        I ordered these looking for a set for my TJ unlimited- the long one from 2004. It says they will fit but are too short- is these a set like these but 4 inches longer? When I search - it brings me back here- they are nice but too short.

        • Very sorry for the confusion. For the longer set of Rugged Ridge rocker guards for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, please follow the link provided below.

        I would like to know/ or see a picture of the bottom side of the rocker guard. How much does this cover on the bottom. does the bottom go almost to the frame ? please answer ? Darryl

        • Hello, this rock slider covers the whole pinch weld in the side of the body. It does slant downwards and protect the bottom, but it does not tuck up and under to the frame.

            Extreme Terrain Install is Backwards

            Before buying these rocker guards, I checked just about every review I could along with install instructions. One thing I noticed was owners complaining of needing additional nutserts. Looking at my 2001 and where the holes were place, I had a hunch that no nutserts would be needed. Online directions also reinforced this so why would so many reviews AND the pics here say otherwise? It is because the instructions that shipped with the guards direct from Rugged Ridge have the sliders mounted backwards! This was enough to mislead Extreme Terrain which is now misleading all subsequent buyers. On my 2001, NO nutserts were needed. Only 2003 and up when the seatbelt was moved will require 1 nutsert that is included. If you need 3, you have it on backwards but this is really Rugged Ridge's fault. 4 Stars for the product but -2 for this critical instruction error.

            Just what a was looking for

            These were just the right choice for me. Install was easy with tools most of us have. I did order extra nutserts which made for an easy install. I think they look great and like the extra protection.

            Holy Nut Serts!

            I like the look and feel of these rockers and I have been looking for some time. They are heavy duty and the install was easy if you know what you're doing. The challenge I have with these is that they only give you two Rivet Nut (Nutserts) and you really need 6, three for each side. The instructions didn't address this and I really don't like having to buy additional hardware when I just paid full price for the product.

            Really good

            Really heavy duty but not to the body mounts. Good if your geep is mildly crusty

            Very rugged

            Kind of hard to put all bolts in on my 2000 as it is not a drill and bolt nut situation on each hole. I used self tappers for 3/5 holes up top
