Rocky Road SuperSliders

Is anyone running the Rocky Road Outfitters Supersliders on their wk2. I'm between those and the Mopar ones. Mopar seems to have full coverage of the entire side, I jst havent seen enough pictures or reviews of the Rock Road ones. Plus the mopar ones are super expensive. Or if there are any other rock rails out there that are worth it.

Thank you.

Re: Rocky Road SuperSliders

This isnt my car but it's one of the only posts/videos I found with a clear view of how the Supersliders look installed.
Only thing that worries me is the crooked bolt which makes me think the mounting holes are off.
I'm considering these myself for added protection but would like to see them on an Altitude or Overland.

I would never install a rock rail that involved taking off my side skirts since I don't intend to use them offroad.

Re: Rocky Road SuperSliders

Do youtube sear for wk2 Hollister Hills, the guy has a couple videos running RRO Rock Rails. Also search here for "black Widow" build. Guy has many pics With rro rails.

Some don't like that the RRO do not extend from wheel well to wheel well but I like them and see manu benefits. I don't do extreme stuff so shorther coverage not an issue. Plus I like they don't stick out far, Mopars do. I also like look of keeping stock lower panel inplace, the RRO are made to fit between curved down edges.

Uneek in Australia has really nice set with and without step but are very expensive.

To each his though....good luck.

Re: Rocky Road SuperSliders

I see what you mean about the crooked bolt. But in the video it sounds like he says you have to drill those holes yourself into the body. I don't know if that's true or not though. The more I see them the more I like them over the mopar ones.

Just noticed it was the installers poor measuring skills.
Measure twice and drill once. I may need to add these in the future.
I would need to verify they don't interfere with the skid plates first.

Re: Rocky Road SuperSliders

I installed the RRO super sliders a few weeks ago. You have to drill 4 holes on each side for self tapping screws. You'll also have to drill a hole in one skid plate that overlaps one of the support brackets. I made a template out of cardboard to mark the skid plate.

They seem sturdy and fit under the plastic rocker panels. I like the look of the full length Mopar rails, but they are pricey. I figured if for some reason I damaged the plastic rockers then I'd have a good excuse to change to the Mopar sliders.

I also have seen nothing but bad reviews about RRO. However, I haven't had any issues with them. I also installed the winch mount which is well designed and was very easy to install.

I installed the RRO super sliders and diamond cover plates on my KL Trailhawk a few weeks ago. I love em! Should have been on the Jeep from the start.

A few pics
