Put the stock Rubi's on my 08. I like the flush fit. They're built to do the job. When the box arrived the weight on the packing slip was over 70 lbs. Was surprised at the thickness of em.

I've been very happy with my river raiders. They have held up great and Kenny's customer service is top notch.

No problems with my Smittybilts.

I've reseted the weight of my Jeep on each side several times. No issues.

I have the Rugged Ridge RRC Side Armor Guards, they are nice and seem to support the weight well. But I do get some crazy squeaking from them, I think it is the washer on the body mount vibrating on the inside of the tube even though everything is torqued to spec still. Since its cold out and everything is expanded it seems to fix itself above 38 F and of course when wet and lubricated with silicone spray. I am going to take them off and try turning them down a 1/16" and see what happens then.

Pure Jeep I think has a lot of extras the other guys don't, besides unbelievably stout material from plate steel, the boat sliders/smooth sides cover the sides and under neath and won't get hung up on rocks like the tube ones. Great steps on the sides too for climbing in n out.

2009 Rubicon Unlimited, 4" Long Arm Rancho, 37"MT Baja M/T's, SRC Rear Bumper w/Tire Carrier, XRC Front Bumper, Mile Marker 9.5, Viper Alarm, PureJeep Rockers...PM to ask my opinions

If you need bomb-proof protection and quality and don't need a step, but could use a little more side protection than the stock Rubi sliders....Poly Performance is your huckleberry. Got 'em, love 'em.

??? Never had that happen to me. The only tube ones I could ever see getting hung up depend on how they bold underneath. I'm flush and have slid the entire length of my driver side slider with no hiccups.

x2 on River Raider. Great customer service and a solid set of rocker guards.

+1 for shrock.
Stout as hell, they have been thoroughly abused and they show it, but only on the powdercoat. No dents and they have taken some HARD hits. I routinely use them to pivit on trees, pivot on rocks, stop downward acceleration, and even to stop shopping carts and car doors.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

I don't think any of these guys would stay in business long if their sliders didn't hold up. I've been running Shrocks on mine since the summer of '07. They've never hung up on anything including the speed bumps at the mall. Like Sonic says, they're great for pivoting around stuff. Whatever you buy, I'd recommend you get'em with rails.

Now that I have a good working relationship with a local fab shop, I think I might try to design my own rocker panels, not sure if it will include sliders or not. I might elect to stay with aftermarket sliders, but design my own panels. For now my stock Rubi rails are fine.

PSC makes some great sliders! Very easy to install. Heavy duty! And look BAD-AZZ! I really like mine!

I chose the PJ sliders because I loved the look, the body protection around the door, the high clearance with a step, and because I have seen a set that had been beat to hell in the hammers and little Sluice to the point where there was no more paint on the bottom, but not even a dent to show. But they were a Biatch to install, the directions are horrible, and their little hole alignment tool was useless. Once I got past the installation, I like them so far and they have survived some nasty hits.

If I had to do it over again, I would go with the Poison Spyders. They look tough, installation looks more straightforward, and they have all the features I like about the PJ but look even better!
