Nice looking bad execution
This is among few reviews I've given. Also, this is the second and last Barricade product I will ever buy. The assembly is not bad, however the fit, once installed, is simply off on all doors except the driver's side and I tried every trouble shooting method to fix. What's particularly disconcerting is that Barricade designs specifically for JK Wranglers. The expectation is that, once assembled, they should simply fit with minor adjustments; easily and tightly. These (with the exception of the driver) do not; at all. While considering this product, I looked at the few reviews that were out there. One of the reviewers said the same (I should've listened) but I called ET and asked them regardless because, like I said they are good looking doors and matched the design I wanted. The customer Svc rep acknowledged this review and comment and said that, since, they've corrected the issue (they have not) and have not received any complaints. (Well, this is at least the second one) WHile this is a really nice looking design it simply is not worth the (considerable) price. I would suggest looking at other manufacturers. For that matter, I would steer clear of Barricade products altogether. As said, this is my second. The first was a rear bumper and matching rear tire carrier. Once installed, the latch to the carrier blocked 1/2 of my PA license and it failed inspection. It shows this in the pic online but I neglected to take notice. My only options were to "specialty-mod" the door for $6-$800 or replace it (I did the latter with an OR-Fab). This is significant because I believe Barricade is a PA based company and they should have, at least, known to have designed the product to gel with PA State inspection code. Oh well, live and learn.
