The DV8 Offroad SRGL-01 bedside sliders provide great protection for the bed of your Gladiator when coming off of an obstacle. It's no secret that the departure angle of the Gladiator is not ideal for hardcore offroading and its not if, but when you will hit your bedsides. Even the OEM Rubicon protection can't stand up to the abuse that this part of the vehicle sustains (ask us how we know). DV8 has over-engineered this product to take a beating. It's made of a combination of 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch steel which is fully gusseted. There is more than meets the eye to the SRGL-01, sleek and not noticeable on the surface with serious protection underneath!
