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.
Easy install. They work great. They make the truck look good when they are retracted.

4.04 star due to alignment issue.
The gen 3 was very easy to install and wireing was super simple. The steps rattle bad on dirt roads, due to the gap on the step that retracts down has some serious alignment issues. All in all im pleased.
