I called this guy last week about a set for my CJ5. They are frame mounted. He said they would ship in about a week. I haven't ordered them yet. I've got to get my folks to check and see how much of a body lift is on it. Overseas so I can't check myself. The guy I talked to was super friendly tho.
That's the cut to length and drill your own hole version, but they're available at 4wheel parts and other online places already made up.
BDO doesn't list a premade AL slider for the CJ, but it does have a steel version.
THey dont list them but I have BDO aluminum sliders on mine... give then or one of thier distributors a call directly..... they are light and good install with the exception that the second bolt hole lines up directly with a seam in the body.

Support your local MS foundation. You don't know how much this disease sucks until it affects someone you love.
Thanks Longboy, I like those TnTs, but they seem to cater to the tube flare conversions and stop at the firewall. Different than what I'm looking for right now. However, we do need to meet up for some trail time one day. I've had some time off lately and knocked out a number in Arapahoe and Roosevelt Monday and today.
Can't thank you all enough for chiming in and offering your experiences. I've decided to go with the AtoZs since they fit the criteria for what I want, the price is more than fair and Zach's reputation and participation on this forum goes a long way.
I've got some rust to fix first and I'll need to paint them, but when I finally get them on, I'll share pics and my experience.
If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?
So far, I'm very happy with my Rocky-Road rock rails. There is a more limited selection for Scramblers. I did not want a tube, or a bunch of stuff on it. These attach to the frame only, and are very low-profile. I think the square tube and bevel ends look great (for what I wanted).
I had looked at rock sliders for a while and decided that I would either build my own or get the Shrockworks. For time reasons, I ordered Shrockworks partly because of quality and I like the way they tie into the body mounts.
They said it would be about 60s day (so much for timely), and charged my card a day or two later.
I am hesitant to post, don't wish to run anyone down, and Shrockworks is a JF vender. But at the encouragement of a friend who though the truth should be known......
After 60 days, no sliders, and I would call back every 30 days to check on progress only to get they would be ready in about a month. After 6+ months, I was getting concerned, it was pass the time to get it taken off my card (with out writing reports etc). I was trying to see if they were having business difficulties and even went so far to get a friend who lives in Houston to go by and see if there was activity at their address.
I had been burnt by JCWhitney some years ago when they put my required pre paid order on back order then went re-organization bankrupt, never got a refund or the product (and will never do business with them again).
The last time I talked with Shrockworks, they wanted 28 more days. I ask instead for a refund of my charge AND TO THEIR CREDIT, received a refund to my charge card the next day.
Shrockworks seems to be more involved with Toyata, but while they have a quality product, do not have their controls in order. They may have a quality product, but if there is no product delivered there is no quality.
In the mean time, I almost have my homemade sliders done (thread to follow) that are lighter, more heavy duty, and far more less expensive.
Because by the time CJ7s were introduced, the CJ5s were nearing the end of their run. CJ5s tend to be older and are becoming more scarce, and they were not consistent in dimensions during their run. One size does NOT fit all for a CJ5.
CJ7s tend to be "newer" (admittedly a relative term) and are more popular because they have more room for "fluffier" people like me.
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
