One of our biggest questions we often hear is all about our Step Slider and if they are off-road capable. Are they?
Yes! That is what we had them built and designed for. They function as perfectly capable sliders when the step is in the closed position. The motors can be submerged and the lights are waterproof. All the connectors are waterproof. They function between -40 degrees and 120 degrees. They may slow down at lower temperature but will still function how they should! They have been tested in Moab in the heat and rocks along with Northern Utah at the manufacture facility where the temperature can hit -30 degrees.?
Do I have to cut into the jeep wiring system at all?
Nope! We wanted to keep the jeep and truck computer independent of our system so we send out our own little sensors you will install on your door along with our own small computer and wiring harness. The sensors are actuated with magnets you stick on your door so when they open the steps then deploy, and then when you shut the door they come back up in.
I want to go rock crawling but don’t want my step to deploy. What do I do?
Easy! We send each and every step slider unit out with a little ¾” rocker on/off switch. Simply switch this to the off position when off-roading and this will turn the system off. If they do deploy our computer will detect if something is below them and stop so the motors don’t get damaged. This works going up also. If something gets stuck the system will shut off to prevent injury to you and itself!
How hard are they to install and how long is the install time?
The hardest part is marking the holes and installing the nutserts. Everything else is straightforward and we send out a detailed step by step instruction manual you can follow. We normally recommend the install time to take between 4-5 hours the first time. Some may take longer because they are double and triple checking everything, but installers can do this within 4 hours. Shop rates may differ however.
Do your front bumpers or Step Sliders come with lights?
The lights are optional. They do not come with the lights installed, but they are sold separately. They are a simple plug and play option which makes installing them extremely simple.
I just placed an order. How long will it take to ship?

We make everything in our fabrication and manufacturing facility and because of the high demand for our bumpers and step sliders we will ship as soon as we can!
