Rocky Road Ford Ranger 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 Ford Ranger Rock Sliders 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.
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 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 rock sliders are very simple to install and are completely 'bolt on'. Our rock sliders mount on the sub-frame as well as along the body seam.
Not mounting along the entire seam causes extreme stress with the leverage of an impact on the outer rocker itself. Our design distributes the load across a broad area instead of focusing it on small spots.
You'll find our rock sliders very attractive and will blend in nicely with your stock flares and moldings. Most all will run fender to fender and many folks have commented on their very OEM (factory) look. We tuck them very tight to the body to minimize the possibility of getting hung up. Rocky Road kits tuck up tight! Our rock slider kits offer better clerance than any other kit on the market.
All kits come in a sturdy, durable, and very attractive black powdercoat electrostatic and baked powdercoat finish.
Rocky Road Rock Slider kits are not the flimsy light duty step bars, which are sold by every other 4x4 shop.
Our kits mount solidly to the frame for the new 2019+ model kits.
Cheap mounting screws and clips used by our competition.

The other rocker "guard" kits we have seen use a very light duty screw and clip mounting system which is pictured at right. If you think those screws and small clips are going to protect your truck when it is dropping down onto a rock or stump... think again!
Rocky Road Rockrails have been installed and reviewed always with the highest marks by offroad magazines, websites, chat forums, etc. Our various Rock Slider kits are the strongest, most heavy duty, and most protective bars on the market, with best mounting system, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend.

Rocky Road Superslider
RRO Kicker Rock Sliders
RRO Full Cover Kicker Sliders
These rocker bars offer all the strength and warranty of our regular Ford Ranger Rock Sliders, but with the added bonus of an additional upper tube. This upper tube can provide even more protection against sliding into rocks, trees, or other trail hazards. 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 and the Kicker Sliders feature a Diamond Plate rear. Each Super Slider kit mounts identical to the standard Ford Ranger Rock Slider 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 Rock Slider, 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!
In a nutshell, if you want the very best, you have found it.
