Why pay for the Rubicon package just to take it all off? Our DIY factory fit kit allows you to maintain a factory appearance while turning your sliders into a useful step and rub rail. The factory rails are plenty up to the task for these two purposes. We utilize 10 Ga mild steel that has been dimple died for traction and increased rigidity on all of the internal gussets and step plates. We use 1.75 0.120 tubing for the kicker bar and main rails. When welded properly, the curb appeal and functionality of your factory rails is dramatically increased. JL kits ship with 2 internal step plates and the kicker bars. JT kits ship with 3 internal gussets due to the additional 17" of length on the body. All kits ship with a pair of 1:1 templates for the rear kicker to aid in fitment and installation. Additional installation tips can be found on our YouTube Channel:
If you would prefer to supply your own tubing to save on shipping costs, please see the sister listing for the "Bracket Only Kit".
We will be releasing a frame tie in kit shortly that will transform these steps/rub rails into a slider that is up to the task of protecting those body panels from even the hardest hits. They will be 100% bolt on, so you can install these rails now and add the frame tie ins later.
