2021 Rubicon 3.0 Turbo Diesel
I was looking to purchase a set of Performance Rock rails, I like the look because they are wider than the standard Rock Rails that come on the Rubicon. I was hoping they would help save my rear fenders and hinges from getting any more damage from rocks being tossed up from the front wheels. In searching fitment it says they will not work on a 4 door Rubicon with a 3.0 Diesel. But most other rock rails do not make this claim. Would anyone know why these would not fit?

Any guidance would greatly be appreciated

Did you ever get an answer to this? I found a set, but read the same about them not fitting the Diesel.

Yes Sir! Picked up a set from the dealer 20 minute install
The instructions they pack are for the standard rails so the images do not help. There is a Left / Right rail but they are not marked so if things do not line up just swap sides

Awesome! Thanks for the help. How are you liking them? Work well as a step? Also have you used them as sliders? With the extra weight of the diesel i was wondering if bending was the concern with the diesels.

Nice. But there should be a RH and LH stamped on each one like this pic 👍🏻

Mine had no markings but it was easy to figure out
They look great - hope you like them
