Barnett Rock Sliders?

Did a search and did not find anything on these. Looks like they are made with a Rubi slider. The website isn't very easy to navigate but, from what I can tell you can either,
A: buy a kit and weld it all together yourself.
B: buy just the steps and weld them on if you have Rubi sliders or,
C: buy a complete made up kit and bolt it on to the existing frame mounts.

Anyone know anything about them?

Wow, no one? Surprising, I figured someone wouldv'e had a look at these. They look real similar to Ace rails except they actually attach to the Rubi slider instead of going below it. I guess eliminating any loss of ground clearance on the sides. Plus, more protection from side impacts or the occasional door dings from parking lots. I gave them a call and of course they are backorderd for two months. Seems like a small or specialty type shop by the looks of the website. I talked with them about possibly sending them my Rubi sliders and having them attach the side tubes. He said they would do that for the price of the kit, no labor. Of course I would have to pay shipping to them.

does look like they reinforce the stock slider a little bit, would make a good step. but the fact that they mount to the rubi sliders and not the frame concerns me, ace and others attach to the frame because it is strong. the sheet metal and therefore the rubi step not so much, seen many rubi steps bent up causing body damage. not a true slider more of a pebble deflector

From what I can tell is that the Rubi slider is not needed with this kit (PART # BP-JKSLDR) but is with the other.

One of the underbody kits shows a Rubicon rail, the other doesn't. The kits attach differently.

That is really the answer I was looking for. I was torn because I already have sliders. I need a step. (wife is short ) So, what you're saying is that Ace sliders and others, that have a step, are not only better sliders than the stock Rubi's but I will get the step I need too. It's about the same price...

yes ACE is not only a great step, but a slider that will actually hold some weight. they should have no problem holding the weight of your entire jk, ive seen them hold a four door on a rock no problem.
