JK 2dr Rock Slider Time

I'm changing things up. I need some rock sliders that are going to protect my body and hold up to some moderatly heavy abuse. I'm not an extreme wheeler, but I want to protect the body of my Jeep. I'd also like the options of having long arms one day, so I think I'm stuck a body mount solution.

So far these are the choices I've found. Please weigh in and add your suggestion:

- Smittybilt XRC - don't laugh... a buddy beats on his pretty hard and these are holding up!
- Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers - body mount
- Rock Hard 4x4 Patriot Series

I currently have PSC rocker armor and that's going to stay.

Look at Pure Jeep as well. Great sliders. They fit very tight to the body and mount to the frame. Drilling required. Gotta expect that if you want strength though.

I'm pretty sure I'm going with the body mounted Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers. I like the clearance and have yet to hear about them bending into the body.

A buddy has those on his JKU. He likes them and they fit well. They look good and are strong but I think my Pure Jeep sliders are stronger. But I'm biased as well. Lol. If I may suggest, invest in a zert-nut tool if you don't have one already. It will make install must quicker and easier. The little tool Poison Spyder gives you is painful to use. Lol.

No nutserts needed with the Rocker Knockers.. they are attached to the pinch seam and bottom of the body.

Im currently using the smittybuilt sliders, and yes, they are best to hell, but unlike the 4 door sliders, these don't use pinchweld seams to mount.

They have protected the body well and kept on serving. However after 3 years of punishment, I'll be doing RPM Fab weld on sliders. Made in Tempe, AZ.

Just say no to anything that doesnt weld directly to the frame. I really like my VKS sliders, but there are a few others that are very similar.
