Does anyone know how wide the step is for the factory Rock Rails? Can't seem to find anything online.
 
Nope but we are all eager for you to figure it out and report back. 🍻
 
Older thread but why not...

I just removed my rock rails. They are nice and stout but barely a toe hold. End up kicking the rocker and scruffing the clear coat. Here is the comparison between running board and the rock rail. My guess is the rails are almost twice the weight and a bit shorter. Also has 2 more connection points.

They are slipperier when wet compared to bed lined Mopar side steps in pictures also. That with narrowness and depending on shoes, off you go.

There is that!!! I wore tennis shoes that gripped the rails to avoid busting my arse. But they will be great for rocky trail rides.

Well that makes sense because rock rails are not necessarily steps. They are “rock rails”. Which means they are protection for you undercarriage. If you want a step then you need to get a running board.
 
Thats why the NFab RKR rock rails have a seperate step hanging down at each door.

True. However, if you want rock rails then you don’t want anything hanging down like that. It will either get ripped off or smashed to hell. If you are choosing one based on appearance alone then it doesn’t matter and I like the Nfab product much better than running boards personally.
