    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Rocker Side Panel Kit, fitting your 4-door 2007 and up JK. Today, we're going to talk through the installation of this side panel kit, which is a very simple one-out-of-three-wrench install. These are going to attach to your Jeep with some screws, and also some 3M adhesive, but there's no drilling necessary, so this is going to be very easy for anyone to do in their driveway in about an hour. We'll talk more about the installation in just a second. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of this side panel kit. This side panel kit is mostly an aesthetic mod. This is designed to cover up the otherwise unfinished looking pinch seam on the side of your Jeep, giving your Jeep a much more finished look from the profile view. If you don't go with something like this, there are other options to cover up the pinch seam, but most of them are going to be armor, which is going to be much more expensive and a lot heavier. So, if you're not in the market for something that offers a ton of off-road protection and you just want that more finished look, I think this is going to be a nice option for you. This is going to provide a little bit of protection. If you have some side steps and you're constantly kicking that painted surface of your Jeep, this will help from getting some scratches on that rocker section if you're interested in that. These do come in a couple of different finishes. This has a diamond plate texture and these are also available in smooth, so you can get whichever look you like best on your Jeep. Overall, I think these are really fairly priced for something that is mostly an aesthetic mod, but does offer a little bit of scratch protection, as well. This rocker panel kit is made out of a polycarbonate material, which means it's going to be really strong and crack resistant. It's also UV resistant, so it's not going to fade in the sun over time. As I said before, this does have a diamond plate texture to it, but there's also a smooth version available if you're more interested in that look. As far as the way these attach to your Jeep, they will attach to the existing holes on the pinch seam, and they'll also use some 3M adhesive to attach, making the install very simple. This is going to be a very simple one-out-of-three-wrench install that won't take you more than an hour to complete. Even if you already have some side rocker protection, or even a side step on your Jeep, as long as it only bolts to the back side of the pinch seam, you can use these in conjunction with whatever you already have. In order to get these installed, because you are using some 3M adhesive, you are going to want to make sure that the painted surface of your Jeep is very clean. Use a good alcohol-based cleaner or an alcohol prep pad to clean the area before attaching any adhesive. You're also going to want to make sure that you install these when the temperature is moderate, around 70 degrees. If you install these when it's very hot or very cold, the 3M won't have a chance to set up and you may have a problem with binding. So, the first step in this installation, aside from cleaning that painted surface, is to start with the 3M adhesive backing being peeled off. You're going to want to peel the corners of that adhesive up a little bit so when you bolt these on the side of the Jeep, you can still grab that covering. Then, you'll use the included screws to bolt these in place, and finally, peel the rest of the backing off of the 3M adhesive, following along, pressing the new side panel kit onto the painted surface of your Jeep, making sure you get some good adhesion. As I said before, this whole process isn't going to take you more than an hour to complete. You're just going to need some traditional hand tools and a good alcohol-based cleaner. This side panel kit comes in at right around $80. The smooth

    Versatility. The Rugged Ridge Body Armor Rocker Side Panel Kit has two side rocker panels that protect your vehicle and enhance its looks. Just apply touch-up paint on dents and scratches to prevent rusting and install these armors on the damaged area to cover it up.

    Tough Construction. These Jeep Wrangler JK accessories are made of high-quality, UV-treated thermoplastic for a reliable performance. They feature a black diamond plate finish for a tough, off-road look.

    Application. The side armors in this Jeep Wrangler side panel kit can be attached using the ultra-strong 3M tape or with screws. They are designed for 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK 4-door models.

        Hello, is this black diamond textured also available for the Wrangler JK 2 door?

        • Thank you for your question! We offer a version of the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Rocker Guards for the 2-Door model. I listed the link below. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-body-armor-kit-jk-1165106.html

        I have a 2016 Jeep Rubicon HR and would like these side panels. The video mentions they are available in textured/smooth. If so, I would like the part number. Thanks

        • Rugged Ridge also offers the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Smooth Rocker Guard Kit - Black Matte (Item #: J103542) for a 4 door JK that can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rr-smooth-rocker-armor-jku-1165112.html or the 2 door option (Item #: J103541) which can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rr-smooth-rocker-armor-jk-1165111.html

        Will this work with sidesteps/nerfbars attached to to pinch seam? this one in particular... RUGGED RIDGE TEXTURED BLACK SIDE STEP PAIR (07-17 WRANGLER JK 4 DOOR) Thanks in advance.

        • Unfortunately the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Rocker Side Panel Kit - Pair, Black (07-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) attaches to the pinch seam so it would not be able to be installed with side steps/nerfbars that attach to your pinch seem as well.

            Rugged Ridge Rocker Guards on a Jeep Rubicon

            Rocker Guards look great. Solid product and an easy install. The guards cover up the pinch seam on the body perfectly. I have a Rubicon and really wanted to cover up the area where I had removed the factory Rubicon rails. Plus, Extreme Terrain is a pleasure to do business with.

            Hadn’t even installed them yet!!!!!

            I love the look but installation process is very frustrating because apparently they need to be installed in warmer temperatures and it’s impossible right now in Chicago! So unfortunately they will be laying and waiting there for the spring.

            Nice product poor fit

            Cool product , seems the tape mounted on product on drivers side is to high , you can see from looking at Jeep , also has extra length at end near rear wheels on 2017, had to cut some off, overall little disappointed in fitment

            Heavy duty, great finish, tough looking, and they look great on my jeep! Garage time was a little long since I had to remove the stock Rubicon guards first, but the entire process went very smoothly.

            Gotta Have Rocker Guards

            We own a Jeep Wrangler and needed something to complete the look and protect the body. Tried some local shops and the suggestions were costly and would look cheap! Found the Rocker Guards and knew that was the solution! Installed easy some minor modifications, and now get lots of complements.

            I would buy again

            Pros: Easy enough to install. Looks good. Fits with my side steps. Protects and hides the pinch seam. Cheaper than other options, few that there were. Cons: Not a perfect fit on my 2014 JKU: the overall length was about an inch or two too long; the cuts were slightly off at the front and rear fender locations; holes are pre-drilled, so can't install misaligned. (see uploaded photos) I had rubi rails on my 2014 JKU, wanted the "Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps" because my young daughters had difficulty climbing in, but the rails were not compatible with the steps. Removing the rubi rails exposed the pinch seams on each side of the Jeep. The Rugged Ridge Rocker Guards work almost perfectly with the step. They do a great job at hiding and protecting the pinch seam, especially now that I have a step and people could easily 'kick' the side of my Jeep slightly. Unsure if the supplied hardware is rustproof; easily solved if not. I would buy again, even though the fit is slightly off.

            Style and functionality

            Easy to install and they look great! I've had these on for about a year now and no problems whatsoever! I have to admit, installing the first one took some time but once I figured it out (terrific lack of instructions) the second one went on in about 10 minutes.
