Double tube maximum protection Rock Slider, 3/16, 2 inch x 3 inch rectangular .120 wall tubular carbon steel tube, additional 1-1/4 round tubing add-on .140 wall Kick-Out extended wheel well to wheel well armor protection for extreme user. No-drill chassis mount installation. 4 Mil Black Powder Coat finish with UV protector.
Nice rock rails for my new JLU. However, installation of bolts through Jeep body holes and into threaded rail holes was a “BEAR”. The rails should have been engineered just like the factory rails. Bolts welded to rails that go through body holes and with washers and nuts attached easily. Otherwise, I love the rails from BA.
This option requires no drilling of your Tub/Body and no drilling of your Frame, as compared to other rock guards. I plan to avoid rocks, but the heavy duty steel in these Side Guards will protect my tub from rock hits. As my LJ is my daily driver, I plan to do moderate off-roading. The Guards are 30 pounds of steel each.
These fit perfect & bolted on in about 15 minutes each side. That's getting tools out & all!! I installed these by myself.
I am not huge into off road abuse of my jeep (yea, I guess I am a yuppy) but these are easy to install and look nice on my jeep. Nice powder coating and they look like they would hold up well if you were to truely use them for rock protection.
Loook good, heavy duty
Easy to install and provide great protection for the rocker pannels.
Very easy to install at an excellent price. Mostly purchased to be used as a step for my two small kids to get in and out of the Jeep, but now that I have my Jeep lifted I use them all the time as well. Solid feel, nice looking powder coat. Not sure on the overall durability as I have not offroaded the Jeep since installation but they have been on for 3 months with no issues from road debris, etc.
Overall happy with the final install, despite passenger side rail not lining up with pinch weld mounts. (rail was 1/2 an inch off and new holes on the pinch rail had to be drilled. Gaps where the armor meets the body on both sides may need to be sealed or caulked, making the rubberized seal almost worthless. Riv nut tool is difficult to use and should be reevaluated or replaced with a different tool, so I used my own. armor mounting instructions weren't included with or were missing from the package and i had to find them on Body Armor website or 4WD website and download. Kit was missing the 2 inch bolt used to mount the riv nuts; had to purchase one at [@] (6 mil, not 1/4 inch as suspected. 1 person 3 hour install turned to into a much longer install, because of mounting issues above. Instructions need Waaaay more pictures or illustrations for the do-it-yourselfer to follow, especially those not familiar with the riv nut installation.
great product for the money. protects just beyond the front edge of the rocker pannel to just past the rear. full coverage. strong step. does not flex when i stand on it and i am 230lbs.
Do the RockCrawler Side Guards serve as a solid step (mount to frame?) as well as guard?

Hey Rob, the Body Armor 4x4 RockCrawler Side Guards would work as both a step and guard. Thanks for your question.
