There are no sissy bypasses around the bumper scrapers?

Just had a long talk with the wife. Mentioned how excited I was about Cruise Moab but how worried I am about my rockers. Sliders would be great, but I had told her I was done spending money on the cruiser for a while......


Her response was "whatever", which means "buy whatever sliders you want". WOOHOOO!

Trails I have ran at Cruise Moab with a stock locked 80 (with sliders, and OEM receiver hitch)

Hells Revenge
Fins & Things
Porcupine Rim
Metal Masher
Kane Creek
Wipe out Hill
Poison Spider

Kane Creek will pin stripe your truck. I make no promises to your plastic bumper corners. But I have no major damage otherwise.

YOU WANT SLIDERS. They are far cheaper than a rocker panel repair. Which eventually you will need without them. Probably sooner than later.

That was my thought that the hill might be the issue...For a stock 80 dropping down onto the hill sections I think the rockers would come close to hitting...Can't remember though really

First trail we ever did was Porcupine rim with 285s, OME lift (2.5") and I hit my sliders several times. Next trail was Fin and don't remember hitting the sliders but definitely drug the butt end a lot and had a 60 roll backward into my brand new ARB at the lunch stop ...Last up was Poison Spider Mesa and I'm pretty sure we hit the front ARB, rear Slee, and the sliders that day

She's a keeper! Slieders are a worthy investment, but not 100% necessary. Removal of running boards is. I was one of the first CM 80's back in 2003. I did buy some used Slee early prototype sliders and I'm still running them. I only this year had to finally replace my stock rear bumper ends - a combination of the Golden Crack and Old Chinaman's Gulch. I'm running an OME heavy lift and 285's. I have run every trail in Moab except Pritchett and Moab Rim.

On the long wheelbase line on Wipe Out Hill you won't drag rockers. You can do Moab very rocker friendly if you have some lift and 285's. You will drag the stock tow hitch and front and rear bumpers.

Maybe Slee has some blems or seconds out back behind his shop....
Talk with Scotty at ADDICTED OFFROAD and check out his website. I have some sliders for my 60 on order and they look very good. They were not listed for a 60 on his site, but they are available. The price is attractive too. Maybe there would be a little something left over to buy that gal some pearl earrings in appreciation of her support! Then she can pawn them when those college bills come around...

No lift. I was considering adding the sliders, and removing the front bumper and rear bumper corners.

I would not bother with the front bumper covers. I don't think I ever hit those. Back bumper covers will take some abuse if you don't mind the paint scratches. Otherwise pull them off.

Another thing you'll want to consider is your cats. Don't want to wack them too hard on a rock either. The cat guard under my Metal Techs often was the first point of contact on anything before my lift. Not too hard to avoid but keep it in your mind.
