Mopar rails received

Somebody else's video in Mopar Rock Rails.

RRO vs Mopar: RRO vs Mopar rails

I'm not going to post an install video a) already above, and b) I may have the dealer install both for warranty and for me to restock my garage to make the install safe and easy will be 1/2 the cost just in material/tools.

These. Things. Are. Heavy. And obviously heavy-duty. Declared weight 97lbs for the pair.

Pictures are worth 1,000 words:


Of note: The "step", horizontal surface is about 2-3/4" from the rocker panel; ~1-1/2" wider than the plastic sill.

Now that travel is over (for now) and we've moved into the new house, it's time to get the rails installed. I still dont have a lot of free time, so will have the dealer do the install. $750, shipped for the rails and $300 install..... just to allow MrsRojhan the security blanket to take the Rausch Creek confidence course ( of 'course' that's the only reason...).

Looks good , personally I think you made the right choice , I'd have gone the same route , only the $1700 price tag stopped me ( plus install )

I'll be looking for an off road review when installed

We paid $680 to our door.... Who ever quoted you $1700 should be smacked!

I've seen the install video and other writeups. However, since I'd need at least $150 in tools and supplies to do the job, plus the time, and the dealer gave me a discounted install of $300 (and Mopar warranty), it was an easy decision to have the dealer do it.

Now, whether I feel the same way after the job is done and I see the workmanship.... :P
