Rock Sliders

Anyone have a recommendation for rock sliders on an XJ? I am looking for something sturdy and not too expensive. Thanks for any help!

Tomken's 2x4 rock rails. Look like they work, and not too expensive. Or, make your own if you can.

I am currently running Olympic RockSliders. They are sturdy as hell, since I've come down on them hard many, many times. The only thing I had to do is powdercoat them, b/c the paint started to chip, but that's it. I also cut the ends(near the front wheel-wells) and put a flat skid, so my Boggers wouldn't rub. Here are some pics.

I will be getting the Rocky Road rails. They come in two styles, the rockrail and the steprail. They claim both are indestructable and have a lifetime guarantee against bending.

Eric, I like those Rocky Roaders with the step. Very nice, sturdy and not TOO pricy. Will have to put them on the list.

Thanks man!
