Well, not impressed with the rock rails. They certainly aren’t sliders and appear to be bolted to the body and not the frame. Hopefully I can sell mine to someone getting a base model. Will buy a decent set of sliders once available.

Seems all the rock sliders i've seen for sale bolt to the body. 1/4" thick or otherwise
The ones I cut off my 69 were welded to the frame using 2x2 angle.

Yeah, hopefully N-fab or Warrior come out with a pair of frame mount sliders with detachable steps. 10”-11” is a lot lower than 14” but I’ll still get complaints, but want the steps off for clearance on the trail.

Well that just sucks. I knew the floor boards were to the body , but who the heck mounts rock rails to the body?

I'm wondering if you can even use them for jack points.

Manufacturing some good bolt on sliders is the first thing on my list for upgrades. Second will be HD skid plates that can handle landing on rocks.

Jeep does on the Rubicon, which is why people replace them with frame mounted sliders.

Body attached would be surprising, wouldn’t it? I took that screenshot from the video posted earlier, isn’t that a mounting on the frame?
