The original thread was asking for "What other options are out there besides ACE" and I was just throwing our hat in the rink. How that thread ended up combined with this thread is beyond me.
We consider ACE a friend company of ours. They, like us make their product right here in Michigan. Whether you buy from them or us, we both appreciate the support and most importantly you are getting a first class product from either of our companies.

Don't feel bad we all make mistakes.
Do you like the Ace rails better then the stock Rubi X rails? If so you could install the Ace rails and sell the stock Rubi X rails.
You could also pick up a set of standard Rubicon rails and install them with the Aces, if you like that look.
Just a thought.

|HK_Runner||It will be a while before my (non-ACE/non-JCR) sliders arrive, but when they do, I'll post up. I am sure this thread will easily keep going till then.|

Never did post mine once I got them.
Overall happy with them. Did seem weird they came with no instructions considering you have to grind the washers down. I knew this going in so wasn't a big deal for me.
Also one had a gouge in it which kind of sucked but figured they would get more so just touched it up.

So finally after one month my Ace Sliders came into use
I am in my jeep at the hospital texting my husband and a female pulls up beside me to park. I didn't think anything of it until WHAM.....her door hits my sliders. Does she even say something as she is exiting her vehicle....NO!
I didn't care - did some damage to her car door as I did get out and check
Makes you wonder why an obese person would park so close to another vehicle when they can hardly get out of their vehicle as they are so wide - I can only think she didn't see the sliders and thought she had that extra room to squeeze out of her car. I could tell were her door actually slid up and down on the slider as they were muddy and she knocked the mud off in a pattern. So once she got out of her vehicle - it lifted up due to the lack of her weight in it.

|MELTDOWN||The JCR sliders are on my to do list. Great looking product!|

Thanks for the other options
I ended up ordering the Ace ones sense I really wanted to keep the stock Rubi rails.

|HK_Runner||I think the steel used in both ACE and JCR are the same (of course, correct me if I'm wrong). If JCR powder coats, that would be my choice over the two. I have owned ACE sliders. I'd prefer DOM tubing like White Knuckle or Shrockworks, but the price is higher. So given your price-point, you cant go wrong with ACE but the JCRs will give you a bit more clearance. The ACE sliders hang a bit low to clear and gap the Rubi rock rails.|

|jaxs1984||I would recommend adding them to the rubicon rails|
|02-13-2014 01:02 PM|
These are absolutely awesome and you won't regret them!
Very well made, super tough and easy to install

ACE Rock Sliders
Ok after much debate and enough searches to give me a headache I have decided on the Ace Rock Sliders.
While I have found a ton of posts on these I thought I would add one more to see if there was a better option before ordering.
Also seems to be cheapest to order direct unless I missed somewhere.

edit: nevermind, i didnt realize the rubi x had different sliders from the standard rubicon. My bad

I'm seriously considering getting some of these rails. I have never seen them in person. I would like to get an idea of how low they hang down. I've also considered that weld on but they don't seem to be popular so it's tuff finding info on them.
Would someone with stock fenders be willing to measure the gap between the fender and the tallest part of the rail? That would give me a good idea of the height. If it makes any difference, I have a 2 door.

|wheatbackdigger||I am an idiot, I ordered the Ace rails while my Rubicon X was being built. Did not realize the RubiX came with tubular rock rails. I did install the Ace rails, but damn did it look stupid with the existing rails. Now I have ground down washers holding my jeep together and a set of Ace rails sitting in my living room. First mod shot to hell.|

Not sure if it has been brought up yet, but over the summer, a few people including myself were mentioning some vibration noises in some situations, when ACE sliders and rubi rails are installed. Well, I FIGURED OUT WHY THAT NOISE IS THERE AND WHY IT WASNT ALWAYS PRESENT!!!
The answer is that SOMETIMES, especially after going through mud, a small pebble or two will get jammed between the sliders and the rails, WHICH TRANSFERS ANY AND ALL VIBRATION FROM THE SLIDERS TO THE RAILS AND THEN TO THE FRAME! Simply remove said pebbles when noise appears, and continue enjoying a rattle free ride

|southpaw75||I wanted to give a shout out to Jason for helping me get my sliders ordered! Pics to come once installed.|
