Rocky Road Super Sliders

I've read the thread from Gramps about using the Rocky Road Patriot Lift Kit on his Compass. Has anyone done the same with the Super Slider rails yet?

I E-Mailed Rocky Road and got a quick response saying they had not tested this, but did say that there should be no problem as long as the frame rails under the rockers were the same.

As long as no one knows of a possible problem here, I think I just found the #1 item on my Birthday list (The Christmas list is already full )

I've been talking to Glenn on these too. I haven't had the opportunity to check them out that closely but I'm willing to bet that they are a bolt on. I'd be "shocked and amazed" if they weren't!

There are NO differences in the floor pans.

You'd probaly have to drill a few holes to mount some rock sliders. Is there any difference between the Compass and Patriot rocker panel? Because that would cause the sliders to be different as well.

They are different part numbers because now you're getting into "Body Moulding" but that doesn't mean that the attach points wouldn't be the same. Here are the diagrams from the parts manual and the shot of RR's Super Sliders. I'll try and get a shot of the comparable area on the Compass later today.
