Mopar Rock Rails on Grand Cherokee Summit

Hi, I'm looking at trading up y 2012 Overland to a 2015 Summit. Can anyone advise if it is possible to fit the mopar rock rails to the summit. Is there problem with either the Summit fender trim or the trim under the doors that needs to be removed for fitment of the rock rails?

If so, is it possible to modify either the rock rail slightly or the fender to get them to fit?

Thanks

It is possible but there are some issues fitting Mopar rock rails to summit
Don't remember the details but
zybane did a write up, search forum for his experience on a 2014 Summit

2014 Summit Modifications so far

Above is a link to Robertjeep's build who did the rock rails on his 2014 Summit. From the sounds of it, looks like the only issue was that it didn't line up with the fenders.

I notice your sig indicates Rockrails...are they installed yet? There was another user inquiring if there were any issues fitting these on the 2015, as it seems his dealer told him they would not be compatable.
(Ps my sig also indicates the Rockrails but mine are not actually installed as yet)

Re: Mopar Rock Rails on Grand Cherokee Summit

Yes I have installed the rock rails on my Overland - a bit trickier than last time, as I think I had a slightly older variant of the rails which whist they fitted needed a bit more coaxing into place - particularly the 3 lug bolts / nuts on the underside and getting them to grip when tightening them up.

Telliottaus. I am the member who was posting asking if they fit the 15 diesel. One question that I have is about that plastic harness that runs just inboard of the pinch weld. Do the bolts interfere with that. Can you provide a picture of that area so I can show my dealer and convince them the Mopar parts rep is just misinformed? I can see from under that the DEF skid is nowhere near that area so I don't know why they are telling me it won't fit. Thanks!

G, I we had no problems or interference with anything with the install on my Overland. I am in Australia and we don't have the def urea injector on our diesels so I dont know if it would interfere or not.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails on Grand Cherokee Summit

My dealer has opted out of the install. Seems they can't line up the underside bolts you mentioned.
Did you have issues getting them to line up?
Anyway my options now are to have the rails returned, or take to a body shop to install.
Dealer told me they need to drill to get fitted which they didn't want to do.
