Rock slider recommendations?

Looking for a quality product that features minimal reduction to existing vehicle clearance. TIA.

I think most of the sliders hug the rockers pretty closely. Your other option is actually cutting the rocker and doing some 2x6 box tubing. There are a few examples and threads here on that mod. You can also hit up hk offroad for their glissade sliders which also require you to cut your rockers. Hk isn't currently taking orders right now though

Bump.

I'm looking to buy some sliders as well.
I'm tracking the JCR sliders and HK Offroad is currently developing new sliders.

What else is there on the market?

@UncleWoody
Mind posting some more pictures of yours?

Kevinsoffroad.com still has some of their WJ sliders:

JCR is excellent too. I carry JCR if anyone is interested in a set. Kevin's are available in bare steel only. JCR is available powdercoated.

Find someone local to fab some. WJ accessories are stupid expensive from most these shops IMHO. I was quoted about $300 to fab mine.

For the basic box of steel without the rail, add that part in and now it's $450 plus. So your point is.......

That your "quote" was pretty damn close to that of reliable well documented and tested rock rails.
