    How wide is the step on the slider and do you know if the JL version is wider then the JK version? Can you get a good part of your foot on the step? How have they held up so far?

    Not real hard to install but a lot of steps for sure!

    What RESURECTIONJK said, they're frame mounted on Moby and we are running skins as well.

    Thank you! We're truly flattered that you would say as much

    Also how are they as a step?
    Actually, after spending a week in Moab and banging on them pretty damn hard, I'm happy to say that these rocker guards have held up surprisingly well. I literally hit them hard enough to click my teeth and other than some scratches - no problems and NO body damage. As far as them being used as a step goes, they work better than any tube slider I've run to date.

    It's a big part of why we got them. Love how they look.

    I don't know how wide the JK ones are but these seem to offer a decent amount of step or at least, for our needs. Also, they've been holding up surprisingly well and I do say surprising being that I wasn't too sure about them

    Teeth chatter is good, it means sliders are solid. I'll probably go with these for the step alone.

    I didn't use any on this video but will most likely add some when I get a chance. I just apply it to the edges and smooth it out.

    Finally watched this video. Those look sharp. The installation looked to be pretty time consuming..haha. Several more steps than the poison spider ones I have installed on my JK. I thought the comment about someone with big hands was pretty funny. I used the "tool" that came with the rocker guards which was as you described. It wasn't accurate at all and have one nutsert that spins. The astro tool sure made it go quick and easy.

“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.
