Nearly all companies sell their XJ rocker guards with and without a tube step. The perks to having the tube step is they provides side protection from rocks and trees, and also provide a step for vehicle entry and roof rack access.

I like my rigidco sliders I lost 0 clearance under the rocker and they have allowed me to pivot around boulder also keeping them off my doors. And 200 was not bad either

yeah i know what they are for, and i know how they work but im building my tire carrier so i wont have a roof rack, and i love the JCR crusader series rock sliders but i dont like how the bad sticks out, if it were angled up more id like it a little more, i wasnt the crusader series ones without the bar.

They use to offer a stage 1 that didn't have the bar. Get in contact with them and see if they can help you out.

That sucks. I really wanted their stage 1's. They should just offer the option of a tube step or not... like everyone else does.

Nates4x4.com and custom4x4fabrication offer simple rocker guards with option steps. I know jeepinoutfitters.com had the C4x4's 2x2 rocker guard for $220 (bare or powdercoated). I've considered them since I don't wheel enough to need stiffeners.

Sorry guys! We can't have 400 different options, we are trying to simplify our production to allow product to be finished and ready. All the options that don't sell, eventually get cut.

At least you still offer "standard" rocker guards.

The XJ ones were the only model Jeep that sold enough to stick around.

JCR, you guys make GREAT stuff! ive put your front and rear bumpers on 2 of my XJ'S with nothing but complements! maybe you guys could offer your crusader series sliders as a diy kit and offer the step like you offer the pre runner hoop for the bumpers?
