much sense for me to do. Hope u understand. Look at my signature

I put mine on last weekend. I didn't have to grind anything. I was mainly buying them because I liked the way they looked, but I was quite surprised at the weight and how solid they feel. I like mine. What nut serts are you referring to?

The nut certs for the old plastic flare. Mine protrude out from the body just a little. It may not make a difference I was just curious if anyone had to grind those.

I thought the same thing at first, but I ended up just leaving them there.

Ill be honest I looked into soft tops and rails for my winter upgrade. I went with softtopper frameless top because it was made in america. It was couple hundred dollar upgrade. Wich left my budget short for what I really wanted. Thought about making my own rails but decided for the cheap qick route. But now for the future I have the template of the one I like.

Settling for overseas-manufacturered parts kind of trumps that preference, wouldn't you say?
