Question Why are the 2014 holes different???


Why are the 2014 holes different???
Just returned my second set of running boards bought for my new 2014 JKU. The holes are off and I do not want to drill my brand new jeep!
Is there a set of running boards that will fit my new 2014 without drilling??
smittybilt no, 4wd says they don't sell any and Quadratec says none.

If the 2015 holes are the same as the 2014, it is likely that companies would consider changing their design.

They aren't just holes anymore, they are now pre-tapped, no?

If your trying to install certain Smittybilt rails/side steps, it's not the Jeep it's the sliders. People have been tweaking them since the 07 came out because they didn't line up right.

Many of the retailers, Quadratec, 4WD, others are saying they don't have rails that fit a 2014! Anyone know a rail that is confirmed to fit?

I'm using Body Armor rock sliders on my 2014. Had no trouble with fitment.

Smittybilt, as another mentioned, may not lineup with ANY year Wrangler. Along with many other people, I had to modify the Smittybilt sliders extensively with a drill and grinder just to get 3 of the bolts to work. The 4th wouldn't without cutting the bracket off and rewelding it to the correct position. It's the Chinese that are failing, and those selling the Chinese parts are trying to blame Jeep...
