Not available? Mopar Rock Rails for 2015 JGC Diesel

My local dealer said he spoke with his Mopar parts guy to confirm if the 2014 Rock Rails are the same for the 15 and the response is that they are not compatible with the JGC 15 Diesel due to some brackets or something. Is this true? Has anyone installed these with the new DEF factory skid plate which I assume is what they are talking about. I'm bummed since I was looking forward to the protection. Maybe it is the DEF wire harness which routes under the frame rail gets in the way?

I wouldnt worry about such small thing. You can always make it work. Its a tough install that you have to tweak anyway.

Re: Not available? Mopar Rock Rails for 2015 JGC Diesel

But my issue is that I want to pay the quoted 2.5 hours of labor for the dealer rather than get all frustrated spending a Saturday screwing around with it (I watched the YouTube). Plus, if it truly does not fit then I will really be disappointed.

If anyone HAS installed then a picture showing how it clears the DEF injection area would be awesome so I know what I am getting into if I have to install myself if the dealer sticks with what they are being told.

Personally I am very pleased I did not try and fit them myself. I think if you just use Doms full DEF shield, instead of the recent quick fix added by Jeep, you should be OK. I'm pretty sure someone on one of these forums has the bars on a 2015.

Re: Not available? Mopar Rock Rails for 2015 JGC Diesel

Well my 2015 is currently at an out of town dealer under repair. Once it returns home I have a set of Rockrails ready to be installed..by my local dealer...I, do not anticipate any issues. The OEM Def plate has been removed on mine and DOM plate installed instead.
There have been a few 2014 owners have these installed and honestly, other the factory plate, I am not aware of any other changes that would affect the install.

If your dealer is quoting only 2.5 hours of labor to install the Mopar Rock Rails they haven't done it before. It's more like a 4-6 hours.

As someone that had installed my own, 2.5 hours quote is pretty laughable. My set didnt have that good of tolerances and I had to do some custom fitting over 8 hours to install. But I love them as they are very robust.

Re: Not available? Mopar Rock Rails for 2015 JGC Diesel

I totally agree that 2.5 hours is laughable and that is exactly why I want to pay them. I do believe they have done this work and I think it is just one of those factory service labor hours that the computer tells them to charge.

Anyone out there with a 15 and Mopar Rock Rails?

Re: Not available? Mopar Rock Rails for 2015 JGC Diesel

No, I just search to see what it was that you were looking at and found those for sale at that website and I must say that I do like them and I may now want a set in the near future. I will have to look at the install video to see what all is required to install them.

Thank you for asking a question about them as I know found the running boards that I want to help my kiddos get into the GC
