NGL but you dont do any sort of off roading if you're touting shittybuilt, ACE, etc. Also, ACE is not frame mounted at all, and is mounted by just 3 crappy body mounts so you are ill-informed.

Besides the fact that ACE hang so damn low they destroy your clearance, they will bend right into your tub on the first rock you ever hit.

If you actually go off roading and plant o use the sliders, the choices are VKS, LOD, PS, EVO, shrockworks. Also mayyyybeee RockHard if you only want body mounted.

Everything else aint it. Simple.

they do not mount to the frame. they mount to the pinch seam and body mounts.... Nothing that just screws into existing holes is frame mounted.

Looking for sliders to replace my factory Rubicon rails, something with a functional step (recent lift has made it challenging for the boss to get in) that doesn't decrease clearance significantly.

Kind of narrowed it down to 2 options, for now at least.

Option 1: Known good, seems to be popular. The Rock Hard 4x4 Patriot sliders seem to be high quality and beefy. The flat version provides everything I'm looking for.
ROCK HARD 4X4™ PATRIOT SERIES TUBE SLIDER ROCKER GUARDS - FLAT STEP FOR JEEP WRANGLER JL 4DR 2018 - CURRENT [RH-90105]

Option 2: Seems to be relatively new, no reviews, just one Youtube video...from Quadratec, which obviously has bias considering its their sliders. Looking for feedback on these. Guessing these are just a cheaper product all the way around, the specs don't really provide any useful detail as far as materials and thickness are concerned.
Quadratec Brute Strength Side Steps for 18-20 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL 4-Door

Thoughts?
I bought a set of the Quadratec ones and am very happy. Great fit and very sturdy. My wife is short and she likes them. My only concern at this point is if galvanic corrosion will become an issue. If I remember correctly these mount to the same locations as the stock Rubicon rails and I have seen those take huge rock hits and not budge, so I'm not super concerned about the body bolts.
Because of the quality I'm eyeballing the brute strength aluminum rear bumper. But no one has been able to tell me how it takes hits on the trail and if it does so without pushing into the body.

We run shrockworks on my wife’s JL.
I picked them because:
~They are a solid built product, something similar to what I’d build if these were not offered.
- They are made locally and I’m all about that
- They look nice to me, tuck well, and are an actual slider & my wife and kids benefit from the step out.

install was a breeze. Once my wife drags them over some stuff to follow me around I’ll give an honest report 🤘🏼

Shrockworks makes an excellent product if you’re willing to wait for they to build it. It’s worth it. Good ground clearance, strong, and good protection. I’ve used their products on multiple jeeps and other brand vehicles too.

I've dealt with Mark over the years, is he the owner? I'm really surprised more people don't use their products. My guess is the delivery times or not readily available in the stores for fast delivery. Their bumpers are always the best looking IMO.

BTW your red wheels look great on that black w/red Rubicon accents.

yessir

Marks the man!
I feel the very same way, I think most people want thier stuff ASAP and do not want the wait. To me the product is worth the wait🤘🏼

thank you,
My wife picked them and I do like the way they paired with the black and matte red dash/logo

We recently installed the LOD destroyer ones. Very happy with them
How do these work as a "step"? I don't want full on slider steps but I like these, and my short family needs a step. Pics appreciated.
