Ha I ran 37's on my tj with no sway bar for 3 years all it does is make the body roll more on turns. It gets a little scary, but I never felt like it got out of control. As for the "JKUR springs" giving more lift, I was making a point that you can get lift from the stronger springs by putting them on a light 2 door. And I can replace springs in less than an hour....

It does more to negatively affect your jeeps performance than just body roll. Running no away bar(s) is foolish.

I'm not claiming that everything I did in high school was smart. Just saying your not going to spontaniously go into a death roll because of a front sway bar

when i trimed my rub rails at the pinch seam i didnt realize how thick they were. took almost half a cutting wheel to get through one. check my build thread for pics. i agree that the way they mount and compared to somea ftermarket rails out there they arent the greatest for protection. better than having nothing and they are thick and sturdy as hell. i havent heard anyone having problems with what they were intended for. they can take a beating.

I just bought a "S" and was lucky enough to pick up a set of rubi rails today. I plan on installing them and wonder if it is self evident how they are hung?

Also, the previous 3 posts talked about trimming the rails or the pinch seam [not sure which]. Which? and Why?

Thanks,

John

You shouldn't have a problem, installation of the Rubi rails is pretty straightforward.

35" or larger tires and you will want to trim the Rubi rails and pinch seams or they could hit the tires, esp. when flexed.

Yeah, you'll figure it out as soon as you hold the rail up to fit it in place. It'll line up easy if it's on the right side. If not, put it on the other side.

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/side-ar...-11504-21.html

and, if so,

how well are they made and easily installed?

I cannot find any reviews on them when I googled.

Thanks,

John

From that page: "Will fit Rubicon models, but the factory rocker guards must be removed."

Recieved the Rubicon Rail from a friend and put them on my sport last night. Really gives it a finished look for now, better than nothing. Looking to add the Ace Rock Sliders at some point. Does anyone know if any other rock sliders would work with this setup?

I got tired of stalking CL for a pair of Rubi sliders for the JK so I bought a pair of JKU Rubi sliders on CL for $100 and cut them short. No shortage of JKU sliders. If you get them from a mod shop like I did, make sure you have two different sides, not two of the same side. The nuts bolts washers were about $15.00 at the hardware store for the stars. I cut one rail with the grinder and one rail with the sawzall, for chuckles, and had a neater cut with the sawzall. No sweat. But it didn't matter because you cant tell the difference after slopping on black RTV sealant over the cut metal to glue on the black plastic end cap from the cut-off piece. There is a trick to popping off the end cap but you will figure it out. I just used the sealant to hold the cap on the cut end of the rail, and it has worked fine in deep mud, trails, and rocks.

Anyway I did get hung up on the rocks a couple weeks ago at the Pickens County Sheriff's JeepFest obstacle course and see-sawed back and forth on the Rubi rail till they pulled me off. So I was glad I put it on because it would have otherwise crumpled the bottom seam. But I doubt the rail would stand up to any serious impact.
