PN: 18-08-200-ALUM

Due to popular demand, Poison Spyder Brawler Rockers™ for JK are now available in light-weight aluminum. Features and construction are exactly identical to our Heavy Duty STEEL Brawler Rockers™, the only exception being that these are fabricated from 3/16" thick aluminum plate rather than 3/16" steel. Aluminum would be preferred by those who want the bad-ass looks, entry step functionality, and an admittedly reduced measure of rocker armor protection, but with a very significant weight savings compared to the steel versions. For those who will be testing their Jeeps on tougher trails where frequent contact with the rocks is to be expected, we highly recommend opting for the steel versions. While the aluminum is a respectable 3/16" thick, it should not be expected to withstand the same amount of punishment that our steel Brawler Rockers can handle.

Brawler Rockers™ are two-piece "mini-boatside" style rocker armor. Each component is fabricated entirely of CNC-laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate. The upper piece fits the lower section of your Jeep's exterior sheetmetal like a glove, conforming to the sublte curvature of the JK and providing protection similar to Poison Spyder's JK Body Armor™. The lower piece incorporates a rub rail/step that protrudes about 3¼" outboard of the Jeep's body tub. The top surface of the rub rail may also serve as an entry step. Below, the brake-formed 3/16" plate material angles down and inward to form a high clearance boatside. Inside, an array of beefy 3/16" thick internal gussets provide extra strength to the Brawler Rocker™. Oval lightning holes along the length of the boatside section provide great Poison Spyder looks while allowing access to hose out mud and debris after a day on the trail. The ends of the Brawler Rockers are capped in the same 3/16" plate material, in angled facets that allow up to a 40" tire and visually integrate with the lines of Poison Spyder front and rear JK Crusher Flares™.

The upper piece attaches to the body tube using supplied stainless steel flat-head cap screws and nut-serts. The lower piece attaches to the upper piece also with stainless steel flat-head cap screws and easy-to-install clip-nuts. All fastener holes are countersunk for a flat surface using the flat-head hardware. Underneath, the lower piece attaches at the Jeep's body mounts. Attaching the Brawler Rockers™ in this way, along several different planes, provides triangulated strength to the entire assembly. The body-mount tie-ins ensure that they are securely integrated to the strongest structural component of the Jeep—the frame—while also allowing the Brawler Rocker™ to hug the body tub as closely as possible. Please note that Brawler Rockers are NOT compatible with body lifts.

Brawler Rockers™ ship bare, allowing you to paint or powdercoat in the color of your choice. Note that if you have previously installed Poison Spyder's JK Body Armor, you will be able to re-use the existing nut-serts, saving a significant amount of installation time (Body Armor will have to be removed).

5 of 5 Switch from armor to sliders October 18, 2018
Reviewer: deadmoon from San Jose, CA United States  
I'd been rocking the JKU armor for years , but wanted to upgrade to sliders. I had a bunch of questions about whether the nutserts on the two products lined up, if there were other concerns, etc. Besides a loose nutsert or three, the deinstallation of the armor and the installation of the sliders was completely trouble free. The hardest thing was waiting for the powdercoating to cure.

5 of 5 Excellent quality April 19, 2013
Reviewer: cod29er from Boise, ID United States  
They fit perfectly!  They are back from powder coat and installed.  Looks great!  Can't wait to use them!

The instructions suggest prying against a closely placed object to get the rub rail tight against the body armor.  What I came up with was hook a ratchet strap to the front seat leg on one side, wrap it around the bottom and hook to the front seat leg on the other side.  Tightened the strap down and snugged it up tight.  Also wrapped a strap around through the back doors.  Strap was long enough to hook together.  Again, tightened the strap down and snugged it up tight.

The nutsert tool.  Ugh!!  It was a pain.  After about four of them my buddy realized that his Harbor Freight rivet gun had the threaded rod needed for these nutserts.  The rest of them went in in about the time it took to install the first four!  (Cost about $16)
