Pure Jeep Rocker Guards

Anyone run these on their TJ? Do they bolt to the body mounts as well as the body? Isn't that the best design? Just curious and please post pics

Beings there website only shows for 07 to present JKs. Sorry.... found them. My bad. I would say no because they don't show coverage from wheel well to wheel well.You want those extra inches of coverage.

You don't have to trim anything! They slide behind your flares.If your going to spend that much money on armor you might as well get the best coverage!

a to z doesn't bolt to the frame/body mounts...isn't that what i want to protect the underside a bit as well or what?

and the savvy ones? whats the advantage?

I know everyone raves about savvy but is the loss in weight worth the thing? and can you get them with steps built into them like a to z or poison spyder and such?

what's so funny about that?

some of us want functionality as well as everyday use, not just for off road abuse.

and if it doesn't bolt to the frame, then that sheet metal of the body will become bashed up over time and many hits...

So you want your body mounted rocker guards to tie into the frame?

Everyone on here is on the most trying to help you out.You just need to do some research on the best way of rocker guard mounting. These are also excellent guards. http://www.genright.com/category.aspx?categoryID=143

and because the body mounted sliders are too high to be used as a realistic step...

unforunately there isn't a best of both worlds here. either you have a crappy rocker with loss in ground clearance, or a crappy step with good ground clearance.

how do you figure? a frame mounted rocker can bend and smash into the tub. a body mounted rocker is already on the tub, where it distributes forces widely across all the body mounts...

Good reading on the subject:

if you're really worried about the body, try this: Rokmen - Slider Reinforcement

1) Where does it say PUREJEEP rocker guards are mounted to the frame? Because nothing would make a set of rocker guards WORSE than having the side mounted to the tub (like the picture on the site shows) and the bottom mounted to the frame. First time you'd do some flexing something would rip.

2) If you go to the PUREJEEP site they only sell JK rocker guards. So whatever 4WD.com is selling is either a) another product rebranded as PUREJEEP, b) the remnants of a discontinued line, or c) an untried and brand new product. Either way, pass pass pass.

3) You should get your rockers bare steel and save $80-$90 because the rockers flex so the powdercoat will crack and peel anyway. It's a lot cheaper to spray them down with some black Rustoleum.

Having said all that, I run the W2W version of these and couldn't be happier Jeep® '97-'06 Wrangler TJ Rocker Guards :: Jeep Rocker Guards :: AtoZ Fabrication
