The install is really easy.
One hint to make it easier is to loosen the wiring track harness to give more room for fiddling with the smaller rail mounting nuts and bolts.
One man job with a good floor jack to balance the runner on.

Re: RRO SuperSliders on '15 Altitude

Some folks have complained that these rails are not quite according to Hoyle, because they're not long enough and leave those gaps at either end, leaving the areas vulnerable.

But these seem to be the only rails that are actually available for the JGC, rails that aren't running boards.

I prefer the Trailhawk rails, but those seem to be unobtainium. I would rather have these because they don't extend out from the body at all.

So, I'm just curious if anyone has actually used the RRO Rails Out In Wild and had an issue with them, rather than the hypotheticals posited by the cognoscenti here.

Do you have any issues having to "step over" these when you get out of the Jeep?

(Oh by the way, those look nice…)

Re: RRO SuperSliders on '15 Altitude

I do not make any claims about theses rails function as protection for rock crawling. It's true, as you can see by the photo that they do not extend to the edge of the wheel well.
Entering and exiting is quite easy, although I do have to slightly step over them. One can see in the photo how far they set from the edge of the door frame.
I chose them so my wife and children had a bit of a step to use.

Re: RRO SuperSliders on '15 Altitude

Thank you for Posting the pics and info!

I'm looking and trying to decide on a set of sliders/rails for my new wk2 and have not yet found anything that I'm 100% sure of yet. As wharthung mentioned, these do look shorter than I would want because of the gaps on the end. Do they actually cover all the way from end to end? [ Sorry, you posted a reply as I was typing...] RRO's website made it look like they did but I could not be sure or that was just on other model jeeps.

Would you be able to take a couple of other pics of the ends? What is the over all length of these?

I do like that they extend out to the side for a bit more protection and don't think I would mind stepping over them.

Mopar PN 82213525AB seems to cover more... ANyone have any thoughts on these?

Is there nothing else out there for solid rock protection??

They are about 6 inches short of reaching the wheel well at each end. I agree that the photo on RRO website does not show this very well.
If I where concerned about damage while rock crawling I would not choose these rails for that reason.
They do look nice and offer rugged protection for what they do cover and create just enough of a step.
Keep in mind that these are for the Altitude which I believe has a different rocker panel than other models.

Re: RRO SuperSliders on '15 Altitude

Thanks! I may have to keep looking. These sounded perfect for me on the website but now I'm not so sure. I really do plan on rock crawling but I really want to have full coverage well to well.

I may see if they can be custom fit or modified by RRO if I can't find anything else...

Those are the Trailhawk rails. I haven't looked in a year or so, but early on they were hard to get. Maybe not so much now. Especially if they're bringing them back on the '17 Trailhawk.

I haven't found any other rails like the Trailhawk's, which is what I'm most interested in -- I don't want a step, just rails.

I was interested to see the other thread with some local sump skid plates -- before I only saw the ones from Australia.

Now if I can only find something to do about the air dam.
