Rock Hard 4x4's locking collars and caps are solid 1/2" thick CNC machined steel and produced in house. Each cap is secured to it's matching collar with six 5/16" x 1" grade 8 socket head cap screws. Once a cap is secured to it's collar it becomes a solid, unbreakable joint. This means assembly and disassembly is achieved without welding or cutting which could potentially damage your Jeep's interior or expensive cage powder coat/paint finish.

WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm
The concept for Nebraska-based Rockhard 4x4 was started in the 1980s by Lewish Barth and his son, James. The two of them had been building off-road cages and bumpers for more than 20 years. By the 1990s, the duo was building so many cages for friends that transporting them became quite difficult. Welding the cage in was not something that everyone could do, and that’s when the bolt-in design was born. It was at that time that Rockhard 4x4 became home of the “do it yourself” cage installation. The brand has since evolved from DIY cage installation to a full-service manufacturing plant.
Rockhard 4x4 employs state-of-the-art CNC machining centers and combines that with laser cut precision and extraordinary craftsmanship. With this approach, Rockhard is able to take the bolt-in design of bumpers, cages, sliders, and skid plates to the next level. The company’s patented locking collar design sets itself apart in the aftermarket industry with its superior quality and proven strength. The locking collar connection is irrefutably strong and arguably stronger than other weld-in cages. While many competitors have tried to duplicate its design, none have come even close to the quality and workmanship offered by Rockhard 4x4.
Rockhard 4x4 is known for producing exterior products that make off-roading in Jeeps a lot safer, smoother, and more comfortable. Its products are easy to install, provide paramount protection, exude aggressive styling, and won’t break the bank.
