Overland Rock Sliders worth a damn?

Hey all, I'm pretty new here and so is my 2004 WJ Overland(at least to me). I'm on a tight budget and the list of toys I want is long(BB, 31" tires, intake, exhaust, and the like). I was just wondering if the stock Overland rock sliders are worth a damn? It would help my budget out if I didn't have to worry about buying aftermarket sliders, at least for a while. I don't plan on doing any intense rock crawling as this is my daily driver but I'd like to know if they'll be able to save my body at all if it ever should come to that. Other than the plastic end caps they seem pretty stout, steel and quite solid from my initial inspection of them. Anyone have any experience with these actually taking any hits or have an opinion on the matter? I know there are plenty of those around. I apologize in advance if this is a repeat thread, I'm just getting the hang of the forum. What a wealth of knowledge BTW, invaluable! I'll throw a pic up later today, just cuz I'm a sucker for visuals! Thanks

i haven't heard any complaints but i don't believe they are as hard core as aftermarket offroad equipment. they should last for you.

i saw a stock overland at the local jeep dealership a few years ago and i remember seeing the stock rails completely bent up. like a cresent, i dont know what the situation was at all but it didnt look like they could handle to much.

from what i have read and heard from people that i have talked to about them is they are ok if you nto going off roading crazy and just need something to fall on in case you slip or missing something should be ok.

if your not going on rocks and just going to drive in the woods and in water should be good for them.

can post them for sale but i see a few now and then and they dont sell fast

just i would check to see if their any rust under then or behind that would make them weaker

I'm not planning on any extreme rock crawling like I said. I figure they wouldnt take a thrashing or anything. Being hollow and if I'm right, mounted only on either end, they could only put up with so much. I guess I kinda answered my own question, it all depends on what I throw at them. Just wondered if anyone had any personal experience of these being sturdy looking tinfoil or the only solid piece on the rig.

Wjjeeps.com, if you want information about them. If you wanna buy them, go to a junkyard.
