    could someone tell me more info about these rock sliders? do they come with the steps??? do they make them with 2 steps, (like for both doors on my 91 suburban)??? how much and where can i get them? are they strong (the step part)??
    thanks for your help /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif i have seen rock sliders installed on a full size blazer, on this site, it had steps that come out when you open the doors, does anyone know anything about these???? thanks
    i made a mistake, i went back and read the whole article this time, the steps are removeable and held on with 2 pins going through the rock sliders,, sorry to confuse anyone.. if any one has any pics of these on a suburban with 2 steps on each side, id like to see pics of that,,, thanks again

    Check out 4x4 Irrons sight, can be found here, that will give you an idea.

    There can be several variations to this theme too....

    Are you talking about these?

    If so, those are made by 4x4iron, but as far as steps that actually swing out when you open the door.....never seen that happen before unless your talking about a standard rock slider with the drop down actuated step that works off the door hinge.

    I saw something like that once, steps that came down when you opened the door, but that was a few years ago.

    I've seen ones like what you are describing. They were made by a guy who owned 4x4 armor. He doesn't do that any more (poor health). You might be able to get some pics and have them made (at least that's what I'm trying).

    Here's a pic of mine. The step was a piece of cake to add to my sliders. The 5' wife needs a little help get in...

    I worked with Mike at Echobit (BorregoK5) and we basically modified an older design of his to get these. There are still a few issues up in the air. I will probably post a mini-write up once everything is done.

    I finally found a truck with the rockers like yours. I see what you mean now with the angled cab support. Looks like it starts on 87 and up GMC's. Swapping the sliders cab mounts to the opposite side might be the generic aproach. I've built a jig for them and I'm planning a test next week. Can't wait to see pics of yours installed though.

    I still would not use that style for hard use, just ask Sandman. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif The best route is to replace the rockers with 2x3 IMO.
