Hmm interesting. I have a JCR set on order directly from them, been waiting 2 months so far (was told 2-3). Hoping that issue doesn’t carry through

Rocky Road is popular with the trucks and they also make them for the Jeep’s. They are the real deal and will fully support the weight of the vehicle.

Rock hard 4x4 is another good company. I think 3 weeks is what they are sitting at for slider orders. I only have one of their bumpers, I haven't ordered the sliders from them yet.

Aluminum rock sliders? Will they support the weight of the vehicle or will they crumple?

Why does everyone associate aluminum with foil or cans?

Without a doubt they are the best designed and strongest sliders available. They have a 3-piece design, two pieces of thick 6061 HD aluminum to sandwich the tub with a HEAVY steel slider that is mounted to the outer aluminum base.

It was designed to survive rock crawling in Johnson Valley, it holds up to anything. I've had them on both of my TJs.

This is my install on my previous TJ...

When you have a choice, buy American made.

Exactly. If anyone saw some of the massive impacts my Savvy aluminum gas tank skidplate has survived they'd stop associating 6061 aluminum with beer cans and their grandfather's aluminum screen door. Same with my Savvy aluminum/steel rockers.

I’ve only seen rock sliders made out of steel until now. I’ve also seen some rock sliders on a couple Jeep’s that where rock sliders in name alone. They would bend easy. So when I saw aluminum I just asked to find out if they were the real deal or not. I would think aluminum ones would be lighter in weight than the steel versions; that would be good on a vehicle where less is more.

I ordered a set from ARES Fabrication for my XJ..... I ordered them on July 14 and they arrive tomorrow, would been quicker without the powder coating/

https://aresfabrication.com/shop/evo...cker-armor-tj/

Description

Ares Fabrication is very proud of this item. What ever you call them; armor rockers, side rails, nurf bar, rock sliders you need them. Made from laser cut 3/16 steel and press broke into shape. Side is bent at two points. One at 60*and the other is 30*. This gives it a “boat side” appearance With ount any cutting of the body. Also protects the body mounts better. Two for one. Attaches to body only. No need to try and loosen (and probably break) rusty body mounts. Uses supplied countersunk hardware and special hardware underneath. Tubing is 1 3/4 DOM tubing for superior strength. Comes in bare steel. Free Shipping to the lower 48 states.
