My Barricade's Have Arrived

I ordered the Barricade steps/sliders a few weeks ago through Ryan at Extreme Terrain.. They were backordered and not expected to ship until April, but they ended up shipping after only another week or so ..
These things are pretty hearty! The UPS shipping weight was 86 pounds so that puts each one at about 43 pounds. The box was beat to sh!t, and the UPS guy couldn't lug it up the steps and just left it in the driveway, but they look perfect..
I should have them installed by tomorrow night and I'll post some pics.

He actually did better than me! I had a customer order a set of Bushwacker fender flares and I left a notice for them to pick the box up at the post office. The darn box was taller than me and there was no way I could even get it in and out of my jeep without busting something. My arms weren't long enough to even get a grip around the box. And I didn't want to try to shove it using my knees, etc. and risk damaging them.


My thoughts were "they should have shipped them UPS because those guys are strong!"

Waiting to see pictures of your sliders!!!

Are these the "Enhanced Rubi Rails"? IF SO, be careful not to hit them on rocks out here is the SoCal area. The set I had on my wife's JK blent and damaged the body the first time they took a light hit on Cleghorn. I would advise caution running them on anything black diamond rated like in BigBear or Calico. We went back to just running the basic factory Rubicon rails on her JK and they have performed very well.

I'm sorry that the box was so banged up, but I'm glad the sliders aren't damaged! I can't wait to see pictures of them bolted up!

This is what I got: Barricade Wrangler Rock Sliders

I got them for a step as much/more than for protection.. I won't be hitting any black-diamond trails any time soon.

They are awesome!! My box was all jacked up too...must be something with UPS because the actual sliders were packaged perfectly and not damaged at all. Happy customer here...one of my favorite add ons to date actually. Congrats on a solid purchase.

Those will hold up on the trail for you if you do end up dropping it off a ledge onto the rocker! You'll also get a useful step and door ding protection. Enjoy!

Those are not the "Enhanced Rubi Rails". If memory serves sections of the run on the 15th, White Mountain, are black diamond. It's a good run we are still on the fence about going.

When UPS delivered my Barricade sliders I watched them literally drag them up the driveway and drop them near my front door. One of the sliders was half way out of the box. Neither slider was damaged because they were very well wrapped in plastic and foam. Cardboard is not the proper packing media for something weighing nearly 90 lbs.

Install went pretty quick & easy. The toughest part was getting out those body-bolts. .Of course ONE did not want to come out no matter what, but I eventually won. My 11 year old tested them and gave them the thumbs-up.. "much easier to get in and out!" ..
Below is 1 "before" and 2 'after' ..

They look good , I'm just looking for something that cover the pinch seem. Not a fan of that opening. . That's the reason I'm looking into the enhanced rubi rails.

UPS can do a number on big heavy boxes but I'm really glad to hear that Barricades packaging kept the rails in good condition!

They look great on there! I'm glad they got the nod and make getting in and out easier. Between the step function and the protection, they're a win!

I've seen people paint the seam and it becomes nearly invisible. It's really all about what you like! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Ryan, can you give some clarification on the 35 ft lb torque requirement specified in the Barricade instructions vs the OE body bolt torque of 85 ft lb?

That is an unfortunate typo. I just talked to the people responsible and they're going to get it changed ASAP. The FSM torque specs are the way to go. Thanks for the feed back!

So what is the secret to getting these bolts off before installing the rails? Any tricks?
