Re: WK2 Rock Rails In!

YEP i got the same quote from my dealer.. i got to save a few more $$ before i get mine but the hole thing that some people got to figure out is do you want a step or a rock rail / slider I am not looking for a step, I want the rock to PUSH the JeeP away and not bend the bottom door sill when i bottom out on a bolder I was really impressed that Mopar had such a beefy rail alot of money but on my (old) JK i spent about that much for the RIVER RAIDERS rock rails / sliders and they took alot of abuse and they mirror the mopar rails.... IMO if you get the Tube steps that's what your getting STEPS and minimal protection

Jacking up the WK2 with the rock rails?

Now that I have the mopar rock rails installed how do I jack the truck up? Do the rock rails block the original jacking points? Can I just use a bottle jack or my hilift to jack it up by the rock rail?

Hi Scarps,

Where did you purchase them from? And how much $$$$ ?

I've been looking at importing them for around $1100 AUD delivered.

Thanks,

Kev

If you don't get the ebay ones, it looks like leo muller in brisbane still has them 'on special' for $1200 - includes delivery anywhere in Australia - I'm in Perth - took 5 days direct from the warehouse in Melbourne http://www.chryslerjeepshop.com.au/a...ee-rock-rails/

Re: WK2 Rock Rails In!

Thanks guys - emailed eBay seller for postage quote, and emailed Leo Muller parts for availability.

What's everyone's opinion of the scratches on the rails on eBay? Looks to me like it could be an easy fix if required. - hardest thing would be matching the paint (may have to spray the whole lot in which case may not be worth the saving)

Kev.
