Simple installation for anyone.
I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Bushwacker Textured Rocker Guard and Sill Plate, fitting all 4 door 2007 to 2016 JKs.This product is designed to protect your rocker panels and your sill plates from people getting in and out of the Jeep and either kicking the rocker, or stepping directly onto the sill. Those are two places that can take a lot of abuse and can easily have the paint scratched or rubbed off. This product takes care of both of those problems at the same time. This also does a really nice job of finishing off the otherwise unfinished pinch seam. A lot of people will try to install a factory-style Rubi rail just to cover the pinch seam on their Jeep and give the Jeep a more finished appearance. This does that same thing but it does it for less cost, it does it at less weight, and it also provides the sill protection which those factory-style Rubi rails do not. So for all those reasons, I really like this product. It seems to be really fairly priced for what you get.These are made of Bushwacker's Dura-Flex 2000 TPO material which is similar to the material that they make their fender flares out of. It's designed to be UV resistant so it shouldn't fade, and it should hold up pretty well for what these are designed to do. They're designed to install really easily onto the Jeep using the pre-installed 3M tape and some screws and J nuts that hold it onto the pinch seam.Now, as with a lot of other Bushwacker products, this is really complete. They include the alcohol prep pads that you need to clean the surface so that the 3M tape gets a good, strong bite. Now this is plastic and even though it goes on the rocker, it is not full-on rocker protection from rocks. You can't go off-road, drop your Jeep off a ledge onto the rocker and expect this to hold up. It absolutely will not. However, again, for what it's designed for, I think it does a really nice job, which is paint protection for the rockers and for the sills, as well as providing that much more finished look that the otherwise empty pinch seam just doesn't have from the factory.If you are somebody who takes your Jeep off-road and you need that stronger rocker protection, this mounts directly onto the pinch seam, but if you get a rocker guard that mounts onto the body mounts, you can probably mount this in conjunction with those stronger rocker guards. That'll be a pair that looks good, gives you paint protection and also off-road rock protection, and really is the best of both worlds. Like I said, this is designed to be completely bolt-on and the installation is really easy. Any time you're working with 3M tape, you want to make sure that the surface you're attaching the 3M to is really clean. And to do that you can use the included alcohol prep pads that come right in the kit.So the first thing is to wipe down the whole rocker guard and the sills of the Jeep. From there you can install the J nuts onto the pinch seam and loosely bolt these pieces onto the Jeep. Bushwacker has done a nice job at leaving the backing of the 3M nice and long so you can put those bolts into place. So grab onto the backing and slowly pull the backing out while you're pressing the piece onto the vehicle. Again, Bushwacker does a really nice job of thinking of all of those things when they design a product like this. The whole installation of these shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes to get done both sides, and you won't need any specialty tools to get it done.Like I said before, I think these are really fairly priced for what you get. You just have to remember what this is. This is paint protection and this is not rocker protection from dropping your Jeep off of a ledge onto a rock. But if you know that and you're buying them for paint protection, they'll get the job done better than a lot of other products that I've seen on the market, and they are priced fairly.So if you're looking to finish off the pinch seam on your Jeep and also add some protection for the paint on your rocker guard and your sills, this product will do all of those things and do it well. This is a nice, easy installation and Bushwacker has been able to design a product that works great and does it at a low cost.So that's my review of the Bushwacker Textured Rocker Panel and Sill Plate fitting all 4 door 2007-2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.
