    Default White Knuckle Off Road Conversation Thread

    White Knuckle Off Road is now a sponsor of ExploringNH. Please consider them when making your off-road purchases. I will be installing a set of their sliders in the next week or so. They are located in Apple Valley California, so let's support another US based company. I will post up some install pics and videos and some wheeling pics and videos when I use them.

    The Nissan community also swears by them. Quick turn-around, bombproof. And the kick-out they add works great to pivot yourself around a rock or tree. They also have an option for tread plates. Really wish I had done the tread plates... would cut down on the sand-blasting the lower sides take...

    They can be added ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch do not ;)

    I have and can do it, though I am not saying I am the best mig welder out there, but my welds look good and penetrate, and I can show some of my work and you can be the judge ;)

    Paul did you ever put these on? -- I'm in the market and would love to see some better pictures than what is on their website -- Install pics?

    Thanks, Jer

    Yes. Working on an install write up. I will tell you that they are no joke. I am just under 400lbs and I stand on them and they don't budge. I had the entire Jeep sitting on the sliders, rock on each side and they didn't budge, we hi-lifted off of them and again, they didn't budge. They are SOLID and with all the weight of the Jeep sliding over rocks, they are scratched, not dented, not gouged just scratched. After a little touch up paint they will be back to looking new.

    I will try to get my install pics and some pics and videos of them being used posted up by the end of the day.

    I have jacked the truck up by just the kickout with a hi-lift (had to try out the new toy) and there was very little deflection. They REALLY hold up.

    These are up at a 20 degree angle and I am so happy I chose that as I don't think I would've been happy if they were straight. If you want to check them out I can meet up with you sometime.

    Paul we met a few weeks ago -- At the newb ride -- I'm the guy from Jersey -- asked about the battery pack on your belt -- My wife was behind the wheel most of the day -- JKU in Tank

    Anyway -- Most likely I'll have something before we meet again -- Thinking about going to the Vermont overland rally at end of the month and need to do a few things to give some protection -- Jersey Girl been asking for steps for awhile now -- even more so now that she may have a little offroad bug

    Are these drilled to frame mount or do they use the body mounts? -- Hard to tell from the pictures

    Any idea if white knuckle has any type of Labor day sale going? -- Forum discount?

    The White Knuckle ones are solidly mounted into the frame. The ones that piggyback off the body mounts will flex (I don't mean bend per se) at the body mount once you put the full weight of the Jeep on them, to the point they will make contact with the pinch seam. Ask me how I know this.

    I will be at the VOR this year. They are frame mounted, they are a bit lower then the body mounted setups, but they offer a perfect step for getting in and out and offer great protection. I have to be honest I am in love.

    I will email my contact at White Knuckle and find out.
