N-Dure Rocker Guide

Has anyone a picture of these on a Jeep? Or a review of these? They are sold by JCWhitney. I cannot seem to find anything.

N-Dure Rocker Guide - JCWhitney

In all honesty all I need is a step up into the jeep for me and my lady, as I do not do any rock crawling. Most use off road is snow and clay fields.
I do not like the look of the stock steps, the Nerf Bars will be ok if I need to get them. I do like the price of Nerf Bars these days, $120, free shipping, etc.

I just thought these may be a perfect merger of function and fashion. They look like rock sliders, offer a step (hopefully), and no drilling required.

Well, you seem to have made a pretty compelling case for yourself.

Do you just need a "yes - they're awesome!" or "run away - they're awful!" sort of response?

Nerf bars for $120 on JC Whitney with NO reviews doesn't scream out that it's a well respected or popular product, but doesn't mean they are trash either. That is a bit inexpensive, so one has to wonder how they produce them so cheap - figure their cost to manufacture is ~ 25% - 50% of the retail price. That's cheap!

You can go for it - 2 year warranty.

That's my $.02

I agree. Statements like "N-Dure Rocker Guide is made from premium quality material and available in textured black finish." scare me.

They don't make mention what exactly the "premium quality material" is or anything about the manufacturing, but hey, if they will work for you, go for it. Like tarditi mentioned, there is a warranty.

Thanks you two. I am not sure what response I was expecting. I guess just hoping someone has used or heard of these products before.

A google search did not return a single review of the N-Dure products. I am not sure if its a new name or what. I've also not seen that style of product mounted before. It seems to resemble the ACE rock sliders in terms of mounting hardware.

And of course I was hoping for a few shots of these on a Jeep but if no one has bought them before that'd be wishful thinking too.

They look to be pretty typical nerf bars and presumably, Chinese-made. As for what they would look like, I had something similar on my Jeep a year ago but have since gone to Rock Sliders. See my images.

For use as a step, they'd probably be fine, but I'd paint them while they're new because they'll most-likely rust.

More importantly, the JC Whitney price says "pre sold invididually" and reads as if they're $150 each. If that's the case, there's no way I'd buy them for $300. You can get real rockers with bars from a reputable company like Rock Hard (see my images) for that price.

excellent catch. I think I'll spend a little bit more $$ than. I've seen the Body Armor Rock Crawlers for around $200-$250.

Thank you guys.

I have the N-Dure Rock sliders. They have solid welds and seem to be pretty solid. Just had out first and probably last large amount of rain in California and they held up fine. I did find a small spot that looks like it could be rusting or just some yellow residue from the road. Ill take a closer look tomorrow.

Im not sure how to post pictures on here but Ill upload them to my profile and you can check them out.
