Exciting news to share! I am proud to provide you all with an update regarding performance rock sliders from Megawatt™, which will be available at Electruck4x4.com.

The team has been working tirelessly over the past few months to bring together race-proven designs and trail-tested construction and adapt them to the already capable R1T. What we've arrived at is a no compromise, tough as nails solution that is a rock slider first with the added benefit of being a full length running board step. Given the weight of the R1 platform, we thought this approach was absolutely critical to ensure reliable protection of a ~7100lb, ~$100,000 truck.

The performance rock slider from Megawatt™ will be the only rock slider on the market that incorporates .188" main rail protection with a stylish, yet highly functional kick-out. It will also be the only rail to incorporate a hybrid mounting configuration that utilizes direct-to-frame mounting (no standoffs) with a unique bracketing system for added roll support.

These units will be priced at $1500 a pair with a 15% discount going to all pre-order holders. We anticipate final production of initial units to occur on January 31st. I didn't want to photoshop anything. So, I will post additional photos in the next week or so. In the meantime, teaser shots and current specifications are as follows:
