Thanks! Speaking of enthusiasim...my top pick for rocker guards have been the ARB rock sliders. Super over kill (1.25" thick), very expensive ($470-&500), but sexy looking. I was on Craigslist last night doing my normal daily auto parts browsing and someone listed a brand new set of them! Needless to say, I negotiated and got them for $325.00!!!!! I could not be more excited. The hardware is pretty complicated and there are 3 tools you don't have in a normal shop that I will need to acquirer or rent, but I'm excited about that next project and will definitely post the video as well.

Good for you. Tools are always a better investment than paying someone to do it.

When are the sliders supposed to arrive?

They were a local Craigslist post so I actually picked them up last night. They are in my garage! I'm itching to get it started but don't want to rush it either. I like to research and prepare as much as possible because I don't think there is any 2nd tries on these. I'm not quite sure why there are rivets in the hardware? We shall see. *Hopefully I don't crack my head open like others out there

Good find then, nothing like immediate delivery, so to speak.

Research is good, Youtube is your friend as well. A good brand new drill bit is good to have too. Measure twice, drill once (per hole).

Cracking your head only hurts once.....unless you do it twice.

It appears the rivets are for the inner braces, did you get those too?

Did you get the instructions? If not I found this PDF (not sure if those are the same one's you got though)

Ahhh. Yes, those are them. It came with a rough paper copy of that PDF so thanks so much for finding it! You are awesome. There is also 2 separate smaller metal pieces (that might be the inner supports), but there is also 2 longer plastic pieces that aren't mentioned in the instructions, unless I have overlooked it. Can't figure them out.

I was curious about the ARB sliders and when I looked them up, bingo instructions!

Having the inner braces is great, sliders without them are a no-no.

My sliders have a rubber gasket between them and the tub, which is nice, keeps the tub from getting scratched to hell.

So irritated! Since my rocker guards were an unexpected unscheduled purchase for my “toy” (as my groom would call it) he feels as if I need some reason to have them. With it being the first of the year I of course set exercise and weight loss goals for myself. He is now trying to use my excitement of wanting to put these as motivation for me to meet a weight loss mile stone. @#$%&! We shall see who wins this war.

Now that I vented…I read through the installation steps and it seems time consuming but not bad. The diagrams make is seem as if the front seats need to be removed but doesn’t mention it? Is there enough room to put the interior brackets without having to remove the seats? Also curious as to why I have to remove the back 2 fender flare bolts if it’s supposed to fit between them. If it would ever stop raining and my other half would take a weekend trip somewhere I could attempt to start on this!

I didn't have to remove the seats when I did my Rokmens, the room was snug when doing the internal bracing but manageable. I'm willing to bet yours are the same.

If you haven't ventured over to, or even seen it, we have a Fitness and Nutrition area too. I use it for self motivation.

Yep me too, but I'm not a gym rat. LOL. Before and after pics of ourselves are not as easy to come by as before and after pics of our Jeeps, nor are they required, thankfully. LOL.

Realizing I worked over 50 hours last week and again this week, I convinced him that I have more than paid for those rocker guards. Needless to say...I will hopefully be putting them on this weekend. I w.i.n.
