Note how our kit tucks high and tight for a true factory look and finish.
Note how our kits keep the rocks OFF your body, and don't allow them to smash into the side of your body.
NO ridiculous low hanging bars to bang everything on the trail...

There are so many rocker guard kits on the market... it's insane.
There are only a couple TRUE ROCK SLIDER kits for the Gladiator though, and the Rocky Road kit is the best.
Rocky Road sliders are THE ONLY kits you will find which is strong enough to be lifted by a forklift (see pictures). Everything else on the market is a step and/or decorative!

Say NO to imposters and poser rock sliders. ONLY TRUST YOUR JEEP to Rocky Road!!

Question 1... do you want cheap sliders which are for show, or ones that will last, and protect? Yes!
Question 2... do you want blunt ends on your sliders? So that they ram onto rocks instead of sliding over them? Slide....
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 keep rocks OFF and AWAY from your body, unlike the angled bent-steel rocker kits on the market? Of course yes!
Question 5... and for the love of God... Do you really want to bolt a thin folded plate right to your side panels? NO!!!!

gladiator rock slider kitThese are the most basic questions in shopping for rock sliders.
The BEST kit, the BEST protection for your Jeep, is not the cheapest.
Yes, you can find cheaper and more poorly designed sliders than Rocky Road, but RRO Gladiator Rock Slider kits are the best built in our industry, lifetime guarantee, ramped ends instead of 'ramming' ends, strong enough to easily handle a Hilift jack (whereas most others will not), triangulated mounting systems, easy bolton, powdercoat finish, available in several different styles and levels of side impact protection.

People ask if our kits can handle a Hilift jack...
That's the bare minimum a true set of rock sliders should handle!

Our Superslider and Kicker style rock sliders provide perfect jack capability,
and excellent side impact protection. NOTHING on the market is stronger!

Gladiator Rockrail and Rock Slider kits

We use Hitch tubing, 3/16" thick. As an undeniable fact, NOTHING on the market is stronger than our Jeep Rock Sliders. Many other rocker bars are made from thin 1/8" wall material. With the width of our hitch grade tubing, the thickness of the 3/16" steel, nothing on the planet is beefier. We're so confident you could NEVER even hurt our Rockrails, that we offer a lifetime guarantee. If you can bend or dent one, we'll replace it.

Go ahead and try all you want, Rocky Road Gladiator Rockrails are undamageable.

Key to the overall strength of our rocker bars (beyond the super thick tubing) is the mounting system. Most rockers are just reshaped angle steel which only bolt to the body. These look good pictured on a website, or maybe parked in a parking lot. Take a sledgehammer and whack it though, it will dent in... ours will not.
So which is stronger on the trail.
Are you going for the prettiest SHOW-Jeep? Or the Jeep with the best protection for trail hazards???

Photo collage at left from Worthams Garage, shows closeups of our Kicker style rock slider,
which are IDEAL as a step into your Jeep, as well as giving the best protection
of any rock slider system on the market.

Our Superslider and Kicker rockers not only protect the corner area of your Jeep, but also stand out from the side to offer a good buffer zone to keep your body off the rocks.

You'll find Rocky Road Rockrails very attractive and 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.

Jeep Gladiator Rock Slider kit descriptons...

ROCK SLIDERS -- These rock slider kits offer a single main slider bar. They keep themselves tucked in nice and tight. No additional bars comign off the main rock sliders.

SUPERSLIDERS -- These kits offer our main rock slider bar (like above) with an additional outer bar welded and reinforced for more side protection. They also make nice steps for vehicle or roof rack access. The outer bars give some space for your Hilift jack to keep it away from the body. Really nice for additional side impact protection for offroad and for parking lots and errant doors as well. Superslider kits are available in our Flat-Out style, with flat outer bar, or with our traditional angled bar set which tilts the outer bars upwards from the main rock slider bar.

KICKER ROCK SLIDERS -- These kits are very similar to our Superslider kits with the additional outer bars, but in the rear they flare out a couple more inches. This has been extremely popular in Toyota circles for many years. The flared out portion in back is covered with a diamond plate section. Makes an excellent safe rear step, and platform for roof rack access. Same great under and side protection as our Supersliders, and the flare in back can help push the vehicle away from a trail hazard as you slide along it.

Full Cover KICKER ROCK SLIDERS -- These kits are the same shape and size as our Kickers, except that we have added diamond plate to the entire top surface of the rock slider kit. This is the absolute safest step system (great for kids and dogs with small feet).

Also the best working rock slider for use with a HiLift jack... on the market!


Forget those 'folded or bent' style rocker cover-ups out of thin 1/8" steel, they make for a good show, but if you want true protection... nothing keeps trail hazards and damage away like the Rocky Road Gladiator Rock Slider kits.

NOTE: Superslider kits angle upward off the main slider bar for superior clearance on the trail.
ur FLAT-OUT Superslider kits provide a flat Superslider option, for those who want a wider flat step off the vehicle (same position as our Kicker Slider kits).

PLEASE NOTE: Semi-Truck freight deliveries have changed and are no longer delivering to residential. These kits are too
large for FedEx/UPS and must ship to a commercial address, or a freight hub nearest your location for pickup, which we will arrange.
