    Default Rocksliders

    Hello Everyone.

    I have been speaking with Monty for Rocksliders for my GV. BTW, Iíve just sold my 2015 and bought a 2019 demo model. So happy with it!

    Monty said he needs minimum of 5 committed interests before he manufacture the template, for it to make economic sense for him. Understandable... I have 2 others who are interested and committed. If anyone else in this forum is interested, please contact me. You can WhatsApp me on 0828380616.

    Look forward to hear from you.

    Interested. Depending on price though. Is there a ballpark figure?

    If his price and quality is good - no problem. My issue is more with the quality. I am talking of experience.

    Why don't you just speak to Uys @ Stofpad, as far as I know he has already done the homework (measurements, CAD drawings etc) they just need to be made

    I will find out the price from him. It will most probably be an estimated price.
    I have done 2 lift kits with him personally. So far, I have no issues. Jimmy owners also had done some mods with him and everyone I have spoken with have given me positive feedback. He doesnít have his won workshop anymore though.

    Will update the post.

    Thanks, my comment is based on my experience spending many couple of K with him.

    Parts out of spec and sent back, parts that I had to make fit etc.

    Hi IHthun
    I would be very interested based on price and design (I'm looking for round rocksliders like he (Monty)built for the Jimny) rather than the "step" type. I've fitted many accessories for my own Jimny and now GV as well as for customers and have never had a problem with his quality other than a front bumper whose powder coating was sub standard which was not his fault and which he replaced with no hesitation.

    Personally I am a bit worried about the new partnership. When I bought from Monty directly everything was smooth sailing, great product, great price, great service. With the opposite lock partnership there are none of Wizerds products available on their website. When I called for sliders for my Jimny I was told there is one set available and I could come and collect, as I was driving there to collect I got an email to say they were not in Midrand but at the Nampo show. I then asked them to contact me as soon as they were back to which they agreed. It's now 10 days after the show and I have had no feedback, so I went and bought the rock sliders elsewhere.

    Hello Everyone.

    I got the message back from Monty. Ball park figure for the Rocksliders will be R5800, ex VAT and installation. He required 50% deposit.
    If you are keen on this, please send me an email at [email protected] with your contact details.

    I share your concerns also. But if we manage this close, I'm sure Monty will come to the party for us. I will take lead on it.

    You mentioned you got yours from elsewhere. From whom did you get those from? Can they do RS for GVs also?

    Just to clarify my post, I have no concern about Monty's service or products, what I am worried about is the people marketing on his behalf. I sourced a set from a suzuki dealer who had ordered them for another customer who did't collect (got them for a great price) unfortunately I can't help with leads on bulk purchases

    Thanks for the feedback Monty, I really don't mean to harp on the subject but I am confused as to what exactly the state of affairs are.

    Am I correct in saying that:
    1. The Wizerd site is still running and selling as per usual?
    2. Wizerd no longer does installation or technical things (diff lock install, service etc) but installs can be done at opposite lock?
    3. Opposite lock stock and install Wizerd products (even though there is no mention of this on their website)

    Please accept these as serious questions and not stirring, as I say I have bought a few accessories etc for my Jimny from you and have always been really happy with the service and product, but I am really confused as to what the current state of affairs are?

    Good morning.

    Sorry for the slow reply I am on the road ofvisiting the branches..

    1. The Wizerd site is still running and selling as per usual?
    a. Yes all is as it was.
    2. Wizerd no longer does installation or technical things (diff lock install, service etc) but installs can be done at opposite lock?
    b. Opposite lock affiliated shops does the installations.
    3. Opposite lock stock and install Wizerd products (even though there is no mention of this on their website)
    c. We working on this problem. But go to the Wizerd page.

    Hope this helps
