Rocky Road Outfitters - 2015 and Newer Long Wheel Base Crew Cab Rock Sliders.

Gloss Black, Wheel to Wheel (CrewCab Long Bed), Includes All Hardware

FOR LONG WHEEL BASE MODEL ONLY

LOCAL PICKUP ONLY [ITEMS ARE TO LARGE TO SHIP] San Bernardino, CA

DESCRIPTION FROM MANUFACTURER:

Rocky Road's Colorado Rock Sliders are the 'creme de la creme' for true rocker protection for the Chevy Colorado. Forget hacking together a makeshift Toyota kit that won't fit right, mount optimally, or even look halfway decent. These kits are designed for the Colorado/Canyon specifically!

We use thick inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything else is just plain flimsy. Most other "rocker slider" kits are made from 1/8" wall or thinner material.... truly flimsy. Don't group our kits in with those flimsy tube nerf bars as those will bend on a hard impact. As pretty as those chrome or black round tube jobbers may look, when push comes to shove, and rocks come to crunch, those kits will will bend.... and many times, they'll shove themselves up into the body causing vehicle damage when they do collapse.

Our Colorado/Canyon Rock Sliders have a very sleek rounded look about them as we use genuine inner hitch steel in their construction. Hitch steel is not only very strong, it also has a nice radius corner instead of a hard boxy look. Inner hitch steel is the stuff you use to plug into 2" receiver hitches. Its sheer weight is astronomical as is its bending strength. Our shop press only goes to 40 tons and we can't even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!

Why hitch steel?
Why not go with a lesser gauge steel to save production costs?


Because we wouldn't trust anything less to protect our vehicles and neither should you! Besides, since these carry the Rocky Road **lifetime guarantee**, we don't want to have to replace them for you for free every couple years or so. We made them indestructible so they'll last forever and they are guaranteed forever, NEVER to bend on you!



Colorado Rock Sliders... best on the market
Our rock sliders are very simple to install and are completely 'bolt on'. Rocky Road rock slider kits can be installed by anyone at home. No vehicle cutting or modification is needed. Instructions outline the simple bolton process for installation. Save money doing it yourself and you'll be shocked at the short installation time!

They tout the strength over and over and then give you a ziplock bag of self tapping screws to mount them with?

I agree with not being found of the self tapping screws, I planned on using different hardware myself.

The reason I decided to not install them on my truck is because they are simply too heavy and overkill for my purposes. I tend to tow a lot and my truck is mostly on the 405 freeway, not the Rubicon. These are not aesthetic rails—each side probably tips the scale at over 75lbs.
