Rock slider suggestions

In the process of protecting my TJ and would like to get input on some Rock sliders for under my rocker panels. I already have diamond plate rocker panels so I do not want the type that incorporates the panels and sliders.

I have a 4" lift and 1 1/4 BL also so I want to be able to use it as a step for the wife so it needs to stick out a little. Also do not want to drill into the tub if i can help it. Toughness and functionality primary concern. Appreciate your feedback.

Looks to me like all, or most, of the good companies out there are only making body-mounted. A to Z Fabrication, for example, makes nice rails but they are body mounted.

My advice would be to remove the diamond plate and go from there.

To give you some feedback directly answering your question, I'd go custom. That way whoever welds them up for you can keep them high, to go with your body lift, otherwise a bolt-on frame mounted rail would be 1 and 1/4" farther apart from the tub than it was meant to be.
