  1. Rock Rails Thread

    Gave up on waiting for ROAM or LoD step sliders and pulled the trigger on the Rock Hard 4x4 Patriot Series angled up sliders. Ordered from Quadratec. Really like how they cover the pinch seam, appear to be very solid construction and don't break the bank ($701 with tax and free shipping). Will...
  2. JP's Super-Duper-Gladiator Build Thread

    Ouch!!! Hope you get it done right this time. I've had 3 re-gears done, all by the same reputable 4x4 shop (2 on the JK, one on the JT). That's one procedure where a knowledgeable mechanic is worth his weight in gold. Good luck!
  3. Rock Rails Thread

    I like the way they follow the lines of the fenders. The RockBlokz stuck out farther than I cared for. Yes, that means more protection, but they looked like an obvious ad-on instead of blending in with the stock fenders. I also considered the WeatherTechs, but didn't like how the lower part...
  4. Rock Rails Thread

    The top two are the rear flaps. The cut-out is for the exhaust pipe on the driver's side.
  5. Rock Rails Thread

    Perfect. Thanks! Got them on Amazon: Rear ones went on easy. Fronts took a little figuring out as not all existing plastic rivet/fastener holes lined up. Once I figured out where I needed to drill...
  6. Rock Rails Thread

    If my wife tried that (she's 5'-4") she'd probably end up in the hospital :LOL:! I like the design of these, but would be concerned that a rock could damage the steps when off-roading. Otherwise nice looking product. Affirmative. Could you get a close up of the front of the rail from the...
  7. Rock Rails Thread

    I encountered the same noises when installing the ACE Sliders on my JK, but being ignorant of the potential problem at the time just went ahead with the installation (in the parking lot at my apartment, my current house was being built at the time). Luckily nothing broke. I wonder how many...
  8. Rock Rails Thread

    Are they installed yet? How about now? Now? If you were in Denver, I'd probably offer to help! Are they angled up or down? The angled up version look like a one piece equivalent of adding the Ace Sliders to stock Rubi Rails. I had that combo on my 2014 Wrangler and liked it allot.
  9. Rock Rails Thread

    Their website says only 1.5" difference.
  10. Rock Rails Thread

    SERIOUSLY!!! :angry: I thought ROAM was close last December, and per a previous post in this thread would be actively working on them by now after getting other products out of the way. Major disappointment. Now what to do? Wait another month or so for the LoD Armor Lite rails, or choose...
  11. Weld Off-Road Gladiator Build [SEMA 2019]

    Anyone recognize the brand of rock sliders on this SEMA build? Wouldn't mind finding out more about them.
  12. Moab Run for JT only - Who's Down?

    I would probably be down for a return trip to Moab in my JT, depending on dates of course. Only time I was there was last May in my 2014 JKUR, and unfortunately the weather was awful 80% of the time (cold, wind and rain). Made it on a few easy-moderate trails, and managed to visit Arches and...
  13. Jeep Gladiator Mojave vs. Ford Raptor

    Agreed. I'll also admit to not minding driving around in a premium model Jeep, although the primary reason I bought a Rubicon and then did mods is so I can get off-road with capability to spare. If I had no intention of 4-wheeling, I'd probably be driving an F-150 or Ram, loaded of course!
  14. Jeep Gladiator Mojave vs. Ford Raptor

    Yeah, I see allot of them (Raptors) here on the pavement, but almost never on off-road trails. They are overpriced and more of a mall crawling status symbol than anything else, IMHO.
  15. Rock Rails Thread

    The Shrockworks rails look like a quality product, although the one thing I'm not crazy about is that the pinch seam is left exposed more than I would want. Just a "looks" preference is all. On a separate note, that's quite a trick with the paint color in the photos, piroman683! Did you order...
  16. **ALL NEW** LOD Offroad Armor Lite Rock Sliders - Coming Soon!!!

    Or, you could move production of the JT armor lite sliders ahead of the JL and JK versions, since they have Signature and Destroyer series options available to them now, and we Gladiator owners don't have squat. Just sayin...:fingerscrossed:
  17. **ALL NEW** LOD Offroad Armor Lite Rock Sliders - Coming Soon!!!

    Hey LoD, can you confirm what material (plastic, aluminum, steel) the black step inserts in the photos are made of? Also, do you have a general idea of availability for these and the signature series for the JT? Some of us have been waiting since last November or longer for a product such as...
  18. Rock Rails Thread

    Gotta agree. I just really prefer the look and fit of the ROAM rails with the body and stock fender flares, like they were installed at the factory and not an aftermarket add-on. Wish they would provide an update on why it's taking so long to get them to production. I'd really like to have...
  19. LOD Offroad Signature Series Rock Sliders!

    Gotta agree with you on that point! Sliders should be bolted either to the frame (preferred) or at least to the original rock slider mounting locations. Nemesis Industries ( has all aluminum products, although right now they only have fender flares and a couple front...
  20. Rock Rails Thread

    Can't say I like the design of these better than the "Coming Soon ;)" rails by ROAM and LoD. Might be a fall-back option but otherwise still waiting for what I really want. Hope the employees at ROAM/LoD are practicing social distancing while they work!!!
