97flexy I run a set like you were looking at except with out the tubes. they work good for me. but If I was going to do it again I'd just make em. you can make really HD ones for around 2 bills if you desire to have 1/2" wall on them.

Yeah that's what I did. I would of rather had the exact bit though. The 1/2 inch bit worked fine though

Awesome! I ordered mine with the extra bar like you did, but it looks like you also had them add a tab underneath. I like how the tabs add a lot of reinforcement from a different attachment angle.

Now that I've had mine a little while, my only complaint would be the bed liner coating I ordered. I don't think the surface was prepped as well as it could have been, because it is quite fragile in spots, but fairly durable in others. If I refinish the sliders, I'll definitely hit them with some course grit sand paper first, then a shot of acetone to get rid of any oil...

The tricky part of the install for me was the "rivet" bolts on the tabs. They worked very well, but it took me a bit to figure them out. I used a 1/2" drillbit for the holes, then just wallowed them out a little. Would advise caution on that part primarily because the install is easier if the rivet can actually be shoved up into the hole and stay there on it's own rather than falling out, etc. My impact wrench made this part a lot easier too.

Aside from that I hit each recessed allen bolt (highly recommend) with a little spray paint. It rained the day after install, and I noticed small rust spots on the allen bolts where my wrench had bit into the sides slightly. No biggy though... very happy with the hardware.

Knowledge97 After looking around and doing some research I decided to go with these (Rugged Ridge 11504.15 - Rugged Ridge Black Textured Rocker Panel Guards for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec). I was able to get a couple of bucks off, and got free shipping from the local jeep shop. When I picked up the box I was surprised at just how heavy they are. I know Rugged Ridge might not be the most expensive, but I am very happy with the product so far. They came packaged well with all hardware and instructions included. I like the way they flow with the stock fenders.

sm31 Thought I'd update this thread real quick with my experiences from the B.C.C. rock sliders...

The welds are not works of art like some other sliders, but they do look nice, and they are very "robust". Besides, my jeep isn't pretty anyway...

The install was very straightforward. The hardware worked perfectly, and I particularly liked the additional "tabs" the B.C.C. sliders have that extend further under the body with additional mounting points.

In terms of options, I got an additional support brace, and the bed liner.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, but that's all I have here at work.

Got mine here too. Zach recomended to not get the powder coating and just paint them since you're hitting rocks with them anyhow. Also a good amount of savings.

Quick update... Just received the B.C.C. sliders last night. Talk about "armor"... Dang they are stout!! They were very well packaged. Took me 10 minutes to get them unwrapped. In spite of that, they are so heavy that the sharp ends still worked their way through a little bit. I may recommend to BCC that he try and find some sort of hard plastic cap to go over the ends... but I'm not sure that would make a difference.

I paid extra for them to be coated (some sort of bedliner, can't recall), and they look fantastic. All mounting hardware is present and looks to be of high quality. Clear and concise install directions were included as well.

I probably won't get these mounted until the weekend, but I'll try to snap pics of them as I do. At this point I am confident that my jeep could do a nice "rock pirouette" on these without so much as a ding... maybe scratch the bed liner a little, but that's it!
