HOW TO: Remove/replace roof rails on a 2012-14+ Jeep SRT

The roof rails on the 2012-13 Jeep SRT8 are simpley bolted down with 6 T25 torx bolts. You will need a t25 torx bit or driver and some thread lock. Simply unbolt the rails and remove. Clean the area under the rails with quick detailers and use this opportunity to wax the area. After removing the wax...add your newly painted rails and line up the bolt holes. Put a dab of thread lock on each bolt and hand tighten. DO NOT overtighten. Results below!

Nice man! From the first pics I thought they come stock color matched to the color of your SRT. Looks much nicer now. Also I see your altitude rear brow.. Will you be painting it to match your ride ?

Re: HOW TO: Remove/replace roof rails on a 2012-13 Jeep SRT

So the 6 bolts that hold the rails on won't match up with the rails from an Overland/Summit/etc?
