Here is the ultimate in side rocker panel protection. Currie "Rock Ribz" body protection are designed to give your rocker panels that extra protection from rocks and obstacles. The Ribz on these panels extend 3" outward from the body and are fabricated of 1.5" x .120" wall D.O.M. tubing and then welded to our 10 gauge rocker panel guard plates. Unlike other panels on the market, Currie "Rock Ribz" underbody protection extends all the way to the frame. Finished in a semi-gloss black and come complete with all mounting hardware. Fits 1997-2006 Jeep TJ models.
Price: $150.00 Pros: Bought these "used". Maximizes ground clearance as this unit is bolted through the tub. Has a 1/4" solid aluminum backer plate(s) that go inside the tub/passenger compartment that significantly increases the strength. Cons: In addition to the conventional grade 8 bolts, to complete the installation requires the use of several nut-certs. Though many folks like nut-certs, they can be a PIA to install, and to later service the installation. That said. I can't think of an alternative to the nut-certs. Recommended? Yes
Comments: Currie Enterprises make excellent products, and these older style rockers are no exception to that. They're heavy, durable protection that provide piece of mind for me. I bought mine used. The ext time around I'll look into aluminum because of the weight advantage.
Comments: Absolutely the best on the market since they have a 2nd tube that sticks out AWAY from the body to protect not only the rocker panels but the doors. Also make a great step for lifted Wranglers and a good lift point for Hi-Lift jacks. AWESOME!
