Do these provide much of a step? I have a 2015 JKU Sahara and I realize the Sahara steps don't provide any protection. I want to replace them with sliders, but I have family members that appreciate the assistance a step provides. Do these work as a step, even in a diminished capacity?
This bar does not provide adequate stepping space for secure footing and sits tight against the body.
How much do they weigh?
The TJM Rock Sliders Bars weigh approximately 136lbs for the pair.

Great Sliders - A Bit Frustrating to Install
These sliders are very solid and look great. The main selling point for me was Hi-Lift jacking points. The welds between the plate and the tubes don't look very good out of the box, but when they are installed you don't even see them due to the way the plate is angled facing downward. I could not find any information on their weight before I purchased them, so in case you would like to know, they weigh about 100 lbs. each. The installation was a bit frustrating as there are some threaded plate nuts that you need to fish through the inside of the frame via wires that come welded to the nuts. Since the entry point in the frame for some of these nuts are about 6" from where the nut needs to go, it was a bit tricky to bend the wire to the right angle so that the nut could be located in correct location and sit flat against the inside of the frame. Now that I have it figured out, it would not be that difficult for me to do it again. What certainly didn't help was that the bolts that were provided for these nuts were about 1/4" too short. This took me some time to figure out. I could see the nut that I fished inside the frame, but when I tried to install the bolt, it would not engage the nut. I had to run to the hardware store to buy some slightly longer bolts, which did the trick. On the driver's side there are two long bolts at the back end of the slider. These are also about 1/4" too short due to the uncompressed height of the lock washers. I purchased nylock nuts for these which eliminated the need for the lock washers and I was good to go. Also, the hole for the bracket that uses the existing bolts in the frame for the cross member did not line up properly with the hole in the frame on the driver's side. This caused me to install the bolt at a slight angle, and I stripped the bolt a bit. If you have this problem like I did, you will need to make the square hole in the bracket a little larger. For this reason, when installing the slider on the driver's side, I would suggest fitting the front bracket first to see if the hole lines up. since if it doesn't you will need to remove the slider to make hole larger. You don't want to figure this out after you have the other bolts installed. There are two 12 mm holes you need to drill into the frame. I presume you can use a 1/2" drill bit for these, but I used a 31/64" drill bit. You will need about a 5" long drill bit to drill these holes. My standard length drill bit was too short, so I ended up having to buy a longer one just for this. If you buy these, you will not regret it once you get them installed. I hope my suggestions help you.

Great Product, Minor Flaws
I love the look of these and wear they mount onto the Jeep. I haven't tested them on rocks or anything but they can really mess up other people's doors is they carelessly swing them open, and I don't have a scratch on them! My only complaint is the fitment during install. One side went on in about a half hour, but on the other side, the brackets welded to the slider and that bolt to the frame were not all welded on the same angle. This made it extremely difficult to get any of the bolts in, and I discovered that a few were too short. I made one run to the hardware store, and then I managed to make it all work. Overall I'm very happy with the product, just a frustrating install.

mini boat sliders
I have spent the last 2 months looking for a sliders that would fit my needs and let me tell you there are so many choices out there I still probably didn't see them all. The most importance thing for me that them were to be frame mounted so the sliders would take all the impact and not the body. Second I wanted to cover and protect the side of my frame as much as possible so started looking at boat sliders. Man was I excited when I found the TJM sliders. It was everything I was looking for plus they were half of what I was planning to sped. I would discrible them as mini boat sliders. From someone that has bought sliders in the past for my last vehicle it should not be this easy. Last ones it took weeks to get, I had to pay for shipping and pay extra for powder coating. Non of that happened this time. Sliders were already powder coated and you get free shipping from Extreme Terrain. Anther cool thing about TJM is that they build in a place for a hi-lift to lock in their sliders and bumpers. Now here is the kicker, I don't know if was the fact that they were in stock and we are both on the east coast by I got them in less then 23 hours! The mounting is 95% bolt with one 1 bolt the has to be drilled. The instruction could be better and there could be more pictures with the instruction, but was still a easy install.
