Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

If I am in a big parking lot, just put it into off road 1, knowing that someone is going to get a surprise if they fling their door open.

Urban protection! Same reason I put on a rear step hitch was to protect the rear bumper from assholes - and to be able to detail and load cargo onto the roof easier.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

I think the 800 shipped is the best one out there unless you live by that dealer in FL.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Honestly there are no specialty tools required aside from the Allen key that comes in the hardware kit. You do want to have a nut driver. It makes getting the nuts along the door sill on much easier.
You really don't need to drill anything according to the instructions, however I do recommend rounding out the holes along the pinch weld to give you a little more room for error when installing the stiffener plate and nuts. You'll see what I mean when you get under there.
Also have a floor or bottle jack. You'll need one to put leverage on the rail to "pop" it into place after installing the flag bolts. Jack stands are helpful too, unless you have a strong buddy helping. Install the hardware in this sequence:

1. Flag bolts (loose fit)
2. Sill nuts (just enough to grab a few threads)
3. Pinch weld bolts.

IIR, the instructions state to install the pinch weld bolts second, which makes installing the sill nuts nearly impossible.

One last thing..don't waste the time fumbling with removing the plastic trim piece along the door. Unless you plan on re using it someday, just use a chisel to remove the push pins along the bottom and then just pull the bastard off. You'll break the clips, but it won't matter if you're trashing that piece.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Both of the rock rails, standard and TH, are about 50 pounds?

And they protect what exactly, getting hi-centered?


Never mind, I JUST saw the video. For rock crawling...

I see a lot of the tubular step boards rust out over time -- are these difficult to keep clean way up in there?

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

They don't really have a lot of places for dirt/ water to get inside. That said, these things are made of heavy gauge steel with a tough powder coating. They aren't your cheap light gauge running board material. Even if they began to rust inside, it would take a loooong time for it to go all the way through.

I'm getting ready to install my second set next week. In my opinion, if you're doing any off road driving, they are the only way to go. Plus they look really good.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

You getting TH or standard?

Anyone know if the TH version is lighter without the step bar?

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

My best guess is it would be lighter. I have the TH version.
