The Glissade - Heavy Duty Rocker Replacement Sliders (WJ)
Glissade - Heavy Duty Rocker Replacement Sliders for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ (1999 - 2004). Bolt on application with mild cutting. We will be heading out Saturday June 17 to film the actual durability testing video of our sliders and should be releasing pre-sale the following week. Initial production at a discount rate will be for 20 sets. We are now working on the installation instructions and working out shipping details.
These rock sliders are built for extreme offroading situations (see video for demo). Used as sliders to get over obstacles and steps to make it easier to reach your roof from the side of your vehicle. Cutting of the outer rocker panel is required. You DO NOT need to cut the pinch seam nor do they mount to the pinch seam. The pinch seam is NOT used in this application. Once you cut out the outer rocker panel, the pinch seam is bent upwards using a pair of heavy duty pliers or pipe wrench. Detailed installation instructions will be provided and you can do this in your driveway with an extra pair of helping hands.
We considered two important factors when designing our rock sliders. 1) By the time a WJ owner decides it's time for rock sliders, your rocker panels are either destroyed from offroading or rusted away from road salt. Our mounting system utilizes areas where most rockers panels are still in tact and strengthen the rocker area of your WJ.
