So this gave me all the more reason to get sliders, also showed the wife I needed them since she was in the jeep when it happened, and her dad has them and used them to get around it she said I could get them. I've been lookin at the trail gear ones they look to be pretty good and only run like 250, does anyone have these and have good/bad comments or can anyone recommend some other ones that aren't to rediculious priced

You look like you actually use them so I would normally reccomend the Savvy or Rokmen but they are priced at the higher end. Don't get the trail gears, they aren't known for taking a lot of abuse either. I would look at these for cheap and bulletproof.

I have Brooks Custom's and they were right around 250. Look a lot like the AtoZ's Moab just posted. They're all hand made to order, solid steel and real heavy duty.

I picked up some steel for bout 50 bucks. Painted and was able to mount up and they work great. Real easy to do and I'm not the greatest fabricator either.

Oh, sorry,, I'm obviously on the wrong forum,, I thought we were discussing whether or not the food at White Castle has any nutritional value. My vote for Rock Sliders would be the ones from A to Z,, local business here, so I'm a bit prejudicial..

The free shipping code does not work, but the 20% off BLACK2012 still works at least for now.

i have the trail gear and like them a lot! i haven't slammed on them super hard, but i can't imagine them being any weaker than the other 3/16 steel rockers.

When u mean u haven't slammed them what exactly do u mean, and that's what I was looking at they all seem to be the same material setup, I just want to be able to use them as a pivot point to set on a rock and use to pivot the jeep, when I need it because that's how this damage happened, I didn't actually hit the rock like drop on it, I caught the line trying to avoid it and when my wheel caught and locked it just pulled me right into it and I had to pivot off of the body to get over the rock

Savvy sliders. 3/16 Aluminum plate with a 3/16 steel plate over that. Double the protection. Wrangler forum discount 450.00. I powder coated them body color. And those are Stainless phillips head thru bolts.

Try the JCR crusader ones. They were $249 to my door. I have yet to abuse them, but they mount to the rear 2 body mounts and bolt to the body. They are 3/16" and should do exactly what you want. They are forum sponsers and made in the USA.

Yea I've seen ones like that before and was looking at ones like that before but now I need ones that mount to the tub to cover up the damage that has already been done

that would make since before you put them on the tub, you prime or paint where the paint cracked so she dont rust up on you !

TG sliders are OK at very best....if you want to regret the purchase after a while and end up buying twice, go for it. Otherwise, bypass sliders that tie into the body mounts at all and go with quality pieces like Savvy offers. There's not a more durable, well-thought-out slider available.

Yes, I've owned both.

X2 on these I paid about $250 shipped. I got the ones with the rock rail. They have stood up to much abuse including slow speed drops down onto rocks and the pivoting you are describing. My tub would be mangled without them. They also serve as a nice step for getting in and out of the Jeep.

Does anybody know if there are any significant strength differences in the square sliders vs. round tubes? I'm also ready to pull the trigger on a set and like the look of a less tradition square slider, but I don't want to sacrifice strength for looks. I've read great reviews regarding the sliders that A to Z fab sells.
