Price: $300.00
Pros: Solidly built.
Cons: Bolt holes didn't exactly line up on installation.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Better protection but still maintains a good step to get up into the jeep, especially with a 3.25" lift and a 5' tall wife.

Price: $280.00
Pros: Looks good, easy to install, seems sturdy.
Cons: Specs may have been slightly off. Driver side took ~10 minutes to install. Passenger side need some convincing... took about 40 minutes.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I like the way these look, and were relatively easy to install. I've used a Hi-Lift jack on these, and worked perfectly. Also, I've rested on a large log with my passenger side rails. That log would have definitely bent up my body. Overall, I'd say a simple, yet effective solution for rock rails.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Very sturdy and functional and adds a unique look to the Jeep.
Cons: Mounting them requires help and patience.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got these because true rocker guards wouldn't work with my Sahara flares that extend onto the rocker area of my Jeep. I've had these installed for about 5 months and they seem to be a pretty good investment for $250.

They are very sturdy and the finish held up through a very nasty winter. I hope it continues to hold up. They work as a step, but they tuck up under the Jeep nicely, so they don't stick really far out like a true step. However, they are wide enough to prevent door dings in parking lots.

You are not going to lose much vertical clearance because these steps don't hang much lower than the frame if you mount them correctly, but you lose side clearance around your rocker area. I have mine mounted half an inch or so under the rocker panel, not 2 or 3 inches like you see in catalogs.

Mounting them is much easier with two people and a couple of good C-clamps. Mark your holes and then drill a series of pilot holes until you can put the bolts in. This makes the process much easier.

I'm happy with this armor. I haven't seen many Jeeps with it, so I like the uniqueness of it. I recommend it so far.
