Good luck. If you can get someone to help you while you install it will be a little easier when you are trying to get the holes aligned.

Cheers mate. I don't envy you, having to feed all those bolts in with that tool. Good luck with it.

Re: Rock Rails & Xpel Ultimate PPF installed

I did this install alone on my 2012 JGC. When you follow the directions you need to reverse the order of the inside/outside bolts. If you follow the instructions it is impossible. If you put the rail onto the OUTSIDE BOLTS FIRST then it is easy. Message/email me if you want more info but there really isn't more to it than that.

Oh, and I thought fishing the bolts into the body would be hard - it's actually really easy. The PITA piece is carving out the foam in the body cavity.

Got the first half of the th rails installed after so many delays. Thanks to MartyA for the tip on installing the cap screws first before the inside bolts. Have a little issue on the front part, can't see the other hole for the plastic trim to mount to. Will check it out when I finalize the install.
