Advice on Rock Rails

If it was me I would go for the rock hard patriot. They look like they don't hang down as low as the roam ones. They both look like they are frame mounted so that will be stronger than just the pinch seam.

Have you thought about the LOD Signature Series JL Rock Sliders. Frame mount, decent step and reasonably priced. I just ordered mine so I can’t speak from experience yet.

I have the LOD signature series on my JK and they are great!

I ran the Roam steps/sliders for a couple years before upgrading to the LOD Signatures this Summer. Roam makes a decent product at a nice price.
It just depends what you're gonna do with the Jeep. If you do any hardcore stuff and plan on using the sliders, save yourself some money and go right to the LOD or something similar. The Roam design allows the steps to get pushed into the body much too easily. With the style of bolt-on mount they use they just aren't strong enough - not a bad design, just a fact. That's why I got rid of mine.

Edit: I just checked out the RH Patriots - nice sliders, but you'll have the exact issue with them as you will with the Roams = that design is gonna allow the slider to get jammed into the body fairly easily if you use them or come down hard on them.

Something else - the LOD's are more expensive, but they also weigh double what the Roams did.

I keep looking at sliders that will work with long arms but anything stock mounted does seem like it'll push into the body, lesson learned on the JK.

glad the LOD's I posted didn't sell, looks like I'll be learning how to weld
