Those look great. Heard lots of good things regarding those Rock Rails. I think they would make a good addition to your Jeep.

Mine has stock rocks. Man, those look nice. Pretty rugged too.

I have also been looking at those only thing stopping me is shipping to hawaii... makes a grown man cry!! i think its a good buy since they are mounted to the frame not any part of the body looks real solid. only thing is 120lbs.

Your point well taken. Your rocks look like they need a little paint. :D

Dewayne 04-10-2009 10:51 PM

They are painted again (for now ).But the passenger side also has a crown it it also.New rails are on the list since my front bumper is on the way.

Hmm- check with your dealership, dewayne- they MAY be so decent as to warranty that :) Worth asking- worst you'll hear is no, right? :) Mark W.

Well I bit the bullet and ordered the rock sliders from LoD. They will be 4 weeks out. Once I get them I'll let you all know my thoughts on them.

When you get them, I hope we see some pics. Comments on how the install went. How you feel that they look on your car. Hope you like them.

Just got the lod rails today. Took 2months afer ordering them but I love them and well worth the wait. Dont have them on yet but hope to get them on this weekend. But I do have a question that somebody may help me with. These rails are bolt on but I also would like to weld them to the frame. Would there be any problems welding on the frame concerning the electrical systems or the ecu on the jeep ;wouldn't want to fry anything but I just dont know

Man I really like those LOD sliders they look awesome.
Can't wait to get some for my Sunny, just gotta save the $$ for 'em.

thaduke2003 06-14-2009 05:26 PM

When welding, I ALWAYS disconnect the battery. I suck at welding, but I know that much :) Mark W.

I didn't like that the frame had to be drilled and tapped for the bolts (7 for each side), but the rock rails matched up real well and install was easy. Decided against welding them in case I didn't like them.

I think they look great on the jeep and really like them. They did add a lot of weight and I can tell a difference while driving the jeep.

I've had a few people ask about them, but the place I got them from "Lod" on their web site says the are not available. Anybody know anything about that??

Here some pictures:

I recently purchaced KC Hilite rock rails from Quadratec. They look good and the price was right. They are actually cheaper online than in the catalog. They bolt directly onto the frame and the body through existing holes. No drilling and they are rock solid.

I got the River Raider's they're great!!! I can pivot off of trees or rocks if I need to or take a hard hit also. They're made from .120" tubing and 3/16 plate.:thumb:
