My new Rockrail/Steps

I ordered these the other night. My wife wanted some form of step. Do you guys think these will work well on my 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon?

Yea, it looks like they'll work well.

Really the only downside I see to them is the clearance loss.

Other than that, I like them. They look nice.

I think they will work well, but you are going to loose some ground clearance. I can vouge for Shrockworks makes great sliders and you do not loose the ground clearance. Plus they are a little cheaper. Just my two cents. But congratulations!

For less then that you could have got the Jeeperman ones.

But those look like they should do you just fine.

Aren't you going about this a little backwards, research first, then buy
You might have an issue with the way they mount , use the search, but if the only mounting point is the body mount points you are going to have issues with the distribution of force if you hit them hard. If it is more just for looks and steps no worries. Another vote for Shrockworks.

I'm pretty sure they mount to the frame. Some sites say "body mounts" and some say "chassis mount." I will know tonight, they should be deliever by the time I get home from work. If they mount to the body I may have to break out the old welder and make me some brakets to mount them to the frame. From the looks of them I don't see how they could mount to the body. They look to heavy to be hanging from the side of the body.

Many attach to the side of the body and through the floor of the tub with backing plates to spread the impact over a larger area, it wasn't clear, kind of described it as the type that sandwiched between the body mounts. FWIW might want to consider a gasket that attaches to your rocker so you don't have metal on metal, some seal with silicone, my preference is the gasket, used the one from Tough Stuff, good product, good luck. http://www.toughstuffproducts.com/je...ker_guard.html

How is he going to lose clearance? They mount to the frame and are above the frame. this makes no sense.

B/c they are attaching to the frame and hang below the rocker panel. Where as the shrockworks mount to the body (rocker panel). Yes, the frame hangs lower, but those rock sliders can still get hung up easily compared to the body mounted rock sliders.

I have the Jeeperman Slider bars. They are awesome, As for the loss of ground clearance... it is worth it. You will be able to drive over things with out worrying about messing up the body

Good discussion. I am glad to see the Shrockworks ones given thumbs up as I am pretty sure they will be replacing the nerf bars on my TJ soon.
