I just bought a set of Rubicon rock sliders real cheap on Ebay. I had time to hang one on the passenger side and now I not sure it I want to keep them.
The Mopar rock sliders look great but offer no protection to the side of the Jeep from road dirt/gravel off the front tire. I really don't do any hard core off roading where I would need a rock slider but I like the looks of them.
The Mopar steps look ok and offer some protection to the side of the Jeep but I really never use them as a step. I really hate getting out of the Jeep in the winter with those steps sticking out. I always get crap on my pant legs.
So my question is:
Keep the steps for protection from road dirt/gravel off the front tires or use the Rubicon rock sliders because they look great and would offer great protection if I hit something offroad?
