WTB: Rock Sliders

Want to buy some rock sliders for my 94 ST. I've never had rock sliders on either of my 90s. What are y'all's recommendations?

XD Rock Sliders

madcowdungbeetle has posted info on his. I put up an install of mine in the smaller projects section, "XD Rock Sliders Do Exist!!! Yay Carter". I had looked at a few in the area on other vehicles & it was the 3rd mounting point, an outrigger he made, that sold me. Super easy to install. Takes longer to remove the sills and the slag inside the factory outrigger than it does to actually install em. Wide enough to use as a step to get to the top.

depends on how you are going to use the truck.. if just needed as a jack point the RN will be ok if you are wheeling and need to use them as pivot or actually use them to slide on rocks then the Mad sliders will work well. you need to have as many points attached to the frame.

The attached pics are medium duty

I'll check out the Rovers North sliders. I'm in the Mississippi Delta. Not too many boulders here to slide over. I'm more worried about protection from logs and debris

I just had the Terrafirma rock sliders with nerf bars installed. They aren't the absolute most stoudt in terms of multiple mounting points but I really like them. Jacked the truck against them with absolutely no issues and really like the nerf bars to get in and out. Also think they look cool. Your mileage may vary and I readily admit there are designs with additional frame mounting points.

When you get a moment, will you post some pictures? I'd really like to see them installed. Thanks!

Has anyone thought about putting the sliders under the existing sill plate? Madcowdungbeetle's slider's look great and provide both rock and tree protection, as well as a step. The benefit for my ROW 90 is that it would also provide additional side protection to the fuel tank, as well as a step hieght more inline with the side steps/nerf bars.

Looks pretty stout. Great looking setup! Sharp looking truck in those "fancy" shoes she's got on. A LR "Defender Sport!" ;-) I imaging she's got some boots for when you're not driving around town.

Sorry to hi-jack a minute. I forgot to ask earlier about your shocks. You're height adjustable, right?

I recently bought the Terra Firma ones from Lucky 8. I'm happy with them overall but I think the nerfs stick out a little further than I'd like. For the price, its hard to beat them.
