F-150 Rock sliders shown on the Ford Raptor
Question 1... do you want lightweight sliders which are for show? OR ones that will last, and protect? Yes!
Question 2... do you want blunted ends on your sliders? So that they ram onto rocks instead of sliding over them? Slide please....
Question 3... do you want to be able to use a HiLift on your sliders? Yes!
Question 4... do you want your rock sliders to be a TRUE Rock Slider at a price that you can swallow? Of course yes!
NOTE: Our engineered mounting system simply cannot be bent or damaged.
We pick up these trucks with forklifts with our rock sliders. The kits are mounting to heavily reinforced structural panels on the vehicle, and the mount system is stronger than any simple frame mount setup on the market.
It is a more complex and well engineered mounting system than a simple frame mount and our lifetime guarantee backs that fact up!
Rocky Road F-150 Heavy Duty Rock Slider kits tuck up tight! The factory kits have these flimsy low hanging brackets. Why? Our rock slider kits as good or better clearance than any other kit on the market as shown in the photos at left, the frame sits down lower than our rock sliders!
All photos at left display our Kicker style Rock Sliders.
These kits have the special Kick-out section in the rear, which make an excellent step as shown in our photo.
They stand off a few inches from the truck to protect not only offroad, but also in parking lots with errant doors!
Lower middle pic shows our Forklift test. The strength of our mounting system is 2nd to none. You can pick up the
truck with our rock slider kit. No other step/slider kit on the market can do this!!

Our Heavy Duty Rock Slider kits are NOT the light duty 'show' bars... which are sold by every other 4x4 shop.
Most other "rocker slider" kits are made from 1/8" wall or thinner material.... truly flimsy.
Don't group our kits in with those flimsy tube 'show' bars, as those will bend on a hard impact.
As pretty as some of those Raptor kits may look, when push comes to shove, and rocks come to crunch, those kits will will bend.... and many times, they'll shove themselves up into the body causing vehicle damage when they do collapse.
Our 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 goes to 100 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 vehicles and neither should you!

Our rock sliders are very simple to install and are 'bolt on' with no welding or metal/plastic cutting at all.
These kits are 100% bolton and can be installed by anyone.
Instructions outline the simple bolton process for installation. Save money doing it yourself and you'll be shocked at the short installation time!
In a nutshell, Rocky Road Raptor/F-150 Rock Sliders are the strongest and thickest bars on the market, best mounting system, numerous superior engineering points.
Why wouldn't you get a set???
We have been asked about the mounting strength of the bolts used in our mounting system...
The bolton system is stronger than most people think.
Each bolt has a breaking strength of 318kgf !!
KGF is equal to the amount of force required to accelerate 1kg at a rate of 1 meter per second. Put another way, each bolt requires one or more impacts of 700lbs to break it. The truck is using 9 mounting bolts per side to attach the rock slider which comes to a total impact load of 6,296lbs to break all of the mounting bolts. The ENTIRE weight of your truck on average is 5,000lbs.
So yes... our kits can hold one side of the truck if it comes down on a rock or stump.
If you have any questions or concerns at all about our mouting system and would like a discussion on this, please email us. There are some incorrect beliefs out there from well-meaning, but ill-informed Ford owners about the strength of various mounting systems, and we are very happy to discuss this from an engineering standpoint.
PLEASE NOTE: 2015-2020 model F-150 will have either 2 factory mounting stations along the body, or 3 factory mounting stations.
Do NOT go off your current running boards to identify which you have. You MUST look under your truck and visually inspect if you have a 2 or a 3 mount location setup.
This must be correctly identified before we manufacture your kit.
PLEASE look directly at your truck, NOT at whatever running boards you have at this time. Email us if you have questions.

This photo shows a comparison between our kit (on the right), and our competitors' "rock slider" kits (on the left) for Ford.
You can see they're using soup-can metal for their step slider systems. This should in NO WAY be considered a true
rock slider. The factory steps are the same weak material. Basically every other kit on the market calling itself a
"rock slider" is using the same tin can metal... except for Rocky Road.
This is why our kits are indestructible!
