Again the dealer quoted me 3hrs and they did a good job. But if you are going to do it they have a lot of tips on the forums here is one Winch Mount and bumper

another site that has a bunch more that might help is JEEP FORUM

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

I've seen a lot of threads like the one you suggested above, however none seem to include a start to finish "how-to"

Thanks Wxchaser for the part numbers. I've looked them up but I can't find the Trailhawk part on the Mopar parts website. Where did you find it?

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

That number is for the TH that was produced back in 2013 so it may no longer come up. I have read on here that the these older rockrails will work but there's some modding that you have to do to get them to fit. I installed the ones that stick out on my 2011 and it took me about 8 hours to install by myself. If I were to do it again I would install the ones that do not stick out (like the current production TH rails) because you always had to step out over them when getting out of the vehicle. I did like the looks of them and the protection they provided. Ill try to find the correct part number for you. Heres the thread where I installed mine its in post 31 WK2 Rock Rail Install Pics.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Back in 2014 I put the "tube type" rails on my '13 TrailHawk
A little more info and helpful hints on the install here:
Start at post #20
My Trailhawk Mods...

Also, the instructions say to tuck in the lower portions of the inner fender well behind the end plates of the rails and use the plastic rivets. If I was to do it over I'd leave the inner fender outside of the rail end plates. This would prevent water from carrying fine silt and sand down into the rails.

Still have the stock TH rails, install hardware, and instructions (except for a couple of the plastic rivets), if interested hit me up.

Right after I installed the rails on mine, a beater pulled up next to me as I was parking and the clown in the passenger seat threw his door open hard. It hit the rails and left a dent in the edge of the guy's door. Needless to say, I kept the vehicle at ride height and didn't lower it to enter/exit in case that would allow the door to clear the rails.

I sent in my 2016 wk2 diesel on Friday to have the mopar trailhawk rock rails installed. They called me and said it is going to take a bit longer than originally quoted but they are getting it done. Hopefully tomorrow it will be ready. I even told the guy to check out youtube video of them being installed for help he said his guys were watching it lol. He told me the hard part is running the 10-12 bolts on each side and lining them up wth holes.

I recommend a dealer install on these, I did skid plates myself, and planning on tow hooks and tow hitch myself too but the rock rails I sent in for them, seems annoying for DIY job.

Just picked up my car yesterday from dealer. Took them a while to get it done. One thing I noticed today one of the bolts running along the top under the doors, the 6th hole (which is the round hole, others are square), they used a plastic rivet on both driver and passenger side. Not sure why. I called dealer and they said everything was put together as instructed and I can go back if there any issues, I told them I was worried rails will break off or something. Think it is structurally sound? Was thinking of putting JB weld on them.

The Mopar rock rails are notoriously difficult to get on. There are a myriad of bolt holes that need to line up and despite the car being built by robots, they just don't always. I got all my bolts in but only after jacking the car in places to get the holes to line up. A dealer hasn't got time for that sort of stuffing about. But don't worry, I've heard of much worse. Even with a few bolts missing, they are are unlikely to fall off. Anyway, they are not required for structural rigidity of the car, just for protection. However, it does kill the fun somewhat doesn't it when you know the job is not perfect.
