Opinion on Calimini products needed

Hey fellow zukers, I need your opinion on some zuk products from Calmini? What do you think of their rock sliders...anybody have experience with them? here is a link: http://www.puresuzuki.com/rocker_skids.htm
Also what do you think of the diamond plate rocker panels? link: http://www.puresuzuki.com/rockerpanels.htm

All opinions are wanted, just want to make sure I'm not wasting my money on some cheap stuff. Thanks.

Re: Opinion on Calimini products needed

I'm not sure how their stuff is since I don't have anything from Calmini.

How about just make your own sliders? Or have a local shop make some for you?

I've got some that I made out of 4x4x.25 angle iron that are tough as @#$*. It cost me about $50 in material. The additional cuts were done with a sawzall and then welded together and the holes drilled. Protection coverage is about the same as the Calmini combination you listed, but you don't loose as much clearance under the rockers.

I can't say anything about either product, but I can say I have always been taken care of by them... Ever since they were a little shop on the west side of the San Fernando Valley. But sometimes service comes at a price....

Re: Opinion on Calimini products needed

Mark,
It's good to here from you. On saturday I wheeled with some of your buddys in the tacomas, those guys rock. They got there rocker skids done at "bent up" in Sacramento. I saw that they use those rocker skids quite often, so I think that I should invest in some for my stocker. Anyway theirs cost about $225 to have them done, too much for me. I'm cheap, I know. Now I have their favorite saying stuck in my head, "give it the skinny!" That is so funny.

My Tacoma has stuff made by AJ on it (sliders, front and rear bumpers).

The angle iron sliders is the easiest and probably about the cheapest that you can put on a samurai. Mine have been hit hard and barely even have scratches in them.

Re: Opinion on Calimini products needed

I have the Diamond plate rocker panels, and they're solid I just don't feel safe with those rivets, one good bonk on a rock might shear them off, course the one good hit I did on em they survived fine. I got the steel ones and where I hit the rock it scraped the paint off so I had a little rust to deal with, I just ground it off mostly surface rust, and then spray bombed it with some black Rustoleum. Fixed up real easy. Would have been body damage without them!
