Mopar Side Steps/Running Boards

My wife found a pair of these on Amazon for $345. Would these look good on my 2013 Jeep Rubicon? Are they quality products? Other suggestions? I really appreciate the responses that I am sure are to follow. Yall are great!

You would have to remove your Rubi rock rails to put them on. They will look fine, but I would pass unless you plan on never going off-road. They will not hold up to off-roading. You can add Ace rock rails with your Rubi rails.

Plus, you can find them used as plenty of members pull those plastic steps for rock rails/sliders. So I'd pass on the Amazon deal. If you want the steps, search the classifieds section for some take-offs. I bought a pair for our X for less than $100 slightly used.

Since you have a Rubicon, I'd echo pathermark's sentiments and add Ace sliders to have both a step and off road protection. That set-up looks really good and is very popular here.

Your dealer should be able to sell them for less as well.

I highly recommend ACE Rock Rails

I wanted to add some protection on my 2013 Rubicon. I'm not a mall rat, but I do the grocery shopping, etc. 10 years and still trying to figure that one out. I installed nerf bars on my 1995 Wrangler and after over 17 years never had a door ding. Lots of dings on the nerf bars. The ACE Rock Rails are a definite must. They look great. All you have to do is order them, watch the installation video, and when they arrive...install. Got my neighbor, air compressor, essential air tools, and the ACE Rock Rails were installed before we could down half a Fosters Oil Can. Yea...that fast. And leave the original rock rails on. These look like they come from the factory and match up perfectly. You really do not lose much clearance. Caution: Use gloves on both hands or wait until the washers cool down before installing. The small amount of grinding makes those washers a bit hot. Obviously use gloves and eye protection during the grind operation. You really only need to take 1/16 off of two sides of the washers...just like in the video.
