Rokmen mercenary rockers

Freaking hooray drove up to Rokmen yesterday and picked up some bad ass rockers. Just got done priming them and am going to paint them soon. Was going to powder coat but Jeff convinced me its really a waste especially if you're going to use them. Like a kid at Christmas right now.

Thanks guys. I found a little crease in the rocker on the driver side from that damn stock step from eagle rock, so figured its time. He cut me a pretty sweet deal also. Gunna try to get that sheet metal more straight before the rockers or would that just cause the paint to chip?

Personally I would just leave it unless it wont let the rockers sit flat.

They aren't on the jeep yet. Going to use bed liner on them hopefully it will look good. Im hoping to put them on this weekend if I don't get the urge to go jeeping.

Side opinion.... I used bedliner in the past on some armor... I wouldn't personally do it again.... The inside of the slider scraped up the paint where it was mounted increasing the probability of rust and I found it didn't adhere to the metal as well once it was scratched up to touch it up after a good run with them doing their job! My new jeep has just rattle can satin black sliders and they have been much easier to deal with. I also like that the smooth surface doesn't seem to hold dirt or snag rags as much when washing.

What I think would be REALLY cool though is shooting a set with normal black paint, but bed lining the top of the step area for some extra traction on your feet when stepping into the jeep! Would be a lot more work though...

Yeah just tried a coat of the bed liner but it reacted with the primer and started to just peel it and the primer off :-( gunna let it dry then assess if I should sand it all off and just use paint. Weak

Ouch!! I've never had that happen!!! I'd love to know the primer and bed liners you used so I never have to do the same thing! I loath sanding....

I was gonna say don't use bedliner on your sliders either...too late ! The moisture in the air was probably your problem with adhesion.

Just use some rustoleum hammered black or any rattle can. Easy touch ups.

I use mine as steps all the time thank u and I'm 6' as far as using bed liner for a traction device I use it on my sliders and I still slip around if u wanna use something for the top to step on I would use some grip tape. I just picked up some from auto zone and threw it on last night between the rain and its super tough and sticky it's rained non stop since and hasn't moved a bit I love it and you could just run a strip across the top of the sliders and be good. That's just my opinion though

Very nice. I wasn't sure if they were still open as I'd e-mailed them via their web UI about rockers & some work and never heard back. I'll be adding some of these over the winter.
