MBRP Rock Rails

MBRP#130714

I will be installing these bad boys on my JKU today/tomorrow between work and play. I could not find ANY info on them via forums or google. This should be fun!

The rail that you see on the slider itself is bolted on. I will get some up close pics. There is also a step that you can bolt on to the bottom for the ladies in your life.

Enjoy.

I had a set.I did have some problems when I mounted them.they would not mount evenly and was to close to the body and had to use washers to shim it out so not to rub.

They would flex using the step.
would not recommend lifting with any kind of jack on any part of the rail.have seen pics of damage to the body that some one used a high lift jack on them


I think if they were fully welded at the seams and had more supports welded in them they would be a lot stronger.

They do look good once they are on and the steps are nice. But should come off if going off road.

I only went off road once when I had them.They did OK but but never rely hit them against anything hard to see how they would hold up.


This is what mine looked like after having them for 2 years

damn! is that rust??

the steps will only be on during the week if the wife is using the Jeep. I figured they would be a tough fit just like Smittybilt products are.

thanks for the heads up!

yes it is rust.I think they have a 3 year warranty on the powder coat or something like that but I didn't know about it back then.

Let's have a party,

Jeff, Steve and I did a bunch of CBs. We're pretty good.

Brian (yellow TJ Brian, not Tattoo Brian) has a set of Walker Evans beadlocks, His father-in-law has worked for Goodyear and wheeled for years so his wife helps with the tire installs. You should train your wife to do that!! It's sexy to see a woman installing beadlocks!!

MBRP seems to have a problem finishing/coating their products. I have their "black" exhaust. First was replaced under warranty. Second did the same thing, but they wouldn't do anything about it. It looks like total shit.

sounds good!

yeah, seems like most powdercoat jobs suck. our paint/powdercoat guy is pretty dang solid....also helps for getting parts dirt cheap, even with throwing on some powdercoat, ill still be a couple hundred cheaper than buying them new. im sure they will stay on for a couple few months and then ill do something else when i go taller on the lift

alright...did them last night so no action shots...advice....

you have to reuse the stock bolts that come out of the body (if you have the stock rock rails). My JKU did not have the bolts but the clips are already in the rub. 8mm bolts and washers. If you want to replace them all like i did to match the hardware that you use for the pinch weld, snag up some 5/16" bolts, washers and automotive clips from lowes....ran about ten bucks.

here are some pics. there is a small amount of adjust ability from front to rear which is nice. all the holes lined up great and did not have to rig up any quick fixes.

the tube on the top bolts on nice and easy to the rail. there are holes in the bottom of the rails that allows you to mount and tighten up all the hardware. not a HUGE fan of the open space that can collect mud and catch on edges but it is what it is.....enjoy.
