Very heavy and sturdy
My driver side didn't line up, it's a common complaint. It looks like they welded the end on not very accurately. The mounting plate was just a little rotated off center.
The easy fix:
One end at a time. Hook the front that isn't lining up. Screw your locknuts up a couple turns. Drop the other end down and pull till it lines up. Took me 2 extra minutes to get it to bolt up without opening the holes up further. Pull it a little past where you need it and give yourself a little slack to bolt that end up also. No Drilling out the mount.

easy to install
It took longer to remove my factory rock sliders than it did to install these. Everything lined up and went on smoothly.

Awesome product, easy install
These rock rails took less than fifteen minutes to install with the help of an impact wrench and my wife holding them up. They look great and work great as a side step.

I bought these and am not the most mechanical person ever but these were EASY to install. I'm dying looking at all these comments saying they had to drill out holes and grind stuff away. Mine went right on with absolutely no problem. Just make sure you put the correct one on the correct side. The plate that you step on should line up with your door. Maybe these people had them backwards? I haven't used them on the rocks yet, a buddy of mine says they will only take one or two hits??? But I can't attest for that myself. They look awesome on my jeep Blaze!

Easy Install and looks great"
Product was packaged very well, and labeled correctly. Instructions were good, got the job done. The finish is great, perfect match to my rear XRC and front Atlas.
Install was easy, textbook bolt on, no issues with alignment!! I did add a dab of medium lock tight
Step is functional for the shorter family members, and top install. Provides more rocker protection then stockers.
Looks waaaaaay better then the plastic stocker ones.
Very happy with my purchase and didn't break the bank. Let's see how they hold up in a road salt.

I saw a lot of reviews about install being difficult. I think they have redisgned the brackets. It now uses the bolts that hold the body to the frame. Remove 4 nuts on each side of the jeep, lift them into place and put the nuts back on. Literally took less than 10 mintues per side to install. They look great, I have a smittybilt bumper and it matches the look and styling perfectly. I am not a heavy offroader or rock climber so these are perfect for my jeep.

Nice but clearly needs some adjustment
These were the best looking ones on the Market so I picked them up despite the issues with fit. Driver Side, no problem. Passenger Side wouldn't fit. Ended up having to file off about 1/8 of an inch on the front mount to get it around the body mount. It's a fantastic product but it's a shame that the fit problem goes unaddressed. It seems pretty common based on the reviews. If you don't mind a little extra work though these are the ones to pickup.

Nice and easy
Very easy to install! It took more time to take the OEM part off than to install the new bars. They look great and hopefully live up to the intended use.

rock crawler side armour
this is one the strongest bars i have ever had. for the price is well worth the added weight. very easy to install compared to any other bar..and serves as a big rock deflector. you can hear the rocks ringing off the bar while driving.
remove four bolts pre side and tighten took me 30mins at the most.. great bars,
