White Knuckle Off Road is now a sponsor of ExploringNH. Please consider them when making your off-road purchases. I will be installing a set of their sliders in the next week or so. They are located in Apple Valley California, so let's support another US based company. I will post up some install pics and videos and some wheeling pics and videos when I use them.

The Nissan community also swears by them. Quick turn-around, bombproof. And the kick-out they add works great to pivot yourself around a rock or tree. They also have an option for tread plates. Really wish I had done the tread plates... would cut down on the sand-blasting the lower sides take...

Paul did you ever put these on? -- I'm in the market and would love to see some better pictures than what is on their website -- Install pics?

Thanks, Jer

Yes. Working on an install write up. I will tell you that they are no joke. I am just under 400lbs and I stand on them and they don't budge. I had the entire Jeep sitting on the sliders, rock on each side and they didn't budge, we hi-lifted off of them and again, they didn't budge. They are SOLID and with all the weight of the Jeep sliding over rocks, they are scratched, not dented, not gouged just scratched. After a little touch up paint they will be back to looking new.

I will try to get my install pics and some pics and videos of them being used posted up by the end of the day.

I have jacked the truck up by just the kickout with a hi-lift (had to try out the new toy) and there was very little deflection. They REALLY hold up.

These are up at a 20 degree angle and I am so happy I chose that as I don't think I would've been happy if they were straight. If you want to check them out I can meet up with you sometime.

Paul we met a few weeks ago -- At the newb ride -- I'm the guy from Jersey -- asked about the battery pack on your belt -- My wife was behind the wheel most of the day -- JKU in Tank

Anyway -- Most likely I'll have something before we meet again -- Thinking about going to the Vermont overland rally at end of the month and need to do a few things to give some protection -- Jersey Girl been asking for steps for awhile now -- even more so now that she may have a little offroad bug

Are these drilled to frame mount or do they use the body mounts? -- Hard to tell from the pictures

Any idea if white knuckle has any type of Labor day sale going? -- Forum discount?

The White Knuckle ones are solidly mounted into the frame. The ones that piggyback off the body mounts will flex (I don't mean bend per se) at the body mount once you put the full weight of the Jeep on them, to the point they will make contact with the pinch seam. Ask me how I know this.

I will be at the VOR this year. They are frame mounted, they are a bit lower then the body mounted setups, but they offer a perfect step for getting in and out and offer great protection. I have to be honest I am in love.

I will email my contact at White Knuckle and find out.

My body mounted ones are for sale, they work great for regular off road use, but the more I used them the more they seemed to flex and made me quite nervous.

I've seen your pinch seam...


So I added a set for the JKU into my cart at White Knuckle -- Just to see the real, shipped price...

Did you buy them just to see how long they would take to get to your house. Haha

I didn't buy them -- I saw the part that said they would need a few weeks for production so they won't be here in time for VOR anyway

I do have a question about mounting -- are the mounts flat plates, where you drilled holes thru the frame to mount them up? Did they use existing holes?

in your last picture is that a mount wrapped around the bottom of the frame rail? How many times is it tied back to the frame?

They are worth the wait. Can't rush quality, and these are definitely high quality. They are made in the USA and shipped when done. They communicated back and forth with me on measurements and talked me through different ideas and questions I had. Completely awesome to deal with. The front and rear are L shape brackets, 2 bolts in the side of the frame and 1 in the bottom in the front and 2 in the bottom, the middle bracket is just a plate so 2 bolts into the side of the frame. The front bottom uses an existing hole with a threaded bolt supplied to go right in, the rest need to be drilled.

Ordered my sliders today! And for a limited time, you can too . . . with a 10% discount!

https://4awt2g.dm.files.1drv.com/y4mB-cJuy1qmHNUVk6c6UJeJgYnUpNS7TSGysrkBEi1aysjKeSccVyc HNEy3B7sWUb-LFCWDt2O64irgICkZQqO2xde8VRlAqJddFzuZ2cPkqoBNVBQAj UPIkSuXvoD4Z06WBtwHVSaOhEXnBteZvZWYVbhAtd0Hlw4MhfX A2x1lE4fLXNEyrnrUtUMO4KFebZV6QeMyZA-LIKqfsjAUDPJ7Q?width=772&height=592&cropmode=none

The difference between the HREW (hot rolled electric welded) and DOM (drawn over mandrel) is strength.
The HREW is basically mild steel with a yield strength of around 40ksi.
The DOM is the same material put through a secondary process where the tube is cold drawn over a mandrel which produces a more consistent and stronger tube. This process creates a tube that has a yield strength of around 70ksi.
The DOM is simply stronger, can take more punishment and is best suited for use against rocks. It is also capable of stopping depleted uranium rounds up to a muzzle velocity of 1,670 meters per second*.




* Not really.

Matt, that isn’t good, hopefully repairable or at least biddable with some armor. Nemesis Industries makes a decent Rocker armor kit that would go nicely with those new sliders.

anybody else who has steps vs sliders or even tubes, make sure they can take a beating before your body does.

MattJ
06-20-2018, 06:34 PM
Wait a minute, are you saying I need to buy armor, too? I was just going to make sure the damage to my body panels was sanded and painted to prevent rust. If I need to buy armor, please send me a link to the product you recommend (that matches well with the black matte powder coated White Knuckle sliders). Thanks!

You don’t “need” to buy armor. I just try to get armor covering the areas that I have weakened do to bumps and bruises. But if I was going to get some armor to cover damage it would be this.

BTW Nemesis is also an ENH Sponsor now. I just haven’t updated the threads. I just installed my new Nemesis Flares and front inner liners.

06-20-2018, 07:25 PM
Thanks. I've definitely some some ugly damage to the lower edges of the body panels. I was hoping the "up 20 degrees" angle on the sliders helped to hide it. But since the Nemesis armor is only another 20 pounds, maybe it's a good option. The sliders are 60 pounds each, so I am planning to upgrade my AEV suspension system to the new high-capacity system they announced this year at SEMA.
