Westin Snyper Triple Tube Rock Rails Reviews
The instructions say you have to take out all the body frame bolts off but, you don’t have to. You just need to remove the the nuts next to the body frame bolts. The only tricky (not difficult) part was keeping the “U” bolt in place when mounting the rock rails. If you are not careful you will push back into the frame. If that happens you may need to unmount and reposition the “U” bolt.
They look great and seem very sturdy. Will update once I really test them out.
Jeep used red loctite on the body bolts of the JL Wranglers. as a result, many people have snapped the body bolts, in the vehicle. i wanted sliders that would also function as really good, flat steps but did not want to mess with those body bolts. the instructions for these say to loosen the body bolts but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LOOSEN THE BODY BOLTS! you can maneuver the mounts for these sliders around the body bolts. you dont have to mess with the bold bolts AT ALL!
we are a short family and we have small children. we have 35s, a lift and a soft top. i wanted steps that have a nice, flat platform to stand on to help getting in and out of the jeep but also to stand on to lower or clean the soft top. i do take my wrangler on moderately aggressive trails so i wanted some sliders that could handle the rocks. these Westin Snypers are excellent for both. i have banged and slid my wrangler over some rocks with these westin sliders and while they do have some good scratches, they have zero dents or gouges or anything. these sliders are stout!
the only downside is they do sit a bit low. they are not lower than the frame of the vehicle but some times when you have to maneuver around a tall rock, they will hit the rock, where a low profile slider might clear. but this is acceptable to me in order to have a good, flat standing platform.
also, the stock photos Westin uses are incorrect. there is no C mount for the front body bolt. its an L shaped mount that bolts to the actual frame of the vehicle. there are only C mounts that attach to the middle and rear body bolts. but like i said, you do not have to even touch those bolts. you can angle the mounts into place fairly easily. i did so by laying under the slider and doing both the middle and rear mounts at the same time.
on a scale of 1 to 10 (most difficult), id give this install about a 6. basic socket set will do it.
Of all my Jeep add-ons, this was the best bang for the buck.
