Offroad Animal Rock Rails installed

Today I installed the offroad animal rock rails. I had to go to work to do it since we have a nutsert gun. The install went pretty smooth. The instructions are decent so I didn't do step by step pictures. One thing I did do was change the size of the m6 bolts that go in the side of the rails. The nutsert gun uses 1/4-20 size nutserts so I bought stainless steel button head bolts in 1/4-20 which are slightly bigger than what they give you. It took me 3 hours but it I could have done it in 2 hours. (b s n with the boss). Another thing I realized was they marked the packaging with left and right. Well I guess either they miss labeled them or austraila is backwards because the right side rail went on the left and left side went on the right. As you will see in one of the pictures is a large gap between the body and the top of the rail in the rear. I may try to cover that somehow to keep stuff from getting in there though you don't see it with the door closed. Very happy so far. Next on the list is the hidden winch mount and front bumper.

Looks clean, I like there bumpers but not sure I want to drop the coin. I have been off road a bunch in my 13 that I bought new and the only damage is to the lower fascia and plastic sump cover I think its called.

Oh and I think I crushed an axle nut or something that was repaired a while back, can not remember the specifics on that deal?

Just ordered a lower front fascia for 80 bux.

Good work! Is there a cost saving or benefit over the Mopar rails? They look pretty similar to what came on my TH in the pics. I actually wish I’d have skipped them to get something a bit wider to step on and to protect against door dings. But then again that would just get mud on the pants legs when sliding out.

They are much cheaper than the mopar rails. They cost me $650 including shipping.

It's cool to be able to do this kind of work. I needed to do some work in the salon, I was at the master. It cost me dearly.
