Just bought these today at 4WP after reading all of the reviews on here and I could not be happier. So very glad I installed them myself instead of paying someone to install them for me. All it took was a 17mm socket, socket wrench, and a little elbow grease. The holes lined up perfectly and were very easy to install on my own. Took me about 30 minutes to install both driver and passenger side guards. I highly recommend this product for both the look and the price.
Excellent quality, sturdy, great looking and installed easily in only 20 minutes start to finish.
Bought a set the other day, installed them by my self in about an hour and a half, and that's taking the factory rock guards off. One bolt almost did not line up, but with a little (big) hammer work, was fine. I thought they went on pretty easy. (i'm over 70yr) They look great, a couple of wratchets and that big hammer, is all you need.
I read the reviews and comments on this product and the biggest complaint was that they were difficult to install do to the holes not lining up and people needed to slot them in order to make them fit. When the product came in (very quickly I might add), I was pleased to see the holes had been slotted so my thought was, great they listened to the people and corrected the issue. Well let me just say, the passenger side went on without any issues but the drivers side took about 3 hours of grinding, drilling and using a dremel tool to get it to fit. at one point I said that there was no way this was going to fit and was thinking of welding it on...but luckily it did not come down to that. I do have to say, I love the way they look and everyone noticed them immediately. I drove to the beach and people walking by it were looking and complimenting on them.
Great product , looks great !
These look great on my jeep but to install them is a pain in the butt had to drill the existing holes out to make it fit
Installed without assistance but help would have been better. One pre-drilled hole needed a small amount of additional drilling to install. These rock guards add a lot of lateral side impact protection due to the three heavy gauge steel tubes. All welds were well done and solid. I installed factory mud flaps after installing these nerf bars and was pleased to discover no modifications were required to the front mud flaps as I had originally feared. If you're looking for light weight "eye candy" skip these but if you're looking for solid (and attractive) protection this is it.
One side fit like a glove the other side needed a little work elongating the hole's no big deal
Easy to install and looks good. Will be curious to see how they hold up to use. They do have an ugly yellow name plate on the side. It is just stuck on with adhesive and I was able to easily remove them.
Driver side fit like a glove right of the the box installed in about 20 mins. Pass side needed the mounting holes elongated and "weld build up" ground off. Overall they are sturdy and look great. Disappointed in the supposed easy fit up.
Do these rails mount directly to the frame and not the body panels?
