      Construction. Smittybilt's Rock Sliders are hand shaped out of 3/16 inch steel to fit your Wrangler with precision. The tube step is a 1.75 inch round steel tubing. The whole assembly is finished in a matte black powder coat finish to prevent rust, and to keep your Jeep looking great for years.

      Protection. These guards preserve your Jeep's rocker panels while the integrated step allows you and passengers to get in and out of your Jeep easier. Lifted rigs can especially benefit from the step bar! Are you looking to further customize your TJ? The powder coat finish is a perfect primer if you want to repaint these guards.

        Smittybilt - TJ Unlimited LJ

        Beautifully Built - Look Great - Only 2 issues I encountered were that the rocker portion of the sliders covers the 'Unlimited' decal. The interior SS Bolts on the Drivers side are hidden beneath the wiring harness cover. Be careful when drilling not to damage cable run,,, On the passenger side the bolts are visable - Otherwise it would be 5 Stars.

        Not too good

        It’s just a regular side step because I doesn’t cover the bottom part of the Jeep

        5 2002 Wrangler - Biginch

        2002 TJ

        Followed the instructions to the letter. My rock guards were on in two hours and they are a perfect fit. With relatively small tires on my TJ (31-10.5-15) they were just what I needed to protect the sides of my Jeep from those nasty roots and rocks that always seem to get in my way. Just having them on is a big confidence builder.Oh yeah they look tough too

        Solid! Easy time install

        Wife and I took an afternoon time install these side steps. We'd not done something like this before so the first one took a little longer because of our learning curve. Other than that, they installed as expected and the directions were correct. They work great!

        It's worth every penny

        I bought the xrc rock sliders with step for my 1998 jeep wrangler tj. I am very satisfied with this product it was way better than I expected it to be. Very tough durable I love the paint on it and it changed the look of my whole jeep. It's worth every penny and I would recommend to a friend and definitely buy again.

      I notice in some pictures there is a space between the bottom of the door and the top of the top of the rock slider but in other pictures the top of the rock slider comes right up to the bottom of the door is there a reason for this i prefer the gap.

      • The Bar on the Smittybilt XRC Rock Sliders will sit approximately 3/4" of the way up the steel plate at its highest point.
