Price: $220.00
Pros: Unique mounting design means no drilling into tub. Works great as a step unlike some tub mounted rails. Easy to remove for paint touch up.
Cons: The version of the rails I bought came with inferior/poor quality outer tubes that bend way too easily.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I like the way these rails mount up and work as a step. The first version I got was manufactured in China using too thin of an outer tube without the manufacturer's knowledge or approval. After only a few trail rides the outer tube began denting easily with only mild to moderate rock crawling, not doing anything extreme or crazy.

After a few phone calls and months of waiting, I received a beefier set of rails in the mail at no charge. The new beefier ones are similar to the older version of these rails and hold up much better to abuse. Body Armor gets a thumbs up since their customer service stepped up and handled this well.

I would recommend these rails if you don't want to drill 15 or 20 holes in your tub to install a body mounted set of rocker armor. Just make sure you don't happen to get the defective rails.

Here's pic of the defective set after some wheelin'.

Price: $219.00
Pros: great looking and performing, super easy to install
Cons: none so far, maybe that they only mount to body mounts
Recommended? Yes

Comments: we installed these along with smittybilt src front and rear bumpers and they match! the install was super easy, right to the body-to-frame mounts. no squeaking or bending, great step for getting in and out, get 'em when 4 wheel parts or 4wd have their 20% off sales or when body armor does their annual 40% off sale

Price: $229.00
Pros: Look fantastic, heavy construction and finish. Extend the entire length of the rocker and bolt to the frame
Cons: If installed with just existing hardware, they will squeak after a few months. This can be corrected by adding washers
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The ones I purchase have a flat/matte textured coating. They fit perfectly with no adjustments. Simply remove 3 bolts that hold the body to the frame on each side and slide the rocker guards into place. They fit within the frame rails. Biggest challenge was getting the bottom rubber mount in the right location so it could be bolted back together. I would highly recommend that you go ahead and add 2 3/4 inch diameter, 1/8 thick flat washers between the side guards and the bottom rubber mount. This will cause the rubber mount to compress more after you torque the bolts back down to 20pounds. It will also cause the rails to be 1/4 inch lower (separated from the rocker) but also prevent the rails from making contact with the frame which is where the squeaking comes from.

Other than this minor adjustment - i love them. My passengers REALLY love them, especially those getting into the back seat because they have something to step on when getting in and out.

I would buy them again and recommend them to everyone.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Nice step for my shorter friends, strong and sturdy, seems durable, nice powdercoating, no drilling
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just bought these through body armor and bought a scratch and dent for 150 that came in PERFECT condition! I was able to install by myself and I definitely appreciated not having to drill my frame so that it will be easy to change down the road with no holes left behind. Seems like it would be a decent spot to use a hilift jack if need be, but I would do it slowly at first just to check. Overall, for 150 bucks I have no complaints and they seem great so far!

Edit: now that I have had these for a while I can say that I still love them, and it's easy to clean in between the guards and the body. I can't wait to get into some mud and get a real test.

Price: $225.00
Pros: No drilling. Have a low step for people that use them.
Cons: Not really strong because it mounts to 3 body mount bolts. Its fine for me because I don't slam down on them.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought these because they do not require drilling into the tub, so I could swap out later to a different rocker if needed. They have a full step that is about 3 inches lower than a tub mounted rocker, because it mount on the body mounts.

Comments: Came with the Jeep, but they have held up very well. Very sturdy, and I have them bolted, not welded, to the frame. They do not sag or wobble, and provide a great foot step for my 6" lifted Jeep.

Comments: Saved stock rocker guard trim with this body outriger mounting method. I can jack up the Jeep with a High Lift. I will update after Rubicon trip.
Update: Great product. Saved the rockers on our TJ's and work as pivot points on rocks. I scratched the paint
Applied 3M No Skid tape to the tube so I wouldn't fall on my radicatudiator!

Body Armor Rockcrawler Side Guards
Price: $300.00
Pros: Easy to install, good coverage
Cons: Use the body mount bolts to mount
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These are a good set of starter rockers but don't look good if you have a body lift. I don't like that the rockers attach using the body mount bolts and that they do reduce the side clearance. That said, these were the first rockers I purchased for my LJ and they did their job. I don't use these rockers since I installed a body lift.

Pros: Nice and heavy, easy installation and tire to tire coverage

Comments: Got these from Quadratec on the buy the rear swing away get the rockers free.
Nice strong piece that has already taken a hit (stupid road side water hole ) and stood up like a champ. These don't come with the black diamond skid sides like in the picture and I would recommend getting some of those so you don't kick up your tube. I recommend!
