Rock slider/ side protection

Hey Jeep people.
I’m New Years do have a new JL. My wife wants a step for entry, but I want a lot more from whatever I install:
Very little effect on ground clearance
Rugged equipment that I won’t have to replace later when the lift and tires go on.

I’d also like to cover the pinch welds.
I was looking at the Barricade Enhanced Rubi Rails, but they aren’t frame mounted. They cover the pinch weld nicely though.

I was also looking at the Barricade Tubular HD Rock Sliders. Nice frame mount, but no help with the pinch weld covering.

Any ideas for products that do both?

You don't have enough posts yet to enable editing.

The Smittybilt XRC sliders are supposed to be frame mounted as well as the Poison Spyder Rocker Knockere.

Fishbone off road has a set but they don't have a step and DV8 is supposed to have frame mounted rock sliders.

The enhanced Rubi rails are not frame mounted and if tested out will bend. I know that they cannot be used as a jack point.

The JK and JL's mount the same and I have a JK set that will be replaced by something that is frame mounted and able to be a jack point.

Haven't seen a body protection set with tubes like the old XRC for a TJ. The plastic steps are like a shovel in the sand.

I got these and theyíre pretty awesome. Solid as a rock and made in the USA. They mount on the pinch seam and the body mounts. You can stand on them and jump up and down and they donít move.

Hey thanks, that color was kind of a leap of faith for me. I had a black JK and didnít want black again and also I was buying used. When I narrowed down what I wanted in a used JL there was 1 black one and 2 orange ones in a 150 mile radius. I had to talk myself into the orange but being a UT Vol fan it wasnít hard. The lift and wheels/tires made me fall in love. I didnít want black wheels again either so I went with the silver.

I have LOD that are a frame mounted rock slider with a step. Also I bought Hammerhead pinch weld covers. Really like the look.

Nice rig. Those are close to what I’m looking for. Is the step easy to use? It looks a little tucked in.

The step is easy to step on and gives you enough for good footing to get in and out of. I also have a grab handle on the roll bar and makes for an easy in snd out with one foot on the step.

These are frame mounted and solid. I wanted something solid, high and tight to the body, but still provide a step to get in and out.

Theyíre not as tucked in as they look. Thatís what I like about them, they almost disappear from the side view but they have a pretty good area to step on.

This pic tells the tale:



Look how they appear and disappear in these pics:
