Rock Sliders

Hey, need some help on rock sliders. Picked up my new to me 2001 Monday I'm stoked, so excited I didn't realize it had no sliders, or even a step like my daughters 99. I'm not sure I want tube style, which seems to be the norm and cheapest, any other ideas? Also it has Black Diamond 3" lift with quick disco's, my RC's have a bracket to hold them when they're apart, these have nothing, should there be one?

I just installed a pair of Body Armor Rockcrawler Side Guards on my 98 Sahara. the installation was easy, they seem pretty solid and they look great too

I havent gotten rocker guards yet, but when I do I will probably go with rokmen. They seem to offer the most protection on the side of the jeep and also underneath from what I have seen.

Rokmen: Sliders

I have also thought about shrockworks...but I thought I read somewhere that they take a while to ship. Either way, they also look like a solid rocker guard.

Sniper Fab is another option.

Savy is probably the best option.

Im very happy with my Dropkick Slyders. They are beefy, unobtrusive, and look good too. They make them with an offset to compensate for whatever body lift you have as well - fits perfectly under my 1.25 body lift.

They fit under my Sahara pontoons nicely, and provide a decent step too, without sticking too far out to the side.

x2 on the Rokmen Rockers . . . I replaced the Body Armor ones which held up to hard hits, but hung down too low and rattled over bumps with the Rokmen Rockers. The workmanship, fit, and overall protection are second to none.

I have had my Warn sliders for a LONG time, and abuse them very hard. They have held up surprisingly well. Not too expensive either.

So go down to the steel yard and buy $40.00 bucks worth of steel and slap it on and see how that works. It's all of the work done in between that costs.

Check out Poison Spyder. Their Richochet Sliders have a step. They look to be strong as hell but I just put them on last weekend so haven't banged them into anything yet.
