Rocky Road Super Sliders installed
 
I realized i didn't this over here.

Finally got around to taking some pix and video of the new rock sliders. The install was pretty strait forward. These do require you to drill into the uni body which wasn't to difficult. Except, I didn't pay attention on the passenger side when drilling one of the wholes and the alignment was off. I was able to save it though.

Once you drill the wholes you then have to use self tapping bolts which took some muscling to get them to catch. I recommend pulling off the slider after drilling the wholes and use the drill and whiggle it around a bit to make the whole slightly bigger. Then once you get the bolt to catch on all the wholes pull it out then put the sliders back on and bolt everything down.

I did this all by myself but could have used another set of hands. It does take pressing really hard on the self tapping bolts to get them to catch. I'm 6'4" 260 and it took me pressing as hard as possible.

I'm a dope so excuse my ignorance but, won't you need more rail protection behind the front wheel? ...and in front of the rear wheel?

No, you're right. They don't provide full coverage but that's not really a concern for me. I'm concerned about bottoming out/high centered. That is pretty much only going to happen in the area that is protected. If money wasn't a concern I'd probably got the Mopar rock rails but these were $350-$400 cheaper and fit my needs.

If you look at the 3:02 mark in the video below I bottom. You can't see the side it happens but on the passenger side you can see how close the now protected area is to making contact with the obstacle.

Nice looking GC bit50, I actually found your "wk2 offroad" video on YouTube a few weeks ago, before I even found this site. I just commented on it "Post more videos!".

Anyway, I was wondering if you had just the RR 2.5" lift, or if you got the Control Arms as well? Thanks.
