With my ride supposedly on the way, I'm thinking more seriously about accessories.

I couldn't order the 4xe Rubicon with the $925 steppable rails that you can get on the gas version. I see there are tons of cheaper options, but sounds like many mount to the body and don't adequately protect. Not sure how the MOPAR ones mount.

1) Are there any known differences between the gas and 4xe that would affect the way they mount, or should any designed for 2018-2021 JLU Rubicon work?

2) Any product recommendations? I was eyeing these LOD Signature Series Frame Mounted Rocksliders and install video
. About $800!


For an onboard compressor to air up, I'm not going to rip the fender apart. Can you mount it under the hood here on the 4xe?
. I watched this video about under the hood of the 4xe,
, but starting to think the one with ARB is the 3.6L Pentastar and has more room under there.
218


I was going to go with the single ARB compressor https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TXRM27...&colid=BGUEY8XTPXE1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1. I thought I could just power the compressor with the aux wires, but sounds like only to trigger the ARB relay (not actually power it?) - https://arbusa.com/arb-compressor-installation-tips/. That makes an under-seat mount much less desirable.

Thanks,
Rob

It’s been 6 mo & not an 4Xe or 4Dr but… Late last year around one of the two big holidays, I ordered LOD’s Destroyer step sliders to replace my stock Rubi Rails. During that period, the LOD web site was offering a huge discount and hoodie with free shipping & zero tax. They arrived fast, were packed super secure and are very strong since they’re frame mounted. Highly recommend. Had to be careful with my wiring for the eTorque lithium battery, but no idea if LOD makes a 4Xe variation. Recommend you call them to ask if their std 4Dr version fits your ride. They were very helpful when I spoke to them late last year - LoD Offroad | Rock Sliders

Mine is coming with the factory one, but in hindsight, may be i should have gotten a after market one that you can actually step on. the lady is short and i will lift the Jeep eventually - that combination wont work well (for me :p)

re: mounting the air compressor - after reading 50 pages of it on JL forum i have narrowed down to 2 locations - under driver or pax seat or the rear cargo compartment with american adventure labs mount and remote relocation kit for the air chuck etc (i will probably do this one)
