The lifetime alignment. Our local Firestone dealer closed so that explains it.

Put clearcoat on the rock rail end caps and put a second coat of paint on the rock rails. Tomorrow will be the first of two coats of clearcoat.

They're the same OEM standard rock rails everyone else has. I just put rust inhibitor on and painted them. They're just as beefy as anyone else's Mopar rock rails.

Don't know, haven't had them on this Jeep, yet. My 2002 had them and I'd say they would have. Here's the totaled picture of it.

I replaced my WJ for a WJ for a WJ, because the first one saved my life. Here they are, in secession:

Holy hell. You mind sharing what happened?

And in keeping with the thread; I bought some LEDs to use as fogs to be mounted next to the tow hooks for when it gets really bad

Damn man, I'm speechless after reading that. Hope you're doing better, and I can't believe they tried to screw you over like that (those kind of legal horror stories is one of the reasons I own a dashcam now). Thank you for sharing
