After a long, long wait to even get the rock rails into stock - and a tortuous installation by a nearby Jeep dealership - the installation of the MOPAR rock rails onto my 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland is now complete!

For those wanting differing aspects and views of the rock rails - I created this thread to help provide that for anyone interested.

IMHO the MOPAR rails are much sturdier than the Rocky Road version of their sliders or supersliders, plus the MOPAR rails extend along the full length of the body versus the RR. Probably the Rocky Road sliders or supersliders are much easier to install though.

These are wide enough to use as a step, and much more rigid than the side steps are.

Nope - these are the MOPAR rock rails spec'd for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It took the dealership over 12 hours and some work was never finished, like the plastic cap on the front end of the rails.

Thanks for the pics. I heard it was a decent job to install. Overall are you happy with them, or are there things you would change.
Do they scratch easily? Also am I right in that clearance does not change at all?
Cheers, Paul

I noticed on the Mopar site there are no rock rails listed for MY14. Is this common in the early days, or are they really not going to put out rock rails?

It's not rocket design stuff .
Not sure how much longer I can keep my 1k $ stash intact .

Thanks WxChaser, nice job. Hoping to get these, how long did it take to get them shipped in? What was the hold up in the installation? 12 hours sounds like they couldn't work out the instructions :lol:

Not so much as a step, and yes they are slippery when wet, nice step for cargo on roof, and to be honest, they always rub my leg getting in and out, but I wouldn't change them for anything!! They take a little getting use to that's all :thumbsup::cool:

Do these work as a step or are they slippery when wet??? These look the best, dont really like any of the running boards offered.
They are More for protection then a step.
