Here they are with the step and on the Jeep. I painted them with black textured paint and will install them later this week.

Finished Sliders

I have finished the rock rails and mounted them. Here are a couple pictures of them on the Jeep.

Wow that looks really good!! Now add some of that grip stuff to it and it'll be really awesome. How much to make mine like that?? :P

I don't want your d**n lemons! What the hell are these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN!

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

Thanks MacK87. I may add grip tape but first want to see how it is without it. The metal was cheap but it took me a while. How much money do you have? ;0)

Not much I would consider it if you were in driving range but you're really, really, far and driving three-four days isn't fun or cheap

Guess I have to keep my day job. Posion Syder will weld on their add-on Rico step for $75 if you ship yours to them but the Ricp steps are $190 so it adds up. I paid $80 for the rubi rails and spent about $100 on the metal, paint, and hardware to attached them.

Just picked up a set of rubicon rails off a 2012 4 door for my 2008 2 door. Same design I'm guessing unless anyone can confirm different?

Thanks a lot. Jeep starts messing with the tops on these newer models and it makes me question everything
