Sourcing Mopar Rock Rails (stock shortage)
I have been looking for a while, to get some rock rails onto my '12 GC Overland. I had an appointment scheduled in Colorado Springs - but then got a call back saying the rails are on back order. They wanted approximately $140 to ship the parts from another dealership (I think the weight is around 95 lbs) - I said no to that as the price was already high enough for my tastes.
So - the bad news. My local dealership I use for service says 34 of the rock rails are currently on back order. Mopar, JustforJeeps and Chrysler Parts Direct are all out of stock.
Just got off the phone with Chrysler Parts Direct (Danny), and he said there is at least a 5 week wait from time of order until delivery.
Mopar: ~ $850.00
Chrysler Parts Direct: ~$677.04
If anyone on the forums happens to see this, I'd like to know if you can source any rails in Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, or Kansas, so I can snag them. Otherwise the wait will be lengthy and there goes my potential Christmas present from my wife! I thought it was cool she wanted to get them for me so any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
This totally sucks!
