Sent Jason a pm last night. Waiting to hearback. But I did google their site and found them. Looks like 300 and change for a set for the 2 door for the bolt on ones. They look nice.

Now to drop hints for xmas to the wife Leaving the various catalogs around the house with sticky notes on pages and highlighted items

I was sold on these until I started to hear all the issues guys were having with the little retaining ring within the bolt hole on the 2012 through current MY Wranglers. It seems to be a growing trend of guys having to cut into their bodies to fish out that ring or replace the body mount bolt nut due to it breaking loose while installing the ACE sliders. I am ready to pull the trigger on these but the idea of a 50/50 chance of having to cut into the body of my new Jeep is causing me to look at other options. I have also seen some threads where guys are stating the body mount bolts are too short to add on these rails safely. Is there validity to these stories?

On my '12 I loosened the bolts with a breaker bar then zipped them out and back in with my impact. I then final tightened them by hand as well. No issues. Half hour job including grinding the washers.

I removed and installed each bolt by hand. I did use a grinder to dress the washers. I didn't have any problems except that 2 of the 4 bolts didn't want to come out without a bit of pressure from a lever [big screw driver] prying it down/out after it was fully loose.

I tested each side by standing on it after installation.

I'd buy them again.

Fully satisfied.

So Fedx says they delivers my new steps today. Cannot wait to get home and have a look. I want to get them on the truck before wife comes home tomorrow to see if she notices
She wont care but she does not pay attention to things like that. If not then bumpers or wheels next

I so badly want to get these Ace rock sliders. Christmas is just around the corner, time to leave colored Post-It notes on catalogs around the home. LOL!
Maybe I'll change my Safari home page to a page with the Ace rock sliders, just in case the wife needs to use my lap top.

They weren't cheap, but worth every penny in my book. They ship in RAW steel so you'll need to have them sandblasted and powder coated once you get them. They turned out NICE though! Took my buddy and I about a day to install (we went slow and drank beer).
How do those do when it's icy/snowy? I'm looking for side steps and so far the only ones I've seen that have a grip that would stand a chance in icy conditions. I've slipped a few times getting in and out of helicopters because of the type of railing on them. In CO, as in BC I imagine, snow is inevitable and I don't wanna bust my A$$ getting in and out of my new JKU.

They are intended to push your jeep off trees, rocks etc. Ace probably not good choice for step up. I have seen some with builtin steps. Smitty Built was one, seen others too. Mine are to protect Jeep.
