    Default Which add on first?

    I decided I've been a good boy and earned a reward. Got about $300 to blow and was looking at either, front tube fenders, rock sliders or a rear tire/gear carrier. All would be custom from local dealer. Jeep is still my DD(for a little while longer.) What you think?

    I agree on the rock sliders. Depending on the laws in your area tube fenders on a daily driver may be an issue if they don't cover the tires and I would love to see a good rear bumper/tire/gear carrier for $300, most run at least double that. Rocksliders pretect your Jeep off road and in parking lots too

    For the price you have listed you probably won't be able to afford tube fenders and the mods necessary to keep them street legal (extra lights/turn blinkers)
    Same with the rear tire carrier... although look into the or fab swing away (tire carrier, 2 jerry cans and hi lift carrier). Around $500.

    For sliders or any other armor, I've been real happy with Rokmen's products. They've got 2 sliders to choose from.

    x4 on the Sliders, they would be your best bet. After that, just depends on your build, but at 300.00 for each you can't go wrong.

    Sliders.....

    I put a big azz dent (2 actually) in my door on my first wheeling trip. It was on the last obstacle on the last trail on the last day of a four day trip. I had been as careful as I could be and once I turned a corner it was too late.



    Luckily I knew someone who hooked me up with pulling the dent and matching the paint...


    A "buddy" of mine got it on video and posted it on youtube... It happens just as soon as my front passenger side wheel slides into a rut. There is a boulder that couldn't be avoided.

    Since then I bought some sliders and they have already paid for themselves. There is an 8" gash in sliders that would have been the same place that I got it before.




    I went with the Shrockworks... they are in Houston and I was able to get a set that had been returned for .... a scratch too easy!

    Looks like I'm going to be happy with a new set of sliders. Tire clearance with the tubes hasn't been a problem here, lots of guys have them. Not to say I wouldn't be a first. And your right the tire carrier would of been more. Thanks for the advice gents. I'll throw some pics up when I pick em up.
