Mine has no rust from this winter. We did coat the exposed metal areas though to protect and the cross bars stay on year- round. I love my RRO set-up and had a very wonderful experience with the company. Everyone should keep in mind that a lot has changed in the 3+ years since this thread was started.

You are very right about there customer service though.
I would have to agree. I have been having countless problems with my lift kit that I ordered from there.

Basically replacing everything in pieces for JBA stuff.

I have these, do you know how to get them off?


Just go to the Mopar Accessories site and look for the Production Roof Siderails. The install instructions show you how to remove the stock rails. Pretty straight foward and simple.

Here's a clipped picture from the instructions:

Took a quick look at the Thule bike racks I had previously installed on another vehicle. The included U-bolts are too narrow for the larger round tubes of the Rocky Road setup. In my case, I had a set of narrow crossbars and the wide bar mounts to attach them. The work fine on the Rocky Road crossbars but do create another step up above the roof line. Given the height of the Liberty, I can't say that putting a bike up there is easy.

I'll post pictures tomorrow but our Thule snowboard rack fits just fine on the RRO crossbars.

One small area of concern - it looks like the powder coating over a weld on the mounting plate is incomplete and I'm already seeing a bit of surface rust. I'll clean it up and coat it with rust paint.

Will toss up a couple of pictures once I mount the accessories (snowboard/bike carriers)

I'm trying to decide what diameter side rails to go with. 1 or 1.25" What diameter are yours?
