Looking to get a set of rocker guards. Show us what you have got! And how much it set you back! Thanks!

Lots of rubicon owners swap out their rockers for aftermarket. I got a free set and converted them to sliders with 1.75" DOM tubing.

Check CL and classifieds

Best looking in terms of prettiness or best looking in terms of strength and ability to protect the tub from everything shy of a nuclear blast? Budget?

Nice looking work, they'd look even nicer with a pair of strengthening supports in the middle of that step. :)
I would agree but its also more weight.the main plate is 3/16, tubing is 1 3/4 .120 wall.the top step plate is 1/8th.I can make them how ever though.
It would give an excuse to do some dimple die action...lol

I only suggest it because a big rock would make short work of that long unsupported span. That tube would work great as is as a step, not so well as protection. The weight of two short pieces of 1.25" as center reinforcement would be insignificant. My way of thinking is if I have more to weld, the happier I am. :D

I couldn't post the pics from my iPhone of my free Rubi slider conversion. I have used them quite a bit to kick the rear over off a rock and slide over some pretty nice obstacles on the Rubicon. I am more than happy with what I got for free, then modded...

I made my own out of 3/16 steel with 7 inches of under tub coverage. If I was looking to buy a set I would go with aluminum from Savvy, much lighter than steel.

Stronger. The design is way better. The Savvys are what I plan on upgrading to when I can trash my Mopar rock rails.
I wonder if beer cans were made out of steel if they would crush easier....

Ill put the beer cans that protect my tank and the nose of my rig against whatever you run, anytime, and at 1/4 the weight to boot.
