Know these are not real rock rails. They are bolt ons that use brackets instead of being bolted to the frame. In other words, they are window dressing only.

You need to calm down with these hyperbolized statements. These Mopar rock rails are actually better than a lot of the poorly made rock rails, and if you want to add strength you can very easily drill them into the tub, so they would be reinforced while bolted through the tub. If you really felt the need to attach/weld the brackets instead of using bolts, lots of places can weld that for you.

I have already asked you this, but you did not give a reply, what aftermarket rock rails are you recommending that people should put on their TRX over the Mopar rails? Would you recommend modifying these Mopar rock rails? Instead of being such a know-it-all, add some value to the thread...

Looking through the thread I don't see a question.

Bottomline on these type of mall crawler accessories, these aluminum "rock sliders" are installed with brackets, not directly to the frame. As for suggesting that I look for something I have no use for, to satisfy your hyperbole, know that I'm not interested in doing so.

It was on my WTB post, you came into with the same exact comments and I asked what you would recommended for an aftermarket solution. You went silent, and I have to ask why you are trolling these threads if you have no value to add, and you just want to bash a product also, attached to the frame??? Body mounted is the way to go.

This is a quote from a well known, and highly regarded, offroader, who uses Savvy rails on his Wrangler. Savvy is one of the most respected brands out than in the Wrangler offroad community, and there is a reason they design their rails this way.

"While frame mounts sound stronger, they're not and they can also hang up due to their required mounting brackets that run under the tub between them and the frame. Serious rock crawlers all run body mounted rocker guards due to their added strength and better tub protection. Beginners or very casual offroaders tend to run frame mounted only because it sounds stronger or they're afraid to drill holes so they can mount the tub mounted rocker guards.

If you have the $$$ there is no better/stronger/better designed rocker guard than Savvy's which even includes a reinforcement that mounts from the inside to sandwich the tub."

I wouldn’t call them window dressing, they are designed to provide a certain amount of protection as per the RAM engineers. I believe they stated they will support up to 1/2 the trucks weight and definitely better than nothing.

Now for serious rock crawling a more robust solution would be better, it all depends on the need of the user. The factory solution maybe adequate for the casual off-roader.

I love the look of my Mopar rock rails compared to the running boards. It is just my opinion and like stated above it does offer some extra protection. To me who won’t be using them as rock rails maintains the stance of the truck. Just my 2 cents in case you were looking at them as just for the look.

I don’t do any with this TRX, have done plenty in the past with Wranglers and the like. As for my TRX I have the running boards on mine and happy with them for what I need. I like the look of the OEM rock rails just does not meet my needs on this truck and the wife appreciates the easy climb into the cab. They also do a decent job of protecting the sides of the truck from rocks, gravel and door dings...
