As featured on the Lite Brite Studios 'Stepchild' Jeep Build -- Our Heaviest Duty Rock Sliders for the JT. We designed these to cruise down the hardest trails without a worry in the world!
If you want rock sliders you can bounce off of big rocks day after day, wheeling trip after wheeling trip, you'll care as much about what they're made of as what they're mounted to. That is why we mount these off of the frame and recommend *welding* them to the frame -- because unlike bolts, welds don't back out and come loose after vibrations or boulders.
These are made from a combination of 2" DOM Round Tube (120 wall) and 1/4"+3/16" laser cut steel plate that is CNC formed. The 3/16" laser cut steel plate that spans the distance between the 2 structural tubes is designed with minimal rock catching cutouts -- to provide a strong smooth surface that will slide over rocks and obstacles while still allowing for drain cutouts near the bottom. The lower tube can also be supplemented with a solid aluminum insert for added strength against the toughest drops. Inserts are made of 1.75" OD 6061 Solid Stock, and increase the effective wall thickness and strength of the rock sliders and make them practically impossible to dent.
Due to the gussets/reinforcements that prevent unwanted flex of the rock sliders, 4 small notches for clearance (using a cut and fold method) are required in the JT pinch seam.
Absolute beef!!!! Waited a few months and several trails before leaving a review. Stock sliders and quite frankly any sliders that are not frame mounted will get in to the body. The solution from NVM, when properly installed will never get in the body. The fit and finish is amazing, almost along the lines of a work of art. I just came off the Rubicon Trail and a spotter asked if he could use the slider to pivot, resounding yes with 100% confidence in this product.
Just had them installed, and they look amazing installed, cant wait to get them tested on the Rocks. Was worth the wait
Why next venture?
parts inspired by the trail
Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.
