    • Material: Black Thermoplastic
    • UV Treated Finish

    • Mounting Tape
    • Fits 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ Models
    Construction. Rugged Ridge's tub rail armor set is constructed of UV treated thermoplastic for long lasting durability and a clean finish. Instead of fading into a gray color, the UV treatment will protect the tub rail from the damaging effects of the sun. The thermoplastic can handle any weather conditions and adds a seamless appearance to your TJ. Each rail is approximately 42 inches long.

    Protection. This rail is designed to protect your Jeep's body from future scratches and chips. The rails are also intended for covering up existing damage.

    Application. Automotive mounting tape keeps these rails in place on your 1997 - 2006 TJ Wrangler.

        Will this still allow you to use the stock soft top? Will the plastic 'wedges' for the windows and corners still slide into place snuggly without interference?

        • The Rugged Ridge Body Tub Rail Armor will not interfere with fitment of the OEM soft top, and should not increase the effort needed to connect the windows and corners at the tub.

        If one uses this product, when wishing to install your hard top, can it easily be removed and reinstalled at a later date. I would primarily be using the soft top so for the most part not an issue. Thank you.

        • This connects with automotive tape, so while you can remove it, you would need to purchase automotive tape from your local auto shop to reinstall.

        I have a 2004 LJ, can the Hardtop be installed on top of these providing you drill holes for the hardware?

        • The rail will fit on a 2004 TJ Unlimited, though it will not provide complete coverage. It can not be guaranteed if the rail will fit with a hard top, even with modification.

        Will a LJ model of this fit better? Looks like there is a severe gap around where the door is. your main picture is used on other sites and clearly shows the gap. The customer image even has a black spacer of sorts to cover the gap. Any ideas for a better fit?

        • The Rugged Ridge Body Tub Rail Armor will fit similarly to TJ and LJ models.

        I need this for my 2015 jk , these won't fit , right ?

        • The Rugged Ridge Body Tub Rail Armor will not fit on the JK Models, as they are designed for the TJ's body. Unfortunately at this time we do not carry any similar product for the JK.

            Looks great

            These new rails look fantastic I was able to install them in less than 15 minutes they really clean up the rails covering up any scuffs or chipped paint very big bang for the buck and the price you can't beat.

            Quick and simple add for a fresh, clean look

            Install took minutes and transformation was immediate. Covered scratched up / dingy rail...... looks like it was always supposed to be there..... Very nice look.

            Tub Rails

            So easy to add. Look great but need holes drilled for hardtop to bolt on top of. 3M glue holds them down and should last a long, long time.

            So far so good

            I've only had these on for 3 days but they look great and fit perfect. I'm always a little uneasy with 2 sided tape so time will tell if they hold up.

            The way to go

            Covers blemishes and scratches from the Hardtop over the years. and looks BEAUTIFUL! the black matches great with my jeep and might i say all though pricey worth it in the end! Go out and buy a pair! You can even use them with your Hardtop on if you wanted to. But for the Jeepers that go topless all summer this is the way to go.

            Body tub rail armor

            This product was fantastic. It covers up the marks your hard top leaves over the years. It also gives a great look when the soft top is off. It was a very easy install and fits great. I definitely recommend it to anyone for a cheap easy good look.
