    Rock Slide Engineering Electric Step Sliders

    Placed order on Black Friday (15%). Hurts wife to get in and out with stock 10A sliders. Cheap enough to help wife into $60K Jeep when she otherwise may not go on rides. Some say that, if you need these steps, you probably don't need sliders. I'm sure that was what the well known mall crawler John Currie was thinking when he installed a set on one of his recent builds.

    I’m hoping these sliders I installed can take some abuse. They are aluminum!

    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.

    Like the Sliders!

    I wish there was more reviews out there on the Rockhard Boatside sliders. I like the clean look of them and they are HEAVY. I'd like a step to access my roof rack as I mostly do overlanding/camping and need a place to stand. The size of the step on the Rockhards is the width of the fenders. This width also helps with keeping the sides of the Jeep clean. Not really looking forward to putting nutserts into the body but I'll get over it.

    Check out the dv8 sr10 slider/steps. They are pretty stout, I've put the jeep on some rocks and they've held up pretty well, some slight dents which is to be expected. Good color choice👌

    Thank you!

    I love them. Hated the nutserts but after a the first one, it goes easier. I’ve rubbed them on trees and a couple rocks with minimal damage, just scratches. I have not yet dropped down hard on them yet, so I cannot speak to their resilience to damage there.

    They are very heavy and are great steps. Before the wider axles, they helped to keep the Jeep clean. Not so much afterwards. I recommend them.

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.
