Rocky Road Compass Rock Sliders are the creme' de la creme' of the Jeep rocker protection phenomenon. We use 3/16" inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything else is just plain flimsy. Most other rocker sliders are made from flimsy & thin wall material. Not only is our system the only true Rocker protection kit available for your Patriot, they will ALWAYS be the absolute strongest rocker protection you could ever buy.
The Compass 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. Its sheer weight is astronomical as is its bending strength. Our shop press only goes to 40 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 Jeep and neither should you! Besides, since these carry the Rocky Road **lifetime guarantee**, we don't want to have to replace them for you for free every couple years or so.
We made them indestructible so they'll last forever and they are guaranteed forever, NEVER to bend on you!
Installation is made easier by marking strips which we include with every set. Instead of trying to juggle a 35lb rocker bar in place while you mark your holes, you simply clamp our thin steel marker strip onto the body seam and mark your mounting holes.

and apparently his wife Mary is quite happy too, since its HER Jeep we have been informed.
Make your Significant Other happy, just like John! :^)

You'll find the Rocky Road Rockrail kits are very attractive and will blend in nicely with your stock flares and moldings. They run fender to fender and many folks have commented on their very OEM (factory) look. They tuck tighter to the body than any other rocker on the market as well. In a nutshell, Rockrails are the strongest and thickest bars on the market, best mounting system, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend.
Why wouldn't you get a set?
Some folks ask if they can handle a HiLift jack. HA! If a rock slider cannot handle a gentle upward push from a HiLift, how is it supposed to block an assault by a full body slam on a rock??? Our Compass Rock Sliders can handle anything and everything you can throw at them and are guaranteed for life against denting or bending.
Don't take only our word for it though. Do some investigation on our Compass Rock Sliders and you will find numerous print magazine and online E-zine editor's rigs running (and reviewing) Rocky Road Rock Sliders on their own rigs.
Everyone who has seen these on our shop 4x4s has wanted a pair. They are unequaled in strength and looks. They also make an excellent step for access to roof racks and such.
Each Super Slider kit mounts identical to the standard Rockrail for the vehicle. It also still features that great looking 45* front and rear edge. Not only good for looks, but alot more practical for trail use than our competition's squared off ends. This is basically the same proven design as our world famous Rockrails, only with the extra slider tube up top.
The extra slider tube up top offers additional side protection on the trail and off the trail. One of our favorite uses of the Superslider is as a bash guard against other swinging doors in a parking. Imagine the dismay of the chump who just threw open his car door only to whack it on the solid steel of your Superslider. He just stuck a nice dent in the edge of his door, your toy still looks cherry!
Jeep Compass Kicker Rock Slider kits!
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 Jeep 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 Jeep.
Please note: We do need some cool pics of these on a Compass (any model). If you're the first to get back to us with some nice pictures we can use on oue website, we will provide a $50 refund back to you for the effort and as a Thank You.

Please bear with us and understand sometimes the best things in life take just a little longer
