There are a number of Wrangler custom rocker armor "how-to build" articles out there, however Steve Garan from Las Vegas, Nevada has incorporated several special touches to his 1994 Wrangler YJ.
Before we get to Steve's custom design let's spend a few moments on the most common traditional designs of most aftermarket rocker panel armor. These pieces utilize either a full length L-shaped single piece of 3/16 to 1/4 inch steel, which is mounted directly to the rocker panels of the Wrangler, or...
the same, or similar flat steel with an attached Nerf bar. These bars can be found with several configurations and shapes. Some are single tubes bars, while other may be double (or more) tubes, and also may be made of square tubing.
(Take a look at some of the different Wrangler Rock sliders available in the aftermarket here.)
Now, let's get to Steve's unique custom rocker armor for his Wrangler.
Steve writes: "Forty (40) feet by 6 inches of 3/16 inch plate steel went into my design and fabrication. Four (4) holes were added for night crawler lights underneath each side. I'll let the pictures tell the story."
I want to thank Steve for the time and effort put into documenting the steps to building this custom rocker armor for his '94 Wrangler YJ. The work looks top notch and very professionally done.
