    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from, and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Rock Crawler Rock Sliders, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of these rock sliders which is a two out of three wrench install because this does require you to drill eight holes into your frame in order to get these installed. I would recommend setting aside two hours to get these bolted up but will give some more information on the install in just a second. We're also going to talk through the features and the construction of these sliders.These are gonna be for those of you who are interested in some side protection for the rocker area of your Jeep when you're going offroad, and also want something that will help you get in and out of your Jeep by working as a fairly useful step as well. Now, while these do require you to drill into your frame, these don't require you to drill into your body. There are sliders on the market that do require you to drill the body, in my opinion, those are going to be a little bit stronger and work a little bit better. So if you're looking for even more protection and you're okay drilling the body, those sliders are probably gonna be the best option for you. If you're looking for a little bit of a lighter protection and you're still okay drilling into the frame, this is going to be an option for you. And if you're not interested in drilling at all, I would recommend looking at one of the sliders that bolts directly onto the body mounts of your Jeep, so you won't have to drill any holes.Overall, this is going to be a fairly well-built and a fairly strong rock slider. Although being bolted into the frame as it is and having a lot of leverage from sticking out from the frame, does mean you're not going to get quite as much protection from these as with those other sliders that are available. So, it really comes down to what your budget is and how you use your Jeep. As I said, these are a pretty well-built slider. These are going to be two-inch round tubing that is .12-inch wall thickness and they're covered in a textured black powder coat finish, which is gonna help resist rust and corrosion and makes them look pretty good in my opinion. Now, there are some other sliders on the market that are of a similar design and they fall into a similar price range as well. They are going to be a similar product. If you're definitely interested in going with the Rugged Ridge brand, I would recommend going with these, there's nothing wrong with them. However, if you're not that brand loyal, or that brand specific, then there are a couple other versions of these that you can consider as well. So, as I mentioned before, the install for these is going to be a two out of three wrenches, and you're gonna wanna give yourself at least two hours to get them bolted up. The process for installing these is going to be holding the slider up to the side of the frame, positioning them where you like them, marking all eight holes, then removing the slider and drilling out the holes. Final assembly will be holding the slider up to the side of the frame again, and using the included self-tapping screws to secure the slider onto the frame. Again, if you're not interested in drilling into your Jeep, this is not going to be the rock slider for you. If you are okay with drilling, you are going to have to have your hand tools around to get these installed as well as of course, a drill and a good sharp set of drill bits.These are gonna come in right around $225 and for something that is going to offer some protection on to the rocker area, and a change to the look of your Jeep and give you a step, I don't think that's too bad of a price. As I said before, there are some other versions of these out there that are built pretty well also and right around the same price. If you like the Rugged Ridge ones, I have nothing bad to say about these. These are gonna be good options. So, that's

    Construction. Created from incredibly strong steel, these rock crawler rock guards from Rugged Ridge give your Jeep a rugged, aggressive look, and offer plenty of added utility as well. With a special frame mounting design, you get secure, bounce-free installation, while the mounting points remain higher than the frame. The end result? A great product that offers greater ground clearance.

    Protection. If you're an off-road enthusiast and want to protect your Jeep from outcroppings, then this is the product for you. It raises the ground clearance, which both gives you an opportunity to take this Jeep places it hasn't been before, and to avoid damage from outcroppings. The unique side hoop takes it a step further and brushes away branches and other debris.

    Application. Fits 1987 - 2006 YJ & TJ Wranglers. Installation involves minor drilling and all installation hardware is included in the kit.

        Could these be switched from left to right and mounted upside down and used as a step? The better half is a little vertically challenged and would be used more visually than functionally. Just a thought.

        • The Rugged Ridge Rock Crawler Rock Sliders would not be able to be installed reversed due to their mounting pattern.

        I have a 2006 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, I was just checking to see if they will fit. I don't see a dimension listed for length. Thanks

        • Yes, the Rugged Ridge Rock Crawler Rock Sliders will fit a 2006 Wrangler Unlimited.

        I just ordered the RedRock Rivet Style Fender Flares from this site and was thinking about upgrading to these rock sliders, but I wanted to ask if any modifications will be necessary to the fender flares when installing these? I noticed that some of the other slider brands did require mods...

        • Hello, you should not have to make any fender modifications when installing the Rugged Ridge Rock Crawler Rock Sliders.

            Love rhem

            They went on pretty easy. They look amazing. I recommend an impact when you install.

            Looks great but needs better bolts

            I installed this myself with some jack stands to hold it in place. Over all it fits really well. It does take a while to install if you do it alone though. I only gave it a 4 because the bolts strip out really easily. I tried just using a ratchet but the tip would strip, so I used my impact gun, that helped out getting them started but I would have to back them out several times and sometimes use a new bolt to finish tapping the hole, then put the previous bolt back in. When it was all said and done, I had 4 bolts that were too stripped to tap the remaining wholes, so i had to go get a tap to finish the job. I would definitely recommend they include an actual hole tap or buy one yourself before hand. Other than that, im really pleased with the look. Pretty good for the price.

            Not What I Expected.

            Product appears well made but had several issues during installation. The front mounting pad was rotated such that only 3 of the 4 bolts can be drilled into the frame. Also, there is not enough clearance to leave the body trim intact behind the fender. This has to be removed. Finally, the "self tapping bolts" are a joke - 7 out of the 8 I tried stripped rather than even start into the frame. The holes will have to be tapped out prior to installation and these bolts replaced with a better grade of fastener. Overall, allow much more time for installation.

            Look tough and really protect

            These were not difficult to install but was time consuming to get it done correctly and level. took about 2.5 hours. if you have a lift it would probably take 2 hours. definitely need assistance to install. this is not a one man job unless u like to make thing difficult for yourself. can be used as a step but not made for that. strictly protect the body, so I like the fact that they curve up. .

            Bought these as a gift for my son. Beloved them! They are exactly what he was looking for and he stated they were surprisingly easy to install.

            Rocker Guards

            These are a great product. They are strong and sturdy. They hug the bottom of the body well. They take a little work to put them on (need at least 2 people). Overall great investment.
