Rock Slide Engineering's newly designed 3rd Generation Step Slider is next level. This fully functional, trail rated, rock slider is integrated with a power step for easy access for all demographics. Cosmetic changes allow the step to curve and follow the contour of the vehicle, minimizing spacing between the rear end of the extension to the fender flare. An additional 2 inches on the back end of the step has been added to this generation for better, safer access to the rear door. Their engineers have incorporated smart motor technology and eliminated the gas strut from the internals of the step to increase the motor longevity. This improvement will keep your step deploying and retracting consistently, even in cold and harsh weather. A sleep mode has been built in to minimize battery drainage. The slider provides protection for the rocker panel on your Jeep. The step will deploy a full 12 inches down from the body of the Slider when the door is opened. After closing your door, the step will automatically retract and sit flush with the body of the step slider.
Rock Slide Engineering's Step Slider is made of 10-gauge steel construction. They use a state-of-the-art automated powder coat system to acid etch the raw base material in preparation for the textured black topcoat. The internals of the step slider are made of stainless steel and aluminum to prevent rusting. This plug and play system is designed to utilize the factory mounting points for a no-drill installation. It uses a stand-alone wire harness, so no splicing or rewiring on your Jeep is necessary. This will allow you to retain your manufacturer warranty after installation.
The Step Slider is rated for moderate off-road conditions. More aggressive trails require the additional skid plate for the step slider to provide further stability and protection.

I have had them installed for a little over a week now and they look and work great. The motors are fairly quiet and move the steps up and down very gracefully. The instruction we also pretty well done, only a few issues with the instruction which I think are because I received an updated model over what the instructions expected. In my case this was most obvious as the on/off switch I received didn't look at all like the one in the instructions and had a different number of connections as well. That said it was very easy to tell what the differences where and adjust. The biggest problem I had with the install actually had nothing to do with the parts and more to do with a 12 year old Jeep not wanting to let go of any of its bolts. WD40 and a torch may be your best friends if you are working with a little older vehicle. :)

This is the best addition to my Jeep so far!!!!
Also bought the tailgate table and is awesome!
Been on my Jeep for 2 weeks and I love them so far.
Is there a switch to operate these when the doors are off?
Are the motors protected from water and mud?
Answer this question
There is a Master switch mounted driver side floor board, left side, where door straps mount.
And you have to purchase a door delete kit for about $95, adds a "Y" for the connectors, which adds a switch on the side of front seat rails, to operate steps, when doors are off..
Motors and plugs seem to seal, and I've had no issues, been thru multiple water crossings.
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of these step sliders, even though they are Pricey. Get the armor skid plated for steps as well if you plan to wheel Jeep

There is a lighted On/Off switch. I’ve had mine encased in mud once with no problem.
