Ricochet Rocker™ protection can be used alone or in combination with Crusher Corners™. The two body armor pieces fit together at the rear flare area. Used together, Ricochet Rockers' and Crusher Corners™ form the ultimate protection, guarding your Jeep's body from the front wheel well to the tailgate. Ricochet Rockers™ are secured with counter sunk 3/8" stainless hardware, supplied in the kit with detailed installation instructions.
Ricochet Rockers™ have a distinguishing 5" dimpled plate that acts as a step and a stout reinforcement for the slider. This makes the Ricochet Rocker™ protection a very effective armor addition and an effective pivot for getting into your rock chariot. Jeep TJ,YJ and CJ7 have three dimples, Unlimited and CJ8 have four. With the dimple protrusions pointing upward, they give the extra benefit of increased foot traction when entering or exiting the vehicle, even with boots covered with snow or mud
Ricochet Rockers™ are further reinforced with additional bracing below the dimpled step. The dual tube support and slider bar is constructed of 1.5" DOM tubing, the step and corner gussets are CNC laser cut from 3/16" steel plate, and brake-formed to act as their own gusset for strength and a clean appearance. Everything is professionally welded and comes to you ready to paint and bolt on.
This product ships as bare steel—it will need to be painted or powder coated prior to final installation. We do not offer a powder coat option for this item.
This specific part number is for use on YJ's where the stock front and rear fender flares are being retained, as they are cut to fit around the flares at either end. This specific part number is also compatible with our YJ Crusher Corners in the STOCK configuration. It is NOT compatible with "Standard" Crusher Corners—in that case choose our YJ/CJ-7 Ricochet Rockers with TJ Wheel Opening.
For installations in which you would like to protect the paint underneath the Ricochet Rocker™, as well as provide a measure of vibration absorption, we offer an optional Rubber Liner, precisely cut to fit between the Rocker Knocker and the Jeep's body. Be sure to order these separately, as they're not included in the standard Ricochet Rocker™ package.
