New rockers installed

I got my new rocker guards put on last night. I kind of took a chance with the company because I had not heard much about the rocker guards from them. Judging from the details they sounded very similar to other products. They are made of 3/16 plate and 1 1/2 pipe. For 266 shipped, I couldn't beat the price. They were quickly shipped and easy to install. It took maybe 2 hours for the install at no rush. They were from Trail Gear. What do you guys think?

Can't see the pic very well, but do they bolt in? Do they feel nice and sturdy?

Underneath they are attached at two body mounts and then they r bolted into the side of the tub. I can stand on them and they have no give. I'll get a couple pics of the mounts

They are about a 1/4" shy of the flatties, but it's not too bad and they are flush to rears. With stock flares I'm sure it would be perfect

Here are more pics. There are 5 bolts attaching them to the tub. Underneath they are pinched between the body and the body mount.

Trail Gear is a very reputable company. They offer more for Toyota's and Suzuki's than Jeeps. Looks good.

This is why I wasn't sure what to think. I hear people talk about their front bumper, but that is about the extent of it lol. So I kind if took a chance hoping to be as happy with the rockers as people were with the bumpers

I have there front bumper! I like it it's built pretty strong. I was looking at they're rock sliders for my next purchase and I think this sealed the deal. They look great with those flatties!

Pretty sweet, very nice! Since switching to a different rocker style last year, I miss having that rail to step on as yours have. Nice!

Ya that's one reason I like the rail on the rockers. I like the look of it, but I also thought it would help the wife get in and out of the jeep

I got them when they were fairly new and I think they were around 160. I am not sure how much they are asking now. I kno that the ones that are fade resistant are a little more

My bumper (bought on eBay) was actually built by one of the guys at TG before they started offering it, but I only have the 2 front bars vs 4 like they currently have.
