Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Man these really look good -- I need steps for mine but these look so much better. Once installed, can they easily be removed? Anybody know about installation instructions?

Sorry about the quality.
Is there any chance you could get a photo or two from father away, perhaps with an angle similar to the one pictured below? The rock rails look great, by the way!

Sorry about the delay, hadn't had a chance for a good photo opportunity, still wasn't a good day for it but I was taking them to show you can get the mud flaps on the front with the rock rails.

I added a few extra in, where the GC is lower I'm in sport mode, the higher suspension is off road 2.

I'm waiting on the rails to be delivered to my dealer, but I got to thinking about your statement here. About 15 years ago I built a storage shed for my backyard and put a ram on it so I could drive my tractor in and out. I painted and sealed the ramp and quickly found that it became very slippery when wet and could double as a ski slope with just a bit of snow. I got some traction strips at the hardware store (the ones with a sandpaper like finish on one side and glue on the other) and installed them on the ramp. After 15 years of people walking, tractors driving and canoes being dragged over them, they are still firmly attached and still look and work well.

The strips are about 3" wide and can be cut to length. I'm think that one of these strips on top of each rail would provide the traction for those (like my wife) who will insist on using them as steps and also for those trying to load a canoe on top of the vehicle.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

My experience in putting the anti-slip traction strips on the rock rails was mixed. They worked in snow and wet conditions - but when you get to the warm weather months and you're wearing shorts - look out!

After nailing my calves a few times, and my wife complaining about them too - I took them off, never to return again. I wasn't happy with the results plus the rails look better naked. I've thought of Rhino liner or something similar, but haven't gone that route yet.

Oddly enough, my wife is happier standing on the rock rails than she was on the side steps. She never trusted the fake rubber checker plate pads that were actually made of a slippery hard plastic.
