NO drill rocker guards

I want to add some rocker guards but not to interested in drilling holes in the side of my jeep. Anyone know of metal rocker guards that either use the existing holes from the mini flare and/or bolt under the body possibly? Thanks

If you actually put the guards to use, the tub will be dented. It's just not feasible. Rocker guards protect the tub much more than drilling a few holes will "harm" it. Besides, once you bolt up rocker guards, you'll always have rocker guards. There's no reason to be afraid of some drilling.

OlllllllO

It's either drill, or weld big sliders to the frame, like what I have.

Drill or use duct tape. At least when the duct tape fails to protect your rockers, you can use it to 1,000,000 other things.

There aren't magic rockers - they'll have to bolt or weld on.

I put on Body Armor Rock Crawler side guards and they didn't require drilling. They act as a step and mount into the body mounts. I didn't care whether they were no-drill, I just liked them and the price (and they've gone down in price since I bought mine). I also have some diamond plate rocker guards. I like them both.

If you wheel, dont get the ones that just use your existing body mount bolts. They will deflect off rocks in hard impacts, and damage your tub. I had to get the body mount style sliders to cover the damage from the no drill style.

Mine were stupid simple to install and did not require drilling or welding to mount. They are not tub mounted as I needed a functional step for my wife and kids (at the time). They are very stout and adequately protect the side of my Jeep, I even use them as a pivot point when called for.

How are yours connected? Just curious because I have the same kind of thing (pictured above) but mine are welded to the frame.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

They clamp on to the frame, similar to the Jeeperman design.

The asshat that owned my Jeep before me did this. The frame repair was a pain and knowing what I know now, I would have passed and found a different Jeep. Who welds crap below the body mounts...
