Does anyone have first hand experience with the quality of rro's welds and construction? Other than pics? I need help?
Not that I'm putting a hard sell on the Mopar rock rails and dissing the RRO product, but I guess I don't see why anyone with a WK2 would need super heavy duty rock rails.
Yeah you can take thise off road, but with 4WIS these puppies aren't made for hardcore rock crawling. IMO, if you're playing with these things around rocks, you best be aiming away from them. Again that's just my opinion.
Something else to keep in the back of your mind, the heavier weight stuff you bolt on, the more strain it's going to put on your suspension resulting on it sagging and losing ground clearance (more so for the folks who didn't spring for QL). I learned that hard lesson on my JK. I lost over an inch of ground clearance just by bolting on bumpers, rock rails and a gas tank skid.
