Shopping for rock sliders??
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!!!!
Rocky Road's Frontier 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 else is just plain flimsy. Most other Frontier rocker sliders are made from thin wall material and a good number of the Frontier Rock Sliders we sell are to those who have bought these thinner bars and have bent them up.
We know, we've replaced many of them for customers as well. At 1/4" thick, ours are the absolute strongest rocker protection you can buy in the universe.
By far, the best and easiest on the market to install!
Read on below for more information on the mounting
We've had questions about the mounting system. Some kits mount to the frame for this vehicle.... bad, bad idea. Unless you are planning to weld the rock sliders to your frame and are skilled enough not to overheat and create more problems, after a few whacks, the bolts on frame mounted rock sliders will begin to loosen and tear out. The problem is that the frame is so far out from the point of impact, that leverage is fighting against you. Actually put those kits to the test and they will work loose and fail over time. Don't be duped, be smart... you can't fight leverage when several thousand lbs comes crashing down on a rock or log.
Our solid mounting system triangulates the mounting for a more durable and stronger system. Your truck also have a great deal of flex between the body and frame. Frame mounted rockers have to mount pretty low so that when this flex occurs, the bars don't hit your body paint. Our unique mounitng system allows us to tuck the Slider bars up higher for not only better looks, but also greater clearance.
The Frontier Rock Sliders have a very sleek rounded look about them as we use genuine inner hitch steel in their construction. Some kits go cheap on finish and just chop a square end on their rock sliders. Not only does it look cheap, but you end up with a blunt battering ram instead of a nice smooth rock slider.
We take the time to ramp the ends of our Rockrails so that they actually SLIDE over obstacles, not ram into them as with the competition's square end kits. We also use hitch steel in our construction which 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 only goes to 40 tons and we can't even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!
As you can see, totally awesome looking that integrates well with the factory body lines.
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!
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.
Some folks ask if they can handle a HiLift jack. HA! If a rock slider cannot handle a gentle upward push from a HiLift, how is it supposed to block an assault by a full body slam on a rock??? Our Frontier Rock Sliders can handle anything and everything you can throw at them and are guaranteed for life against denting or bending.
Tight fitting for maximum clearance while still giving a good zone of protection.

So if you want a flimsy mounting system that hangs too low and looks horrible with square ends... better shop at our competition. If you are looking for the best mounting system, sleekest look, smoothest trail profile, with maximum clearance, you have found the right place.
Now also available are the Rocky Road Super-sliders.
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 Super Slider kit mounts identical to the Frontier Rock Slider. 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 Sliders, only with the extra slider tube up top. We don't have pictures of the Supersliders for the Frontier at this time, but the basic look is the same for all so check out the pics to the right for a good idea on this awesome design.
Nothing protects like the Rocky Road Supersliders.
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 Nissan 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 Nissan.
Also check out our newest kits, the Full Cover Kicker slider. Picture below!
NOTE: Our Superslider kits angle upward off the main slider bar for superior clearance on the trail... see pictures above.
Our 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).
