Re: Home grown rocker skids
In southeastern Oklahoma is a trail called Snake Pit. The current issue of 4WD&SU shows some of it and doesn't tell the half. It is not impossible but it is tough and it got the right side of my '94 YJ (the whole middle) in less than one second. And all of that was at less than a full mile an hour. The original step brackets and step and urethane flair extenders and all other attendent parts got wadded. That is O.K. No, really, it's O.K. What isn't O.K. is the tub sheet metal that got wadded. That is not O.K., acceptable, cool, kosher, tolerable or cheap. It didn't happen on the street in an accident or in a bad spill or some other similar mishap while wheeling. It just happened while normal wheeling. It will happen to you if you wheel. I lived on luck for four years and thought I was exceptionally skilled. HA. (Pride goeth before a fall.)
My point is to make your nerf bars, or whatever you call them, as strong as possible and that they be on the frame and not the body.
Just as soon as I get out of this apartment and back into a proper house(with garage) I will have some four purpose ones on my rig.
