    Default rock slider/step

    I was thinking about trying to build a set of rock sliders/steps for my TJ. I have access to metal so that wont be an issue. Does anyone out there have any experience or ideas/tips? I know you cant just attach them to the side of the Jeep because they will rip open the tub with to much pressure on them. Thanks in advance.

    I am looking at this design. I like the tubing step and the main body of the slider under the edge of the body tub and the rub rail tubing can be angled up 20 degrees

    Here is a picture of my TJ with my rock sliders on it. I have a 1 inch body lift on my so I have some additional clearance between mine and the rocker. They were built by Mike at http://www.custom4x4fabrication.com look under the Mil Discounts tab at the top of the page. Edit: Forgot to mention these are frame mounted, no holes drilled application, using a clamp against itself design.



    Here is a picture without the body lift on it for comparison.

    Mine are home fabbed for the most part.

    I bought 3/16plate and had it broke at 90degrees. Then had a friend bend some dom and weld it on. Alittle bigger than most but great for wife and kids using as a step and saved my hard top from getting bashed a couple time. I used some left over plate and drilled holes so there like big freakin washers to keep from pulling through. I wish I would have put a gasket in there but I didnt. I will look for some pics or something I may have done on it. Think they cost about 150 for material

    Mid way down page is a pic of them before mounting.
    Mounted with grade 8 bolts like I said plated inside to prevent pull through
    I simply notched around the body mounts.
    Plan is have cage tie in to them with floor plates then rubber bushing between rocker then tied to frame when cage gets done.

    I have hit them pretty friggin hard and my tub is fine

    Here are mine. The steel shop was out of anlge iron, so I used 3/16" flat stock, welded it at 90 deg (like angle iron), with 2x2 tubing welded to it. I bolted them directly to the tub on the side, nothing underneath. I came down on it very hard several times, no issues with them yet.
