Rocky Road T100 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 T100 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 ofer about as much protection to your vehicle as a Nerf toy product would.

Notice the excellent side protection from the Superslider kit. Tucks up nice and tight to the body too for maximum clearance.
A good number of the T100 Rock Sliders we sell are to those who have actually bought these thinner bars and have bent them up. Even slick looking dual tube designs that appear to offer better protection are still only made from 1/8" steel on the slider tube and will bend on a hard impact.
Our T100 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 50 tons and we can't even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!

Note how the sliders blend into the body lines. NOTHING looks better on your truck than Rocky Road!
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 rockrails 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. Installation is made easier on many of our kits 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.
You'll find our T100 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.

Another view of the Supersliders. Excellent factory look, but strength far superior to anything else out there.
All kits come in a sturdy, durable, and very attractive black powdercoat electrostatic and baked powdercoat finish.
Our Rockrails have been installed and reviewed always with the highest marks by offroad magazines, websites, chat forums, etc. Rocky Road Rock Sliders are the strongest, thickest, and most protective bars on the market, with best mounting system, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend.
In a nutshell, if you want the very best, you have found it.
Pictured at left is our new Kicker Rock Slider.
Offers additional protection like the Superslider kits, also with a wider back for better step access,
and also features a Diamond Plate cover in back.

Standard Rockrails do not have the additional round tube bar. Our regular Rockrail kits consist of the main 2x2 square slider tube. Same great strength, tight fit, protection, just without the additional outer tube.
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!
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 can sometimes be a few weeks turnaround time. Please bear with us and understand sometimes the best things in life take just a little longer
