How are the trails there (length, difficulty, traffic, etc)? I live near Raleigh, and love getting up to the mountains when I can, but it's kind of a whole-weekend affair for me.

My buddy got a nose job yesterday. Got a used never mounted Smittybilt bumper from a forum member and a mounted never used Smittybilt X20 winch from a local jeep club member. Was a great day.

Getting the full size spare mounted and wishing the weather would improve a bit so I can get the gas tank skidplate on.

not right away, going to test them before I do anything, they are still in transit anyways. I don't typically do a review until I have had some good time and drive time with the item(s) in question, will be doing a review on my led fogs but I have had those at least 4+ months so far, but waiting until I have been able to subject them to different weather conditions.


Im not like most of the "reviewers" you see on Amazon/youtube going "i just bought this product 5 stars its great!" I prefer honest and good reviews (which seems to be harder and harder to find these days!!)


Granted I CAN do one as soon as you want, but it would be disingenuous of me to do so.....especially to the Jeep community!

In other words, say that after driving on the road to reach the trailhead, your front is at 27 and the rear at 30 when you start to air down to 15 psi for the trail ride. Will the air flow out of each tire at a nearly equal rate or will mechanics permit the tires to deflate at different rates and allow both tires to reach 15?

Sorry Iím not clearer in what Iím asking.


Once you connect both tires they equalize (thatís just physics, Pascalís law I believe). When you air up or down air is equally added or subtracted.

Agreed. We have one that does all 4 at the same time. Never an issue.

Tell you what though, i cant wait to wheel it with 5.38s and the 4:1 rubi case.


With 5.13 gears, 4:1 case, auto trans, 37 inch STT pros as well, I can tell you that it is a monster at crawling. I can only imagine how much better 5.38 would be

While doing my 5000 mile 5-tire rotation i found the passenger side rear brake line rubbing on my rear shock bar. Re-routed the brake line and wrapped it for a little protection. I think an adjustable rear track bar is in my immediate future!

Guess I should have taken the time to be clearerÖ
Hopeful I did a better job this timeÖ
I assume the equalization is not instantaneous and is a function of how a large a difference in air pressure between the two and how large of a volume of air is being expelled between the two tires.
Do the tires equalize quickly?
If deflating, air flows from both tires, but guessing that the tire having the higher pressure bleeds down faster than the other tire until it catches up?
Is the deflation rate slow enough from road pressures to allow the two tires to reach equilibrium prior to reaching the desired off-road pressure and if not, does one tire just stop deflating and the other keep going until both are at the desired pressure?
If inflating; same thoughts, but in reverse.

What did you do to your JK today?

Itís been awhile since posting but I actually got stuck last weekend. Self recovered using my winch and also pulled a buddy out.

Good to hear! I debated for a long time on 5.13 vs 5.38 and in the end decided to go as low as I could purely for the crawl ratio. Nice looking jeep you got too.

Thanks! I havenít been on the forums as Iíve been focusing more on Instagram lately. If you want to follow the build and see some videos is nc_jk_crawler on there.

They equalize more or less instantaneously. Once the tires are connected they are effectively one big bag of air.

Exactly. My four tire system reads off of one gauge. I was doubtful and curious to see if each individual tire read what the central gauge claimed. I've gone around all four tires both before and after tire deflation and inflation to verify. They are always within 1 psi of each other which is good enough for me.

Awesome and easy little mod that made a big difference. I feel like it woke my Jeep's engine up out of a nap

They are okay steps. Can't speak of their capability as sliders. They look nice, though.

I know you have type a lot already about this, but, if you would head over and drop a review on the site here, that would be awesome.

Have a great evening.

I have the 4dr version of those sliders on my JKUR. When I mounted them I didn't bother taking off the Rubicon rails - mainly because I thought the rig looked better with them left on. A few weeks ago though, I took the rubi rails off and now the Barricade sliders work MUCH better as a step. MUCH better.

Thanks for that update; an added bonus is you can sell the OEM rails to recoup some of the expense from the new ones.
I looked at the installation instructions. These look to attach via the body mounts and not the pinch weld seam. That would seem like the stronger method; however, I wonder if this is enough points of contact. The rails I had on my TJ were also bolted through the frame rail and were strong enough to protect the body of the Jeep from a substantial impact with a rock (or tree ). Wondering whether or not these are substantial.

They are fairly substantial. I haven't truly tested their ability to withstand sliding over rocks, but they are pretty beefy and the attachment points are solid.

I imagine they'd bend if you came down on them with some force, but I'd feel confident using them as a jacking point if I needed to.

Added Rivnuts

So I got sick and tired of fighting with the damn push pins that come on the bumper frame cover and the skid plate. They have a Phillips head that you're supposed to be able to "screw out" but they always strip. So I decided to use a 1/2 drill bit and drill the holes a little bigger and added 5/16 rivnuts into the holes. I then used grade 8 bolts with 1/4 size grade 8 washers. The pieces are super solid now. They don't move when kicked like they used to, and this will make it much easier if ever needing to remove them again. Things like fog lights, tow hooks, vacuum canister, or any sway bar issues usually require the removal of your front "skid plate". This will be especially easier when you install your aftermarket front bumper.
