Rock Rails

I really like the look of the Ace Rock rails and I see all of you give them great reviews. I prefer the setup with the rubicon rails and then the ACE rails. I then noticed they make a Enhanced Rubicon Rail that looks like a combo rail making it similar to incorporating the two above and it will cost you less to do. Does anyone have any reviews or info on those enhanced rails. I had a set of fabricated rails on my last jeep but the only complaint I had about them is the powdercoating did not hold up and after about a year in NY salt. I had to have them sandblasted and redo them from rust. That is one reason why I am leaning towards the Mopar rails. Seems to be less problems with them rusting then the fabricated stuff. Thoughts an either is appreciated.

The mopar enhanced rock rails are the ones used on the C.O.D MW3 edition jeep. They look great, are functional as a step, and have a thick/strong looking textured coating to them. In my opinion, the best looking rail out there. Waiting on my jeep order to arrive and I already have a set ready to install.

I have both the Rubi rails [takeoffs] and ACE rails on my 2012 2dr JK. They fit well together and look great. If you go with this setup, just make sure you torque the ACEs'.

haven't seen problems with the ACE rails....yet....if I do, bed liner will be a quick fix. I don't think you could go wrong with the rubi/ace set up. good luck.

I installed a set - write up here: Mopar Enhanced Rock Rails

The Ace's are nice, but they eat up ground clearance under the sill, which I don't like. Keep in mind, the Enhanced Rails have a different finish than the COD, though they are the same rail. The finish is smoother than the COD ones ... for comparison, it's the same finish as the AEV bumpers. The CODs have a rougher texture.
