Chevy Colorado Rock Sliders & GMC Canyon
super slider kit. Factory clean look, but with unbeatable protection and lifetime guarantee!
NOTHING is stronger!
Rocky Road’s Colorado Rock Sliders are the ‘creme de la creme’ for true rocker protection for the Chevy Colorado. Forget hacking together a makeshift Toyota kit that won’t fit right, mount optimally, or even look halfway decent. Our kits are designed for the Colorado/Canyon specifically!
We use thick inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything else is just plain flimsy. Most other “rocker slider” kits are made from 1/8″ wall or thinner material…. truly flimsy. Don’t group our kits in with those flimsy tube nerf bars as those will bend on a hard impact. As pretty as those chrome or black round tube jobbers may look, when push comes to shove, and rocks come to crunch, those kits will will bend…. and many times, they’ll shove themselves up into the body causing vehicle damage when they do collapse.
Our Colorado/Canyon Rock Sliders have a very sleek rounded look about them as we use genuine inner hitch steel in their construction. Hitch steel is not only very strong, it also has a nice radius corner instead of a hard boxy look. Inner hitch steel is the stuff you use to plug into 2″ receiver hitches. Its sheer weight is astronomical as is its bending strength. Our shop press only goes to 40 tons and we can’t even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!
Why hitch steel?
Why not go with a lesser gauge steel to save production costs?
Because we wouldn’t trust anything less to protect our vehicles and neither should you! Besides, since these carry the Rocky Road **lifetime guarantee**, we don’t want to have to replace them for you for free every couple years or so. We made them indestructible so they’ll last forever and they are guaranteed forever, NEVER to bend on you!
Our rock sliders are very simple to install and are completely ‘bolt on’. Rocky Road rock slider kits can be installed by anyone at home. No vehicle cutting or modification is needed. Instructions outline the simple bolton process for installation. Save money doing it yourself and you’ll be shocked at the short installation time!

protection not only from trail hazards, but also parking lot doors.
Also can be a helpful step to get inside.
You’ll find the Colorado/GMC Canyon Rock Sliders to be very attractive and will blend in nicely with your stock flares and moldings as pictured to the right. They run fender to fender and many folks have commented on their very OEM (factory) look. They tuck tighter to the body than any other rocker on the market as well.
POWDERCOATING. Some shops charge you extra for powdercoating… Huh?!?
All Rocky Road rock slider kits come coated in a great looking semi-gloss black. You’re gonna pay the same price as a Rocky Road kit and get it in bare metal? That’s crazy! Or pay $60 extra to have that shop coat them for you? Even Crazier!!! With Rocky Road Montero rock sliders, its all included!
Pictured at left is an example of an engineering detail of the Rocky Road kits over others on the market. This just helps demonstrates one of the many superior engineering points in our system.
Notice the top picture at left is a Rocky Road rock slider kit. See the beveled edge? The nice 45* ramp which would slide up and over any rock or stump on the trail? Its takes more time and effort to manufacture the kits this way, but that’s all included with the Rocky Road kits.
Now take a look at the lower picture at left. This is from a competitor. Same pricing for the rocker kits, but they cut their production costs by making the end a blunt square. Run that thing into a rock and you can clearly see the trouble you will face. Its a battering ram, not a rock slider. It could stop your vehicle cold or require you to bash away until something gives. Why would they build their kits with this engineering defect? Simple… its cheaper to manufacture with the flat end, so that’s what they go with.
Also notice how much further down their kit hangs. Rocky Road kits tuck up tight!
These two points are easily observed engineering advantages the Rocky Road kit offers… but there are many more.
In a nutshell, Rockrails are the strongest and thickest bars on the market, best mounting system, numerous superior engineering point, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend. Why wouldn’t you get a set?
Some folks ask if they can handle a HiLift jack. HA! If a rock slider cannot handle a gentle upward push from a HiLift, how is it supposed to block an assault by a full body slam on a rock??? Our Rockrails can handle anything and everything you can throw at them and are guaranteed for life against denting or bending.
Also available are the Rocky Road Super sliders. All pictures on this webpage are actually super slider models.
These rocker bars offer all the strength and warranty of our regular Rockrails, but with the added bonus of an additional upper tube. This upper tube can provide even more protection against sliding into rocks, trees, or other trail hazards.
All photos on this webpage are of the super slider kits with the additional secondary protection bar.
Note the extra side protection, step for roof acces, and unbeatable looks!
Everyone who has seen these on our shop 4x4s has wanted a pair. They are unequaled in strength and looks.
They also make an excellent step for access to roof racks and such. Each Super Slider kit mounts identical to the standard Rockrail for the vehicle. It also still features that great looking 45* front and rear edge. Not only good for looks, but alot more practical for trail use than our competition’s squared off ends.
This is basically the same proven design as our world famous Rockrails, only with the extra slider tube up top.
The extra slider tube up top offers additional side protection on the trail and off the trail. One of our favorite uses of the super slider is as a bash guard against other swinging doors in a parking. Imagine the dismay of the chump who just threw open his car door only to whack it on the solid steel of your super slider. He just stuck a nice dent in the edge of his door, your toy still looks cherry!
