mopar accessories for our XJ's

im sure most of you have seen or heard of factorychryslerparts.com.

i work for a jeep dealer in massachusetts (i know, im the devil!) and was looking through the parts information for my 2000 XJ and i noticed that one of the accessory listings was for "guard kit, body side" and i looked into it a little more and noticed that these are basically mopar rock sliders....

now my question is.. has anyone actually seen these things? i can get a STUPID good deal on them, and im not looking for anything overly strong or powerful, but i am very curious to see what they look like before ordering them.. ive searched high and low and cant find photos of these anywhere.. help a brother out!

stock # 82205091

.....closest thing i can find:



From what I understand, they are more "show" than "go"
...not very prone to taking the abuse we "could" dish out to them.

They are for dress-up, not for protection.

They're factory running boards, not meant for rocks. On a DD for a good deal I'd run em though.

well thats kind of my deal. i got a steal on my 2000 XJ and i do take it out once in a while, but nothing wild or truly exciting really. the parts explosion that NW99XJ posted is all i could find as well. and cj7 tim, i was kind of looking for a middle of the road light protection thing, as i dont really wheel my DD too hard (i save that for my 96) and the price on them was like 80 bucks shipped... id rather bust up some 80$ rails than my rockers. thanks for your input guys!

IF you decide to get these, be sure to post up some really good pics of them before and after installation for all to see!!!!

final result, these no longer exist. factorychryslerparts.com refunded my 82 bucks yesterday, as they apparently had them listed as "in stock" but realistically, they arent. oh well!
