Next step for Misty is to decide what brand of rockers to put on. I want something that won't cause me to lose any clearance, and also desire a step for a certain 5'3" special person. I like the design of the JCR sliders..

..but I really don't like the installation procedure. I want something that will line up with the factory Rubicon rocker panel mounting holes.

Anyone know of anything like that?


I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

Sticking with those mounting holes limits your options by a lot. Also, the JCR sliders don't offer too much coverage underneath. Checkout AtoZ fab, Rokmen, or Savvy for much better coverage underneath.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Thanks, I like the AtoZ rockers thus far.

I did too, until I found out they sandwich the floorboards with bolts and nuts underneath. If Rokmen uses nutserts underneath, I'm going with them.

Ordered! Now I have to wait for a nice weekend to get this stuff installed. I'm pretty busy with my binging for the next few weekends though...

It's a one-banana job; you'll finish it in an hour unless you stop for recess.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I just skimmed through your build to you installing the rockers, seems like a pretty straight forward install (with the instructions) I guess I really just have to decide between the Rokmen and AtoZ. I'm planning on the Rokmen front bumper so I may go with Rokmen as well. Just gotta see if they're worth the extra hundo..

An hour for just the MML, but I plan on installing that, the Body Lift, new Chevy fuel hose (common LJ fix), and have some Polk speakers to install as well. I'll probably have some other stuff by the time I get around to working on her as well

A to Z sliders here. Got mine for a steal ($55 on eBay, never installed) for the WW2WW version. Installation was a piece of cake and they have done a phenomenal job so far. Zach, who owns A to Z is a stand up guy and sent me a free box of hardware even though I didn't buy them directly from him. Truly a quality product that I have no issue recommending!

Well, ordered the bumper and steering skid. AtoZ was closed, so I'll have to catch up with him tomorrow.
