foxinthemudd roger that, however its only a speed bump...good thing I can crawl over things bigger than that.

GrnTJ Ah yes...school. That is my major cash hurdle. Otherwise the rig would be built to the hilt!

foxinthemudd X2, join the club. I just bought a new warn 9k and I'm going to school as well

02Prove True... I tend to live by the "if you're going to screw up, do it right" school of thought.

...and I'm broke most of the time because of it.

foxinthemudd but then again $$$$$$. ^^^

02Prove The best rockers I've seen have been the Rockmen. They go wheelwell to wheelwell instead of fender to fender. Plus they come with reinforcement plates that go on the inside to make 'em a little tougher.

You can get them with or without the tube slider / step.

foxinthemudd I think alot of these rockers are 3/16 steel. I don't understand the obsession with the holes in the steel, wouldn't that just hang up on rocks and isn't that the point of the sliders to slide? those Nth degree sliders are pretty cool but I really like those BTF with the step rail on the side plus when I get them I can get rid of my black diamond plate and stupid nerf bars.

GrnTJ ripbiker-Im building mine from 1/4" angle iron. A bit heavy but tough as nails. They're still probably lighter than most too. If I feel like I need it I can always weld some round stock off the side as a guard. Just drill some holes down it and you got yourself a rocker guard.

Scoob-Thanks. I will post pics. Not that its too complicated but I'll show everyone how easy it truly is if you want to save yourself some $$.

Good luck with that. Show us some pics of your finished product.


N'th dont work with a body lift so keep that in mind if your going that route.

That's a great idea! I might just do that! How thick should the metal be?

debruins looks like it bolts to the framed from the directions so i would say those are good!
07-30-2007 12:02 PM
Walkeraviator Anybody try these Flat Nerf Bars? I want a step for getting in once I have it lifted, but i also want good rocker protection.

Both are available. What you're finding is the bushwhacker or rugged ridge stuff that sticks on. The actual Rubicon rocker plates that bolts underneath (and possibly rivet too). I've seen them many times at Quadratec and and probably 4WD too.
