Can anyone with them confirm they stick out enough to prevent cars from hitting the doors? The ones on my old vehicle (2005 Toyota 4Runner) did exactly that.
They absolutely do not stick out too far. They extend out maybe only a fraction of a half inch, at best, than the chrome side door molding that runs along the length of the doors. They only appear to stick out farther because the lower part of the vehicle (bottom of the doors and side panels) are tapered in as you get lower.
Height-wise, from the ground, they are maybe an inch lower, again at best, than the bottom of the vehicle. Ground clearance is not an issue. Remember, this is a Jeep. Additionally, when I have the Quadra Lift on my Overland set at the Normal Ride Height (NRH) it compensates for any of this.
If you are really worried about the tubulars from sticking out, or appearing as if they stick out, I would suggest the black tubulars. The matte black definitely blends well with the lower running moldings and the wheel well moldings. They are definitely not an eye-sore. This is my opinion.
