    I have poison Spyder brawlers on my Jeep. I love them! I mean really really love them. But if you are gonna play hard. Just an FYI. I dropped onto my driver side pretty hard one time and they did bend/flex whatever you wanna call it. The skin above where she hit pulled a couple rivets out from being flush with the body. Otherwise I am happy with them.

    Look at LoD, Rock Hard (I think), or Poison Spyder for bolt-on options. I'm personally very happy with the looks and performance of my Poison Spyder bolt-ons.

    Yeah hard to tell with pictures. If you say the holes are not big enough to run bolts through to the frame then I guess that Idea is out the window. Even if you could run a bolt through the frame I don't think there would be enough room on pass side.

    The wholes in the flanges are plenty big for bolts, probably 1/2" or larger. Pre drilling and running bolts through the frame would be an absolute pain in the ass, and would be less sturdy than welding.

    Ok that make sense. I tend to change my mind a lot so this is why bolt on would be better for me, but I do understand what you guys are saying. If it has not been done or should not be done then welding them on it is.

    Trust me, welded on you will not be disappointed. There are lots of great bolt on options out there if you have commitment issues

    After looking at a few of the other installs of bolt on styles it looks like you need to drill and tap quite a few holes. Because I have the recon rock rails now I figured others would bolt on similar.
    Hell, if I got to drill 10-12 holes in the frame for bolt on's, I would be better off trying that with the EVO's. But like always, and because you guys have kept me in the right lane since the beginning I will find a friend who can weld or just take to a shop to do so and beat my commitment issues .

    You won’t be disappointed. Now you have to decide between the high angle or the low angle

    I think you only have to drill one hole on each side unless you're gonna do the boatsides. But you can't go wrong with the EVO sliders if that's the route you choose. 👍

    I’m also considering doing a full swap of rails and skins to Evo . Have barricade rails on top of my Rubicon rock rails now . Thinking getting rid of both and doing skins and weld on sliders may get me more clearance and be better structurally

    Why not weld on the EVO's and if you don't like them down the road, you can cut the legs off. I guess it might be an issue if a set of bolts on ones landed in the same place on the frame rail though.

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.
