Bed rock sliders?

Now that I have the white knuckles installed, I noticed the ZR2 Bision and new Gladiator have rock sliders for the back bed, does anyone make anything for the Frontier?

ARB makes a bumper with bed protection. It requires a fill panel that installs below the tailgate. The only problem with this design is that it does not increase your departure angle over the stock bumper and hitch setup. The vertical plate that hangs down will just dig into the ground as well.

If you look at JeniorNVs build thread you will see her modified Calmini rear bumper that she had bed protection added to. Calmini really should make them that way.

I've never seen a bolt on rear slider. There are a few people that have cut the bed to include a rear slider as part of the bumper though. As far as I know that's all custom work.

Something liek this would be pretty slick.

I took the truck and the Calmini bumper to a fabrication shop and gave them full permission to go nuts. They removed quite a bit of sheet metal, but it turned out well and has proven to protect the bed on technical trails.

That is a sweet setup! I love the way that looks! Might have to do something similar to that.....

"That truck is too nice to take off roading". Then why did I get a 4x4
