I‘ve been out of the Jeep game for a few years... Last Wrangler I had was a 2015 Willys. I was running ACE slides - steps and under body armor from them. Seeing all sorts of new vendors that are not familiar to me. Also know there are potential differences with the 4xe and not seeing a lot of positive confirmation one way or the other from our vendors. What are high quality, high strength sliders. Don‘t go nuts all that often, but I’f I’m dropping my rig on the slider, I want it to hold up and not get hung up. Any ideas? Barricade, ACE, others?

You'll get alot of votes for Ace, and people seem to like them. Personally I have no experience with them, I'm just sharing what I've read researching the same subject. Roam is another popular one, but given the issues people report, and the customer service challenges, I would avoid them.

Metal Cloak is solid, they make great products and you can't go wrong, you just have to decide if you like the aesthetic. LOD and Go Rhino are also good options with flexibility of removable steps.

There are also options like Genright, JCR, and Motobuilt but they require adding and using kicker panels, which for me wasn't something I wanted to do.

All that being said, after my research I am ordering the Nemesis Billy Rocker. They are expensive but they are light (aluminum) and they have removable steps.

After looking I just kept my lod signature sliders. It was a 20lb difference from some of aluminum offerings. Nemesis are nice but for the price and little weight savings due to the steel core. I had them on my jk and they were awesome.

I think genright are the lightest but they recommend additional adds or steel-if you abuse them.
