Does anyone know if the WeatherTech Rubicon mud flaps will fit a MOAB? I’ve yet to determine if the Rubicon and MOAB share the exact same rock rails or not.
I believe MOAB’s rails stick out with a bit of a step ledge. I think they may be called MOPAR Performance Rock Rails or something like that. I have no idea how that impacts the mud flaps but they are different than Rubicon.

Did anyone figure this out for Sahara Moab w/ " Heavy duty Rock Slider w/ Step Assist" option?
I'm so confused on what would fit...

I own a 2-door Sport with the same rock sliders, and it looks like they protrude into the wheel well as much as yours do. I discussed with RokBlokz directly last week, but they do not make cut-outs for these sliders, even though they are a MOPAR factory option.

Unless someone has figured out a better solution, the only thing we can do is purchase the solid flaps and make our own cut-outs for the sliders. I am a terrible artist, but bought a set of flaps anyway. For how much they cost, I just hope I don't mess them up! Appreciate any pointers from those who might have done this already.

Rokblokz already have the cutouts for the sliders...

Unfortunately, they do not, and I verified this by speaking with RokBlokz directly. Look closely...these are not the Rubicon sliders. They are MOPAR's heavy duty rock sliders with step assist, as Mike mentioned above. Much different shape, unfortunately. That said...if you are seeing something on their website that we may have missed, PLEASE share!

Also...I found this elsewhere in the forums from a Sahara owner with side steps:

Rokblokz vs. 2020 Sahara. | 2018+ Jeep Wrangler Forums (JL / JLU) - Rubicon, Sahara, Sport, Unlimited - JLwranglerforums.com

Even though his steps/rails are much different, I think his solution might work for our configuration. Will definitely attempt this before cutting anything.

maybe if that is the case you can simply modify that hole that is there for the rubicon sliders. I just installed a set on my 4xe this weekend when installing a lift, I could see it being easy to install without the cutout (they will bend to fit temporarily) then trace the slider and cut out with a dremel.

or pull the sliders off and cut them down...

Thanks, Gary...I considered starting with the Rubicon sliders too, but their profile is much different than the heavy-duty sliders. Better to just trace and cut from scratch. However, I'm hoping that the alternate installation instructions I linked above, will work in this situation. Seems promising, and I hope it helps others who haven't discovered it yet.

I must be missing something, but I have a JLU Recon so have the same Mopar Enhanced Rock Sliders and had no issues installing the Rokblokz. I only installed the fronts as I have no need for the rears. I did the XL version since I plan to get wider wheels at some point.

Does anyone know if the rokblockz XL long fronts from a gladiator will fit on a regular rubicon. They don’t offer the XL long under the regular option and I’d like that extra little bit of length.

I'd be shocked if it didn't. They are about 99% the same from the B-pillar forward. I'm sure Rockblockz could tell you.
