Which Rock Sliders?

hello.

iīm going to order some rock sliders for me at 4wd.com.
but i donīt know which one.

are the olympic slider rock rails a good choice? they are bolt-on and easy to install. but will they give me a good underbody protection?

the poison spider rocker knockers look stronger to me. but are they as easy to install as the olympics?

or are some other brands better?

thanks for your help.

out of the two, I would get the poison spyder ones.

@orange05tj:

i looks like you have to drill into the frame when you install them. the olympics look like them, but for them you donīt have to drill.
the PSCs are bigger and cover the body to the frame under the jeep.

the olympics are only mounted with 3 bolts. i donīt think that they are really strong.

@orange05tj:
could you please take some pics when you install your rocker guards? are these the same? http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.as...6&partID=14317

I have the PSC's on my YJ. Once I got over the 18 week wait they were great. Bolt to the tub plus the tie into the body mount. You sandwich it in and cut 3/16 off the body bushing. They aren't going anywhere.

the rock hard sliders seem to be stronger than the qlympics and still easy to install.

are thy bolted directly to the frame? or do i have to put some plastic or vinyl between them?

Not sure if they are stronger, but they are 3/16" steel plate and weigh alot. The UPS man almost broke his back carrying the box. I put one up to the Jeep and the spacers on the bottom are on the body, not the frame. I'm guessing that I drill through the floor and use the 2" bolts and nylock washers that came with them. I'll know more this weekend. Seems pretty easy to do.

Heres a pic of the spacers that are on the bottom. It says to drill up and use the provided hardware.

After looking at the Olympics, it says they require no drilling, just bolt up. Sounds weak to me. Whats holding the sides up?

are the rock hard sliders strong enough to use them with a hilift to lift the TJ?

I've had my since 04' & really dont remember what brand they are but..when I installed them I ran a bead of black RVT silicone around the edges & bolt holes just to keep the grime out from between them & the body. Good luck, Oh, I also bought the sliders with horizontal rub bars vs the angled ones because they offered a better step. I'll shut up now....... later

Well I wouldn't think you'd recommened another brand. Thats like me recommending a non-union scab outfit to install fire protection systems in a building. I'd tell them you get what you pay for. I am happy with the sliders I purchased, good price and took 3 days to get. No complaints here.

I love you man, but can you not do anything, without approval????????? Shit, a little research, and you would have your questions, answered,

What lift should I use, what tire should I get, what light would blind the on coming traffic, the best. Come on people, do the research, and adjust those damn fog lights where you don't blind everyone, coming towards you. Shjot fire!!!!!!!!!!!!..........


Ok, Ok, I hate helpless people..........sheeeesh............:flip off:

Union labor is better? Thats just a line the union pounds into the members heads.

Abolish the Bacon-Davis act.
