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 look like a high school shop project, or a factory grade finished work of art? Of course yes!
Question 5... and for the love of God... Do you really want to WELD rock sliders to your vehicle? NO!!!!
These are 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 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.
Rocky Road Rockrails are the creme' de la creme' of the Jeep rocker protection phenomenon.
Rocky Road's Liberty Rock Sliders are the creme' de la creme' of the Jeep rocker protection phenomenon. We use 1/4" inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything else is just plain flimsy. Most other rocker bars are made from thin 1/8" wall material and a good number of the Rock Sliders we sell are to those who have bought these thinner bars and have bent them up. At 3/16" thick, ours are the absolute strongest rocker protection you can buy in the universe.
We received this picture of a Superslider equipped KK Liberty on the trail,
and the KJ Liberty behind him runs the RRO Supersliders too. That's one highly intelligent trail crew!

The Jeep Liberty 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?
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!
Rocky Road kits tuck tight and high for maximum clearance. Our Supersliders provide an additional outer slider tube as pictured. Great for extra side protection on or offroad.

Our rock sliders are very simple to install and are completely 'bolt on'.
They 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.
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.

Notice the top picture at right 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 right. This is from a competitor. Similar pricing for the rocker kits, but they 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 advantage the Rocky Road kit offers... but there are many more.
You'll find our Liberty Rock Sliders 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?
Rockrails available for 05+ model Libertys. Please make sure to note your year of Rockrail during purchase is it is a different product. Older model Rockrails will not fit properly.

These rocker bars offer all the strength and warranty of our regular Rockrails, 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. The Supersliders are replacing the Steprails that were once available.
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!
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.

Thanks for your interest in our Liberty components. The world has discovered that Rocky Road parts are the absolute best on the planet. As a result of the somewhat overwhelming demand at this time for our kits, there may be a few weeks turnaround time. Please bear with us and understand sometimes the best things in life take just a little longer
