A lot of people leave MetalCloak and GenRight out or they don't even know they exisit. They are both great companies and they have a good reputation. They're the only people I would buy from.

cbush1885 Im not sure how smittybilt gets the bad rep, I have not owned a jeep for very long but this one was bone stock when I got it 6 months ago and I have a bunch of smittybilt product on it and I am very pleased with it...

I have all xrc armor all around here is some pics of the rock sliders with steps, there is not much holding it up in the front but with it bolted to the steel fenders its on there very strong

I have heard a lot of people say that the holes done line up and the powder coat falls off and chips, (knock on wood) I have had no issues at all so far

MetalCloak, GenRight and Savvy are all good rocker builders.

All Terrain JK That other thread is "which rock sliders to buy". I don't know how to post a link with this app. If you look at Gunners sliders on that thread those are what I just purchased.

All Terrain JK He is a picture Moabrubi posted on a similar thread (hope he don't mind me re-posting his pic) that shows the under side.

If you plan on wheeling in the rocks then sliders are a good option. Rocker damage sucks when you go to put sliders on later.
Do you have a picture of the underside? Showing how they mount up on the bottom? I have been looking at rockers as well and I have looked at these but i have been leaning more toward ShrockWorks because they cover a good portion of the floor pan and also bolt up to the bottom of the tub instead attaching to the body mounts.

Some Farkin Guy My wife said she needed a step, too. I bought a step stool and keep it in the back and put whatever I want on my Jeep. I just have to spend an extra few seconds after she climbs in to grab the step stool and toss it in the back. This is also an excellent opportunity to enjoy the view while she's getting in. lol

Mr.Sills I have the Smitty sliders and love them. I got them for right around $210 if I remember correctly from 4wd.com. There are a lot of negative comments to go around about Smitty but they get the job done and saved me $200 bucks. The instal was straight forward and they don't hinder clearance at all. I'll be getting the XRP bumpers to match later on and I don't care that they're made in China.

That's why I had to get the frame mounted ones, they are more convenient to use for my wife to get into and out of the Jeep. Here's a shot of the Detours on the Jeep:



Since I was going with a frame mounted version, I didn't have to remove the Sahara side cladding .

From a strength perspective, body mounted sliders like Savvy's are much stronger and don't take away from clearance.

I bought Detours because I require a functional step for my wife and kids at the time. If that wasn't a requirement for me I would have opted for a body mounted slider.
I require a step for wifey as well. Looks like Gunner's has a decent step.
