My vote is for the A to Z's, too.

They are dirty, but maybe it helps.

Haha thanks guys. Kind of a mixed bag between A to Z and Rokmen. Ill check the prices and look for any differences... What do you guys think about the powdercoating they offer? Did you all go that route? or get them bare steel and rattle can them? I dont want a textured coating. I want a smooth black metal. What type of paint would you all suggest? and what brand of bed liner should I use on my tub?

Rokmen are ww2ww. The welds are sweet. Go rattle can....they will get scratched. Jeff @ Rokmen is great to deal with. I went with the gaskets and internal braces.

Both are good. You cant lose. Definitely rattle can. That way you won't get pissed off the first time they get a big scratch from the rocks.

A to Z ww2ww rocker guards are sitting on my front steps when I get home. Got the soft top on last night after much frustration and cussing. A lot louder with the soft top but I expected that.

What type of rattle can paint is best? Want a smooth finish and probably semi gloss or satin...

Krylon Fusion Satin seems to be a favorite of many. That's what I plan to use on my tub armor when I get it back.

BTW, when you are buying all this stuff for your Rubi, always check first to see if you get a Jeep Forum discount.

Krylon fusion is a plastic paint which people use for painting there flares and such, not sure how well it will work on metal....

Rustoleum spray on bedliner looks awesome on sliders and bumpers... just make sure you go over it with a clear coat rattle can or even a shiny black, b/c just the bedlinner will fade after a while....

i brush on rustoleum on my frame. i cant imagine it would look too bad if it was rolled onto the sliders. rocks will still get to it, but will stand up a little better to mud being thrown at it.

If you want the powdercoat look and feel then get some Rustoleum Textured... great stuff. Very durable and easy to touch up.

Just another option.

I stand corrected. I spoke without being fully in the know. Thinking back, Krylon Fusion is always talked about in regards to flares. Sorry for the wrong info. Hunter is looking for smooth finish, but I like the idea of the textured. I'm actually thinking of switching out my crappy sliders for some Rokmens since I have Rokmen tub armor that will be going on this summer. The tubes on my sliders have severe gouges in them. I hope that better quality tube sliders will stand up better to the abuse I subject them to.

Hunter, you still planning on joining this weekend? The numbers have dwindled down, but there are still a few of us going and mostly beginners, so it would be a good time for checking out the place and cutting teeth.
