@ROAM hey Anthony, had the early pre-order steps. Considering the newer steps for the next Jeep, do you guys have that logo cut-out bracket (or no cut-out version!) available?

I sold my Roam Sliders recently after discovering that they had flexed into my Jeep's body multiple times, even with some additional supporting pucks along the pinch seam. I've since switched to VKS Fab weld on sliders and have been really happy with their durability and function.

Sidenote - has anyone else noticed that Roam Offroad has gone completely dark on social media since the end of last year.

I believe it's the opposite, the body twisting into the slider. I read on here that the JL body has flex to it. I have some rub marks on my body behind the front fender where the body contacted my Roam rock rail. That's after serious off-road flexing.

There is some movement between the frame/body as there will be with any body-on-frame vehicle but I'm pretty sure it's from the sliders bending into the body.

I had no issues with lots of articulation until I sustained some hits to the bottom of the slider which caused the damage to my Jeep's rocker panels.
