Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers™

The most vulnerable areas on the body of the Jeep JK are the rocker panels. Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers™ protect your JK's rocker panel area while enabling you to slide over rocks and obstacles. Rocker Knockers™ enhance your Jeep's trail performance while adding rugged off-road looks to your JK.

Poison Spyder JK Rocker Knockers™ are engineered for brute strength and impact resistance by attaching to the Jeep's body in 14 strategic bolt locations. The mounting plate is CNC laser cut from 3/16" plate steel and precision brake-formed for a perfect fit. The tubular rocker rail is rugged 1.75" X .120 wall DOM structural tubing. The slider rail is fabricated from CNC-bent 1.5" X .120 wall DOM tubing. The space between the Slider and the main tube of the Rocker Knocker™ is filled with a CNC laser-cut Slider Skid. The Skid features Poison Spyder's exclusive oval dimples for structural strength as well as great Poison Spyder looks. The Skid attaches with countersunk stainless steel flat head cap screws for a flush surface. The Slider and Skid mount at an angle to the main tube of the Rocker Knocker™ to provide boatside-like protection from the rocks while keeping the Jeep's doors and body a safe distance from higher level trail hazards.

Another quality element of the Poison Spyder Rocker Knocker™ is the ability to remove the outer slider skid. The outer skid is built from 1/8" steel and is secured to a 3/16" base plate welded into the slider hoop assembly. The Slider does not rely on the skid for structure. The advantage of having the ability to remove the skid, is to allow you to replace it if it becomes damaged to a level that it has lost its aesthetic appearance or functionality. Also you will be able to customize the Sliders to match your Jeep, and to easily be able to remove it for re-finish.

Poison Spyder JK Rocker Knockers™ are compatible with all known suspensions and body lifts, including long arm kits. Because the Rocker Knockers™ mount directly to the Jeep's body tub, they will lift with the body when a body lift is installed (competitors' frame-mounted rocker guards may leave a gap on body-lifted vehicles). As an added attribute the Rocker Knocker™ mounting plate is designed with drain reliefs to discourage debris from collecting in the lower body cavity.

Poison Spyder JK Rocker Knockers™ can be utilized as a stand alone component or can be used in conjunction with Poison Spyder's JK Body Armor. JK Body Armor is a secondary line of defense against off road damage to your Jeep, protecting the Jeep by reaching above the Slider level up to the door line. Rocker Knockers do not mount or use the Body Armor for additional structure.

Frame-Mounted or Body-Mounted: Which is Right For You?
Choosing between the Frame-Mounted and Body-Mounted versions of Rocker Knockers™ will depend on several factors of your Jeep's configuration and how you use it. We will not claim that either version is more "hard core" than the other, as neither will make your Jeep absolutely bomb-proof and relieve you of the need for careful driving off-road. But here are some factors to consider when making your choice: Frame-Mounted Rocker Knockers

- Body-Mounted Rocker Knockers™ will move up with the body, if a body lift is installed, while the Frame-Mounted version will stay with the frame, creating a gap if a body lift is present.
- Body-Mounted Rocker Knockers™ are 100% compatible with any suspension system, including long-arm kits, without any further modification. The Frame-Mounted version would require some DIY modifications to be installed in conjunction with a long-arm kit.
- Frame-Mounted Rocker Knockers™ will generally provide better protection from side impacts, with the solid outriggers that attach them directly to the Jeep's frame rail.
- Frame-Mounted Rocker Knockers™ should provide marginally better protection from vertical impacts (such as hard-landing on a rock when coming off a ledge). However, this benefit would be maximized by taking the extra step of welding them in place.
- Body-Mounted Rocker Knockers™ will provide better ground clearance and "slide-ability". The outriggers on the Frame-Mounted version necessarily sit lower than the Jeep's body, and therefore lower than the Body-Mounted version. And the outriggers can potentially act as an anchor point since they are perpendicular to the Jeep's direction of forward progress.

The price is the same for either version so take the above factors into account when deciding which one is best for your Jeep.

Don't Forget the JK Body Armor!
Poison Spyder JK Rocker Knockers™ can be utilized as a stand alone component or can be used in conjunction with Poison Spyder's JK Body Armor. JK Body Armor is a secondary line of defense against off road damage to your Jeep, protecting the Jeep by reaching above the slider level up to the door line. Rocker Knockers™ do not mount to or use the Body Armor for additional structure. But they work and look great together as a complete rocker armor package.
