Pros: Heavy duty construction, nice step for short folks
Cons: These are flare to flare rocker guards
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I wanted a rocker guard that had the step built in rather than having a step made from a piece of pipe. Check out this thread for more information about rockers in general: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=134553
Also, this rocker has a forty-five degree angle built-in that would help deflect impacts away from the body.

My only issue is that these are flare to flare rocker guards but I knew that before I purchased them. That said, I have no idea how I would have notched my fender flares (they are 7" flares) to allow a wheel well to wheel well guard. I guess my grinder would have been busy.

The installation was easy but having some help would make it go faster. These guards are heavy. I did have to drill several holes in the body but once you've drilled one hole, what's nine more.

The step is three inches wide but it can get slick when wet. I'm looking for some skateboard anti-skid tape so whatever woman in a mini-skirt thats trying to get into my LJ doesn't doesn't fall off the guard and land on her rear.

I haven't been offroad with these rockers but I will provide an update when I do.

Update 12-25-07:

I've taken two major trips in the last year with these rockers installed and I'm very happy with them. I did put some exterior anti-slip tape (you can get it at Lowe's or Home Depot) on the steps so the girlfriend (or me) doesn't slide off the step. The rockers have taken a few impacts with no damage other than some dings in the paint. I'm very happy with this item and would purchase it again.
