JCR Deluxe Sliders

http://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JKSld/JK-SL2-2D.html

Cant seem to find much, but does anyone have any first hand knowledge on these? I just traded my Unlimited for a 2dr, and am looking to replace the Rubi rails. On my 4dr I had the Ace rails, but they always seemed to hang too low. I like the fact that these dont seem to loose much clearance, but the fact that they mount to the body has me somewhat concerned. It appears that they also mount to the body mounts like the Ace rails.

We;ve had these on for about a year now. I really like the style and fit. Some will say the body mount is bad w a good impact hit, that will dmg the tub. But these are pretty beefy and do mount to the bolts under the tub as well. Typical Nutsert Install warnings of course, but after looking at all options. Style, Fit and Price are what led me to these.

Although I'm coming at this worth 0 experience, my gut tells me to stay away from these if you're going to use them as sliders... the rail is up way too high to be a slider rail, and I wouldn't trust the plate steel to withstand a decent drop. You might want to look at Poison Spyder if you're looking for body armor - at least those will let you keep the Rubi rails. If you want a slider, look at these: http://white-knuckleoffroad.com/jeepjk.htm. I'll be going with those this spring.

I have these on my 2 door and they have taken several hard hits. So hard that the tubing on both sides have caved in and I have some minor body damage cause the armor is stronger than the tub. For people who wheel like normal human beings these will be fine but for folks like myself Id recommend going with something weld on. I going to be cutting the tubing off of mine a leaving the armor bolted to the tub...and then i have some weld on sliders that will be burned into the framerails to go over the armor.

thanks for the info guys. I am not planning on being overly easy on them, so wrinkling the tub has me worried. I'd rather be confident that they were going to stand up than have it in the back of my mind on the trail. Although I really like the way these look I think I'll give the T&T adventure steps with boatsides at try. They are pretty much local to me so I could just pick up a set and save on shipping.

I am looking at doing these too. I like that they are higher and up out of the way more than a frame mounted slider.
Any one else have any feedback on them?

I've came down on mine hard twice that I can remember, I dented one of the tubes a bit. I've also though about cutting off the tube and building something weld on. Mine weren't bad for free, insurance covered then when a maxima smacked my front left tire, broke my axle tube and bent the rubi rail too.
