Do the MOPAR rock rails cover the DEF injector?

And if they don't is the DEF cover compatible with them?

Running the DEF harness under the body like that, without protection, seems ludicrously careless for a "trail rated" vehicle.

I will be getting the MOPAR rock rails from my dealer. The parts department says $750 for the rails and the service department said $450 for fitting. Having heard some stories and read the installation instructions I think they can have the $450 with my blessing and heart felt thanks.

I think you can see from this that I already scuffed the paint on the bottom, and scraped the exhaust, so I was very close to ripping that harness out. Not good design.

Re: Do the MOPAR rock rails cover the DEF injector?

We are all aware of the amateur job done with the DEF injector. We have a group buy for a custom protection plate. A bunch of us are waiting for deliveries.

The rock rails mount on the outside of pinch weld and do not cover the hoses running across the frame or protect the injector. The DEF cover is inside the pinch weld away from the rock rails.

Work on the prices with your dealer. My dealer sold me the rock rails for $649 and they offered installation for $265. Mine were delivered a few days ago (it took four weeks) and I am still considering doing the installation myself.

If by DEF cover you mean dom42's skid plate, then yes it is compatible with the rock rails. I have the Mopar rails, Mopar skid plates, and Dom's skid plate all playing nicely together.

Re: Do the MOPAR rock rails cover the DEF injector?

I just got the CAD files for the GC. Excited to start making some new things for this truck. One in which is some rock sliders that will act as steps and slider and def line protector maybe the injector too........

What's your anticipated timeline? Was planning to get rock rails installed but might wait to see your design if it's not too long.
