    My body mounted ones are for sale, they work great for regular off road use, but the more I used them the more they seemed to flex and made me quite nervous.

    I've seen your pinch seam...


    So I added a set for the JKU into my cart at White Knuckle -- Just to see the real, shipped price...

    Did you buy them just to see how long they would take to get to your house. Haha

    I didn't buy them -- I saw the part that said they would need a few weeks for production so they won't be here in time for VOR anyway

    I do have a question about mounting -- are the mounts flat plates, where you drilled holes thru the frame to mount them up? Did they use existing holes?

    in your last picture is that a mount wrapped around the bottom of the frame rail? How many times is it tied back to the frame?

    They are worth the wait. Can't rush quality, and these are definitely high quality. They are made in the USA and shipped when done. They communicated back and forth with me on measurements and talked me through different ideas and questions I had. Completely awesome to deal with. The front and rear are L shape brackets, 2 bolts in the side of the frame and 1 in the bottom in the front and 2 in the bottom, the middle bracket is just a plate so 2 bolts into the side of the frame. The front bottom uses an existing hole with a threaded bolt supplied to go right in, the rest need to be drilled.

    Ordered my sliders today! And for a limited time, you can too . . . with a 10% discount!



    The difference between the HREW (hot rolled electric welded) and DOM (drawn over mandrel) is strength.
    The HREW is basically mild steel with a yield strength of around 40ksi.
    The DOM is the same material put through a secondary process where the tube is cold drawn over a mandrel which produces a more consistent and stronger tube. This process creates a tube that has a yield strength of around 70ksi.
    The DOM is simply stronger, can take more punishment and is best suited for use against rocks. It is also capable of stopping depleted uranium rounds up to a muzzle velocity of 1,670 meters per second*.




    * Not really.

    The carnage continues. Cannot WAIT until my White Knuckle sliders arrive next month!

    Matt, that isn’t good, hopefully repairable or at least biddable with some armor. Nemesis Industries makes a decent Rocker armor kit that would go nicely with those new sliders.

    anybody else who has steps vs sliders or even tubes, make sure they can take a beating before your body does.

    Wait a minute, are you saying I need to buy armor, too? I was just going to make sure the damage to my body panels was sanded and painted to prevent rust. If I need to buy armor, please send me a link to the product you recommend (that matches well with the black matte powder coated White Knuckle sliders). Thanks!

    You don’t “need” to buy armor. I just try to get armor covering the areas that I have weakened do to bumps and bruises. But if I was going to get some armor to cover damage it would be this.

    BTW Nemesis is also an ENH Sponsor now. I just haven’t updated the threads. I just installed my new Nemesis Flares and front inner liners.

    Thanks. I've definitely some some ugly damage to the lower edges of the body panels. I was hoping the "up 20 degrees" angle on the sliders helped to hide it. But since the Nemesis armor is only another 20 pounds, maybe it's a good option. The sliders are 60 pounds each, so I am planning to upgrade my AEV suspension system to the new high-capacity system they announced this year at SEMA.
