Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Those are nice, although for half the money I am choosing the RRO Super Sliders

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Nice Job! I think that the Mopar Rock Rails look the best ! I waited about 2 months for mine and I also had the dealer install them ! well worth the wait!!

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Thanks WxChaser, nice job. Hoping to get these, how long did it take to get them shipped in? What was the hold up in the installation? 12 hours sounds like they couldn't work out the instructions

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Do these work as a step or are they slippery when wet??? These look the best, dont really like any of the running boards offered.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Not so much as a step, and yes they are slippery when wet, nice step for cargo on roof, and to be honest, they always rub my leg getting in and out, but I wouldn't change them for anything!! They take a little getting use to that's all

I wonder if you could spray something on them to improve grip without changing how they look. Like spray on bed liner or something. Passengers would inevitably try to use them as a step and I'd hate for someone to get injured.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

So, I bought my rock rails almost exactly 2 years ago..... and never put them on lol.
Just got busy, and it hasn't been a priority so they've just been sitting in the box in the garage!

I pulled them out today and stuck the box in the back of the jeep, so now I'll have to look at them until either I install them or pay someone else to!

Problem is, when I opened the box I found half of the hardware is completely missing... Weird thing is, while I'm missing some or most of every kind of fastener, I'm missing ALL of the flag bolts and hex bolts! If anything fell out of a hole in the beat up box you'd think it would have been the smaller stuff...

I can replace most everything else, but the flag bolts have me a bit concerned... Anyone seen anything like them before? Are they just made for this application?

I emailed where I bought it from, dealership in PA but I haven't heard anything. still have the receipt. UPS guy remembers them very well too lol.

Also emailed moparonlineparts.com, who told me the only way to get them was to buy another set.... don't think I will do that.

So stalled yet again for the moment. Really good pics of them in this thread WK2 Rock Rail Install Pics.
I might just try to weld things to bolts until I get some that work if I can't source the originals.

From what I see of the MY 14 it should be the same rock rails from the MY 12 - 13 and 14 will all fit
I have not seen a design change to the chassis.
