Mopar Rock Rails

I am having mine installed at a dealership. But am having problems.

They are insisiting that no bolts go alone the top of the rock rails where the rails meet the body just under the doors.

They are saying the holes that are exposed after they installed the rails is on purpose!!!! They even tried to cap the with plastic rivits!!!! There's even a nice 1/4 inch gap between boy and rails!

WTF...

Attached is a pic.

This seems completely idiotic.

I have looked at the instructions and they clearly state to...

"install all 12 M8 flange nuts onto all 12 cap screws until hand tight."

Later it says to tighten them to the specs they provide...

I think i have an incredibly lazy tech.

I would love to show them pics of what other have had installed as evidence to their nonsense.

If anyone with mopar rock rails has a moment...coudl you take a picture of the rails with your doors open so that i can show them the nuts and bolts that are meant to go where the sill used to be?

Thank you!!!!

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

You MUST have those bolts installed but I'm guessing you figured that out by now. They didn't want to do it because it is a PITA and takes a lot of time!
