    Hard Rock vs Regular Rubicon Rails

    I currently have the regular Rubicon rails on my JKUR. they have served me well, but sometimes they let rocks get a little close to the body. Someone local is selling at set of hard rock rails with the extra tube for $150. I could sell my current rails and only be out $50 bucks or so. Eventually when budget allows I will upgrade to something else, but for $50 bucks lost it seems like a great purchase. Anyone got any different opinions?

    Hard Rock or RockHard4x4? If RockHard4x4, that's a good price.

    Yeah for 50 bucks go for it. They’ll give you a little better protection.

    Hard Rock not RockHard4x4. Its just the upgraded rock rails, they have a tube welded on

    These were stock on my jeep. I cannot speak to functionality, but they seem like strong rails. I haven't had a chance to torture test them. I've heard they will show more damage versus some of the more robust aftermarket options out there.

    My off road experience is limited to 2 trips to Rausch Creek with a couple groups from here. My Hard Rock rails took some hits and held up with the exception of the texture getting carved off but that kinda goes without saying. I’d say for $50 they’re a nice upgrade and actually provide a “step” as well. You could probably recoup your $ at a later date if you don’t beat the shit out of them.

    If anything they work as an ALRIGHT step for the vertically challenged. I had some on one of my JKs and they are definitely stronger than the standard rubi rails. I’d do it!

    I have beat the crap out of my Hard Rock rails since 2016 and they have more than surprised me. Other than the coating being cut and scarred, they have functioned very well in my opinion. For a net cost of $50, I’d jump on them. IMG_8264.jpg

    My factory rubi rails have held up amazingly well so I can only imagine the hard rock. I’ve been looking for a set for myself honestly. Either that or the recon sliders

    my wife likes them. she is short and uses them to get in , as they are wider and you can step on them.

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.
