The baddest rockers on the market!

Got my RedRockFab rockers installed this week. Went to the trail to snap a couple photos. Took a couple of the RedRockFab front bumper as well. I have already had a chance to use both and they are rock solid.

I am happy as I could be with my choice for both. I am proud to rock these peicies of art. Check out the pics and tell me what you think.

-Enjoy!

Those look really great! I'm interested in the rockers. I've been shopping around a bit for some and those look like they may go to the top of the list.

How was the install? The pictures on their web site seem to show three bolts in the front mounting brackets but it looks like only one in the rear, though I can't tell for sure with the angle of the picture.

How do you place and hold the nuts on the inside of the frame?

never seen such an awesome mod broken in so quickly. doesnt even look like you had to abuse them...more like a mad scientist laughing insanely at his creation, screaming "ITS ALIVE!!!". Thats the mental image i got. To date, these are the toughest looking sliders ive seen. The natural finish on the skid portion...compliments the silver jeep as well.

They can make you one that is a step. The tophoop goes straight out, horizontal. I seen an unfinished pair in person. They are a wide step yet still a very capable rock rail....

Look in this thread, there is a pic of the step style rockers. Keep in mind it was only a test fitting, no finish and the skins were just sitting there..

Personnaly I was worried about how it would look. The natural finish looks so good on red, blue, green, every color really. I was not sure how it would look on silver. Turns out it looks REALLY nice and I am glad I went this route instead of just a standard tube slider

It was pretty simple. I am working on a write up now so that should be available soon. Basically you just need to drill 5 holes. Otherwise the instal is nothing more then turning bolts.

The 4 door may be a little different then the two door but I think overall it is the same. Basically, one bolt in the side of each Body mount bracket and on the bottom it uses factory bolts and holes. On the two door, I did need to drill one hole on the bottom, on the 4 door you may need more. Here is a picture of the bracket if this helps, you can see both holes in it.

Good question! They did think of that one and didn't leave us hangin to figure out ourselves, lol. Basically, it is just a wire welded to it. It is actually not to hard to get lined up as I thought it would be. Here is a pic from the outside. Basically, I just bent the witre to shape outside the rail, put it in through the hole till I saw it lined up properly and threaded the bolt. Pretty straightforward really

Thanks Scott for the additional install information and the pictures. I have the 2 door so your descriptions were just what I needed. I'll look forward to your writeup!

The ONLY reason! So, other than the step feature you're unhappy with the Shrockworks rails. Why?

I like those.

Those sliders look super beefy, my only concern would be the loss of clearance as they appear to stick out 3 to 4 inches from the body tub. I think I will stick with my original decision on the poly sliders. The RRF do look super sweet tho!

I also was gonna get the Poly sliders. I went back and forth. My thinking ended up being the opposite though. I oppted for these sliders so I can have a little body protection. Having them stick out little goes a long ways in keeping the body/doors off the rocks and dirt. You don't lose any clearence really. They only stick out a couple inches. if you had no sliders at all you would want to be at least that far away from a rock to keep from hitting it.

I do think the Poly ones would be nice if I still lived in Washington. I imagine they just slide right over roots and mud so nicely!
