Buy the mopar ones
Cheaper
Then cut the outside rails off and you have a TH rock rail

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Rats, I'm missing 2 of the flange nut. I hope those are not hard to find (in black?). One of my head cap screws doesn't have the washer welded to it, I can probably glue one to it LOL. Now for the plastic rivits, missing 2... sigh. Anways.. the manual that came with the TH is the same one for the one with the tubes.

Those flag bolts are going to be hard to find. The first stet of skid plates I got from the dealer didn't have hardware and the dealer had to re-order the plates...they couldn't get the hardware separate.

Hope that's not the case with the rock rails

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

Good thing it's not the flag bolts I'm missing

Heading off to Ace later to see if they have the flange nut in black.

Thinking of taking off the rock rails. Would anybody here buy them? They are in perfect condition.

I guarantee you would find a buyer without much issue. The bigger issue is going to be getting the star nuts off the small bolts in the door sill

I will have someone do the uninstall for me if I decide to go that route.

It looks like the rails might have gone out of production. If anyone is interested, PM me an offer. They aren't officially for sale, although I would probably let them go for the right price.

I will look further into it and report back in a day or so.

Awesome! It's a great combo, and I'm sure the diesel is great as well. Assuming the rails do fit (I'm 95% sure they do) and you install them, make sure to post some pictures here. I'm thinking that I maybe should have gone with the Trailhawk rails instead of the regular Mopar ones.
I finally got around to ordering the Trailhawk rails yesterday. They should be here Monday. I'll be sure to upload pictures once I get around to installing them.

Re: MOPAR Rock Rails Installed - Picture Laden

I got one half of the job done last Sunday. It probably will be faster if you have two persons working, much faster if both have experience working on cars haha
