Metalcloak Overland series with ingenious flip-step design
This article is split into two sections, this is body mount rock rails, click here for frame mount rock rails.
Let's start with a unique design, the Ultra Series from Crawler Conceptz looks to have a hybrid type of mounting, connecting to both a rocker panel mounted skin and to the body mounts.
These are only available in 3/16" steel. For more info on Crawler Conceptz Ultra series rock sliders check out their website.
Metalcloak offers three different series of body armor; Overline, Overland, and Hardline. Each has it's own rock rail design, two of which feature a very clever design that provides two different mounting directions. One direction provides high clearance, the other provides a more convenient step height. All of them are only available in steel.

Nemesis Billy Rocker all aluminum 3pc kit
The Billy Rocker from Nemesis Industries, besides having an embarrasing name, looks to be a fantastic product. It is aluminum and features a replaceable skin. More Info about the Billy Rocker available here...

When I think of Fab Four I think of a cross between Transformers and Mad Max seasoned with a coating of road rage however their Rock Rails would look at home on any Jeep. I believe this is a fully welded-box design which will keep contaminates outside of the rail, whereas all the other designs have openings that will fill with dirt and salt. These are available in 3/16" steel only, with or without powder coat.
