If you're not going to get corners, you just need the mounting plates and the flares. As for the rockers it doesn't really matter which set you get. If you do end up running metalcloak corners, then by all means get their sliders, as they'll integrate easily. If however you decide on going with someone else's corners in my case I'm going with the savvy AL corners, and I'll also run their rockers. I'll just need to buy their generic flare adapter kit. http://www.metalcloak.com/Generic-Co...-p/2910-al.htm Build thread sounds good so far. Don't forget some sort of speedo correction.
I keep flip-flopping between guards or not. Thus the mixup in part #s. I have a build thread setup and going with updates as I get things in.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions!

Why are you going with Savvy btw?

The reason I'm going with Savvy corners vs. Metalcloak is compound.

1. Savvy corners are about $100 cheaper before rebates and discounts.

2. Savvy has full corner guards as in they fill in that little triangle shape the Metalcloak ones leave out by the door latch. It's been demonstrated several times on here, and in my personal experience that this is a spot you want protected.

3. Savvy corners are complete under the tailgate hinge. So in the case that you decide to run a CJ or drop down tailgate you can without the tub side hinge mounts being cut out. In the case of running an Exogate which is my plan, my chances are better for minimal modification. If I were to run the metalcloaks I would either have to fill in the hinge area, or grind the corner material away to make room for the Exogate hinges.

4. If you decide to add the MC flares later on, you can get MC's generic flare mount kit for $100, so for my end goal, they'll cost the same, protect more surface area, and work a bit more easily (considering the exogate/compatibility with their sliders).

The reason I'm going with Savvy sliders is because since I'm not going with MC corners for the reasons above, I won't benefit any from their integrated system. Also I like the aluminum offerings, and MC isn't offering aluminum rockers currently.

Great response! I'll look closer at the details you pointed out. Thanks!
