Jeep JK's, are extremely vulnerable to rocker armor damage on the trail. Poison Spyder Brawler Rockers™ provide the ultimate rocker armor protection while actually enhancing your Jeep's off-road capability—not to mention they look bad-ass! Brawler Rockers™ are two-piece "mini-boatside" style rocker armor which protects your Jeep's body panels while functioning as a slider, pivot and entry step. This part number is for the all steel version which is perfect for those Jeeps that spend a lot of time in the big rocks (an aluminum version is also available). This product is finished in black with Poison Spyder's proprietary SpyderShell™ Armor Coat process.

Product Description

Rugged Steel Plate Construction
Each Brawler Rocker component is fabricated entirely of CNC-laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. 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. Inside, an array of beefy 3/16" thick internal gussets provide ultimate strength to the Brawler Rocker™. All fastener holes are countersunk for a flat surface using the flat-head hardware. 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 steel, 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™.

SpyderShell™ Armor Coat
SpyderShell™ is more than just powder coating—it's a complete system that includes the state of the art in preparation, application, materials and packaging to ensure that your SpyderShell™ products stay looking great for years. The SpyderShell™ process has been engineered to provide your Poison Spyder product with years of unmatched great looks, corrosion protection and weather-resistance. Our proprietary 6-stage system starts with media blasting the entire part, to remove contaminents and prep the metal surface for the best possible adhesion. Next, any seams are sealed with 3M Scotch-Weld to block moisture from entering and causing corrosion where the powder can not reach. The first coat to be applied is a zinc-rich powdered black primer, which is baked on to form an impenetrable bond between the metal product and the coating. The primer is black--rather than traditional gray--so that any rock chips or trail damage are less conspicuous. The final top coat is an industrial grade, "super-durable" architectural finish in semi-gloss black, which is engineered to retain its appearance through years of exposure to sun and weather. SpyderShell is a coating process unmatched by any other Jeep armor aftermarket manufacturer, for which we are confident in offering a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

2-Piece Design
The upper piece of the Brawler Rocker assembly fits the rocker panel 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 an extremely strong rub rail 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 steel angles down and inward to form a high clearance boatside for sliding off of rocks and obstacles. 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™ are designed to handle a serious beating! They not only provide unmatched rocker protection, but they also provide a super strong pivot point which can help you to maneuver through tight obstacles. The boatside design will allow the Jeep to slide off of rocks and back onto the center of the trail. The protruding rub rail keeps vertical obstructions such as trees and rock walls a safe distance from the Jeep's doors and other vulnerable body parts. And when you need to change a tire or perform an extraction, the Brawler Rocker™ provides a strong, convenient lifting point for your Hi-Lift jack.

5 of 5 Solid install April 24, 2020
Reviewer: Mark from Virginia  
These fit perfect and look great! Quality hardware and somewhat easy to read instructions. It took about 3 hours for one side and two on the other. You gotta take your time lining it up and drilling the holes - probably why it took me longer. Step drill the holes starting with a 1/8” bit...step up gradually since the Jeep metal is soft and the bit WILL grab and distort the hole. If you jump up in bit size too early, the hole will be destroyed. Ensure you have a tight fit on the nutserts. Even at the final drill size, some nutserts were a hair the bit another time or two till it goes in. Invest in a nutsert gun...that little tool that comes with the rockers will take forever and could get mixed results. You’ll need a second person and a good set of clamps. Overall I had little trouble...

4 of 5 Installation April 13, 2018
Reviewer: Timothy Archer from Alexander, AR United States  
Love the product. Very solid and finishes off the side look of the Jeep.

Hand wrenching nut serts isn’t fun. “Careful” use of an impact gun or a nut sert tool is a must. There are other brands of nut sert tool than what PS recommends, and they are much less expensive. I thought I could by one locally but the tool was no where to be found but online. Buy it!!

But I love it after the installation

Reviewer: Daniel Stallard from Prince Frederick, MD United States  
I recently purchased these for my 2014 JKU. I was very pleased with the speed my order was filled and shipped. Once the order arrived I opened the box and the product was packaged very well with no damage. Directions were very thorough and easy to install. Big thanks to the Poison Spyder team
