How long did it take you to get them? I have been waiting for 3 weeks so far.......
I waited a total of 4.5 weeks. Mine just shipped yesterday.

Were you able to program that aux button to turn on with dome lights? Since they turn on with key fob unlock
i just hooked them up to a aux switch. i didnot hook them up to my doom lights. I did have three lights that started to rust from water in them. 2 are no longer working. I would recommend checking the water proofing. it looks like they were not sealed properly. i think silicone or hot glue gun could fix it.

From my understanding the aux switches are programmable. I'm just wondering how programmable they are. Such as turn on with door unlock

You can barely see the logo if you use the black plate. It doesn't stand out at all and is very easy to overlook.
I'm sure it is but I feel the same way about the ACE trail doors as well. I understand they use these products to promote but having different logos all over the Jeep just isn't my thing. If they could be easily removed it wouldn't be an issue but these logos are usually cut into the metal. (I liken it to putting engine/suspension/wheel upgrade stickers on your windows. Some people like it but I don't see the need to promote K&N on your windows because you added a Cold Air Intake).

Yep. I generally don’t like license plate brackets with dealership names, etchings with dealer names, of products with logos all over them. It’d be one thing if you only had one brand of products so it was consistent, but it feels odd to me when it’s all over the place.

The @IronCrossAutomotive steps I ordered have a nice removable adhesive/metal badge that goes on the side of the steps. Great for those who want the badge, and those who don’t.

To each their own - I love getting to pick according to my own preference.

@DirtRoad1981

Yes, they will bolt right on and geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, will you see a major improvement in the look of your JLU with the pinch rails covered and the Rubi's on.

Be sure to get all the Rubi rail hardware from your friend!

Hey, you might benefit from watching this install video:

Thanks to this very informative thread, I finally settled on and received my Roam steps this week. They arrived sooner than I expected, well protected, and in perfect shape!

They are definitely hefty and very well built, so I’m super happy with them. I chose to leave the Roam logo blacked out, as I like the clean look and was worried about how a reflector would hold up over time. Hopefully soon I have the time to wire up the lights!

This thread should be stickied IMHO. Thanks all!

I ordered a set of NFAB rock rails with removable steps - best of both worlds for my level of off roading.
I have been eyeing those—how do you like them? Can you send/post pics with the steps on and off whenever you have a chance?
