Rubicon Rock Rails
 
Just bought a set of take0ff Rubi rails from CL for $70, but didn't have the hardware. Anyone know where I can pick up the little metal slides that the rails get bolted thru? (other than the dealership)

I got mine from autozone.

No Problem.

I also bought a set of take-offs. They included the hardware, but when I went to bolt them up, my JKU already the hardware in place (painted) to mount to. Is this odd?

From what I've read the 2013 don't need the clip piece as the threads are built in. Maybe they put bolts in the threads too. Mine came with stock side steps that mounted in the same place as the rubi rails so I used the hardware from the steps to mount my rubi rails. The 2013's also come with the pinch seam trimmed from the factory.

pardon my ignorance... i'm still waiting on my ordered unit... do you have to remove the rock rails for installation of steps??

Yes you do. ACE rock sliders are the only sliders or rails that I know of that fit with the stock rubi rails and will work as a step. Here is a pic of the rubi rails with ACE rock sliders.

i'm looking at a set of 2009 rubi rails on CL for my 2013 JKU. the seller says they'll fit 2007 to 2010 models. these should fit my 2013, shouldn't they?

jwilson2598 07-31-2013 06:31 PM

Yes, they will fit your 2013

par921 07-31-2013 07:12 PM

Great thanks for the confirmation, jwilson!
