Rock Sliders w/side tubes

I have run Warn rocksliders on my YJ and I must say they have taken a beating and never let me down. I now need to get a set for my TJ I am building. I like the idea of the added tubes you can now get. Some say they are also a step, but I think they are really too high to work very well as a step I also heard from one jeeper that he did not care for the tube because ever time he gets out he rubes his leg on them and ends up with dirt all over because they stick out.

I am also looking to go wheel to wheel and not flare to flare as I may end up with tube fenders down the road. So please post your pictures or comments about your sliders.

Thanks

I run wheel well to wheel well A to Z fabrication rocker guards with the tube. I couldn't be happier with them and they take a beating.

Those look like they have the built in step, is it functional or is it really to high to use ?? I like the look of them

Anything lower than that is a clearance hindrance, if you want a step that low, just instal some OEM steps.

I am making a removable step, just wondering if that one is usable

I couldn't be happier with my Rokmen sliders. They work as a step too. They are WW2WW too.

I have the rockhard 4x4 sliders with tubes and I use them as a foot hangout while cruising with the doors off and also as a step for when I take my top off or load the kayak on the jeep.

Do you have any pics? I was thinking about those as well. They can be used with my 1" bl without mods, relatively cheap, and come powdercoated

I guess that's my answer they are too high to actually be used as a step to get into the jeep. Which is fine

Sliders with tubes are not too high to use as steps....they are a good five inches lower than stepping over and into the tub.

If you want a low entry/step....don't lift it.

My wife and kids use the Rokmen sliders as steps all the time.....as do I.

On a previous rig I used Carolina rockshop ones, they were awesome, and had coverage both wheel well to wheelwell and under the rockers. They are good when you need to get up high on your jeep, but none that I have seen work well as an aid to get into the vehicle. The tubes/step sit at almost the exact same height as the floor board. so unless you just can't get your foot that extra inch or two over the rocker area you won't find them real helpful.

I'm working on a design that will let you pin the bar up in a typical position or let you pin it down several inches below rocker height for use as a step. IDK why no one else has thought of that. You'd think it would have been down by now with the amount of people I see hauling step stools or bolting chains to the rocker guards.

I prefer the tubes- both form and function. I have the 3/16 trail gear sliders... They have a nice amount of overhang, never get snagged and have a couple of supports. Welds are good and price is right!
