OK, someone has to say it, it might as well be me...if you had a hard time installing these thing then maybe you should reconsider jeep ownership and drive a Prius. I installed these BY MYSELF in under 30 minutes on the frozen ground with nothing but a socket wrench and a jack stand. "Its too heavy"! Oh freaking Waaaa, eat a steak and join a gym you limpwristed soyboy. My Gods I'm 55yo and you guys are embarrassing. Anyways, easy install, great packaging a sturdy. I would call these steps, rather than rock guards though, as the mounting design wont be up to any serious beatings. I just wanted a solid step to access my roof cage so no matter.
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.
This was the first thing that was added to my 2016 Unlimited. The install was done by myself and 8 year old son in about 40 mins. Could not have gone better. I held the rails up and he started the bolts, his small hands helped.
I purchased these to replace the stock rockrails that came on my 2016 Unlimited Black Bear Edition. I had read other reviews that stated these were difficult to install and the instructions were not very clear. These were a breeze for my 13 year old son and I to install without the instructions ( found them under styrofoam in the box after both were already installed). Total install time - 5 minutes each side to remove stock rockrails & 5 -7 minutes each side to bolt on the new Smittybuilt rails. Lined right up & I put the nuts on the 4 bolts while my son held up each end. Tightened them up & good to go.
Ordered these rocker guards for my daughters Jeep for a HS Graduation present. Installed in 45 minutes. Wish we would have done it sooner; someone t-boned her and these would have taken the other driver out and not harmed her 2014 Wrangler Unlimited. Would prefer an integrated foot pad on the steps otherwise an awesome add-on. Can't wait till next summer to add more Smittybuilt accessories when she is back from her first year of college.
These i'm not much better than the stock Rubicon ones. But they installed in less than 10 minutes on my lift. I would recommend these to a friend. And they look great but don't cover the body seem line on your jeep.
Looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures. Very sturdy design which gives it it's weight however that's what I want in a part...."a solid design". After reading the reviews myself before purchasing I read that someone recommended using a jack if installing the parts themselves. This was an excellent idea and one I used myself with absolutely no difficulty. All in all it took me no more than 30min. to install both sides and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Yes they were a little heavy but personally that's what I want in the parts I buy. I want to know they can take a beating and then some and I am confident that these side rails won't just give a helping hand getting into my lifted beauty but also offer protection from off road hazards and everyday careless drivers.
I got a little nervous buying these with some of the comments speaking of "hard to install" and "had to drill holes". But my situation was completely different, they bolted right on and I was able to drove off 20 minutes later.
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.
will this fit my 2005 TJ 4.0 SE?
Asked by Dan from on
Dan, the Smittybilt SRC Side Armor is only for the unlimited models, so will not fit your regular wheel base TJ. Here is the one you will want for your Jeep: http://www.4wd.com/Armor-Protection/SRC-Side-Armor.aspx?t_c=79&t_s=466&t_pt=5129&t_pn=S/B76631

Will this bumper fit on a 2016 jeep wrangler JK unlimited? On their website it only has it fitting up to 2015?
Asked by lolandra11 from Tacoma WA on
Hi lolandra11, This Smittybilt Rock Crawler Side Armor kit fits great on the 4 door Wranglers up through 2016, confirmed in the tech details. Thanks for your inquiry.

Will these rock rails work with my XRC armor (front, rear and cladding). Also will they survive the Rubicon trail?
Asked by Tank from Seattle, Wa on
Tank, the Smittybilt Rock Crawler Side Armor does indeed work with the XRC cladding and front and rear armor with no issues. They were made to work together! Smittybilt armor is made to stand up to daily driving as well as extreme trail abuse. I hope this helps!
