Rocky Road Skid plates and sliders

Any feedback on this brand/company? They seem to be quite more affordable than Chief products but possibly of same quality.

I wouldn't be asking this question but their website is nothing short of horrible, looks like a high school project and it lacks pictures and information.

Some of their hard parts are good, but quality varies and customer support sparse. They are not in the same league, let alone ball park, as Chief. A forum search should provide plenty of reviews.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

I added a set of Rocky Road Outfitters Kicker Rock Sliders.
This is their 2011-2021, WK2, Full Length Rock Slider kit.

It was actually a very easy kit to install.

Their website is garbage, their products are not.

This is the 2011-2021, WK2, Tire-2-Tire Kicker Sliders. I paid $899.00 + $80.00 for shipping = $979.00 to the door.

I installed them myself, I would consider it an easy install, had it done in a couple hours.

Checking their website, they went up a little bit. $949.00 now plus shipping.

And they are Jack Worthy.

With all of the Chief Products Under armor and the Rocky-Road Outfitter Sliders, and other bolt-on accessories, this Trailhawk weighs in at 5920 pounds.

There's a thread in the forum help section that basically explains why some photos appear to be rotated when posted. It is something about cameras/phones not using standard rotate, orientation meta data. If you want to fix that, use your photo editing program to rotate the image as you want and export that as a new photo, then post.

That's the first time I have seen a hood vent on a WK2, looks cool, do you have a blower installed or some other tuning goodies that need extra cooling?
