    I'm not all that worried about price. The alum skid from Artec is 2k and I'm likely going that route.
    All I'm saying is that when looking at rock sliders, weight shouldn't be a criteria IMO. You want these things to be Stout and quality regardless if they're heavy.

    The signature series rocker or similar appears to be way overkill for me. The lighter model they offer appears more than adequate to drop the weight of the vehicle on a rock judging from the video and WAY better then the stocker which can take a good hit.

    IF someone has any experience with them to say otherwise that would be great.

    Stock JL skids are pretty crappy. And like I said I will be coming up on some hard core stuff no doubt, I'm just not seeking it out. I'm talking the crazy stuff. Golden Spike, Rubicon and many other trails will be done just not hard core stuff.
    Clearly you haven’t wheeled your jeep at all if you think the factory skids are crappy.

    DId you see the video? Do you have experience with that rocker? I get what your saying but I'm thinking there are rocker guards out there that will blow away the Signature series rocker too, and likely much heavier. At what point is enough enough?

    Weight is a killer for performance on and off road. If wheeling hard core trails where even the most protected vehicles get damaged, yeah you go with the best protection you can get despite the weight since the bennys outweigh the disadvantage of weight. But this isnt what I'm going to be doing.

    The Artec alum skid plate is a full belly plate. It's net weight is 10lbs. Their claim is it is stouter then metal. I dont believe it but it for sure it protects better then the stock stuff AND I get 3/4 inch more clearance.

    I have seen other full belly'd skids for close to 300 pounds. For what I'm doing there is an easy choice.

    LOL, No I havent done much at all with it since I know it wont do what I want yet.
    Have you seen the JL skids? Have you looked at any that have been wheeled? It's a pretty stupid design. Why would I wheel it thru nasty stuff with such a design, that would be silly.... Maybe my trail riding is harder then what others might be doing??

    Or maybe it isn’t. Yeah I’ve seen and been with JL’s that have and do wheel hard. Clearly you haven’t.

    Is there a real purpose for you posts. Do you derive jollys from it? Are you the same person in person? You say you are a smart ass but thus far I havent read anything smart at all. I think we could all benefit if you just buzzed away. If you'd like to change and to post something constructive all would be forgotten. I am hopeful.

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.
