Rails and Steps?

Has anyone installed a set of Nerf bars over a set of factory OEM Rock Rails? I just got my Rugged Ridge 3" tube steps installed and they had to remove the OEM rails in order to put them on. I kind of miss the look of the rails.

We were thinking of modifying the rails to work with the tube steps. Just wondering if anyone has done this before.

Thanks.

Like you I did not care for the "unfinished" look after pulling the rubi rails and installing my PS Knockers... I looked at modifying and it IS possible - but you gotta be handy with a cutter and welder to incorporate all the mount points... I havent simply becuase its functional and the knockers "sorta" hide the pinch seam...

There are some steps/sliders that can mount in conjunction with the factory rails. The Barricade Rock Sliders are one of those parts. These bolt to the body mounts and will fit with the OE rails. If you can get those rails back and return the RR steps, I can get you a price on the Barricade Rails!

Received and replied to. If you're like me you hate the time between ordering and receiving parts. We keep it to a minimum by shipping all in stock items the same day if you order before 3:00 pm est, but if you'd like to pick up your parts you can do that too. Let me know what you think of the price I quoted you and if you're ready to order!

Ryan

Do you have a picture that shows them mounted with the factory sliders? The only ones that I see is without factory rails. If they fit with the factory sliders and also provide a step send me a quote shipped to FL.

Thanks

Thanks Ryan for the quote. I need to find out what I can sell my Rugged Ridge steps for first and if it will be worth it since I can't return them since they've already been installed.
