Thats like a aprox $120.00 less, or a huge cost difference! Granted their probably not top of the line, but still look fairly solid looking. If your not an abusive/basher off roader my guess is they'll work out just fine. Were still in a ression and so money's not falling off the trees. So ya gotta so do what you wallet let's ya.

Installed the rockers this evening! Great fit and a nice look IMO. rhino lined underneath them to prevent any rust or rubbing.

Looks really good. I've seen some sliders that can be used as side steps as well but in different style.

I used to have some on my old tj but I've never seen ones that have the plate from the bar to the guard

Look pretty nice. What's the thickness of the plate and the tubing? Was/is there a data or spec sheet that shows them?

I didn't receive a data sheet. The plate is probably 1/8" thick? Tubing 1 1 3/4? Somewhere pretty close to there

Like I said I don't receive a spec sheet so I wouldn't know how to determine that. I hit the tubes to slide them into place under the tub and they were pretty solid.

Turned out nice! I looked at these but in the end I decided on Metalcloaks because of how stout their built. I could never find any spec's on the ones off ebay. They look nice though on your jeep.

Silly question...How do you lift the body up enough to slide the flange between the upper rubber and the tub? I've got the three body mount bolts under the door removed, and a jack to take the weight off of the frame, still have no separation?? What am I missing?

Never mind, I figured it out. Not a bad product, certainly worth it's discounted cost. 3/16" plate. Can't tell the tube wall thickness, but it seems thin. Feels like it will hold up as a step for sure, but may crush if met with a heavy hit on rock. It'll do just fine for me.

OP do they go all the way from wheel well to wheel well? I like this style ( with the plate from the tube to the wall ) and I was looking at the JCR or Gen Rights. Both are 300 and 400. The thing I like about the Gen Rights is the plate is smaller and are probably more durable than these. But since they are just under 200 dollars and I don't predict I will be severely bashing them into anything ( so soon ) you may have just saved me $200. I don't like how the plate is that long but i'm just splitting hairs anyway.

edit: also they come with a rubber gasket that goes between the rocker guard and the door for vibration but you seem to have taken care of that with rhino liner. Thoughts on using the rhino liner afterwards? I'm gonna consider making my own gasket somehow.......

I have no regrets with these sliders. They go all the way from the edges of the flares. I used rhino liner cause I didn't want anything to rust like were I drilled wholes and I welded in new sections on the rocker guards to remove rust. ( only rust the jeep had ) I'm sure you could use a good quality 3M double sided tape as a gasket! The rhino liner would be more durable tho. These guys on eBay have killer deals. I just bought this bumper off of them. Supposed to arrive this afternoon actually. $230 free shipping. Can't beat it. Winch plate and It's all 3/16th steel. People say you get what you pay for which is true, but I'm not running into trees or even remotely coming close to hitting somethin with my sliders on the trails where I'm at. These products will work fine for me. As for a winch I don't plan on goin a cheap route, I think warn is the only way to go!
