Rock sliders

Yes I've heard of them, been around for a long time. They were only on my radar for Suzuki and Toyota offroad stuff. Never knew they had anything for full size trucks and no experience with any of their body armor. They sound really good and certainly stronger than the factory "steps".

@StrokinOut are they a reputable company?

My experience with them is too limited. They are a distributor of some brands I used to like for Toyota's. I would think with the amount of time they have been in business that they are reputable, but I can't honestly say for sure one way or another. Reviews look good and bad. I have seen some in the Ranger forums using their rock sliders and speaking well of them.
 
I had white knuckle off-road rock sliders on 2 rams, one being a power wagon. Those look like a copy of the white knuckle sliders. Sliders greatly protect your truck from damage in extreme off road conditions. These should clamp to the frame, only downside, lack of a step.
 
@Explorerinil does white knuckle make sliders for the superduty ?
 
Had White Knuckle on my Power Wagon as well. Tough as hell. Rocky Road Outfitters use to be real scumbags - not sure if the same guy still runs it.
 
I am in the market for rock sliders too and these are the only ones I have found so far. However, that web site of theirs doesn't exactly instill confidence...

I do not see any on their webiste, I bet if your interested and called them they would make a set. They are a small shop that goes out of their way to help. They custom built a set for me to clear carli radius arm brackets, they even found a local person with a carli suspended ram and test fitted them on his truck. Great business with honest people.
 
I’d like rock sliders but also if they doubled as running boards with enough width to step on.
Could not agree more with this statement.

Only way I could do it. No one would be able to get up in the truck otherwise.
 
Only one transaction with RRO, which was a spacer lift kit for my WK2 Jeep Grand Cherokee (2014) and they delivered, no issues.

RRO doesn't have any installation photos of the "sliders". If they mount to the cab without bolting to the frame, it's still just a running board.

Then it wouldn’t be a true slider, they are meant to be tucked up high and protect the rocker panels and not be a step, but you may be able to use them as a step.
 
Just had a nice conversation with White Knuckle. I'll post here with any details that come from it after they chat about things on their end, etc.
They are good people to work with and build amazing products. I bet they will get something for the superduty platform.
 
Here’s whatI got from RRO
The frame mounting holes are insufficient in strength unless you want to drill a bunch of new holes and make it like swiss cheese.

Our kits mount to the reinforced side impact panels running under the bed cab. These reinforced panels, along with our large mounting plates and the entire system being welded and integrated into the main rock slider bars make this mounting system incredibly strong. We can pick up the truck using a forklift. You won't find any other rocker bars on the market that can do this. Those reinforced crash panels are far stronger than most people realize and so make the perfect mounting system if done correctly.

The factory steps are pretty lightweight, but that is not because of their mounting location, but rather the nature of the bar design.
