if you've ever searched for any JK part on eBay you've undoubtedly come across Spohn's 'Mountain Goat' stuff ( it's budget steering linkages come to mind) ,right? ive never bought any ,but they are USA built (brownie points!) products. I considered their Draglink then thought better and went Synergy way back when. Those sliders are no different than Sh1ttybilt sliders and you can get better, as stated.
Plus, what are you talking about them being frame mounted?
quote from page--->
"....They bolt directly to all three of the factory body mounts for maximum strength, rigidity and durability without any drilling or modifications using the existing factory hardware and they lay tight against the factory rocker panel lip for the ultimate in protection and maximum ground clearance.
The Rocker Boards� mount to all three of the factory body mounts via three "rock boxes"....."
If ya want a good step for the four door JK that is underrated and costs about the same as those, look at TeraFlex (
) extruded aluminum as it is very underated
and light. I can attest to it being far tougher but not anything like a true frame mounted by VKS or PS; it is more for the step purpose, but they're a lot tougher than most have given credit for and doesnt take another 1-2 mpg off your already heavy JKU....
my fam needed a step.
weigh 47lbs total
they have no welds.
I beat the snot out of my JKU as it is 80% offroad/20% on and meets massive rocks which I pivot upon these at times to no damage. I got 'em in raw and used bed liner for easy touch up.
sacrificed some steel strength for weight saving and flawless design execution. they look great.
would buy again.
