Rocky Road 80 Series Rock Sliders are the creme' de la creme' of the rocker protection world. We use 3/16" inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything other than hitch steel is just plain flimsy.

Most other rocker bars are made from thin 1/8" wall tube material. Alot of shops refer to these as Nerf bars. an appropriate name since they will offer about as much protection to your vehicle as a Nerf toy product would.
A good number of the 80 Series Rock Sliders we sell are to those who have actually bought these thinner bars and have bent them up. Even slick looking dual round tube designs that appear to offer better protection are still only made from 1/8" steel and will bend on a hard impact. Not our 80 Series Road sliders. Our shop press goes to 50 tons and we can't even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!
Why hitch steel?
Why not go with a lesser gauge steel to save production costs?
Because we wouldn't trust anything less to protect our 4WD's and neither should you!

You won't find anything that offers better clearance or more protection!

Our 80 Series Rock Sliders have a very sleek rounded look about them as we use genuine inner hitch steel in their construction. Hitch steel is not only very strong, it also has a nice radius corner instead of a hard boxy look. Inner hitch steel is the stuff you use to plug into 2" receiver hitches. We've seen the competitor's sliders at $7-800 with squared ends on the rock sliders. Alot cheaper to make them this way, but ugly and they don't slide too well. You just bought $800 battering rams if they hit a rock on the forward edge. The engineering in our kits provides a beveled lead and trailing edge not only for great looks, but also for better trail service.
You'll find our 80 Series Rock Sliders very attractive and will blend in nicely with your stock flares, mudflaps, and moldings. We tuck them very tight to the body to minimize the possibility of getting hung up.
All kits come in a sturdy, durable, and very attractive black powdercoat electrostatic and baked powdercoat finish.

In a nutshell... if you want the very best rock slider protection, with the easiest installation, at the smartest pricing, look no further because you have found it!!!
Same great mounting strength and overall design as our Superslider kits, but with that extra rear kick-out section in back. For years these have been hugely popular with the Toyota guys, and now Rocky Road is finally bringing them to Cruiser people!

These kits offer superior protection, amazing good looks, and as you can see in the photo at left, the rear Kicker portion also features a Diamond Plate cover for a really cool look and the kit also provides excellent access for roof racks, as well as for use as a step into your Landcruiser.
Due to the dimensions of the 80 series rockrails and supersliders, the shipping amount calculated by the shopping cart may not be accurate. Please call for an accurate shipping amount. (888) 801-7271.
Please note: If you are using a control arm drop kit in the front you might have to modify them or the mounting plates on our sliders for them to be compatible. If you are using a caster correction kit you will not have any problems.
The world has discovered that Rocky Road parts are the absolute best on the planet. As a result of the somewhat overwhelming demand at this time for our kits, there can sometimes be a few weeks turnaround time. Please bear with us and understand sometimes the best things in life take just a little longer

Notice the top picture at right is a Rocky Road rock slider kit. See the beveled edge? The nice 45* ramp which would slide up and over any rock or stump on the trail? Its takes more time and effort to manufacture the kits this way, but that's all included with the Rocky Road kits.
Now take a look at the lower picture at right. This is from a competitor. We have lower prices, they they still cut their production costs by making the end a blunt square. Run that thing into a rock and you can clearly see the trouble you will face. Its a battering ram, not a rock slider. It could stop your vehicle cold or require you to bash away until something gives. Why would they build their kits with this engineering defect? Simple... its cheaper to manufacture with the flat end, so that's what they go with.
Also notice how much further down their kit hangs. Rocky Road kits tuck up tight!
This is one easily observed engineering advantage the Rocky Road kit offers... but there are many more.
