    Rock Hard 4x4 3rd Row Accessory Bar Install

    For the added safety of my 3rd row passengers, I installed this today. Big props to Jason at RH4x4 for all his help. I freaked a little when the bar didn't just sit on my stock cage perfectly. We PM'd and talked on the phone to resolve my concerns. Jason can confirm this, but they build their parts from Chrysler's specs and the cage is supposed to be square, top to bottom. Mine is not, never been wrecked or rolled. To be clear, I am not bashing RH4x4 at all. This is just informational for anyone else considering this. I'm quite pleased with the end result and Jason's excellent customer service! Thanks again Jason!

    Actual measurements of my Jeep...



    Measurements of RH's bar based on Chrysler's specs...



    Since the bottom was dead on I started from there and worked my way up. Using a dead blow hammer I hit and tapped until the top collars sat squarely on the stock cage and then level too. I eye-balled it a lot from the front and did a lot of measuring.

    Here's how it sat on the stock cage at first...

    Pass side top





    Driver's side top





    All bolted up!







    The inside measurement from floor to inside of the hard top was 41 1/4" so I was shooting for 40" on the additional bar. This way if I bolt lights or other things on there later I have room to work with.







    I will be pulling this to prime and paint with bedliner when I finish the DIY tube doors in the near future.

    Thanks again to RH4x4 and Jason!

    Great job on the 3rd row cage (RH-1032) install!

    To get the collars inside the factory padding without cutting the zipper, cut 2 2" slits in an X pattern on the INSIDE of the padding next to the zipper. Trust me, there's enough slack in the factory material that it'll give over our collars. Set the cap in place on your factory tube, slip the RH-1032 collars through the X slits, tighten hardware, and zip up padding.

    Done!

    Thanks! That makes sense. I'll do that when I pull to paint.

    Nice Jeep! Are you running wheel spacers with those tires? I'm considering going a similar route with mine.

    Thanks

    Thanks! No, no wheel spacers. I've considered it, but haven't made a final decision. I did rub on that air dam thing under the front bumper a little bit in my first off the pavement excursion and front disconnected. My plan is to make front and rear bumpers at home, so I'm not worried about the rubbing right now.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
