Sliders with a step

Before you say anything, I know there are threads out there discussing this subject, but I didn't find the answer I was looking for if it's out there. I am looking for sliders for my JKRU that have a step built in. Just wondering if there is anything that is a similar style to the Nemesis Billy Rockers or the Genright sliders that aren't so GD expensive. The Billy rockers are almost doable but $1k for the Genrights? Man they're kind of hard to justify to the woman. Let me know what you've found if anything...Ready, Shoot!

they don't offer the kind of protection that the Nemesis or the Genright aluminum offerings do, but the TeraFlex rock sliders are extruded aluminum , fit like a glove and are much tougher than folks lead you to believe + are super light and have a great step; I have beaten on them and just had to rebedline the dings. Wife approved cost , to boot( I was in same boat as you on the $ ) ....
here comes the "body-mounted" v. Frame mounted sh*tstorm ....


( they can take weight of my four door on them pivoting around and on a rock without damaging the body , fwiw)

I love Teraflex products, I have their 3in lift with flex arms installed, but the fact that these are body mounted instead of frame mounted has me a little worried.

LoD sliders are work great as a step and a big plus for me is they come powder coated. Frame mounted and priced fair.

I looked at these as well. Not sure why they aren't long enough on either end to protect the whole body though. They are on the list as a possibility though.

they worried me , as well ; but the way extruded aluminum works + the dispersal of the impact areas due to the bolt configuration makes these spread the load of an impact out much better. you have three key bolts run up and thru the body into the re-enforced edge of floor and then the 7 rivnutcert that hold it to the outer body really make them more stout than they are given credit for; if you slam down 3' off a ledge onto a spire or spike of rock? sure, they will probably damage the body; but for use and abuse that a thought-out line will take you down, they can work while not weighing 100+ lbs combined. It was a sacrifice I was willing to make because the wife and kids had to have ingress options and I was not adding another 100 bls on the rig. When I saw the design I became far less worried and then read about aluminum extrusion and became even less concerned. Again, I have pivoted with the right side fully a top a rock on these and no damage other than a gouge on the slider.
But if you are a basher, these won't be the best choice, agreed......

those were my first choice but , again, the weight; very similar design to the TeraFlex but those are 150lbs combined weight; the TF are 47lbs combined. RockSlide makes awesome stuff.

Thanks for all the input. Giving me a lot more to think about. Again, I really do like Teraflex products, and the weight is great on those. Their engineering department over there really does put a lot of thought into the products they put out. I also stumbled across some that Hanson Offroad makes. Anyone know anything about them?

Vick, I will take a look. I just finished finally putting your prerunner bumper on this weekend. Took me a day to so to get used to it after having that monstrosity(OEM bumper) for so long, but I am digging it. Now all I need is a winch and a light bar to hook up to it and I'll be in business.

that's a good looking , stout-appearing stubby; I like it very much+ looks good on your rig. It takes time to get used to functional upgrades versus the gork-fest thst are the OEM plastics, fer sure. Enjoy the improved clearance and don't worry how she looks ( great!)

the metalcloak flip step sliders may be be closer to the cost of the genrights once you get them powdercoated, but they're a good solution if you need a lower step for the wife or little ones. they can be 'flipped' when your ready to hit the trails.

I like those too, but I think I prefer the Billy Rockers. I know the armor is riveted to the body but are they attached to the frame as well?

These look super stout, but I have to say, I am not a huge fan of the aesthetics of them. Thanks for the suggestion though!

They mount to the under body but also use the frame body bolts to help support them.

Do you guys have a steel option for the Billy Rockers? Or is aluminum it?

Slider Steps: Rocker Walks for JK from KM Safari

We make a set of Rocker Walk Side steps that are heavy duty and FRAME MOUNTED. They are great for a standing surface and stout enough to tolerate rock abuse... They are not designed to go boulder bashing for the rest of their life, but they will take some trail punishment without getting destroyed and they will protect your body section. All while providing a great step!

They work great: Here's a link where you can get them from Quadratec: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...fAYcXcXW4nCteghttps://www.jkowners.com/forum/attach...1&d=1446159964Name:  IMG_0340 Resized.jpg
