I've narrowed down my rock slider choices to either the RTE Fab or Rovers North models. Rovers North is a good deal cheaper but I don't want to risk getting something that will not protect the truck just to save a few hundred bucks, either. Does anyone have any experience with either one and pics installed?

Also, RTE offers an option to add nerfs, are they that beneficial?

Thanks!

It's a good idea to mention what rover you are talking about. I too am interested in rock sliders for a 95 lwb. I hear they are hensteeth. I know there are custom made ones and maybe some of the other makes shops have the data to make one up for your vehicle.

I run the RTE ones on my 90 SWB. They are excellent. No nerf bars. I wouldn't mind having them on there to provide a step. I have a 3 inch lift.

The RN RRC sliders have jack points for a high lift, which is a nice feature. They also use outriggers tied to the frame in addition to the sill mounts. Priced much lower than the RTE sliders is a nice plus as well.

However, the real question you need to ask yourself is, how do you really use your truck? If your truck is just for light off-roading/overlanding, then the RN sliders should be fine. If you're more of a rock crawler, you may want to go with the RTEs.

I have the RN sliders w/ jack points and have no complaints, but then again, I'm not a rock crawler. I do like the way they follow the lines of the factory sills.

Just my .02.

Hm, not sure why the signature didn't show up. 94 SWB.

Pl, it's mostly a family trail rig. No hardcore rock crawling, but I'm in California so I'll be encountering reasonable size rocks on many trails. I lean towards the RN ones.

E36 - you should be fine with the RN sliders. Like I said before, jack points are great!

RN ones are probably fine. I have the RTE ones on my LWB and they've saved the sills countless times. I think it's worth spending a bit more on the RTE's for the extra protection, and they're great because they look like fairly stock skills.

I added your specs to your initial posting.
