Keep your rocker panels from being beaten to a pulp on the trail with Rugged Ridge's Side Armor. Built from heavy-duty 2 x 0.120 inch black texture powder coated steel tubing, these guards will take the beating that was meant for your body sheet metal. Simple bolt-on design utilizes existing body mount locations for a secure, rattle free installation. The black texture finish resists scratches and gives a slip-resistant surface for door entry. Sold as a pair and includes all necessary installation hardware. Will not fit factory rock rail option. This item carriers a 400lb max weight limit.
Not sure how this one got past engineering stage because it's a horrible design. I put them on and thought for sure I received the wrong items in the box. Called Rugged Ridge and exchanged (as I happen to live in same town as their warehouse) but the new ones were exactly the same.
First of all, don't plan on them being convenient for the rear doors because the step portion pretty much stops in front of the rear doors. I have two kids who need a step to get in and there isn't one even though it supposed to be for the 4-door?
And then, the front of the rockers go under the front fender to accomplish---er nothing. Hey RR, why not move the bar mounts back so the non-used area of the rocker will shift to be usable for the rear doors?
And lastly, there is this weird angle flare where the front of the rocker is wider than the stock fender flare but then it tapers as you go back towards the rear and ends up being a few inches away from the vehicle. It just looks ridiculously bad. Come on Rugged Ridge, you can do better than this, pull these off the market and correct your drawings please.
These will be a major P.I.T.A. to ship back...grrr. They get two stars for being solid but the bad design makes them worthless.
