The I took this one. It's a little difficult to see, but the driver seat is 1 inch higher than the passenger. This was before I did the passenger seat.

They were fairly easy to put in. But you need a T50 and some leverage to get the stock bolts out.

My Jeep is nine years old, 50,000 miles, and have changed the battery once. My next one will be one of the spiral cell sealed batteries, but if you take care of the battery it should serve for quite a while.

Those are rubber. That could be very dangerous. That should be solid metal.

Been on there for four years now, I inspect them often, no problems and they are still in good shape.
I had read before, that the hockey pucks some have used was not good because of the type of hard rubber it was made from, that it would break down over time.

No problem, even when I ran home made disconnects I was always inspecting them. They will eventually get changed out.

Frame mounted Smittybilt. I would prefer the tub mounted sliders, but got these off CL for about $100 a few years ago.

Ah ok, they look nice. I'll probably get some body mounted ones at some point though. I wish ace still sold them for TJs

I'm not sure I can give you a great report as I don't really have much to benchmark against. They seem a big improvement over the stock sized Avon A/T's that were fitted before. Better ride and better grip on dry and wet roads. Not sure when I'll get them off road.
