I'm looking for 18" rims, as for the other stuff. I've bought from Carid, Madness Autoworkers, Rugged Ridge etc.

What's the difference between skid plates and rock sliders?

Are skid plates fitted beneath the car to protect the underside and if so why are they called skid plates. Strange name.

Rock sliders I imagine are the side steps and I presume to allow a rock to slide along the underside and then reconnect with the rear wheel?

Google and Search box here I come :oops:

Rock sliders are an aftermarket accessory popular among four wheel drive vehicle owners who engage in more serious off-road driving. ... They are affixed to the vehicle's chassis, and their function is to protect the door sills and door bottoms from damage when crossing large obstacles (such as rocks - hence the name).

A skid plate is an abrasion-resistant material affixed to the underside of a vehicle or boat to prevent damage to the underside when contact is made with the ground. Skid plates may be used on off-road vehicles and lowered vehicles to prevent damage to the underside
