Can anyone help me understand why you would put the step underneath the factory sliders? The factory sliders will never be hit by anything unless the undermounted step gets crushed, right?

I like my Rock Hard sliders with angled up outer tube. Good step, good ground clearance, very strong.

I would stay away from #Roam, I have a set and they started rusting 5 months in, the answer from the company is to upgrade to the frame mount rails at a charge of almost $500. The problem with the earlier rails is they were outsourced for powder coating and it failed. What I don’t understand is how a poor business decisions on their part would cost me almost $500 to remedy the situation. Now I have to save up and get something else. What really pisses me off is evertime I get into my Jeep I have to look at all the rust.

Rock Hard explains on their website why they do powder coating in-house. They also had problems with outside powder coating services.

Since our doors are aluminum, I don't want careless people to open their car doors into them, or let shopping carts loose into them. I got the Rock Hard angled up for more protection. My Recon was saved from a door dent by the rock rail. You can probably negotiate away the shipping cost when ordering direct, or get through Northridge.

Just bought some brand new ones for 475 shipped.
