Smittybuilt XRC Rocker Guards

Does anyone have any pictures of these on their ride? How do you like them?

I have them on my TJ as well and i like them. Make sure that when you install them you have your doors on and closed. I installed mine with the doors off and when i put them back on the passenger side apparently got tweaked a little from jacking the jeep up. If i had it to do over again i would also loosen all of the body mount bolts at least a little bit i think that might have been my problem. But as far as the actual sliders go i like them and after a year they seem to be holding up well.

These are the style that I'm looking for and they are a great price but some of the guy's I work with have had some bad luck with some of the Smittybuilt products lining up properly.

I do not have the rocker guards.

I did buy a SmittyBuilt rear bumper and fwiw the holes did not line up properly. I hear this is not unusual. I like the welds and powder coating looks good. Too bad they were not a little better on their measurements.

You can see my gaurds in my profile picture... I love them. I dont do "serious" wheelin like some of these highly modified Jeeps, so they do the jobI need them to do by protecting against rocks, which they have done nicely so far.

you could go to ace hardware and get new bolts in stainless and either paint them black or leave 'em alone, either way you won't have to worry about rust anymore...

I had some felt padding that was sticky on one side, so I cut small pieces and put some padding on each corner, a couple pieces in the middle and a couple where the steel bends. It was an attempt to avoid scratching the piss out of the paint while I was fitting the sliders in place.
