Pictures of Tomken Rocker Guards?

Does anyone have a single darn picture of what these look like no an XJ? Google comes up with nothing...I would just like to see what they look like. I like the idea they are nice and tight to the body, but I'll be damned if the internet is just devoid of pictures of these things

They are the Tomken Machine 2X4 rocker guards!

Seriously...don't waste your money on them. They haven't changed their design in 20 years based on photos I've seen.

I had them back in the day. The pinch seam clamp is very short and any good weight on them will push up into the rockers.

Here is a thread mimicking what I'm saying.

Interesting link from gearwhine! From 2003...when I installed the Tomken sliders on my XJ Waggy. I've had some hard hits on them and they have held up great for the past 16 years. Just my experience though.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Tomken.

Their customer service has been good for me.

Re: Pictures of Tomken Rocker Guards?

I do some good searching; what can I say?

That's great to hear you guys haven't had problems! I always liked that Tomken doesn't completely overbuild and weigh everything down. I just personally didn't have good luck with their sliders taking care of my rockers.

I had their bumpers front and rear for a long time, and would recommend those for sure! Very basic looking to keep the stock-ish look of the xj, 1/8" steel, and decent mounting.

Sounds like you'll have a 50/50 play on these sliders in my mind.

I'm planning to buy some jeep accessories for my XJ also and that includes rock sliders. I'm torn between the Tomken and AJ's Offroad. I'm also thinking if sliders with kickouts are more beneficial.

Speaking of tomken, has anyone used or really even seen the engine and trans skid? Not trying to hijack, figured it would be related...

I've looked quite a bit without seeing any reviews...
