Great Charlie and the Chocolate Factory reference. That may be a first on this forum.

My daughter had no issue at 7. Maybe a grab handle mounted low on the roll bar would help. Mine uses the door armrest for a handle.

Ill do that grab handle. I just got done making some out of paracord so it would be easy to make one more! Thanks for the tip

Not to be a bandwagon jumper here, but the Ace Rock Rails were the first mod to our JK. My 8 year old son who has MD has no problem climbing up on them. And I stood on them with no give taking off the top. Great functional item that also looks great.

So I have a 2009 JKUR and these look very tempting. I am iun the same boat, little kids and a short wife who would like to have a step.

Do I understand you right, you bolt these over the rubi rails that I have already? Do they effect ground clearance much? They look beefy; are they going to last on the trail?

Just want to make sure I buy the right thing and not waste my money.

Thanks!

SS,

Yes, these will work great for that! I am in the same boat as you and these worked out great! Yes, you can even bolt these on OVER your RUBI Sliders, no problem. They work great together. Heck, we have guys that have the non-rubi's looking for sliders to add to them!

Also, these will take a HECK of a beating on the trails. No worries there my friend...

-Jason

I have a Sport and bought a set of used Rubi rails to install before installing the Ace. It's a great combination, looks great and provides more protection.

Checkout the gigantic Ace Rails thread:

You have a PM. I want these on my JKUR! Hopefully shipping to WA won't kill me.

Thanks!

To add to Jason's answer a little. They bolt in with the body mount bolts behind the rubi rails, and fit under them with a small gap between. You will not lose any ground clearance as they are still higher than the frame. They definitely take a beating. Don't think its recommended but I used them to jack up a side and they barely moved.

Ugh! Wish I had found this before purchasing the rock rails/steps I just had put on. I got Bestop HighRock rails with retractable steps and they are awful. I'm waiting for the shop that did it to have time to take them off. My husband has been really busy or he would have done the install for me. That would have saved a lot of hassle because I would have seen how bad they were before putting them on. The ad says they are spring loaded, but they have a bungee strap in them. And they rattle terribly just going down the road.
Looks like I will order some Ace sliders, too : )

WOW... yeah, I would swap them with the ACE sliders. I am pretty sure you would be a lot happier!

So, watching the installation video (for the ACE sliders), there is a part where you grind the washer to fit. I don't have a power grinder . . . Is there another solution, or do I have to just go and rent one? Does anyone make replacement washers that do fit?

The washer is attached to the bolt, so you can't just buy a new washer. I guess you could buy a new bolt and washer, but you'd still have to grind the washer.

Grinders are cheap. Either buy one or find someone that has one.
