    Rock Slider build

    Since my LOD Destroyers are... destroyed, and would need lots of fab work to fit with the EVO MFG Long Arms they gots to go. I looked at just about every frame mounted option available for the JL and I don't think any of them will work without extensive modification, I'm going to build my own.

    I torched the mounting brackets off of the LOD's and will try to reuse what I can, also picked up a 20 foot stick of 1.75", 0.120" wall DOM tubing to make the sliders with.

    I'm thinking if EVO can make production frame mounted sliders for the JL in three weeks, I should be able to get them done in three weeks too...

    Nice. I'm still surprised that there aren't more manufacturers making a frame mounted version yet.

    There are lots of frame mounted sliders available but none that will work with the EVO long arms

    Is the frame wall thickness less on a JL than on a JK? Could that be why there are less options?

    If there were frame issues then people would have issues with the long arms. I know of a few sets of the evo sliders that were made. My guess is they just don’t want to make them.

    I've seen one set on a certain JL a year or two ago and they look good. There must not be much of a margin in building these or they would likely have been out three weeks ago

    Good points. You’d think there would still be some demand. It wouldn’t need to be redesign, just adapt the JKs. I don’t know 🤷*♂️

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.
