Price: $250.00
Pros: Looks nice and functional step
Cons: Passenger sided was a bear and had to be tweaked a bit to fit properly.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: the driver side went on smooth and easy, the passenger side seemed a little misaligned, I installed with some man handling and got it on, but a day later a horrible creaking noise arose, found the step was making contact with the body, removed step, modified the mounting holes and re installed, this gave me enough adjustment to fit properly.
after the initial issue, we have been very happy.

Price: $339.99
Pros: Looks Awesome, easy to install, has a step
Cons: Heavy
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Ordered online from Morris 4x4, reviews on the site warn that the rails do not line up correctly and that some grinding/cutting may be required. I did not have this problem. The rails are pretty heavy but I was able to install them myself in under an hour.
I found that lifting the front end of the rail and resting it on top of my tool box, then getting one bolt started in the back and leaving it loose, I was easily able to line up the front end and get a bolt started. After that it was just a matter of starting of the last 2 bolts and tightening it down. They seem very sturdy and should provide excellent protection.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Again great value and built quality
Cons: heavy for shipping & install.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Again I found mine locally used from someone who got them new and never installed them before selling his jeep. And again a saved about $50 of the new price which is a deal already but also saved the expensive shipping cost & import fees. Great built quality and unbeatable value.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Very strong, can be used as a side step, relatively easy install.
Cons: low clearance(about as low as the frame) and they're heavy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I liked the idea of being able to use them as a side step as well. My wife(does) and children(will) use them quite often for entry/exit. They saved the tub and fenders in a "sandwich" accident on the freeway. i got sandwiched between a dodge nitro and mercedes, with NO tub or fender damage. the rocker guards took all of the force. just removed some of the powder coating.
Ive come down on them really hard a lot on rocks, and no damage yet. theyre very strong and well made.

Price: $165.00
Pros: Good fit fastened to the frame not just the body. 3/16" thick.
Cons: no step or rail but that was my choice.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: NOt too hard to install, had to break loose a couple of the body mount bolts. For some reason the driver's side went on like clockwork, the passenger side, it I could screw every step up I did, had to R&R it 3 times before I got it right. My faullt not the directions. Directions? Maybe I should have used them afterall!
Haven't been off road with them yet, but they've got to be better than the steps I tore off last month.

Pros: affordable including shipping, tax and custom fees to austria/europe
Cons: made in china :)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: as easy to install as all similar products. each rocker is bolted thru the side sheet metal and also clamped by wo bodymounts - the black finish of the rockers had no problem in the first winter although the streets in austria/europe are FULL with salt during the cold season !
