I think poison spider rock sliders are the best.

It's what I run and they are some of the best you can buy. Easy of installation is not easy.

They go between the body mounts and the body and I had to cut 1/4" off each body mount to have them fit flush. Need some good tall jackstands and a tall floor jack to make it easier.

Best cheap way to cut body mounts was a hacksaw and gojo hand cleaner as lubrication. Ask me how long it took to figure that out!

Yea, a bit difficult to install but worth it. Being mounted the way they do makes them super strong. BTW ditch the steps and flare extensions IMO.

It's a different approach. Apparently they are very strong.

There's a few people on here with them.

Yeah I was gonna take the steps off today. But it rained all day and I put my hard top on and now with the roof racks it won't fit in my garage... I like the racks but they maybe a problem. I had my hard top painted over the summer and my buddy which is my painter told me to go flat black. Well I wanted something glossy. Now that I put it on, I wish I would of went flat... Of course he said "I told you so". Banghead

I would say Rokmen ot AtoZ fab for Rock Sliders. Mounting as stated above is pretty straight forward as well.
