mine are the “switched” powder coated and “switched” bedliner. They have rust everywhere. @ROAM should be ashamed to release a product like this.I bought mine last year and they were back ordered for a while. The folks at ROAM told me they where switching powder coat companies due to rust issues. Mine are spotless. Although they do get mud trapped in the bottom part and you can see it through the holes on top. Kind of hard to clean that out.
Replaced them with what??I finally pulled the roam rails off my wife’s JL and replaced them with. Once I can find these a new home, I’ll be officially done and free of any roam products.
To the folks with rusting issues, I’m hopeful they will stand behind the product but I’d prepare yourself and wallet to having to correct the issues correctly.
I wonder if theyre made in an area or exposed to salt water at some point early on....
The area where the cut out for the step meats the step is where you see the rust start first atleast for me it was with the latest version of the frame mounted ones.I just installed a set of Roam frame rails a couple weeks ago. Before I installed them I put several coats of rattle can undercoat inside and under rails. The only thing I didn’t coat was the areas you see when standing beside the Jeep. We will see if it helps. I live in the south were salt isn’t an issue.
You may want to start a new thread with this question. Most people that “subscribe” to this one are unlikely to give Roam another penny. As I’ve said before, if you decide to purchase, do not expect good customer service or acceptable options to make things right if there is a problem.Any new problems with Roam side steps from folks that have purchased them recently. I've been peppering them with questions and thinking about getting the body mount version for a 2 door JL. Here's what I was just told re: rust issues.
"After complaints of people buying the bare metal, and leaving it to rust, we have decided not to do bare metal on most of our items. We can still bed line just about anything. It will be $100 extra on the 2 door. The e-coat is on all products except for the body mounted 4 door steps."
