How to Install LoD Offroad Signature Series Rock Sliders on your Wrangler

Shop Parts in this Guide

1. To remove either the Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon rocker guards or Sahara running boards, use a lamm wrench to remove the 3 pairs of nuts seeming them to the body pinch seals.


2. Using a l3mm socket, remove the 3 bolts securing the Rubicon factory rocker guards or Sahara running boards to the bottom of your Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited's body.


3. With the 6 nuts and 3 bolts removed, the factory rocker guards or rum ling boards on your Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon or Sahara should pull off the body pinch seam with ease. Set them aside.


startingg on the driver side of your Jeep JK Wrangler, use an lamm socket to remove the bolts securing the automatic transmission and transfer case skid plates to the frame rail.


5. Determine which slider is the Driver Side. To accomplish this simply measure the length of the mounts. The shorter mount is the end of the slider which faces the front of the .Jeep.


6. Using the factory hardware, secure your new LoD Signature Series Rock Slider to the points where the automatic transmission and transfer case skid plates attach the frame rail on your Jeep JK Wrangler. An lamm socket will be needed for this job. (Note: If your jeep has a manual transmission you will need spacers to make up thickness of this cross-member. If no spacers are used the sliders will not follow the body line.~)



Important: Before marking or drilling any holes be sure to make sure that the slider is positioned properly. The slider needs to be aligned so that it maintains an even spacing between it and the pinch seam of the body.


The top hole is already there for the 4" bolt.

The bottom hole marked with arrows will need to be marked and drilled for a 7/16"-20 tap (so the drill bit will be slightly undersized.)

Go through one side of the frame, so you can insert the 7/16" x 1" bolt.




10. With your LoD Signature Series Rock Slider set aside, locate and mark the center of all the holes you need to drill out with a center punch. This will help keep your drill bit from wandering away once you start drilling.


11. Using a small metal drilling bit or Unibit, begin drilling pilot holes on all the mounting points on you’ve marked off your Jeep JK Wrangler’s frame rail.


12. If you don’t have one already, you really need to pick up a matched 7/16" x NF20 Drill Bit and Tap Set like the one shown above.


13. Using the drill bit that comes with the drill and tap set, finish drilling out all the pilot holes that you made back on step #11.


14. If you don’t have some already, I would highly recommend that you pick up some cutting oil as it will help make tapping your mounting holes a whole lot easier.


15. With the help of some cutting oil, slowly and carefully tap all your mounting holes. Due to the body of the Jeep JK Wrangler being in the way, you will not be able to use a standard tap handle to do this. I improvised and used a wrench to do this job.


16. Place your LoD Signature Series Rock Slider back on a floor jack and carefully maneuver in place under your Jeep JK Wrangler’s driver side rocker panel.


17. Using the factory hardware, secure your new LoD Signature Series Rock Slider to the points where the automatic transmisson and transfer case skid plates attach the frame rail on your Jeep JK Wrangler. An 18mm socket will be needed for this job.


18. Using the 7/16"x1" bolts that come with the kit, secure your LoD Signature Series Rock Slider onto the new mouting holes that you made on your Jeep JK Wrangler’s frame rails


20. Repeat this process on the passenger side of your Jeep JK Wrangler.
