Rubi sliders aren't that great, he'd be better off with the crown sliders.

Hit them on any rocks yet? Rubi sliders work about as well as those plastic sahara sliders he already has in this neck of the woods.

Another thing to consider is that those sahara panels have probably rubbed through the paint some over the years. You need a tall rock slider to cover that area, rubi sliders are only half that height.

Never seen a plastic slider. No your looking in the wrong place for rocks. But I have hit plenty of stumps and fallen trees. I'm just saying there better then nothing

I'll look into it. I took one off before and it didn't look too bad, just dirty. Who knows about the other though.

Look at his rocker panels and you'll see some. Looking in the wrong place for rocks? They are called trails, rocks happen. If he is going to spend money, he should spend it only once. Get some real sliders the first time and be done with it.

Its not guaranteed, just something to keep in mind. I just know that Ive taken flares off of newer TJs and the paint is worn through under the dirt.

Just ordered the suspension guys. 2" BDS coils, fox 2.0 shocks. Had to contact quadratec for the free shipping, so my 1.25" jks body lift and 1" M.O.R.E. motor mount lift will take a little longer unless it ships fast. Depends on when Joe replies. Won't be too long!
