I prefer any slider that has Hi-Lift jack points - so the Motobilt version is a good option. Similar to the JCR Off Road version, they require installation of the rocker guards too. So if you're hesitant about drilling into your body, they may not appeal to you.What do you guys think of these?
Another vote for LoD. I also have the signature series rails, and beat on them on rocks using only the bolt on method (they have extra mounting holes that require drilling into the frame if you want extra strength) and they are top notch quality. They do not require removing the body mount bolts. After getting these frame rails, I was impressed and bought the LoD front bumper.I went through this recently. I ended up with the LoD signature series frame-mounted rock sliders. This is one of the few products I've purchased so far that was both designed and built well, and nobody beats their shipping packaging. I haven't landed on them in the rocks, but I'm comfortable with that they'll be able to take a beating.
Note that they recently had a fire at their facility, so that may affect shipping times.
@captnjbk , how do the RSE sliders mount? Do they use the infamous 6 body bolts? Or do they use the other smaller bolts on each side of the body bolts? Same question for their slider skid plates, if you have them.RockSlide Engineering. A little pricey but worth every penny.
Look good. Work even better. And they back their product.
A somewhat better pic of my Rock Hard Patriot Sliders w/ step. Seems it's aways getting dark by the time I am ready to take a pic. 12 bolts mount these sliders to the frame, tub, and mount at the pinch weld to cover the seam. Niiice. Not sure how you could get a more robust product than these. Want to jack the side of the rig up?.....no problem. Love 'em.
Also put the RH "midi" steel front bumper and SB winch today. Fit like a glove. A VERY HD front bumper.....with great skid plate to protect stuff. I am liking the choices of mods I got to this point. Now on to the rear RH bumper with the swinging tire mount. Might provide a bit more challenge? We shall see.
I think most people in this camp don't want something attached to the body mounts and pinch weld.------
^. Not sure I know of any that are more solidly mounted than these. Tell me any others that have better mounts?
I'm still debating between the LoD Signature or the ROAM frame mount. I like how the ROAM cover the pinch seam, but concerned with all the rusting complaints even though I hear the e-coated ones are much better as far as that goes.Another vote for LoD.

Also, their products are made in the USA.

To be honest I was too but they just look so good. After getting them in the mail today, they are SOLID. Not sure I'll be doing anything extreme enough to damage them, let alone the body.
