It looks like BA4x4 just started selling rock sliders.
I've been very happy with the front bumper they made so I decided to try their sliders too.
Pros:
  • They're full bolt on, no drilling.
  • The quality and the welds look good, just like the bumper I bought.
  • They seem to use nice hardware. Large 21mm head 10.9 bolts.
  • They come powder coated and the coating quality looks good.
  • The hardware is coated too.
  • Mine ended up costing about $800 after tax from Amazon.
  • Shipping was maybe 4 business days.
  • They are sort of light for sliders, wild guess at 60 to 80 lbs. each side.
  • They're strong enough the jack the truck up with them.

Cons:
  • They're sort of light for sliders. While I'm comfortable jacking the truck up, I don't think I'd do any serious rock crawling with them.
  • The instructions aren't great.. You can download them from BA's website, but there's not a lot of detail. Fortunately I've looked at a lot of different slider install instructions so you can figure it out.
  • The flat "step" sliders that I got were not available with a kick out. I really did want a kick out. Their non step version does have a kick out, but are 20 degrees and not a very good step and I wanted both.

Overall, I'm very happy so far and they fit what I was looking for.
I wanted a step that would also provide some protection and I think these do very well in that regard. While I wouldn't want to bash on them, I do believe they could take a hit or two and give you a push before you end up in your rocker panel.
These are probably a great compromise of weight and strength for an overland type build.

The install went pretty well. No real strangeness. Fit and finish seem really good, especially for the price.
I found that for the front two bolts with the long nut plate, it was easiest to wiggle it until the front bolt lined up and tightened a bit then bend/persuade the rear nut to line up while using the one long bolt that came for each side.
