I think they have very similar profile as the Oem flares. Once installed can u measure the distance from the edge of the door opening to the top of rocker plate, the actual height of the rocker guard and then the length at bottom and length of the top. This will give me some idea if they will fit for me. How was the installation?
The distance from the top of the slider to the bottom of the door is about 3/4". The height of the slider up the side is about 6". The length at the bottom is 46" and the length at the top is 52 3/4". The installation wasn't bad. Just make sure you have a jack to preload the sliders before marking the holes to drill. It makes a difference from just holding them up there. You will need a small holesaw (I used a 1 1/4") to cut a hole in the inside of your tub to access the back of 3 screws per side to put the nut on it. Two of the holes are toward the front of the door opening where you can tell they will be inaccessible. The third hole will need to be right under the seat belt thing at the rear of the door opening. I'm going to put the rubber floor plugs into those holes to seal them up; they fit perfectly. The sliders also come with backing plates to reinforce, which many other companies require you to buy separately. I have no complaints with mine.
Here's a pic right after installation sans a couple screws:
I'll put more pics up later on. The Jeep has been under the knife for these sliders then a locker so I haven't had much time.
