i couldnt resist. I didnt let a 5yo do the cutting wheel, obviously, but he literally file finished the bracket, painted it, and installed them from there. Im baffled as to what has thrown people for a loop on these. Its simpler than some of his Star Wars lego kits.

For the Mojave, did you get with or without the cutout? Can you take a pic of the front. Please

Based on my own experience get the ones with the cut out unless you opted for the heavy duty Mopar rails with step assist. They are wider and a different profile than standard rock rails. I haven’t decided if I am ordering uncut ones or modifying the cut out ones to fit. Most people just keep the standard rock rails, I just opted for these because I live on a gravel road.

I just returned a full set of Weathertech flaps. Nothing lined up front or back. Called. They said they don't have amodel for the max tow. I bought the Sport S version.
Now I have a set of front Rokblok

Just my opinion here but I was also disappointed in how my front flaps fit on my Overland. The issue is the plastic step that most overlands have installed on them, it interferes with the flap from fitting properly and you end of having to seriously bend the flap to get even 1 screw in. I ended up leaving mine off. When I contacted RokBlokz about it they suggested cutting out a hole for the step to fit. This wasn't an option for me as I paid really a high price for these AND they were advertised to fit, which they did not. I do not have the tools to cut this cleanly and professionally, thought it would look like a hack job on my brand new truck (dream truck!) Rear flaps are awesome. Fronts on an overland... not so much.

I followed the “optional” front flap mounting method and found it worked well in my Overland.

do you have a pic now with the rokblockz and the exhaust? Those are the next 2 upgrades and I know josh from afe said we needed to grind down the bracket. Just want to see what the finished product looked like

Correct. The bracket will need to be cut back. Dont quote me exactly, but i think i came down 3.5” from the frame mounting hole; and cut across the entire bottom until i was about 2-3” from the inboard most flap hole. Im happy to measure and take some pictures, but ill forget. Shoot me a pm tomorrow afternoon and ill grab it.

It wasnt bad. Did the cut, had my son file finish it, paint it, and install it. Still seems plenty sturdy.

Nice to meet you.
I dont like spending $$$ on things I have to re-do to make them fit. If I wanted to do that I would have just made them. Free time to me is limited.

the issue is the holes, slots are off. Had to already fix the rear brackets by re-milling the slots to fit the hardware they sent with it. Pretty big over site right there. Now I am dealing with the fronts.
Bought and installed mine in September. Mine lined up, though I do remember the rigidness of them made it a bit difficult to get lined up in the front. My only real issue was the stainless screw length for the back when you stack all of the pieces together. I had to go and purchase screws that were 1/4" longer to get them together, because there was just not enough there for the thread to catch. I took pics of the issue, and how I corrected it, and sent it to RB, and they got back to me the next day and thanked me for the feedback. I didn't ask for anything because my only goal was to give them feedback to help future customers. Responsiveness was good, and I hope they fixed the issue. Good luck, but I think you may have gotten something incorrectly.

Mine fit just fine. The entire instillation for the front and back took about 1 1/2 hours. I did have difficulty determining which side was smooth and which was textured.

The parts were marked they were the correct parts.
The fronts had to be “adjusted” to fit. The groove to allow the tab to be in the outside of the fender was 1: to shallow by about 1/2”and 2: the slot needed to be widened about 1/4” to get holes to line up.

The reason for the number is to call and get measurements so I knew where to adjust.

I watched there video and other before I even bought them. And to be honest the easy install was a selling factor due to I dont have time to waste.

I’m having the same problem with the Front Reg/Originals fitting my 2021 Willys and feel like the modifications you mentioned are exactly what would need to happen. What did you use to adjust them?

Waiting on further communication from RB.
