Nice, the black looks good!

I hope you took care in where you put that grip tape. I didn't on my first rocker guards and the grip tape took the back of my leg off the first time I slid out over it without thinking about what I was doing first.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Fair point. Maybe the first one was a D- and the second maybe stepped up to a D+. Big believer in learning by doing, although when drilling this many holes in the side of your jeep you have to learn quickly.

Savvy advertisements in CRAWL mag!?

I'm waiting for this aluminum tummy tuck..... Any idea on a time frame, or shall I make my own? I want one badly!!! I also want corners, but am waiting until I do a rear stretch, and these sliders are on my to-do list as well. Back to the tummy tuck..... WHEN!????

Absolutely. The magazine is great and the folks involved with keeping it on your store shelf and in your mailbox are even better.

countersunk mounting screws would make them look more sleek.... is that what the production version has?

Yes, the production version have countersunk fasteners on the top row of the rockers. The bottom row can't be.

Another poser shot of my Jeep with rock sliders.


Not really rock slider country, I'm afraid, but maybe the supersmooth savviness underneath would help me to slide over instead of getting hung-up on a dune crest!


Starting to feel all warm and savvy inside...
