2007 JK Jeep 4 door Rock Bars

Awhile back a couple stopped by the shop to see if we had rock bars for the 4 door JK. I explained not yet but if they were willing to give up the jeep for a few days for us to design a set that would be great. We use 2 x4 rectangular steel for all of our other rock bars. The gentleman had requested that we use 2 x 6 on his. The purpose of this was to deflect road particles from the side of the jeep. We did not have a problem with this. We thought we could make the set for them like they wanted them but then just use the regular 2 x 4 for our design. Well this guy had a great idea. The 2 x 6 looks great on this jeep, so the JK’s get 2 x 6 rock bars. It pays to listen to the customer

Mounting brackets and hardware

With being so long they have 3 mounting points

Use Factory body mount bolts. No drilling

This is a very easy install.

After they picked the jeep up a while later they stopped by and they had a noise that had started after the rock bars were installed. After taking a look at things J
eff realized that on one of the corners it had to be rounded off a little more to keep from vibrating on the head of a bolt. I talked to the gentleman the other day and he said all is good. That’s what I like to hear. We want to thank them for letting us use the jeep.

Winter In Buena Vista, Colorado

Well the main project today was trying to keep the snow plowed so everyone could get up the hill. Winter finally hit Buena Vista, CO today.
We received 2 to 3 ft depending were you were. They say we have more coming the next 2 to 3 days. It’s looking more and more like it’s going to be a white Christmas. We installed several snow plows early fall and now they get the chance to use them
