Body Armor brand for JK?

I wrote some tech articles for Body Armor stuff for Ford truck applications in the past, and know that while a TON of their stuff is really not good looking (in my eyes) AT ALL, I've been toying with their sliders. I originally ordered the Poison Spyder ones, but have since cancelled my order because of wait time.

Anyone have any experience with BA stuff for the JK (sliders especially)?

Good call. I just left them a message for pricing and availability. I'd have to get the silver painted/coated though. But I do love the look.

Is that the route you chose Vegas? What are you doing color wise? Red and black? Is the install straight bolt on?
