me? I am going to repaint them one last time before I buy new ones... but those aren't just scratches... the tube is completely collapsed in a few spots, mostly in the middle. Hard to see it in that photo. I'll take another photo tomorrow maybe, cuz it looks really cool maybe I will just keep it

ygohome I think I'm about ready for some new rocker sliders... the ones I've got are pretty beat up and ugly, but they still work great.



probably going to get the genright without a bar. bare metal so I can spray paint it easily when it gets scratched, and it will get scratched alot. PowderCoat and rock sliders don't mix well because you can't touch them up. But if you don't plan to touch them up when the get scratched or if you don't plan on scratching them at all then a good powder coating will look great.

if you plan to wheel it then I'd get some strong frame mounted or tub mounted sliders. Absolute Offroad has a good selection. Worth saving up for in my opinion.

orange05tj It will look something like this. This is when I first got the Jeep and thought that chrome was in style.

01-07-2008 07:32 PM
tobycat1 Maybe not, it might make it look a little low..., but thats not as bad as 27" tires with it.

if your jeep is high enough they wouldn't look too bad...most jeeps aren't that high though. starts lookin decent when ya get at least 4" of lift. i still prefer body mounted though

tobycat1 I personally refuse to put any holes in my jeep that would be visible if i remove the part, but thats just me. Plus I like a lower bar, just a style choice for me.
01-07-2008 06:07 PM
mrbigjeep not that great of a deal.

with the side bar they are $210. plus shipping. bare steel too.

and not only that but they offer virtually no protection underneath and they also don't tie into the bottom in any fashion. so they could cave the rocker in if you slid off a rock.
01-07-2008 05:56 PM
dbwvu Go for the real deal. I've been drooling over these lately

http://www.nates4x4.com/catalog/prod...products_id=53

seems like the most reasonably priced too
01-07-2008 05:49 PM
tobycat1 I ordered em so chicks can get in. Some damage is going to come their way, but they're cheap
01-07-2008 10:26 AM
cavediverjc They were all the rage in the late 80's and the 90's. Now they just get in the way. You'd be better off spending your money on a set of actual sliders. They'll be a little more expensive, but you always get what you pay for when it comes to Jeeps. Just my opinion, take it or leave it. Do what you think is best for your style of driving and take all of our opinions with a grain of salt. You know what they say about opinions!!

mrbigjeep i took mine off too...didn't like the look at all.
01-06-2008 11:40 PM
Chad P Mine actually got ripped off when on of my drivers ran into the side of the jeep. So I am putting on poison spyder rock sliders on it

foxinthemudd I got some like that, not the same at all. can't wait to get rid of them and put on some real sliders... however with that said they have saved my ass a few times from stumps and rocks...they'll do for now I guess.

Darton The bars come with new longer body mount bolts. You'll remove the stock body mount bolts, then run the new bolts back in through the supplied mounting brackets. Then the bars will bolt to the brackets that will hang down just under the body line.
