Ok so my wife and daughter want to get me something for Father's Day... Wife told me the budget for said gift. ($300-400.) (Ain't she great?) anyways, I was thinking of some sliders. I have some questions though.....
1. Does anyone have some pics of the Jeeperman Sliders, and A to Z, on a Jeep?
2. I know that BTF and PCS are both really long waits, is there any other merchant I can order these through that might have them in stock?
3. I have looked at the A to Z, BTF, PCS, Jeeperman, Shrockworks, Gen-Right, Romken... Am I missing anyone?

I am open to any and all suggestions, and I would love to see pics of everyone's rigs...... Thanks!

AZ, look how much clearance you are giving up with those.

Here are the AtoZ Sliders. Definitely a great looking product.



And here are Gen-Rights without the bar.



Mine are more molded off the AtoZ sliders and I was more interested in the protection than needing some sort of step which I don't use anyway.

I have the Jeeperman and for MY purposes I like them, however, I wouldn't necessarily recommend them.

I did not care about the clearance loss so much because I have a total of 4" susp lift, 1.25" BL and 37" tires - even with the loss of clearance my rockers are higher than many on 35's. My wife and daughter are both knee biters and I have a bum knee so I needed something to allow access into my rig when that high. Elsewise I would have gone with the body mount such as Rockitman (#1 choice), Schrockworks (#2), or A to Z (no personal experience so for me #3).

I just don't feel like driling holes in my tub with the TJ being such a virgin and all :D
I can respect that. I didn't have any issues with that since mine already had the holes there due to the Sahara Trim Package.

I have no problem with drilling holes. I don't need the step (yet). I just want better protection. I am kinda stuck on the Shrockworks but I want to look at all my options first.
Thanks again

I went with the Toys By Troy (similar design to the A to Z and others). Had some very hard landings on them and they and the Jeep are holding up very well.

Just know that even some of the beefier rocker guards won't always hold up so go for something that is known to be really strong. My 4XDoctor guards are in the upper-end of strong guards but my rockers are getting fairly caved in underneath even them. I think it's a bit too late for me now but if I had the decision to do over again, I'd go for rocker guards that have an internal brace option like AtoZ's do.

Thats really good info thanks! I will look into this a lil more. Bigjeep thats the reason I started looking at Shrockworks, cause I have heard nothing but good good things. I Forgot all about TBT.
AZ where did you find those for $195? I want to look into those.

Thanks Again,
Hardy

I agree about both comments. just don't look at the tube as a step...look at it as a piviot point and something to keep those rocks, logs, car doors (if your's sees alot of the mall :D ). I would run shrockworks or PCS (eventhough the wait sucks). I've been looking at the shrockworks for awhile and really like the look and thickness of them, I think that this is what I'm gonna go with when it comes time to do the mod.

Exactly, that's what the rail is really for, protection against rocks etc. It's also extremely handy as a step to stand on but my rockers would be 10X more hammered than they are if it wasn't for the rail welded onto the side that absorbs 75% of the hits.
