We are talking about inboard towards the frame. Out at the edges you will hit obviously.

The Rokmen's are looking quite good. Side and underneath bolting, no body mount bolting, and a reasonable price.

I know....I've been able to hit pretty darn close to the frame where some sliders don't have any material....the lack of paint after wheeling tells me where I hung up. And judging by MC's pictures, they do offer some under-tub protection but don't get as far in as something like the Savvy sliders.

Ty, the Rokmen are nice. I'd just recommend using nutserts on the bottom instead of the plate they offer so that you don't pull the two walls of the tub together.

I'd still recommend A to Z if you're sticking with steel. Super stout and offer the most protection of any slider I've seen.

Not that there is anything wrong with Rokmen...

I mentioned the A to Z's a few pages back when you first asked about them... Mine are taking bit hits regularly and have been holding up very well.

Quick question about the A to Z. It has an upgrade for a body gasket. I'm guess it goes between the rocker and the body, and that I would want it?

I see absolutely no point in that upgrade.

What is the point? Cushion, keeps water/dirt out, seal?
