"If only the Titanic had these on."
Rocky Road's Equator 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.

All other kits on the market are just show bars, or 'steps' and made from thin 1/8" wall or thinner material. They're often referred to as Nerf bars. an appropriate name since they will ofer about as much protection to your vehicle as a Nerf toy product would.
Our Suzuki Equator Rock Slider kits 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 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! 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!

Our Equator Rockrail and Superslider kits are very simple to install and are completely 'bolt on'. Our Rock Sliders mount directly to the factory bolt holes so no drilling is required.
Rocky Road Suzuki Equator Rock Slider kits also feature our Super Slider design which is the second outer slider tube for extra protection from the side AND a great step for accessing roofracks and such. This tubing is made from 100% DOM and is strong beyond belief.
You'll find our 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.
HEY EQUATOR OWNERS, we also have lift kits, bumpers, locker kits, and more great offroad parts available for this truck! Check it all out by clicking

Pictured at left is an example of an engineering detail of the Rocky Road Rock Sliders kits over others on the market.
This just helps demonstrates one of the many superior engineering points in our system.
Notice the top picture at left 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 left. This is from a competitor. We have lower prices, yet 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 advantages the Rocky Road kit offers... but there are many more.
The extra slider tube up top on our kits also offers additional side protection on the trail and off the trail. Can be used as a jack pooint for Hilift, also makes a nice step up to the truck. Excellent protection for on and off-road!
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!

Rocky Road Equator Rock Sliders are simply the strongest, thickest, and most protective bars on the market, with best mounting system, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend.

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