Shrockworks, PSC, Warn, Other?

ok so I've been looking at sliders from shrockworks, PSC, warn, and some other manufactures. I was wondering if there are pro's or con's to these, I'm looking at the rock sliders with the tube pivot guard. I know people here have these, how do they hold up when hittin the rocks? is there any site or place I should look when buying that will give me a good price? thanks

PSC has some great products and I have some of it on my YJ, but I suggest you stay away as they are swamped and it could take months to get your parts. HTH

I'm like Hackle, I really like the PSC stuff and had lots of it on my jeep. I don't like how they are behind on parts delivery. I am a very big fan of shrockworks. My buddy has a set of them and I like how they bolt up to the tub. They are very beefy and he said he had no problems getting them in a few days.

I like the BTF rockers, as I have them now, but wouldn't want to buy a set unless they were in stock and ready to ship. They aren't having much luck on the shipping department either.

I have the shrockworks and they have done a great job for me. The outer tube works great as a pivot and they wrap rather far under the body. Below is a side pic.

I have an order at BTF right now and if they do not ship it on Tuesday as promised I will cancel it and order elsewhere. Both BTF and PSC are hitting the same problem as they are a victum of their own sucess. They built great products then could not keep up. It sucks in this business as all of us want our stuff quickly. I hope they both get back on track soon.

AtoZ Manufacturing is the current favorite du jour amoung a lot of rock crawlers I know. Zach owns AtoZ and he has earned a solid reputation for quality and strength, and he didn't let me down when I had him make my new custom stubby bumper for me.

Rocker guards with external rails welded onto their surface are really nice. The rail serves to keep the rocks/obstacles at bay, gives a nice point around which to pivot around anything in your way, and gives a nice platform to stand on for whatever. And if you have extreme strength needs, Zach has an optional internal rocker guard brace that I should have had behind my 4XDoctor rocker guards last weekend.

If you are looking for Shrockworks stuff check out www.absoluteoffroadphx.com. Joe is a board sponsor here and will give you a great deal.

I also have the crapper bar on my sliders and use it quite often to pivot on rocks. Keeps the sharp stuff out of the body.

I agree. I waited 4.5 months for my front 60 truss. I waited 6 months for my 14 bolt diff cover. In the beginning I didn't mind waiting. After my jeep sat for a couple months it was really hard to stay focused when I couldn't get parts. I'm glad I stuck with it though cause changing plans one place meant I had to change the build elsewhere. I heard BTF is moving locations again to help suit their demand. The lull time really sucks for those building now but the outcome of patience was worth it for me.

how do the rockers mount to the body other than the flush mounts that get screwed into the tub? and what do ya'll think about warrior and olympic? should I just anti-up/save-up and go with the shrockworks?

I have the Jeeperman frame mounted ones now. Because I needed a step for the wife and Kids as much as I needed a slider.
If I didn't have this requirement I would go with Rokmen Mercenary sliders.

Wheel well to wheel coverage.
Full under body protection
internally reinforced.
