Nemesis Rocker Guards

Does anyone have any experience with these rocker guards? They are not cheap by any means but I like how they protect the body mounts as well as the rocker panel. I realize you lose a bit of clearance on off camber events with something like this but keeping the body mounts safe seems nice. Might be a bit over kill as I don't really play in the rocks like many of y'all do. Looking for ideas on better rocker guards over the stock Rubicon ones for my trip to Moab this fall. Thanks all.

Those look very functional.

I like rocker guards (sliders) that stick out a few inches and have a full length tube like Rockmen sells. The tube makes a great recovery anchor point and you can have a couple of people stand on the tube if things get too tippy. I've used mine against a rock as a pivot point when I needed to make a very tight turn in a wash. If the sliders don't stick out far enough, you can hit your door instead of the slider.

For protecting the body mounts, I cut off the factory mounts, got rid of the body lift spacers and welded on the Bertha body mounts.

I'll order them today and see you next week

I've thought about doing this to help clean up the look. One of these days I'd like to pull the whole tub off and spray an under coating on it as well as refinish the frame before rust really starts getting to it. However i am shopping for an LJ tub.

Hey @87Warrior if you find me a LJ tub you can have my TJ tub

TnT also offers a set similar. I opted to combine ideas and Fab my own on my orange Rubi. Protected the body mounts, like TnT and mini boatside like Genright. Bottom 1" of the tub got massaged back with a plastic mallet. The basic design works great though.
