    BOMBS AWAY : EVO Bomber Rocker Guards w/Skins for JET

    While we were happy with the rocker guards that we had been testing out on our JL Wrangler for the better part of a year, Cindy and I felt that it was time to test out something new. Needless to say, we contacted our good friends over at EVO and got hooked up with a set of their Bomber Rocker Guards and complete with skins. Now, I should note that it'd been a long time since we've run anything but frame mounted rocker guards and mainly because we've had such little faith in the thin skin of the JK and even thinner one on the JL. However, there are definitely benefits to a body mounted rocker guard and that's the increased ground clearance you get from them. In any case, we decided to give these a try and here are a few shots of what they look like installed.

    Ohhhh sexy!!!! I have been waiting to see you post this since I saw a pict on Instagram. So why these over the weld ons Eddie? I am on the fence about grinding mine weld on's off because the wife really wants me to go this direction to make it easier for her to get in. I know there are stirrups out there but these are so damn nice looking.

    To add these are the best pictures of these sliders I have seen on the internet so far.

    Thanks! I'm hoping they'll hold up about as good as they look.

    We would have gone with weld on frame mounted rockers guards but they aren't available yet. That being said, we thought we'd give these a try to see how they'll do. EVO said that if we want, we can always change over to their weld on rockers later and the skins they offer for them will bolt up the same way.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
