Anyone have K O Offroad rock rails?

Anyone have these rock rails? My wife bought me a front bumper from KO Offroad on eBay, but I didn't like the design so I traded it for a set of their rock rails. Their customer service has been awesome! They handled the exchange without a problem. I tried to do a search before I wrote this but I couldn't find much info.

The rails arrive on Friday so I will update this thread then.

Well I got two sets of the rock sliders today, one for my jeep and one for my wife's jeep. They were shipped quickly and packaged well. The fit and finish was good and the instal was quick. There were no instal instructions, but there isnt much to it. The sliders I purchased were bolt ons, but they make weld ons too. They use the two smaller bolts on either side of the body mounts. I was hoping for more of a stepping surface but there isn't much there.

It's about 1/2 inch away from the body or so, like I said definitely not a step.

Olsen, those look awesome - don't worry about the steps. I have the factory side steps, and I think they are at such an awkward height that they are useless for actually getting into the car, I skip them every time.

The look great. I just purchased the bolt on ones for my unlimited sport. Where did you bolt them onto? do you have any pictures of the where you connected them? Thanks.

If you look at your frame rail, where the body mounts are, you will see a large center bolt and two smaller nuts on either side. To mount the rails you have to remove the two nuts on either side of the bolt (2 nuts for the front mount and 2 nuts for the back). Put the rock rails in place then reinstall the nuts.

They are trash, I hate them. The upper bar is very close to the body and rocks get caught between the rail and body. The rocks chip the crap out of the paint. The rails themself are very thin walled.

Get something else

other than the paint being chipped up have they flexed into the sheet metal at all?? would some body armor right there prevent it the chipping?
