Mopar Rock Rails

Did the Mopar rock rails ever come out? If so, does anyone know the part number?

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

I got a set on my limited. They suck and ripped right out. Much for for show than function.

Did the bolts shear?

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

I would like to see a rock rail that replaces the factory lower trim vs. going on below it. If not, maybe a lower profile rail that gives protection underneath that has an upsweeping side protection bar that can double as a step. Hopefully the aftermarket will catch up to the XK before too long.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

Something like the WJ Overland had would be perfect but the aftermarket still hasn't made one for the WK so don't hold your breath.

Usually the aftermarket ones don't have the best fit and finish to be putting on your $40,000 vehicle. I bought a set of Daystar rock rails for my Cherokee and wasn't happy with the quality... came to me prescratched and the welds weren't ground down, they were just powdercoated over. I didn't put them on because they didn't look so hot... would be fine on a dedicated trail rig that is going to be beat and scratched anyway.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

IIRC, There were pictures of the AEV Expedition XK w/ custom rock rails. I believe they were designed to replace the factory plastic trim and had additional underside protection. I recall reading that they are working on various parts now to include a proper offset wheel for production. They may be the source for such quality parts in the future. No matter how careful you are it is too easy to lose your line and bottom out your rocker panel. I can see some big dollar repairs w/ out a rock rail.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

I spent about $450 to fix the rocker on my Cherokee after sliding it into a rock while navigating a waterfall.

AEV is so backlogged with work they are slow to make any parts available anymore.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

Not bad but I would prefer something that sat a little closer to the body and replaced the black plastic part. Like the WJ Overland had.

Re: Mopar Rock Rails

No, the screws were fine, they had to put in little things to hold the screws and those gave way. it is a horrid design. No where near as rugged as the WJ ones.
