    So far they’ve held up on the ones I’ve seen. I would still prefer frame mounted.

    I’m not a fan of body mounted sliders. I’d stick to frame mounted sliders.

    Had both. Went from frame mount to body mount and skins. Yes, the frame mount are stronger and IMO look better but I went with body mount for the step due to wife and kid. I have taken a few pretty good shots with the body mounts and one time so bad I immediately got out to check and was expecting to find damage but all I saw was a small scuff. I have been really happy with the body mounts.

    Apparently someone ran a truck into Mel's Body mounted Sliders this weekend in a parking lot. It looks like the slider saved the the body from damage, but the slider looks hammered in the picture. I don't think the Evo frame mounted sliders would have budged!

    Edit: Looking closer at the photo it may just be an allusion that the slider is bent.

    Looks like the bumper split on the slider. I bet the slider only has paint damage.

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.
