I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guards, fitting all 1987-2006 Wranglers. This is for those of you who want some light protection on the trail and some protection against door dings in the parking lot. These will also provide you with a step that'll make it a lot easier to get into and out of your stock or lifted height jeep.Now, these are really well built and the only reason that they don't provide a little bit more protection is because of the way they mount. However, these are also gonna be less expensive than some stronger armor on the market and even save you a couple of dollars over similar design and similar mounting armor. Like I said, these are really well built. They're built from one and three-quarter inch diameter .12 inches wall thickness stainless steel that's coated in a textured black powder coated finish, which means that they're going to resist both rust and corrosion because of the powder coating. But if you do get a little bit of damage, you don't have to worry about rust like you would with a mild steel step.Now, like I said, even though these are really well built, it's the way that they mount them makes them a little weaker than some armor that mounts directly to the body. These are designed to drill into the frame and be held on with self-tapping screws. So they're gonna be fine for that light protection on and off road and they're gonna be a great step. However, if you're gonna do some more hard core off-roading and you want to be able to drop the Jeep off of a ledge onto your rocker guards, chances are these are probably going to move.Getting these installed on your Jeep is a pretty straightforward process, but I would recommend having an extra set of hands around because they are a little bit heavy and a little bit large. If you don't have a friend to help you out during the installation, you can use some jack stands to hold up the weight. The first step in the process is going to be removing any other step or rocker armor that you might have on your Jeep, including any factory side steps. From there, you'll hold these bars up to the frame and mark all eight of the holes on each side for drilling. From there, you'll get out your drill and start stepping up to the final hole size. Because these use self-tapping screws to install, you wanna make sure that you don't drill the hole too big or the bolt won't bite. Once you have all of the holes drilled, you can put the rocker guard back in place and install again all eight of the bolts per side.After that, you're done. The whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour and you won't need any specialty tools, but having a nice power cord drill and a sharp set of drill bits will help with the process. As I mentioned, these are really well built, the finish is nice, and overall, they're a really nice product. They are going to be less expensive than some armor that's going to be stronger, but you're gonna pay for the strength with that other armor.So, it really comes down to what you want for your Jeep. If you want something that's gonna provide light protection and a nice step and save you a couple of dollars, this is a really nice option. In fact, these are even less expensive than other rocker guards on the market that are of similar design and mount in the same way. So, if you're looking for some rocker protection on your Jeep and a nice useful step, this is a nice option to take a look at. It's well put together, the finish is really nice, and it's even less expensive than some armor on the market that is of similar design and mounts in the same way.So, that's my review of the RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard, fitting all 1987-2006 Wranglers, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com

Dear God these are AWESOME!
Oh, yeah! I just installed these on my 97. So, pulling all the OEM cladding off and using Barricade front and rear fenders, I felt this Jeep needed some rocker protection. These were an amazing compliment to the rest! I installed the rubberized (sticker) rocker guard from Extreme Terrain first, and then these and it looks awesome, and protects well. Installation of these was harder because it was just me. The bolts require a 5/16" hole, which without an impact is impossible so you have to ream them out just a hair. I drove the bolts in by HAND with a ratchet and extension. What a pain in the butt! End of the day, worth it! I held up the steps with jack stands while I marked and drilled the spot for the bolts. A little hillbilly ingenuity goes a long way!Helpful (3)

Redrock rocker guards
They fit very well. Need 2 people for sure to install. And it takes say 4 hrs to complete the install. Could not get the 2 front top bolts in as there is a fender bracket in the way. I would have rated this a 5 star if the bolts were a little heavier.Helpful (3)

This product has great quality. The powder coat looks amazing and they are strong. The install is pretty difficult alone and requires some time to make sure they are even and are in the same spot on both sides overall a great product to add some style and protection to your Jeep!Helpful (2)

Great look for the money. Install was pretty straight forward, but had some problems with the self threading bolts. Install would have take a lot less time if it were not for the bolts.Helpful (3)

Installed, but not yet truely tested.
Pros: Fitment and looks are good. Cons: Provided hardware not ideal, and questionable long term durability. I just installed these on my TJ, but haven't put them to the test yet. My main purpose for these is to provide a jacking point (off the body on the sides of the jeep. The guards themselves seem nice, but I don't like the attachment points. The frame is roughly 3/16" thick, and that only allows for about 2......2.5 thread widths for the screws to screw in. This is a weak point. Also, the hardware is less than ideal. I would GREATLY SUGGEST using a proper tap to thread your holes, and not the supplied screws. ALSO, if your willing to weld on 1/8" (or thicker) plates to the attachment points of the frame, I believe it would be a BIG improvement. To be fair, the company does say that these are for "light protection." If they don't bend when i jack the jeep up, I'll be happy with them. Overall a decent product for the price.Helpful (6)
I have a 98 Wrangler TJ that had factory (I think) side steps on it that bolted to the sides of the frame rails. I'm wondering if these would have the same bolt hole pattern. Could you tell me the dimensions of the hole pattern, the bolt size thread and the distance from one end of the hole pattern to the other please?
These do not mount in the factory running board mounting holes.
Can I use a high jack on it?
These can be used with a Hi-Lift Jack, however care must be taken as a round tube will allow for some slippage.
Are these sturdy enough to stand on ?
Yes, the RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard will be sturdy enough to stand on.
Do these require removal of the factory plastic fender extentions behind the front wheels? Thanks.
Hello! The RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard do not require removal of the factory plastic fender extensions.
What size drill bit do i use
Hello! The RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard requires you to drill 5/16” holes
We do not recommend using these as a jack point.
These will still be mounted the same for the 2006 Wrangler Unlimited models.
These do require drilling into the frame for installation and while custom fabrication with welding may be possible, that is not the intended application of these.
Unfortunately, these rocker guards may not install properly if they are reversed. We do have steps for your Wrangler that would be designed for that purpose and you can find those here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/wrangler-jeep-tj-side-steps.html. These ones here by N-Fab would have a drop down design: https://www.extremeterrain.com/n-fab-wheel-to-wheel-nerf-step-gloss-black-9706.html.
No, the RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard will require drilling for install along with the other rocker guards that look similar.
The RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard - Textured Black (87-06 Wrangler YJ & TJ) should be installed as per the photo. If these rocker guards are installed upside down they would not function as a rocker guard to protect your Jeep while on the trail.
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, these will not fit the Unlimited TJ model.
The RedRock 4x4 Rocker Guard are designed to be installed for maximum ground clearance and protection of the rockers, while these could be installed inverted, it would not meet these goals. We strongly recommend against welding to the frame, as this can cause several issues, both with removing the rocker guards, rust forming at the frame, and even warping and tearing of the frame as the frame is only approximately 3/16" steel. Bolt in installation will prevent many of these issues.
