Ryan: Hey, what's up guys? Ryan here from Extreme Terrain, and today I'm here with the Barricade Enhanced Rubi Rails in textured black, fitting your 2018 and up two-door Jeep Wrangler JL.Now, this is going to be for those of you JL owners that are off roading enthusiasts and looking for a little more protection underneath and on the side that you're not going to get in that factory form.Now the Rubicon model is going to come from the factory with a Rubi Rail. This is going to provide a ton of protection for those vulnerable rocker panels. Maybe you went with a Sahara or a Sport model, and you're looking for that same sort of protection, but with a more affordable price tag.Now, the factory Rubicon Rails directly from Mopar can cost you over $400, and this is a very affordable alternative option. Now Barricade has created these to replicate that Rubicon Rail, but they also enhanced them a little bit. These are made of solid steel, and they have a tubing. They're fully welded up, making them a very strong unit.Now, they bolt just like the factory steps. They're going to bolt directly to the pinch weld into the underside of the body, and that's going to make this a very strong point.For those of you that are off roading on those really tough trails, and really like to go over those large obstacles, this is going to provide plenty of protection. These wrap underneath of your rocker panels, and they're going to protect that very vulnerable pinch weld. It is a very sensitive spot when you're going through those really tough trails, those rocky trails, and it has a tendency to cause a lot of damage if something were to hit you in the underbody.Now, just like the Rubicon Rail, you're going to get that full wraparound protection, but you're also going to get this little step that extends. This tubing is going to provide a little more protection and keep any obstacle that you may come across a little further away from you. Or, if you're in a parking lot, and you're looking just to deflect shopping carts, this is a great upgrade.It's a great upgrade for any Jeep owner, whether you're just looking for that aggressive off road appearance, trying to change up the look of your Wrangler, or if you're actually looking for some protection and functionality.These rock sliders can cost anywhere from $150, all the way up to over $600. They come in all different shapes and sizes. And, of course, some are do-it-yourself kits, bare metals, so on and so forth.These are made of heavy duty steel, and they're coated in a textured black powder coating that's going to provide an aggressive look, giving you those rugged good looks, and also, it's going to protect your investment from the elements.Now, along with providing that protection from any trail hazards you may come across, they're also going to help to deflect any mud or debris that you may kick up, and that's going to protect your body even more.Like I said, these are a very easy bolt-on. They come with brand new hardware that utilize factory mounting points. So we don't need to do any drilling or modification required. And these honestly are a very solid heavy duty item.Now, price wise, they're coming in right around $300, which makes them a very affordable option over factory rails, or many other options that we may have on the site.Now, as far as installation goes, I'm going to give this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You can get both of these installed in under two hours just using these hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install.Tools that we used for this install: 10 millimeter socket, 13 millimeter socket, 3/8ths drive impact, 1/4 inch drive ratchet.So there's one thing I'd like to mention before we get started. If you do have anything on the side, factory step, Rubicon Rail, you need to get those off. All that factory stuff is relatively easy to get off. You'll only need a 13 millimeter and a 10 millimeter to get those off.Now once you get all that stuff off, you're ready to install this. Now, our Jeep didn't really have anything, so we're just going to get ready to bolt this on. And there's one thing I'd like to point out before we get started. You want to pick the correct side. So, you do have a 50/50 shot at picking the correct side. However, our mounting point for the rear, we're going to have a little bit extending. And we're going to have this whole edge right here. This is going to wrap around.So, what I'm going to do is, it's a pretty heavy item, so I'll probably get someone to help me out. We're going to lift this up, and we're going to install these studs right here, through these holes in our pinch weld, and then we'll slide this thing on.Once we get this thing on, we're going to be installing some hardware. First thing I'm going to do is install our new hardware on these new studs poking out. Each one of these studs is going to get a flat washer, and then we're going to get these little, tiny nylon locknuts. So we'll do that for all four of these studs, the two up front and the two in the rear.Next we're going to do this section where it goes up through the body, so this bracket's going to extend. There's a little threaded hole there. So we're going to use the bolts that they provide us. Each bolt is going to get a lock washer and a flat washer, and we're just going to thread those up into the body. Same thing. We'll get this one in, and then we'll go to the back, get those installed, and then we'll tighten everything up.After we get all that hardware installed, we're going to go around and tighten everything up. On these nuts right here, we're going to use a 10 millimeter socket, just like the factory steps would come off. And then, for these bolts right here, we're going to use a 13 millimeter. So go ahead and tighten these up with a ratchet. Now we do have a little bit of play in these, so we want to push them up while we're tightening up.So we got our rail completely installed. You can see we have a very nice gap in between the body and the rail. Now, if the gap is a little tighter, or if these rails happen to touch the body, Barricade provides these spacers. Now, the spacers are different thicknesses. Those two studs that poke through the pinch weld, these will actually slide on. That's going to allow you to slide that rail out a little bit and give yourself a nice little gap, which is going to give you some extra peace of mind.However, we got this side installed. We got it all tightened up. So you can do the same exact thing to get the other side installed. That's going to wrap up my review and install.For more videos on products like this, check us out at extremeterrain.com.
