I installed these from Smitty without any major issues. http://www.quadratec.com/products/12057_1201_07.htm

These are solid and feel strong. I haven't laid them onto any rocks yet. So far I like them.

Not the ones I want but they probably bolt up the same way. Thanks.


These are the ones I've been looking at and again, I think they bolt up the same exact way, just different protection design.

FYI those have had fitment issues in the past. Search some forums. You may need to do some grinding.

I have body armor rails and I like both their looks and functionality as a step and a rock rail.

I LOVE Teraflex's sliders...they're a quarter of the weight (aluminum) of the ACE stuff. They're higher clearance, better looking, and fit like a glove. Work great for my 4'13" wife

I also bought mine from Jason at Krawl Offroad

Oh yeah, and they totaled a Nissan Versa

That's what I keep hearing but I can't find any details on WHERE the fitment and grinding needs to take place. Is it just the washers fitting in the boxes like ont he ACE versions or something more?

I'm thinking of getting these because the kids and wife are complaining after the lift. All I need these for is a step. Any problems with feet slipping on these? Last thing I need is to hear "my foot slides off".

I haven't had any issues with slipping other than when it gets covered in ice. My other half climbed in my jeep (4" lift and 37s) all the way through her pregnancy with no issues. I have seen where a couple people bought 3M textured tape to help with that, but I haven't really seen problems with people complaining about that. The Ace rails are powdercoated, so they do have some texture to them.

Very happy with the ace bolt on sliders. I bought them from Jason at krawl. They were here quick and the price was the best I could find. When i first installed them I wasn't thrilled with the pinch seem being visable so I added some rubicon slider take offs I got from a local jeep dealer for $130.

Not the best pic for seeing the sliders. Let me know if you want a closer one.

Both my kids ages 5 and 8 can get in easily and these things can take some abuse.

I run Ace sliders on my TJ. Girlfriend was quite grateful when I put them on. I've never slipped using them, but I'm sure I will now
