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?
Any large or overweight item may take up to 7 - 10 business days. 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! If you want to check and see the status of your order, or to see if we have something in stock, give us a call! We will go and check for you to make sure!
Installed the Rock Sliders with armor on my 2016 Jeep Unlimited JK Rubicon. High quality piece of gear. Works flawlessly. The lights are a must do addition. My wife and I are super pleased.
Steve at "Power Tank" showed them to me and my wife on his JK in Lodi as I was buying a 10lb Power Tank. That sold us.
Thanks for such a great addition to a lifted Jeep.

Awesome Review by Deftfur
During install I noticed I was missing the battery harness and called RSE. Two days later the harness was at my doorstep. Great customer service experience and they apologized for the inconvenience. No big deal, things happen. Installing the sliders themselves solo was a bit of a pain but doable. I recommend having a tall floor jack or some pieces of 2x4’s handy with a floor jack to help lift up the sliders after placing it on the body mounts to help level the sliders for marking the nutserts. The electrical section of the install is much easier than it seems. I was able to barely lift up the rear carpet from the door sills and pull most of the harness in where it needed to be.
Overall, it wasn’t too bad of an install solo and the quality is great. Well worth the amount they’re asking and I know it’ll make my lady happy getting in and out of the jeep.
Thanks to RSE for a great one of a kind product with friendly customer service. (Posted on 12/2/2017)
