If you want it, better start looking for it now. The last time I followed a rock rail thread it was on national back order.

The dealer I am working with says he has the 82212157 (not AB) in stock.

That is why I want to know the difference.

It's all good I'm just kidding.. They came up on the search together so I thought that might be it. Hope you figure it out. That's nerve racking

Yes, they can be used as a step.

Re: Talk me out of this first mod.....

So does anyone know of any online suppliers that have the rails in stock? I find some will say call to order, no doubt not in stock, while others won't say.

I emailed with a mopar.com and moparpartsonline.com and both verified they don't have them in stock. Local dealers have no stock and no eta. (also 1200$cad)
edit:moparsupercenter now confirmed not in stock either

Thanks

I ordered mine last week and have been told only 4 dealers in country have them in stock, so of course not where I ordered from, but a shipment of them was scheduled for 4-15-14.

That's one of the reasons why I love mine!

I was watching TV one day at home, had the window open, then I heard this loud bang followed by loud profanity. Some idiot in a Grand Prix was apparently angry and had opened up the door right into my rock rail and did a nice number on it. No ding for me, but they got one heck of a CREASE. I looked out the window and just quietly laughed.

Mine are black, I just repaint them when they start to look bad. Why is that? They're easily chipped and scratched.

Re: Talk me out of this first mod.....

hmm, I am also interested in these rock rails if they can indeed be used efficiently as a step... would someone maybe take some pictures please .. also how much do you think they can hold... I have some friends who weigh over 200lbs and I don't want them ripping them off my truck ..

also I would like to know the different between the 2 part numbers.

Check out my thread in my signature, I have lots of pictures. You will have to search through the thread to find them.

They can hold a ton of weight, as they are steel and bolted directly to the frame. Some people use them as a jack point.

One of the part numbers is for the regular rails, the other is for the Trailhawk rails (same but don't have the step).
