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.

Price: $169.00
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 !

Pros: Sturdy, look good
Cons: PIA to put on
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the Smittybilt's based on profile, look, and cost. Don't get me wrong, I like them, but they were a PIA, and didn't always line up with factory holes.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Cheap, looks ok, seems tough
Cons: No instructions on how to mount with BL installed
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Box was mangled from Fed Ex. Powder coat on corners was chipped. Look beefy, have used them to jack up heep with a Hi-lift. Had to make different BL spacers where they mount to body mount because there is no way to put metal dome above the bl puck because tube for bolt wont fit through center of puck.

Price: $189.00
Pros: strong solid steel bars, attractive powder coating, great step, awesome protection.
Cons: reduced ground clearance by about 1-2", but it doesnt go below the transfer case, its not the lowest point. they are heavy, but they are steel(duh)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this so cheap because my rear bumper didnt fit right as it came in the box and smittybilt reduced the price. I would pay 300 for this set. was recently sandwiched on the freeway between a dodge nitro and a mercedes. it prevented any body damage. the powder coat was worn off, and my fender flares were damaged, but nothing on the metal or mirror. they are solid, and if you spend the time to install them correctly, you cannot go wrong. highly recommend, they are a great step too.

Pros: Looks great Solid
Cons: Difficult to install
Recommended? Yes

Comments: What should have been a very easy install ended up being an exercise in frustration because the front mount was just a hair too narrow. Some jack work fixed that and now install they look great..

Pros: Sturdy, heavy duty, looks great
Cons: bright yellow smittybilt logo in the middle
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got these on amazon, and they shipped for free and no tax (Im in CA.)

Went on pretty easy, just make sure you use a fairly new drill bit and the holes come easy. Followed others' advice of using floor jacks to hold them while drilling, made it really easy.

They look great and are a solid guard for my rocker panels. THey double as a step so now girls dont complain about getting in

Price: $299.00
Pros: Durable and Beefy!
Cons: Drivers side didn't fit very well. I had to grind down the front bracket to fit around the body mount
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The rocker rails seem very sturdy and durable. I had a fitment issue on the drivers side. I had to grind the forward bracket to fit around the front body mount. The passenger side went on smoothly. Also, the directions from smittybilt did not mention taking off the factory rocker rails. I had to figure that out on my own.
