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.

Just ordered shrockworks since they were having that "in-stock" promotion.

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.

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.

No problems with my Smittybilts.

I've reseted the weight of my Jeep on each side several times. No issues.
:confused: huh? What do you mean?

+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.
