$229.99 (pair)FREE Shipping
Hey guys, it's Sara from extremeterrain.com, and today we have a review and install of the Barricade Rock Sliders fitting your '07 through '18 2-door Jeep Wrangler JKs. These rock sliders feature a heavy-duty stainless steel tubular construction with a textured black powder coat finish. So these rock sliders provide side as well as undercarriage protection and double as a step, and this is one of the few products that offers both of those as options and allows you to keep your factory or factory-style Rubi Rails intact. Also, if you are an avid off-roader, these are slanted upwards slightly to work against getting hung up on rocks or other obstacles while you're out on the trails. Coming in at around $230, these are middle-of-the-road price-wise when compared to other options, but for your money you are getting the protection of a rock slider with the convenience of a step. I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does feature a direct bolt-up installation utilizing your factory body bolts, and can be done in two hours with the help of a friend. All right, with that said, let's jump right into our install. For this install we used a deep 18-millimeter socket and an impact gun. All right, so the first step in our install is to remove the two body bolts from underneath your Jeep. Using an 18-millimeter socket remove these bolts. All right, with our body bolts out we can now line up our side step underneath our Jeep and get them reinstalled. You may want a friend for this step, because these are a little bit heavy. Get your bolt through the bracket on your slider and thread it back into your Jeep. Grab your 18-millimeter socket and tighten it down. Repeat that with the back body bolt. Grab your 18-millimeter socket and tighten it down. All right, so that is gonna do it for the review and install of our rock sliders. Remember, for all things Jeep keep it at extremeterrain.com.

Barricade Rock Sliders install.
We ordered the sliders on Monday, received them Thursday and installed them on Friday with the help of a friend. The fit was perfect and install was easy. Used an impact wrench which made the install quick. Also used lock tight thread lock to insure the body bolts and sliders don’t come lose. During install be sure to start the bolts three or four threads before torquing then completely. The sliders look great and enhance the appearance of the Jk.Helpful (0)

Nice finish, sturdy
These look great and have a nice black finish. I am a short girl and I wanted a little something to help me step up in my Jeep, and these are nice for that. The design doesn’t cause them to cake up with dirt and debris excessively. My husband installed them fairly quickly and easily. They don’t really cover the pinch weld along the bottom of the Jeep (which I think is unattractive) but they do distract from it significantly. I like that they won’t hold water and dirt next to my Jeep body, since they’re mounted to the frame. These are exactly what I wanted for functionality for a price I am happy with.Helpful (2)

Function and looks great!
These look good and work great for my wife and passengers to get into the front and especially the back seat in my 2D Rubicon JK. They have just enough non-slip step surface without taking away much ground clearance. I love that they install over the existing sliders for a clean look.Helpful (1)

Impressed with out-of-box quality
They arrived very well packed via UPS. Instructions are minimal but it's not hard to figure out. Ends of the tubes are sealed, which is good, and the powder/texture was even and complete. My short wife says that the guard acts as a step just fine. It attaches using the frame bolts which is why this thing is rated for actually being able to lift the jeep with a hi-lift. I recommend new blue lock-tite on the bolts for reinstallation. I thought I was going to have to re-drill one of the mounting holes but everything lined up after I loosened the bolts and shoved things around a bit. The lesson is the keep things really loose until you have all the bolts inserted part way. I haven't bashed this on a rock yet but I suspect it'll come through just fine.Helpful (1)

Easy install. Exactly what I needed.
Had zero issues with this install. Delivery was fast and box was not damaged. All you need is an 18mm socket and wrench. Had my brother pull down the bolts as I loosened them and they came out with no trouble. Seems sturdy so far and haven’t noticed any squeaking noise others have mentioned. Took less than an hour.Helpful (1)

For those who installed the Barricade Rock Sliders on a 2-Dr JK Rubicon and KEPT the OEM rails in place. Please comment on the usable "step" space available beyond the rails edge. There are some great Customer pictures but it's somewhat difficult to determine how far the actual step space extends. And also please note if you modified (extra washers to lower or oblonged bolt holes to side extend) the install. Thanks!
To answer my own question - Installed on 2016 Rubicon 2-Dr with OEM Rails and ended up with ABOUT 3.5 inches of usable step surface. Relatively small but mostly adequate.
Do I need to take off the factory installed Rubicon rock rails or can I leave them on when installing this product?
The Barricade Rock Sliders will fit wit the OEM Rubicon and Willys rock rails, as well as Barricade Rubi Rails.
Do these work as a hi jack lift point
The Barricade Rock Sliders can be used as a recovery jack lift point.
How much does this 4 door kit weigh, including rails and all hardware?
The Barricade Rock Sliders For the 4 door Wrangler has a complete shipping weight of 86 Lbs including all hardware.
Can these be used as a high lift Jack point?
The Barricade Rock Sliders can be used as a high lift jack point, however we recommend against this, as the tubular design and lack of notches can make the jack prone to slipping/sliding.
The Barricade Rock Sliders should be torqued to 80 ft/lbs as listed on the install guide: https://lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J100288-J100289-manu.pdf.
