RRO Rock Rails Install

Hi everyone. I'm almost ready to order a set of the RRO step rails - I found a crew in Western Australia who have them and can ship them to me in Sydney for less than $100.

I'm curious to hear if some of you have installed these yourselves. I'm not experienced with this type of work so I'm not sure if I should find a panel shop to fit them for me or jump in "boots and all" and have a go at it myself.

Please share - I'd like to be able to point to them and say,"I fit those myself", but I don't want the end result to look like it.

Cheers, John.

After having watched the shop that installed mine do it, I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself if you aren't willing to break some parts. The shop that did mine broke several drill bits and even a few bolts. Where they bolt to the jeep is VERY strong and difficult to drill through.

Thats for the Mopar rock rails, not the RRO rails. The RRO rails mount a little differently.

Not on the underside which requires drilling through the pinch welds and on the side there are a few holds that have to be drilled as well. It's drilling through the pinch welds that everyone seems to break things on.

Would love to know the same thing, Im also looking at getting the same rails from the same company sent to Victoria, postage was $75. Pretty dam good postage cost.

Good video posted, would be happy to do it myself if it is similar to that.

from the website.....Our Jeep Cherokee KL rock sliders are very simple to install and are completely 'bolt on'. They mount on the sub-frame as well as along the body seam. Not mounting along the entire seam causes extreme stress with the leverage of an impact on the outer rocker itself. Our design distributes the load across a broad area instead of focusing it on small spots.

Very easy mounting system which includes inserts into factory holes means
ANYONE can install this at home very easily!

@rski, do you have either the RRO rails or the mopar rails? If not I'm telling you now, the RRO rails are not exactly "bolt-on" and they use quotations on the RRO website also. I'm aware of what the website says. If you read the instructions it will tell you you have to drill holes and anyone here who has installed the rails will vouch for the fact that you have to drill to install them.
