    Slider/Step for JK Unlimited

    Hello Everyone,
    I have finally bought my Dream Vehicle after many years of wishing & dreaming of A Jeep. 2015 Wrangled Unlimited Tank Green.
    I need some advice on choosing a Slider/Step for my baby.
    I do not plan on getting to aggressive off road, but something strong enough to help prevent damage, & allow a spacious step.
    What do you recommend?
    Thank you

    LoD or Evo are two quality brands that have a good step and are built right here in the USA. Ideally, securing them to the frame is the strongest mounting method. And although the LoD Signature Series can be bolted to the frame, you can also weld them on. The new LoD Destroyer Series I believe mounts to the body mounts.

    I have the LOD signature series sliders installed. See pictures attached. I had them welded on rather than bolted. I originally started to bolt but could not get them to line up on the passenger side. Likely user error, but rather than screw around with it I had both sides welded. No complaints at all about performance/protection. They certainly do the job and are fairly low profile.

    I have the LODs, but bolted not welded. They seem pretty solid. The step is nice, especially if you have a taller jeep.

    If you're not going to bang'em into rocks and want more of a step the ACE sliders are good. I had them, but after hitting rocks I sold 'em for weld in EVO. Worse step, but way better rock protection.

    A different step that is a bolt on that is not welded are the Rockhard boatside sliders. IMG_7615.jpg
    Very clean looking and a good functional step. I’ve hit them an number of times on rocks and barely a scratch, but I have not come down on them hard nor put the full weight on them trying to turn on a rock. But so far I am happy.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
