Rubicon rocker guards would have helped.

Sliders...hmmm...thought about buying Polecat's a couple years ago but then decided not to cause I didn't want to drill the holes for them and then drill new holes when I eventually armor the whole jeep up (kinda a moot point now with the the rockers all banged to hell). I was told by the wife the other day to buy some sliders but I want keep everything the same brand, so now I need to figure out what level I want to take the jeep to. It does pretty well as is, so keep it on 35s, use the HP30 I have laying around, regear, lock it up and add some armor and still have a nice DD? Highlined with some 37 Rockers and Spidertrax 9s or JK 44s and still somewhat DDable? Or go all out with tons and 40/42s with some major sawzall action and not much of a DD anymore? I do like the Genright mini boat side rockers....

Thanks, had a YJ and was considering a new jeep cause of my son being born. Saw this one in the newspaper while I was at work, was exactly what I wanted and went and bought it the next day.
