You have any pics?
Three shots, tonight in the garage.
You can see that the rails sit flat against the bottom of the rocker panels, just like factory rails, but also sit against the quarter panels for maximum support.
Middle pic shows the very solid primary frame to slider mounting. And how they dog leg up to sit flush with the rocker panel and bolt on there.
You can also see that they are true boxed 3/16" steel.
Ain't light like the custom made stuff.
But not flexi flyer like most so called rocker protection either.

Defender 90, RRC TDi, 200 series
Body mount Sliders are a non-starter for me, I have seen enough of those damage trucks with a good hit.. Hell even my Frame mount sliders on my Defender damaged the fenders after an over aggressive hit last year. Nothings perfect but solid frame mounting is far superior.

My defenders sliders are coming off this winter to fab up another mount (4 total instead of the current 3), that and I am upping the wall thickness as well on the 2x4 main portion.

I'm looking forward to what white knuckle off road can do with sliders as well as other aftermarket companies. From the factory mine will come with nothing and plastic bumpers to start with.

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?

I see a lot of cheap sliders that bolt to the body, but plenty of good ones that bolt to the frame. They should also be as wide as the tires, or close to it.

These are what I have on my Tacoma:http://sosoffroadconcepts.com/05-15-tacoma-100-frame-bolt-on-sliders/
I also had SOS Offroad Sliders on my Tacoma and I have them on my ZR2 now. SOS used my ZR2 to build the first set and also built my front bumper.
I hope they can use my Bronco to start another new product line. 🤞
