tj rock slider ?

who has tj rock sliders that bolt to the body?
are they for looks or can you jack the jeep up or take a good hit from a rock?
are they tied to the frame?
how thick are they?
how tall are they?
can you post some pictures?
I just bought an 01 tj and I want to make some armour.

Wow 3/8's is pretty damn thick for sliders.

I think you'll find that most manufactured sliders are made from 3/16"s or 1/4".

Yeah 1/4 would be more than good enough,

My 2000 TJ has had Sun Performance sliders from day 1. 9 years later, they still take as much abuse as I can throw at them. Full hits. rock pivots, 4 foot drops, jacking the rig up, they take it all.

A to Z rockers on my LJ are 3/16 with slider tube. Go up almost to the door. No frame tie in. Handle pivots, drops and jacking just fine.


I have no idea how that rock got up there.

My Warn rock sliders work great. Bolted to the tub. I won't ever change them and worth every penny. Cheap $200 plus dollars when I bought them.
