I’m looking at different rock rail options. One option is the MOPAR premium rails. I’ve not seen them in person, but in looking at online pictures they appear to extend into the front and rear wheels wells. Anyone using these and have any issues with tire clearance for larger tires? I know the some people had to shorten their stock JK rail to fit larger tires, and wondering if this is the same.

I’ve got them on my jeep (Moab take offs). I’ve been really happy with them.

Here’s some pictures that might help with the tire clearance questions. I don’t think you would have any issues there since they end right before the fender hits the wheel well

I can get more pictures tomorrow if you want.

Thanks, that helps a lot. The Q-Tec picture makes them look like they are almost touching the tires.

How well do these function as a step?

Any issues with a foot slipping off when wet?

Wifey likes 'em on our rig. As to how they work being wet, I can't say as of yet. We don't much of that around here. :)

Thank you for this. My wife is 5’1” ...... she has already told me that she will need a step. So, I am hunting around for mods for a Jeep I don’t even own yet!

I like the rails a lot - I have them on my Sport S - but I don’t think they work very well as a step. They are more for protection and to hide the pinch seam.

I step right over them and so does my wife who is 5’4”. If you can find a Moab on a lot somewhere I’d recommend looking at them in person.

My Sweetie is around 5'7", (and that varies if she's mad or not). :) I think there are are steps you can add to 'em To be honest, I haven't hunted for them. She's happy with the rig the way it is, (which makes me happy). :) It's her daily driver.

Next time you folks are standing by your Jeep with a tape measure, could you tell me how wide that they are? The LODs are about 4”..... if these are about the same, I might just go with these.....

I have the Mopar Performance Rock Rails on my 4-door Rubicon with 37" tires. There is plenty of room and no chance the tires are going to impact the rail. I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow when it's not dark.

They stick out 2.5" which has been fine for my family. You can't get your whole foot on it, but it's enough to lift yourself into the Jeep. They have a really nice rough finish, so I doubt there will be much slipping when wet.

The mud flaps are RokBlokz. They come with a cutout for the standard rock rails. I just trimmed out a little more with a Dremel tool to make them fit the Mopar Performance Rock Rails. It worked out great.

Thanks! And yes they worked out awesome. Nice job. Will be stealing your idea! Did you do rears? Couldn’t tell from the pictures. Appreciate the quick reply. Stay safe.
