Rocky Road's Pathfinder 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 Pathfinder rocker sliders are made from thin 1/8" wall material and a good number of the Rockrails 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 3/16" thick, Rocky Road kits are the absolute strongest rocker protection you can buy in the universe.
Not also that our Rock Sliders and Supersliders kits tuck up tighter to the body than our competitor's kits. This gives a super-clean factory look and better clearance. Also, other kits just cut off the ends square (cheaper and easier to do) which not only is a bit ugly, but also means that your Sliders don't always slide up and over rocks and stumps. Those kits will just hit the trail hazard and come to a standstill. Our kits use great looking tapered ends which also are functional in that they slide up and over trail hazards.... not just ram into them.
We are often asked if the Pathfinder Rock Sliders can be used as a jack point.... OF COURSE! If rocker protection can't hold up to a gentle upward push from a jack, how in the world can they be expected to hold up to a body flop right onto a rock? The minimum standard for our Pathfinder Rock Sliders is that they can serve as a jack point... not to mention the body flop.

The Pathfinder 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 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!
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.
We made them indestructible so they'll last forever and they are guaranteed forever, NEVER to bend on you!

Our design distributes the load across a broad area instead of focusing it on small spots. Installation is made easier by use of factory holes in your outer mounting seam.

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???
The Pathfinder Rock Sliders can handle anything and everything you can throw at them and are guaranteed for life against denting or bending.
Notice the top picture at left 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 left. 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.
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. Supersliders also make an excellent step for access to roof racks and such.
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. We don't have pictures of the Supersliders for the Pathfinder 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. 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 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 Pathfinder.
