I went from the Jeep dealer to my customize guy and after the lift, tires and rims, I realized that the rock rails are definitely in the way. Do I replace them, or cut them down, going back to my shop to figure it out. I really don't understand why they protrude into the wheel well so much anyway. Oh well, buyer beware! luckily it can be resolved.
If anyone near Virginia finds yourself in the predicament, and are interested, I might be interested in trading you my regular Rubi rails and some cash for your Moab rails. The Rubi rails are flat and much easier to trim. I've been going back and forth on changing to the Moab style rails.

You must trim the rails about 2" in order to run 35's and to actually offroad with 33's. If you trim the rail to the back bend they will easily clear the 35's. Easy to do drop the rails take it to a shop with a wet saw and they will make the cut for about 30 bucks. If you have questions pm me.

Not sure what the difference is between Moab rock rail and rubi rock is ( is it mopar's enhanced rock rail?? )
Anyway, Just finished my build, here r Some picks of the rubi rock rail after I trimmed it at an angle, put the plastic cap back on with jb wield and paint. At the same time I took the point off the pinch seem, then primed and painted. I have 2.5 lift with bfg 35" km2s, plus the ace slider. I think there is plenty of room.
There r a few threads on cutting the pinch seem and slider on here. I got the slant cut idea from some else's post, just don't remember who it was. I think it looks much better with the flow of all the other lines on the jeep being on a slant.
